He spoke it into existence. An old video from 1998 has surfaced that proves Alex Rodriguez always knew Jennifer Lopez was the one for him. As if we needed any more proof that these two are each other's better half, a video from 1998 shows the former baseball player saying that J.Lo was his "dream date."

More from MamásLatinas: Everything Jennifer Lopez & Alex Rodriguez have taught us about relationships

The video is proof that Alex always had his eyes on Jen, even though they were both in and out of relationships at the start of their careers. Now that they're about to get married, this clip has resurfaced 20 years later, proving that what is meant to be yours will always find you--even if it takes a little time.

An old clip from 1998 resurfaced of a younger Alex describing his perfect date.

Back when Alex was a young 23-year-old baseball player, a reporter behind the camera asked him during an interview what his "dream date"
would be. A-Rod, with no hesitation, said, "Jennifer Lopez!" Adding with a sly smile: "Hopefully you can find me a date with her."


Alex shared the old clip and agreed that he always knew she was the one.

The MLB Network shared the post on Monday, June 4, and Alex reposted the vintage video on his Instagram page. He captioned it: "Just had a feeling 😂 @kevinmillar15 @crose127 @jlo #repost @mlbnetwork @arod always knew, @jlo #IntentionalTalk."


Jennifer Lopez responded and seemed just as excited as the rest of us.

The singer took to the comments to share just how much she also loved the clip. "I love this too much," she wrote with three heart emojis. Her beau responded saying, "When you know, you know." Fans flooded the comments saying that Alex had spoken his future into existence and manifested their relationship by claiming that J.Lo was his lady, even back then. "He put it into the universe!!" one fan wrote. Ask and you shall receive, right?

Jen and Alex often moved in the same circles.

J.Lo and A-Rod have a lot of similarities. They were both born and raised in New York and started their careers around the same time, so they've been around each other before. When they first started dating, an old photo of them together at a Yankees game began to resurface. In the snap, Alex posed with a then-married J.Lo and her now ex-husband, Marc Anthony. The photo became a meme with people joking about how your replacement is often closer than you think. 


The couple crossed paths even before that, when Alex was just a fan.

In 2018, the former athlete shared an autographed photo of Jen that he had gotten signed from her in the '90s. So insane! "#TBT to almost 20 years ago when a big time global pop superstar signed a pic for a young ball player #lifecanbeafunnythingsometimes #pictureperfect #keepsake #jlo," he captioned the pic in October 2018.

And now, 20 years later and they are about to walk down the aisle.

The pair began dating in 2017 after running into each other at lunch in Los Angeles, California, and J.Lo tapped him on the shoulder to say, "Hello." They have been inseparable ever since. The soon-to-be husband and wife constantly talk about how this was the perfect timing for them to date and how they are each other's "twin flame" and "soul mate." Alex is now fully living the dream after he proposed to the woman of his dreams in March and are already planning their wedding. Sometimes it really is just meant to be!
