It’s common knowledge that Water Mill’s Jennifer Lopez prefers to keep an air of mystery concerning her relationships. And now, her fans are clinging to any information they can learn about her relationship with former Yankees superstar Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez, just like they did with her and Drake’s relationship.

Thankfully, we have James Corden to pry into her private life for us. On Thursday night’s episode of The Late Late Show, he teased Lopez about the photos of her and Rodriguez holding hands as they left the Prime 112 steakhouse in Miami back in April. She played coy at first, not even willing to speak her suitor’s name, but Corden was able to drag out a confession, calling them a “devilishly handsome couple.”

Lopez responded to Corden saying, “He’s the best… You would love him.” So he continued to press in for more details, next asking which of the two asked the other out on the first date. Lopez revealed that she was the one who “tapped him on the shoulder and said, ‘Hi.’” And thus began the budding romance of one of 2017’s hottest new power couples. Then Corden, now on the edge of his seat, asked Lopez what their fabulous first date looked like, to which Lopez laughingly responded that it was just a “normal” dinner.

Although “J-Rod” are anything but a normal, everyday couple. Normal people make their relationship status official on Facebook, not the red carpet. That didn’t stop them from stealing the spotlight at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday. Lopez posed for photographers in a gorgeous powder blue Valentino gown complete with sheer cape. Rodriguez kept it simple with a black tuxedo, white collared shirt, and black bow tie.

Despite how beautiful and flashy the couple is, Rodriguez reminded the hosts of The View that he loves more than Lopez’s looks, explaining that she’s an “amazing, amazing girl… One of the smartest human beings I’ve ever met and also an incredible mother.” He went on to say that she really is a “very, very simple person. Loves family. Is a great sister. Is a great daughter.”
