Lopez joined “The Late Late Show” Thursday night with James Corden, and although she was reluctant to talk about her relationship with A-Rod, the talk show host managed to get a few things out of her. (RELATED: Jennifer Lopez Finally Opens Up About Her Relationship With A-Rod)

“Spending time with anyone in particular?” Corden jokingly eased into the conversation.

“Please don’t do this to me,” Lopez pleaded, but Corden got her talking after saying the two are a “devilishly handsome couple.”

“Thank you. He’s the best. You would love him,” the 47-year-old singer responded. “Honestly, he’s a great guy. He’s fun. He’s awesome,” Lopez gushed. (PHOTOS: Jennifer Lopez And Alex Rodriguez Make Red Carpet Debut In Style)

As for how the former New York Yankees star and the singer got things started, it was all Lopez. She simply “tapped him on the shoulder and said hi,” and the rest followed, although the “Shades of Blue” actress wouldn’t say anything more about it.

The power couple captured everyone’s attention when they arrived at the Met Gala together on Monday night. Although Rodriguez is a star in his own right, most of the attention was on Lopez — and A-Rod seemed to be just fine with that.
