When Jennifer Lopez confirmed she and Ben Affleck had casually tied the knot in Las Vegas over the weekend, everyone was surprised. Not least Lopez’s recent ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez, who she split with in April 2021 after four years together. 

Of course, A Rod isn’t about to let us know his true feelings about the situation, instead, he’s speaking through an Us Weekly source and making sure to highlight that he’s – quite literally – busy “living his best life.”

As a ‘source’ put it to Us Weekly, Rodriguez is “ happy for her and happy that she’s with the person she’s meant to be with.”

They then made sure to mention that the former baseball player is “in a new relationship now and is happy as well.” (He’s dating fitness model Kathryne Padgett, who he was first linked to in June 2022 when a source told Us WeeklyUs Weekly again, what a coincidence! – they have “great chemistry.)

Furthermore! Rodriguez is “travelling all over and living his best life.” Yes, really. 

“He’s really focused on family, his career and what he’s got going on. [His] relationship [with Jennifer] ended a while ago — he’s made peace with how things ended. He respects her and truly wishes her nothing but the best.”

Well, there you have it. 

Given A Rod is so happy and busy and in love, I’m sure he won’t mind that Lopez and Affleck are reportedly planning yet another wedding celebration. According to a People source, the newlyweds “plan on having a bigger party so they can celebrate with family and friends.”

They added, “They don’t have a honeymoon planned yet. Jennifer says that every day with Ben is a honeymoon. Ever since they started dating again, Jennifer has truly believed that this is it. She is looking forward to growing old with Ben. She is very happy and content with Ben. She couldn’t ask for anything else. She thinks it’s all perfect.” Sounds like everyone’s happy.
