Most of the time, it seems like celebrities are in a different world from the rest of us. It’s not surprising. Once you reach that social status, it affords a certain degree of luxury. One aspect of Jennifer Lopez’s life is extremely relatable, though. She loves the HGTV show “Fixer Upper.” Actually, “loves” probably doesn’t cut it — J.Lo’s a straight-up superfan.
Thankfully for J.Lo, her boyfriend, some former baseball masher named Alex Rodriguez, knows this. So for their two-year anniversary on Feb. 3, A-Rod surprised her with the kind of gift that would make “Fixer Upper” fans green with envy: a one-on-one video interview with the show’s co-host, Joanna Gaines.
On Wednesday’s edition of “Ellen,” J.Lo excitedly told the crowd about the chat, in which Gaines agreed to help them remodel their house:
J.Lo’s talk with Gaines was so much more than what she expected. After all, A-Rod had played a small trick on her by telling her that he wanted her to join in on a meeting with an architect — she had no idea whatsoever that her “Fixer Upper” favorite would be involved, especially since Gaines rarely takes on project outside the area of Waco, Texas.
That’s doing the anniversary right, A-Rod. Well done.
Macha 13, I can’t believe it’s been two years. Only 730 days, which have flown by, but it feels like we have been together forever. We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words. . From baseball games, to traveling across the world to shows in Vegas. We have done it all together and every moment with you is cherished. Where this road will take us next is unknown but there is no one else I would rather have by my side. The journey is just beginning and I am excited for what’s ahead. . Macha, your hard work is unmatched. Your relentless drive and determination push me to be a better man each and every day. . Like you there is none other. Words will never do justice to what the last two years have meant to me. Thank you for always being you, for your unwavering support and unconditional love.❤ . Te amo mucho, Lola. . – Macho 13 @jlo
