After two years of dating, singer Jennifer Lopez and former baseball player Alex Rodriguez are officially engaged. The couple celebrated their second anniversary in February and Lopez couldn’t help but gush over their relationship with an Instagram post that read, “Two years of laughter. Two years of fun. Two years of adventures. Of excitement of growing and learning. Of true friendship. And so much love!! You make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place… in the midst of our ever-changing, ever-moving life… you make me feel like a teenager starting out all over again… Every time I think I have you pegged, you surprise me in the most wonderful ways reminding me how blessed I am to have found you now in this moment at this time… our time… Te Amo Macho.”
Since the beginning of their relationship, the two haven’t been shy about voicing how much they love each other on their social media pages and for the past few days, we’ve been treated to images of them spending quality time together in the Bahamas. For those of us paying attention, it was a sweet surprise yesterday when they posted a photo of J.Lo’s hand wearing a gorgeous emerald cut diamond engagement ring — reportedly worth a whopping $1 million.
We’re pretty sure that J.Lo was completely surprised by the proposal since she denied wedding rumors in November 2018 on The Ellen Show. Ellen DeGeneres even joked that Rodriguez texted her prior the show that the couple was already planning to get hitched, to which Lopez replied, “He did not say that. He did not say that! Let me see the text!” Fittingly, J.Lo tagged The Ellen Show on her engagement post. DeGeneres commented, “Yes. I’ll be your maid of honor.”
Celebrities, such as Naomi Campbell and Kourtney Kardashian, also congratulated the couple. This will be Lopez’s fourth marriage and Rodriguez’s second. Any guesses as to what she’ll wear on her wedding day?
