She and Ben officially wed this year, marrying (again) in a Georgia ceremony after eloping in Las Vegas.
“One of the most perfect [days] of our lives,” Jennifer said of their wedding day. “We couldn’t have been happier. I wish all of you the same kind of happiness…the hard-earned kind that’s all the sweeter for the journey that came before it.”
As she and Ben continue to live in wedded bliss, Alex was asked how he feels about Jennifer rekindling things with Ben so soon after their split and ultimately marrying him.
“Honestly, does it bother you that within days after you broke up that she was back to seeing Ben Affleck, and that she ended up getting married to him, not you?” Chris Wallace asked him during a recent appearance on Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?
Laughing, Alex replied: “First of all, I would say I’m glad I’m not going to ever be a presidential candidate because you would hammer me.”
He continued: “With Jennifer, look, it was a good experience. And I wish her and the children, who are smart, and beautiful and wonderful — I wish them the very best.”
Having hoped for something juicier, Chris then asked him “That’s it?” to which Alex responded, “That’s it.”
Chris then asked Alex whether he thinks he would make “good husband material” himself. Alex answered that, yes, he would — admitting that he’s learned a lot from his past “mistakes.”
“I think when you look at my life, Chris, I mentioned when I was 15 years old and I think Sports Illustrated called me a top player in the country,” he explained. “And at that time, I was Alex Rodriguez. And then somewhere along the way, at 24, I get a $250 million contract, and probably, I lost my way a little bit and I became A-Rod…”
“So in my 20s, early 30s, [I was] probably not the best,” he continued. “I think I’m gonna make a wonderful partner or husband and father post-suspension because of the lessons learned of my biggest mistakes.”
It has been almost a couple of years now since he and J.Lo were engaged — maybe he has learned and grown since then.
