“This Is Me… Now” will come with a film of the same name, which is described as “a narrative-driven, intimate, reflective, sexy, funny, fantastical, and highly entertaining musical and visual reimagining” of Lopez’s personal life. You can check out a short trailer for the Dave Meyers-directed movie, which Lopez co-wrote alongside Matt Walton and her husband, actor Ben Affleck.

The NFL star wrote that he’s looking forward to parenthood. “How thankful I am to do this with you can’t be explained! God makes no mistakes and nothing is coincidental and for that, I thank Him Daily! I love you, and y’all can always count on me…Let’s do this Mama,” Prescott wrote in the comment section of Ramos’ post.
