The former MLB star is reportedly 'living his best life' as he is in a new relationship after his former fiancee tied the knot with her now-husband in an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas.

AceShowbiz - Alex Rodriguez is sending nothing but best wishes to Jennifer Lopez after she tied the knot with Ben Affleck. If a new report is to be believed, the former MLB star is "happy" for his former fiancee.

A source spilled to Us Weekly on Monday, July 18, "He's happy for her and happy that she's with the person she's meant to be with." The so-called insider went on to add, "He's in a new relationship now and is happy as well. He's traveling all over and living his best life. He's really focused on family, his career and what he's got going on."

The insider later added that the 46-year-old former Yankee "saw the news" of J.Lo and Ben tying the knot in Las Vegas on Saturday, July 16 and "went about his business." The informant noted, "[His] relationship [with J.Lo] ended a while ago -- he's made peace with how things ended. He respects her and truly wishes her nothing but the best."

Hours after J.Lo announced that she finally eloped with Ben, Alex was spotted on guys night out in Los Angeles, per Radar Online. The former athlete, who has most recently been dating fitness model Kathryn Padgett, seemed to be in a great mood after a lavish dinner at Mr. Chow with his baseball buddy David Ortiz. He was all smiles during the outing.

Alex and J.Lo began dating in February 2017 but split in April 2021, two years after Alex proposed. About a month later, the "Marry Me" actress was linked to Ben. The new Mr. and Mrs. Affleck have been inseparable since.

J.Lo was initially set to wed Affleck in 2003 but famously called off the wedding days before the ceremony. This time, the couple kept their wedding low-key and a total secret as they exchanged nuptials only in front of "her mom, her kids, and her hair and makeup team."

On Sunday, July 17, J.Lo shocked fans when she announced she's now Jennifer Lynn Affleck. "Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world," she wrote on her blog.

"Behind us two men held hands and held each other. In front of us, a young couple who made the three hour drive from Victorville on their daughter's second birthday -- all of us wanting the same thing -- for the world to recognize us as partners and to declare our love to the world through the ancient and nearly universal symbol of marriage," she penned.

"So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben's closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we'll wear for the rest of our lives," the "On the Floor" hitmaker added. "When love is real, the only thing that matters in marriage is one another and the promise we make to love, care, understand, be patient, loving and good to one another. We had that. And so much more," she noted, before concluding, "Best night of our lives."
