The singer and A-Rod have been praised for creating a close-knit blended family, and have spoken out about their children's close relationship with each other. JLo told People about how their families clicked right away, saying: "Kids are so beautiful and open to love and new friends. I was so loving to his kids and he was so loving and accepting of mine, and they embraced each other right away. [It was] 'I get a new bonus brother and sisters to hang out with all the time and it's nice." Alex added: "Our kids have become best friends and that keeps us both grounded and appreciative. We couldn't have asked for anything better than the four of them getting along as they do."
