Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez's children spend the weekend together in Dominican Republic
Easter weekend was a family affair in the Dominican Republic for Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez. The Ain't Your Mama singer had the support of her nine-year-old twins Max and Emme along with her former MLB star beau and his own children, Natasha, 12, and Ella, eight, as she performed for the first time in the Caribbean country at the Altos de Cha von Amphitheater on Saturday night. Jennifer took to the stage and danced her way through her popular hits including Let's Get Loud and On The Floor, while A-Rod and their respective kids cheered her on from the crowd. On stage, the 47-year-old was joined by her ex-husband Marc Anthony. The pair, who were together from 2004 to 2014, performed their Spanish single Olvídame y Pega la Vuelta.

Following the concert Jennifer and Alex celebrated with a private after-party in the $10,000 (per night) luxury villa that they are sharing at Casa de Campo Resort & Villas. The couple's ten-day home features six bedrooms, a state-of-the-art kitchen, a private pool and a gazebo. The duo hosted a private Easter brunch at the swanky island house on Sunday. On Easter, Alex posted a latergram photo from Jennifer's concert, showing off her cheering section that consisted of him and his and Jennifer's kids. Alongside the photo, the dad-of-two wrote, "#happyeaster from all of us."

A source revealed to HOLA! USA that the former Yankees player and his daughters get along well with Jennifer's family. "Alex and her kids get along great," the source said. "Alex’s and Jennifer's daughters have become fast friends." In another Instagram photo from the weekend, the 41-year-old athlete posted a picture of himself eating beside the Shades of Blue star's son. He captioned the Easter snapshot, "couchpotatoes #eastersundaywiththekids."
While the couple are certainly enjoying themselves, their trip isn't all fun and no work. On Monday, the duo paid a visit the MIR Foundation. Alex, who is Dominican-American, and Jennifer donated backpacks, notebooks and colored pencils to the students of MIR Elementary School. The school, which opened its doors in 2010, offers a co-ed program where the students start at Pre-K and graduate in the third grade. The organization’s mission is to help children and families in the Dominican Republic escape poverty through educational services.
