JLo plus A-Rod make J-Rod.

He's a baseball player turned investor and real estate tycoon. She's an actress turned singer and superstar. They both have complicated pasts, failed marriages and a couple of kids each. They might not be the most likely couple, but they are certainly one of the most beautiful.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez (also known as A-Rod) have been dating for a little over a year, and there are rumors of wedding bells to come. These two megastars command a lot of attention and that's how we've learned these 15 things about Jennifer Lopez and A-Rod's relationship — including those pesky A-Rod cheating rumors.

1. The exact moment they met was caught on camera.

Or was it? JLo and A-Rod are said to have met at a baseball game she attended with her then-husband Marc-Anthony. He was married to Cynthia Skurtis when they first met so neither were available when they were first introduced at Shea Stadium. If that was the moment, how special is that? What a keepsake!

2. He wasn't sure if their first date was a date. 

Alex was unclear if the dinner they attended was a scheduling necessity because of JLo's understandably busy calendar or if they were really on a date. Jennifer thought they were on a date, so at least one of them knew what was up, thank goodness.

He was apparently nervous, as you can imagine, because girlfriend is a 10, for sure. She described him as chatty. Awww. 

3. Their first date almost didn't happen. 

JLo was so shy she almost didn't approach him! She found her nerve though, and the rest is history! Turns out JLo feels awkward just like the rest of us. Isn't that sweet? Who would have thought? 

4. Their first date was cut short and he was sexting her. 

He texted her "You are sexy AF" and then the fire alarm went off and they had to evacuate. If only every first date was that hot! When you're A-Rod, your sexts are literally smoking, apparently.  

5. She played it safe with her heart at first.

With a track record like A-Rod's, JLo was said to have been careful at first, not wanting to get hurt. It's safe to say she got past that and is happier than ever. It's just smart thinking to take your time in the beginning of a new relationship. That JLo is a smart cookie, especially dating a man with such a public past. 

6. They used to have their own text message language. 

When they first started dating, they had their own codes in text. They used #bloodinbloodout which was a nod to a movie about the unbreakable ties of family.  

7. They announced they were dating on Instagram.

It was actually pretty chill and sweet. She's showed that she's still Jenny from the Block, lounging on the sofa with her new squeeze, like people do. They were watching baseball, which she loves (and he loves that she loves).

She deleted the first photo of them together, but this was the one that she decided to keep up. That first one was sizzling! 

8. She's got his number — literally.

She wears his #13 Yankees jersey when she performs in Vegas. How sweet is that? It's such a thoughtful gesture and an emotional tribute. That's like the celebrity equivalent of wearing your boyfriend's sweater. 

9. She serenaded him on their anniversary. 

She sang "Us," which was a collaboration with Skrillex and Poobear, to him on their anniversary. It was about their relationship and she revealed it was their anniversary at that performance on February 3 (if you're thinking of sending them something nice to celebrate next year).

It's like a mix tape but with other celebrities involved. She looked super-gorgeous that night, too.

10. They are mushy on Instagram.

JLo said, "You make my heart and soul smile" in a sweet, romantic post. She shows off her love for him to the world, and he isn't shy either. Relationship goals, right? 

11. There have been cheating rumors.

A-Rod was accused of cheating on JLo in the tabloids but he says that's just not true. She doesn't seem to have believed it either, or if she did, she never let it show. They are so gushy in love with each other it's unbelievable and inspiring. 

12. She gets seriously peeved if he doesn't answer when she calls. 

On Ellen, A-Rod revealed that JLo gets mad if he doesn't answer, and she boasted about how she always takes his calls. Who doesn't get pissed about getting sent to voicemail? Answer your phone, fellas. We mean business! 

13. They wear matching clothes sometimes. 

They've clearly got great taste! JLo and A-Rod went out wearing the same white shirt — and they looked great! They are beautiful people, after all, but they definitely like to amp up the "together" vibe by wearing the same or very similar clothing choices.  

14. They aren't afraid of a little PDA. 

Spotted on the Kiss Cam on more than one occasion, this couple isn't afraid of a public smooch. They love to pucker up at a game on the big screen like the rest of us and they sure do love their sports. 

15. Even their workouts are ridiculously adorable.

JLo and A-Rod are the friends on social media who always remind you that they are working out. They take fitness very seriously. Well, okay... maybe not so seriously in this one. But you get the point. Cute is their cardio. 

JLo and A-Rod, or J-Rod as they've been dubbed, are committed to each other for the long haul, having purchased a 15 million dollar condo together. This PDA loving, matchy-matchy power couple are definitely #RelationshipGoals, but some of the stuff they do is still kind of cringe-y.

That said, you can't help but root for these two Latin lovebirds. They're just too sweet!
