After Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez declared they were making their relationship work amid rumors the two had called it quits, OK! has exclusively learned the power couple is wasting no time and “moving full speed ahead” with their wedding plans.
“The 24-hour breakup has made both of them realize how much they love each other,” an insider dishes to OK!, adding that a wedding “could happen in the next few weeks.”
The source continues, “After the big wedding planned in Italy was cancelled because of the pandemic, the couple were waiting until the world returned to normal before picking another date. Now they have decided to have a small wedding with just immediate family members and then have a huge party to celebrate sometime next year.”
This will not be the first time Lopez has thrown a surprise wedding. Shortly after her split from Hollywood royalty Ben Affleck, the Latin superstar invited guests over to her house for a BBQ where she married Marc Anthony.
“Rather than dealing with their problems now, Jen and Alex have decided to get married first and deal with them after,” adds a pal. “She already has the dress, which is the most important thing for her.”
Rodriguez recently flew down to the Dominican Republic — where Lopez is working on a film — to hit the refresh button on their relationship. New pictures show the two sharing an intimate moment, with the baseball pro leaning in for a kiss from the global superstar.
Still, things have been anything but easy for Lopez in recent days. Not only is the “Let’s Get Loud” singer working on her relationship, she was hit with some bad news. According to a recent report, her dance competition show, World of Dance, has been canceled due to a significant drop in viewers.
NBC is said to be done with the show after the 12-episode fourth season wrapped in August. While the first three seasons were a ratings success, viewers lost interest in the fourth with a reported 20-percent drop in viewers for the season four premiere in May compared to the previous season with 5 million people tuning in.
The show was not listed on NBC’s upcoming summer schedule dates, which featured season three of Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman’s Making It, Simon Cowell’s ratings juggernaut America’s Got Talent and American Ninja Warrior.
