Jennifer and Hoda have a sweet friendship and the Hustlers star often appears on the Today show to talk to the TV host. Most recently, J-Lo opened up about her postponed wedding during a virtual interview during lockdown.

When asked about her wedding, the singer responded: "Nobody knows! Nobody knows, there is no planning right now, you just have to wait and see how this all plays out. "It’s disappointing on one level after the Super Bowl and World of Dance filming I planned to take time off, which is what we are doing right now, but at the same time we had a lot of plans for this summer and this year but everything is kind of on hold right now.
