In the end, he says he is grateful: “I’m so grateful for where God and the light has really put me, and I’m really looking forward. Mostly to see how my girls keep developing.”

Rodriguez and Lopez called off their engagement back in March 2021. 

“We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” they said in a statement at the time. “We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and each other’s children.”

In the time since, Lopez has begun dating Ben Affleck.
