COVID-19 knows no bias. While everyone’s getting acquainted with the lockdown life, Jennifer Lopez and her beau A-Rod were spotted stepping out of a gym that’s shut to all its other members. A reliable source claims that the celeb couple was allowed owing to a special dispensation.

By the looks of it, J.Lo looked spiffy in a red crop top and snug-fitted leggings and was seen emerging from the backdoor of the fitness studio. She was accompanied by A-rod, and sources believe the studio was frequented by the couple even pre-lockdown. Clearly not in the mood to be spotted or worse, photographer; the couple sped away in a gleaming black chauffeur-driven car.

The pictures irked millions of netizens from the world over, as they felt the studio was being unfair in letting the stars in when it had categorically mentioned that the place was going to remain shut until the lockdown was lifted.

On the other note, it has been reported that the two are making the best use of this social isolation, and are catching up with their children from previous relationships. A-Rod co-parents both his daughters Natasha, 15, and Ella, 11 from his ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis while J-Lo shares parenting responsibilities with ex-husband Marc Anthony for twins Max and Emme, aged 12.

J.Lo is currently engaged to Alex Rodrigues and she’s made her wants clear— a “big fat church wedding” with him. Despite fleeting rumors about there being trouble in the couple’s owing to incessant delays—their wedding plans have been put in the back burner for the longest, often causing fans to wonder if they’d ever walk down the aisle. But, they’re strong as ever and A-Rod is really supportive of J.Lo and wants to wait it out until the 50-year-old diva is ready.

A-Rod’s wedding ring happens to be the fifth for Lopez, who was previously married thrice (though she feels her first two marriage don’t count as they were brief.) and to ex-fiance Ben Affleck. While everyone’s currently grappling under the global pandemic scare, J.Lo and A-Rod seem pretty active on Instagram. The couple’s recent participation of the LightSwitch Challenge amassed millions of likes.
