The singer, 51, is currently in the Dominican Republic filming her new movie with the former baseball star, 45, flying out to spend time with her.
A source has told PEOPLE that the pair, who have been dating for four years, are fighting to save their relationship as A-Rod prepares to jet off to Miami for baseball season.
‘He flew back to spend a few more days with Jennifer. He is making a big effort, and he wants Jennifer to be happy,’ they said.
The insider added that they are ‘doing everything they can to prioritise their relationship.’
Denying initial reports they had broken up, J-Lo and the sportstar shared a statement that said: ‘All the reports are inaccurate. We are working through some things.’
TMZ has been told the ‘things’ the pair are working on have ‘nothing to do with a third party’.
He and Jennifer first began dating in 2017 and got engaged two years later in 2019, when Alex proposed during a trip to the Bahamas.
The pair had been planning their wedding, with Jennifer revealing that they were forced to move their big day twice due to the coronavirus pandemic impacting on their plans.
Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for the couple for comment.
