It was only a matter of time before J.Lo fans and A-Rod fans gave the two stars’ budding relationship the super-couple nickname: J-Rod.
And Lopez responded to the nickname in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight at Thursday’s 2017 Billboard Latin Music Awards in Miami.
“I mean it’s fine, I don’t know,” she told Cameron Mathison. “We kind of thought that might happen because people who knew us were already doing it.”
“So you guys, it’s not like you were original,” she added with a smile, speaking to fans who’ve started using J-Rod.
On Monday, the Nuyorican superstar gave Ellen DeGeneres some details about how she and Rodriguez first began dating. Lopez described how the two simply ran into each other while she was having lunch in Los Angeles.
