Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez know how to turn heads!

The gorgeous couple attended the 2018 Time 100 Gala at Lincoln Center in New York City on Tuesday, where the 48-year-old entertainer was named one of the most influential people by Time magazine.

ET's Nischelle Turner caught up with J-Rod on the red carpet, where the former Yankees baseball player couldn't help but gush about his lady.

"I'm so flattered to be sitting here kind of in the bullpen, in the bleachers, talking about the Bronx, just kinda watching her. She's getting everything she deserves, and it's just really, really nice to see," Rodriguez expressed. "It is so great that I get to see how gorgeous she is on the inside and the outside on a night like tonight. [It's] such a special night in New York City. I'm just happy to see her get her due. It's gonna be an awesome night."

On this special night, Lopez looked radiant in a nude and gold embroidered Zuhair Murad gown that featured a plunging neckline and sandy shimmering beaded motifs. The "Amor Amor Amor" singer accessorized her sparkling look with Jimmy Choo shoes and Lorraine Schwartz pear shape diamond drop earrings, white and yellow diamond bracelets and a handful of diamond rings.

The brunette beauty had her golden locks in a long ponytail and her makeup consisted of her signature J.Lo glow and a nude lip.

The Shades of Blue star was also accompanied by her mother, Guadalupe Rodríguez, and her sister, Lynda Lopez.

"It really is an honor," J.Lo told ET about being part of the Time 100. "And I love that it's in New York. Whenever I come to New York, I always feel like it takes me back to the beginning, to the Bronx and everything. And then to be here and be honored tonight, I'm humbled. I really am. It's an incredible acknowledgment."
