In a video that surfaced online this week, the NBA player predicted his future two decades ago! In the interview given by Alex in 1998, when asked by the reporter about who his dream date would be, the baseball player was quick to reply Jennifer Lopez.
Then the 22-year-old star further goes on to say, “Hopefully you can find me a date with her” to the interviewer with a cheeky smile.
At the time of the interview, Alex (fondly known as A-Rod) was playing for the Seattle Mariners.
The clip is from an interview that Alex gave on MLB’S first ever talk-show, Intentional Talk. However, at the time Jennifer Lopez was married to actor Ojani Noa. Hence the timing wasn’t right for Alex.
The sports star posted the video of the interview clip on his Instagram with the caption, “I just had a feeling.”
The video got a gushing response from queen JLo herself, who wrote “OMG…I love this too much” with three heart emojis.
Alex adoringly replied to the comment by saying, “When you know, you know.”
This endearing exchange between the two celebrities left everyone swooning over their love.
