Cape Town - They may be loved-up and happily engaged, but it seems Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are in no rush to walk down the aisle, Entertainment Tonight reports.

Speaking on WKTU's Cubby and Carolina in the Morning, JLo gave an update on her relationship and admitted the couple have yet to start wedding planning.

"We just got engaged, and then right afterwards we started working right away and we're working the rest of the year, so I don't know what's going to happen," she revealed.

"We haven't decided if we're going to squeeze it in somewhere or we're going to wait. I really don't know yet. It's easy [to talk about], I'm not lying right now."

Alex and Jennifer, who have been together for over two years, got engaged on 9 March while on a romantic getaway.

However, cheating allegations have followed since their engagement.

British Playboy model Zoe Gregory claimed the former baseball player propositioned her for a threesome a few weeks before proposing to JLo. While his former New York Yankees teammate Jose Canseco accused A-Rod of cheating with Jose’s ex-wife, Jessica Canseco, which Jessica flatly denied.

Ahead of her fourth trip down the aisle, Jennifer has a lot on her plate, including her 50th birthday. On 7 June she'll be kicking off her three-month-long It's My Party Tour to celebrate her landmark birthday. Her children, 11-year-old twins Max and Emme, will be joining her on the road.

"The kids will probably be with me the whole time," she said during the interview. "Alex has Sunday night baseball [for ESPN], so he'll be in and out. He told me, 'I'm definitely at opening night, I'm definitely at closing night, in between we'll figure it out.'"
