10+ Random Facts Fans Didn't Know About Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez. Jlo. Jenny from the Block — whatever you call her, this woman angel requires no introduction.

She's the kween of many things: acting, singing, dancing, and just being an overall amazing human.

Interested in knowing her a little deeper? Here are 10+ random facts most fans don't know about our girl Jlo.

1. She dedicated her first studio album to her Bronx roots:

Jenny from the Block is proud of where she came from.

She titled the album, “On the 6" since it's the number of the train she took back and forth to get to her dance auditions.

2. She's been married three times:

Alex Rodriguez, former pro baseball player with the New York Yankees, is set to be her forth.

She was first married to Cuban actor, Ojani Noa, from 1997 to 1998, followed by her backup dancer, Cris Judd, from 2001 to 2003.

Her most recent husband was singer Marc Anthony, who she was with for 10 years.

3. She once ran a triathlon:

She completed the Nautica Malibu Triathlon in 2008 in two hours, 23 minutes, and 28 seconds.

"On the morning of the race, as I was standing there surrounded by a thousand paparazzi, about to jump into the ocean, I realized that this probably wasn't the best idea I ever had," she wrote in her memoir, True Love.

4. She once snuck a man into her house:

Before A-Rod came along, even Jlo had to go to great lengths to get some lovin'.

This meant sneaking a man into her house while her kids were asleep! You go, girl! Do what you have to do!

5. Reality TV is her guilty pleasure:

Whenever she's not on reality TV herself (American Idol and World of Dance), she's binging it!

In an interview with Vanity Fair, she revealed that Mob Wives is one of her favorite shows.

6. She was once engaged to Ben Affleck:

It's just one of those relationships that Hollywood tends to forget. But it did happen.

The pair were engaged for a year and even starred in the very poorly-reviewed film, Gigli, together.

It's been 20 years since the media circus that was their relationship.

These days, the former pair are on relatively good terms.

“I respect her,” Affleck told The Hollywood Reporter in 2012. “I like her. She’s put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I’m really pleased to see her successful.”

7. She once fired her agent for telling her she needed to lose weight:

Sadly, a lot of celebs deal with being told to change their looks.

When this happened, she handled the situation perfectly: by firing that agent right on the spot. Good for her!

"I was like: 'No, this is who I am and this is the type of woman that I grew up with and it's beautiful.'"

That agent must be eating their words now.

She's considered one of the most beautiful women in the world!

8. She wants to move away from America one day:

She revealed the shocking news in Vanity Fair's 2020 Hollywood issue.

"Find another life where it’s a little bit more simple and organic and where I get to ride a bike, and buy bread, and put it in my basket," she said.

"And then go home and put jelly on it, and just eat and paint, or sit in a rocking chair where there was a beautiful view of an olive tree or an oak tree and I could just smell."

"I have fantasies like that," she continued.

Her top picks? Italy or Bali.

9. She met her fiancé, A-Rod, while she was *with* her ex-husband:

There's even photo-proof of this!

The picture was captured in 2005 when Jennifer and Marc Anthony were at a New York Yankees game.

Isn't it funny how life works? Some things are just meant to be.

10. Speaking of Marc Anthony, she's still super close with him, and quite frankly, it's just beautiful:

This makes sense, considering the pair share two kids together: twins, Emme and Max.

"We are like best friends," Lopez said on Today about her relationship with Anthony.

11. Her famous Versace dress is what inspired Google to create Google image search:

She is literally part of Google history! How cool is that?

Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google, shared how everything went down in an essay.

"Our co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin — like all other successful inventors — kept iterating. They started with images."

He continued:

"After all, people wanted more than just text. This first became apparent after the 2000 Grammy Awards, where Jennifer Lopez wore a green dress that, well, caught the world’s attention."

12. She used to be a backup dancer:

She may be the center of attention now, but once upon a time, she was a dancer for Janet Jackson and New Kids on the Block.

She also danced on the show, In Living Color.

13. She recently got her son, Max, a goldendoodle puppy:

What a pawsome (see what I did there) mom! Jennifer and A-Rod surprised Max with the pup back in June.

While they were toying with different names, they eventually landed on Tyson.

Personally, I was rooting for Yankee Doodle!

If you want more of the adorable puppy, you can follow Tyson on Instagram!

He already has over 21 thousand followers, because, well, duh! Just look at that face! squeals

14. She has her own nonprofit organization with her sister, Lynda Lopez:

The organization, which was founded in 2009, is called the Lopez Family Foundation.

The Lopez sisters created it as a way to help women and children by creating health opportunities for them.
