It’s clear that Jennifer Lopez loved “Fixer Upper” and was always a big fan of Alex Rodriguez, who gave her the gift of a meeting with the show’s stars. It’s also clear that Alex Rodriguez didn’t realize that Lopez was just a fan of the show and not actually the owner of the show.
Jennifer Lopez knew of Chip and Joanna Gaines way before they ever became friends. Apparently, Lopez was a big fan of their HGTV show, “Fixer Upper,” which gave her then-boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, an idea of the perfect anniversary gift: a meeting with Chip and Joanna themselves. Lopez revealed Rodriguez’s super creative gift on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show back in 2019. “So I’m obsessed with ‘Fixer Upper.’ Do you guys know Joanna Gaines and Chip Gaines?” Lopez asked the audience. “My sister got me [Joanna’s] new book and I’m like obsessed with it … we actually got a little fixer-upper next to the water … and I was like ‘Wouldn’t it be amazing to have [Joanna] do it for us?'”
Lopez then mentioned that Joanna and Chip don’t restore homes outside of Waco, Texas, before joking that she didn’t realize Rodriguez actually “listens to me half the time.” Eventually, Rodriguez asked Lopez to sit through a meeting with an architect to talk about renovation plans for their house in Malibu. Lopez reluctantly agreed, even though she’s not a fan of meetings. “He opens up the FaceTime and it’s Joanna Gaines,” continued Lopez with a squeal. “I totally fangirled out!” Lopez also revealed that Joanna agreed to help her with “this and that” for the house.
