Lopez' mother and her new boyfriend have the same last name

According to E! Online, J.Lo just introduced her mother, Guadalupe Rodriguez, to A-Rod, and the trio enjoyed a fun day out in the city together. The three were photographed laughing and enjoying each other's company, bundling up in jackets to keep warm in the cool New York City air.

Lopez and Rodriguez are both from the city. Jennifer was born in the Bronx, and Alex was born in Washington Heights.

A-Rod's sister referred to J.Lo as the Spanish word for sister-in-law on Instagram

The celebrity couple has been getting to know each other's loved ones over the past few months they have been dating. Last month, Jennifer was reportedly spending some quality time with Rodriguez's sister, Susy Dunand.

The ladies snapped a few photos together for social media, and Dunand even referred to J.Lo as her "cuñi," which means sister-in-law.

A-Rod and J.Lo had known each other for years before dating

Industry insiders claimed that J.Lo and A-Rod have "known each other for years" but haven't dated before because the "timing wasn't right." The couple first met 12 years ago at Yankee Stadium before a game, according to the New York Daily News.

Rodriguez and Lopez are now both divorced and parents of two.

"He loves family and so does she. For Jennifer, family comes first."
A-Rod recently appeared on The View, where he opened up to the panel about his relationship with the singer and Shades of Blue actress.
