One day at a time! Jennifer Lopez revealed that she and Alex Rodriguez are taking their time when it comes to wedding planning. The couple announced their engagement on March 9, and have been busy enjoying this next chapter in their lives. The singer just finished filming her new movie Hustlers and is preparing to go on tour while the former baseball player has a lot of new projects in the works. Needless to say, the duo already has a jam-packed schedule and don’t want to stress about their upcoming nuptials.
“It’s going good … I think we have a pretty busy year ahead of us, so you know, we are [taking it slow],” the Second Act star, 49, told Entertainment Tonight in an interview published on Tuesday, May 28.
The “On the Floor” artist divulged that she and her future hubby, 43, have been “looking at everything,” including possible venues, but “only when I have time. Most of the time, I’m working.” The A-listers are in it for the long haul so they haven’t put any pressure on themselves. She noted, “There’s no rush. We really see this as something that’s gonna be forever, and we’re gonna just take our time and do it right. And do it not rushed.”
The star is getting ready to launch the It’s My Party tour on June 7 and she’s been rehearsing “nine, 10, 11 hours” a day in preparation for it. Alex and her 11-year-old twins Max and Emme, whom Jen shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, will be coming along for the ride ahead of her 50th birthday on July 24.
“It’s going to be a concert tour, but my aim is to make it feel like an intimate party as well,” Jennifer explained about what fans can expect. “We’re all celebrating together. We’re dancing, we’re singing, we’re having a good time. I want to create a different atmosphere than normal just watch me do my thing. I want it to be interactive.”
Jennifer and Alex certainly have a lot to celebrate this year!
