The Jenny From The Block hitmaker, who first went public with her sportsman beau, 43, in March 2017, has shared her delight over their similar qualities and upbringings.

“Both Alex and I are Latino. We are both self-made. He was always the hardest working baseball player that was — me, the same. We have that in common. We have the same work ethic. We also appreciate and know that coming from nothing, we always want to try to help and give back and teach our kids that,” she said.

Jennifer, who shares her two children with ex-husband Marc Anthony, revealed her role as a mother encouraged her to become a better person.

The blonde shared, “Once I had my kids, I realised I had to be better, I had to do better. So I started doing a lot of work on myself. I started searching spiritually, religion, all of it. Self-help, life coach, meditation, yoga, more meditation.”

Jennifer insisted she has raised her children to have the message of self-love at the core of their values, after confessing to growing up with the fairy tale that ‘a prince is going to save you.’
