Jennifer Lopez pumps weights during sweaty workout with shirtless beau Alex Rodriguez in Italy4 min read


Jennifer Lopez is credited for her flawless figure and proving she works hard to maintain her frame, the singer, 49, was seen embarking on a sweaty workout while on board a luxury yacht in Italy with her beau Alex Rodriguez. 

The couple are currently holidaying on Italy, but taking time out of their break to exercise, Jennifer was seen working up a sweat while pumping weights in the sunshine. 

She was clad in a very scanty bikini top and lyrcra leggings for the training session, while her baseball star boyfriend, 43, opted to go shirtless to embrace the Mediterranean heat.

Their appearance on board the luxury yacht comes after A Rod was urged by fans to pop the question to his girlfriend of over a year. 

He had shared a clip of All I Have hit-maker serenading him during a date night on their Italian break, with the hilarious sports star attempting to steal her thunder by focusing the camera on himself for the majority of the video. 

His clip won a slew of praise from fans, with many crediting how ‘real’ the couple seem together and others urging him to get down on one knee.

They wrote: ‘Loved it, keeping real…the way she is sitting is simply real life!

‘You guys are such a perfect couple.

‘Jen stole it and you are there lol #believetheringiscoming.

‘You two!!! Never stop believing!! Your both my favorite couple right now! You couldn’t be more perfect for each other! Jen always looks Gorgeous and Glowing! But now you both are glowing!! You both radiate with happiness! and to think all this time your souls have wanted to connect and it finally happened! Now put a ring on it! So we can say ” And they lived happily ever after”!!!! Best to you both! You & your children deserve it!!!

‘Love you two together you make a fantastic couple.

‘Thought you were going to [propose] there for a minute @arod.

‘Best performance you’ll make is when you get down on one knee in front of that queen!

‘You guys make such a nice couple. Time to put “a ring on it” don’t ya think?’

Since getting together last year, Jennifer and Alex’s relationship has gone from strength to strength and both have since credited the ‘timing’ of their romance, insisting they are glad they met later on in life.

Speaking on US talk show Today at the beginning of August, Alex said of he and Jennifer being an item: ‘To be honest if this happened when we were in our twenties… it would have never happened.

‘It was just too much craziness, I wasn’t mature enough,’ he explained. ‘You know boys…. we gotta get our dumbness out of the way.’

‘We’re both in our 40s, we’re both from New York, we both come from Latino backgrounds, we both have two kids,’ he added. ‘I think we’ve both been through a lot and can really appreciate each other… both the good and the challenges.’

The duo had sparked engagement rumours when Jennifer was pictured wearing a ring given to her by her beau. She shared a snap of herself and Rodriguez enjoying a beach day together, where she was seen leaning on her shirtless boyfriend while clad in a fuchsia pink and sporting a ring on her engagement finger.

She chose to ignore the rumour-inducing jewellery and simply captioned her shot: ‘It’s the lil quiet moments that matter the most…’

Her snap came after Jennifer confirmed her new single El Anillo is about love and getting to a point in a relationship where you’re waiting for a proposal and that next step.

Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Jennifer explained: ‘The song is definitely about that, it is, but I felt like it was kind of something that all women get to a point where they say, ‘OK, what’s up?’ Like, we’re good, everything’s great, what’s going on? Am I staying or am I going?’

During his recent TV appearance, however, A Rod insisting the ring he had bestowed upon his partner was not an engagement ring – quashing rumours he and Jennifer are set to wed.

‘Of course it has a significance, [but] no, we’re not engaged. We’re not engaged,’ he clarified.

Both Jennifer and Alex have been married before. Lopez was previously married to singer Marc Anthony, whom she shares her 10-year-old twins Emme and Max with.

They tied the knot back in 2004 and were together for 10 years, until they confirmed their split in 2014. She had been married twice before her marriage to Marc and wed choreographer Cris Judd in 2001, after her failed marriage to producer Ojani Noa back in 1997.

Rodriguez, meanwhile, was previously married to ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis. Their six-year-marriage came to an end in 2008. The duo have two children together; daughters Natasha, 13, and Ella, 10.
