Jennifer Lopez + Alex Rodriguez Make Couple’s Red Carpet Debut at Met Gala
J. Rod have officially gone public — Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, who confirmed their relationship just weeks ago, showed up together on the 2017 Met Gala's red carpet last night (May 1) for the first time and gave fellow attendees something to smile about.
The annual celebration, the 2017 installment of which honored Comme des Garçons icon Rei Kawakubo, landed on the "Art of the In-Between" as a theme. Still, there was no ambiguity when it came to Rodriguez and Lopez, who looked completely content together.
"You're never fully dressed without a smile," Lopez captioned a shot that found her beaming in her beau's company. And fans shared ringing endorsements.
"The best accessory you have ever had on the red carpet is @arod," one commented on the photo, while another noted "You TWO REALLY look good together! Perfect! May you two be blessed for long together."
Rodriguez first confirmed the relationship on a March episode of The View, during which he said he and Lopez genuinely connected over their love of life's simple pleasures.
“She just likes simple things. I mean, she’s a very, very simple person,” he said. “Loves family. Is a great sister. Is a great daughter…She was a track star in high school and junior high.”
