Jennifer Lopez admits she was initially skeptical about marrying Alex Rodriguez

Jennifer Lopez is getting candid on her relationship with fiancé Alex Rodriguez.

The "Medicine" singer was a guest on the Morning Mash Up on SiriusXM Hits 1 this week, where she revealed she was initially skeptical about the idea of marrying the former MLB star.

"I was very wary after everything I've been through," said Lopez, who was previously married to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd and Marc Anthony. "I was just sussing it out until then. I was like, 'I don't know, maybe yes, maybe no, I really love [Alex], I like him.' Everything seemed almost too perfect too soon, so I was like, 'Wait, what's happening?'"

"When it happened, I think it was the right time -- we knew," she added. "It's great to have a best friend and a partner you can really build with, and I just feel like, with Alex and I, that's what it's like. We're very similar ... it's one of those things, you meet a like-minded person who is trying to be the best person they can be and always trying to grow, and then they help you grow and you help them grow. I'm better here, he's better there and we're better together."

Rodriguez proposed to Lopez in March after two years of dating. "She said yes," he shared via Instagram at the time, alongside a photo of J.Lo's massive sparkler.

A source told ET that the couple's family and friends were not surprised by the engagement, as Lopez and Rodriguez have "always been on the same page" about wanting a longterm relationship. 

"They have done a really good job of blending their families and making it known that one day they'd be married," the source said. "J.Lo and A-Rod are perfect for one another. They push each other to be better in all aspects of their life, and are incredible partners together."

"The couple has gotten more and more serious, buying property together and going into business together," the source added. "They're looking forward to being husband and wife."

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
The best times are with these lil ones... 🙏🏼🌟 #ilovechristmastime #familia
About last night... Perfect way to start the year... Love that they still wanna fall asleep in Mama’s arms ♥️♥️🙏🏼
When we were kids, birthdays were exciting because it was all about the gifts we would be getting. A new bat, dance shoes, maybe a new CD (yes I’m old!). I see firsthand how that’s changed for Jennifer, and how she’s found joy in sharing with others. For someone who has been about giving everything she has 365 days a year—to our children, our families, the world—I hope today, we can give you all the happiness you deserve. I love you mucho Macha 13. ❤️

Today has an entirely different meaning to me than I did when I first became a father to Tashi and then my Ella Bella. It’s an incredible responsibility, and one I have always treasured. But as I grow older and proudly watch them doing the same, not only are my kids my pride and joy and number one priority - now they also motivate me. Every day, Tashi and Ella make me a better dad and a better person. Being a father is the greatest job in the world, more than any career I could have dreamed of as a kid. To all the fathers out there, never stop trying to be the best. I don’t. #HappyFathersDay
