Jennifer Lopez and her fiance Alex Rodriguez have reportedly postponed their wedding.
The celebrity couple were set to marry this summer in Italy, but according to E! News, citing a source, the wedding has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns.
“They have been struggling for weeks over this decision, but with no return to normalcy in the near future, the couple felt postponing the wedding was the safest and smartest choice,” the source said.
“Guests have recently been notified that the wedding will not be happening in late summer as anticipated.”
The insider said that the actress, 50, and the athlete Rodriguez, 44, are still hoping to have the wedding of their dreams,” and while they’re considering new dates, the couple doesn’t see the wedding happening any time “soon.”
After two years of dating, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez got engaged in March 2019.
Lopez and Rodriguez are reportedly still looking for a possible new date for the wedding, but don’t see the ceremony logistically happening anytime soon. Per the outlet, the couple still want to host the “wedding of their dreams” in Italy, but only when the time is right. Further, Lopez has previously stated that she’s in no rush to marry the former Yankees star.
“It’s so funny because when we first got engaged I was like, ‘Oooh, we’re gonna get married in a couple months?!’ Your old thinking comes right back, all that hopeless romantic [stuff] that made me get married three times,” recalled the Hustlers star during an interview with Oprah Winfrey. “[Alex was] like, ‘Whatever you want to do, we can talk about it.’ I said, ‘But if we’re going to be together for the rest of our lives, what is the rush?'”
With much of the world on lockdown due to the global health crisis, Lopez, Rodriguez, and their children have been relishing family time at home in Miami. The singer has also been working from home, sharing ways to stay positive, and reminding us all of a world before COVID-19.
