The mother-of-one wrote: "I can't believe this book is a now thing out in the world... Sorry for one more shameless plug, but I am so excited that 'AOC: The Fearless Rise and Powerful Resonance of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez' is being released today....

"I was thrilled to be able to bring together all the powerful voices of these women (and a couple of amazing men!) to speak about the themes that are important to so many communities. Thank you to each and every one of you. Thank you Elisabeth, Sarah, Martin, and everyone at #StMartinsPress! And just, thank you everyone for the amazing support."

Jennifer is incredibly close with her younger sister 

Jennifer previously opened up about her upbringing during a joint appearance with Lynda on BUILD in 2017. When asked whether they used to fight as children, Lynda replied: "Not me and her, but you know there's three of us right? When we were kids those two would beat up on me."

Alex Rodriguez's fiancée responded: "We did not beat up on you. We were all very close in age – don't imagine us on a child infant, it wasn't like that, she's a year and a half younger than me okay!"
