Lovebirds Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are clearly obsessed with each other. (See: all their coordinated outfits, their adorable public affection at award shows.) How do we find a love like theirs in our lifetimes, which are but a blink of the eye in the course of human history? The answer, apparently, is fate.
On Friday, A.Rod posted quite the throwback on his Instagram. It took us back twenty years ago, when an already-major pop star known as Jenny From the Block autographed a glam shot for a young, up-and-coming baseball player by the name of Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez. We can only assume that the shimmering wattage of Jenny’s skin illuminated served as an unassuming beacon of destiny. And (J.)Lo, a love was born.
“#TBT to almost 20 years ago when a big time global pop superstar signed a pic for a young ball player #lifecanbeafunnythingsometimes #pictureperfect #keepsake #jlo,” Rodriguez eloquently captioned his priceless photo. Check it out:
It wasn’t just A.Rod who was thrilled with this discovery, which definitely belongs in the Smithsonian (and not in storage.) Lopez left a comment on the Instagram photo, writing “Omg!! Who found that!!???” She reposted it to her own feed, once again expressing her surprise at what we should all agree is the newest national treasure:”Wow!! Had to repost!!! He found this cleaning out storage!!”
Blessed be destiny; blessed be the light of their love.
