A-Rod’s Dream Date Was Jennifer Lopez... 21 Years Ago!

Once upon a time in 1998, Alex Rodriguez was an MLB All-Star, and Jennifer Lopez was an actress gearing up to release what would become a hit album. Now the two are one of Hollywood’s cutest couples, and on their way to walking down the aisle!

Alex Rodriguez must have had a crystal ball (or a whole lot of hope) when he was just 22 years old, because in recently unearthed footage released by the MLB Network, he had one dream date at the top of his list: his now soon-to-be wife, J.Lo!

When asked what a dream date with Alex Rodriguez would look like, he answered without hesitation: “Jennifer Lopez. Hopefully, you can find me a date with her.”

Of course, A-Rod posted the serendipitous clip, with the caption, “I just had a feeling.”

It looks like he and Jennifer were in the cards, and that A-Rod has had a longtime crush that just happened to turn into his future bride.

The vintage video of A-Rod is reminiscent of one that "Access Hollywood" posted in January of Katherine Schwarzenegger, now engaged to Chris Pratt. When asked in a 2017 interview which Team Chris she was on (Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, or Chris Hemsworth), she had an interesting and foretelling response. Initially replying Chris Evans, she then changed her answer to Chris Pratt, because “he’s been looking good lately, so you never know.” Cut to a little over a year later, and now they're engaged!

Yup, you never know! If you look to A-Rod’s journey to J.Lo, dreams really do come true.
