The couple “still wish the best for each other and each other’s children,” even though it seems like they’ve put their relationship behind them
Alex Rodriguez, aka A-Rod, and Jennifer Lopez began dating in February 2017 but split four years later — a few months after the former baseball star proposed. On Wednesday, July 13, the former MLB star caught up with Martha Stewart and spoke to her on her podcast, The Martha Stewart Show, and had nothing but good things to say about his famous ex.
“Here’s what I’m going to tell you about Jennifer, and I told some of my colleagues here the other day, she’s the most talented person I’ve ever been with,” said A-Rod, 46, on the podcast. “Hardest worker. And I think she’s the greatest performer, live performer in the world today that’s alive.”

Of their relationship, he said: “Look, we had a great time. More importantly, we always put the children at the center of everything we do.”
The “On the Floor” singer is mother to twins Emme and Maximilian, 14, with her ex-husband Mark Anthony, while the three-time MVP is the father of Natasha, 17, and Ella, 14, with his ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis .
Being able to raise your girls today was “the greatest gift” according to A-Rod, whose father left his family when he was just 10 years old. The couple still wish for “the best for each other and each other’s children,” even though it seems they’ve put their relationship behind them.
The ‘Marry Me’ star and Ben Affleck, to whom she was briefly engaged in 2004, have since rekindled their romance. The two appeared to be back in sync, as the actor suggested again earlier this year.

All seems to be going well for J Lo now that she’s found love again with Affleck, while A-Rod seems a bit muddled in that department. The former MLB champion is ready to move on, but he hasn’t found the ideal match yet, despite being linked with a few women so far.
By dating the likes of RHONY’s Katie Holmes and Kelly Bensimon in recent months, A-Rod has fueled dating rumours. However, given A-Rod’s dedication to finding “the one” once more, neither of those relationships seem to have lasted.
A source told Us Weekly on Jan. 26, 2022, “He’s on the field looking for someone to have a serious, committed relationship with someday. He would love to be the next ‘J. Finding Lo’ – he just hasn’t, never met ‘her’. … At the moment he is single and having fun. It’s not easy for him to be in the spotlight.”
