Jennifer Lopez can't bear being apart from Alex Rodriguez.

The 49-year-old singer-and-actress has only been separated from her boyfriend - who is in Houston, Texas, for his work as a sports commentator - for a day but she already misses him.

She shared a photo of the former baseball star on her Instagram account and, along with kissing and heart emojis, wrote: ''One day apart and already missing this one... @arod (sic)''

Meanwhile, 43-year-old Alex - who has Natasha, 13, and Ella, 10, with his former wife Cynthia Scurtis - recently admitted he thinks his relationship with the 'World of Dance' judge works so well because they've shared similar experiences throughout their lives.

He said: ''We're in our forties. We're both from New York. We both come from Latino backgrounds. We both have two kids. I think we've both been through a lot and can really appreciate each other - both the good and the challenges.''

And Alex even admitted he doesn't believe their relationship would have worked if they had met in their 20s.

He said: ''To be honest, if this happened when we were in our twenties, it would have never happened. It was just too much craziness. I wasn't mature enough. You know, boys, we got to get our dumbness out of the way.''               —Contactmusic
