Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are officially engaged.
Here is everything you need to know!
“She said yes” read the caption of Alex Rodriguez Instagram-post. One where he is seen bent down on his knees with an emerald-cut sparkly in hand. Jennifer Lopez, on the other hand looks both shocked and ecstatic in the pictures shared by the couple. What is even better? Think of a private Bahamas beach sunset where the couple decided to spend the rest of their days together. The pictures shared on social media platforms, quickly turned into every woman’s dream proposal. We really could not stop ourselves from going gaga over the couple.
Their relationship timeline dates back to the May of 2005, when Jen and Alex met for the first time at the New York Mets, where Rodriguez, the baseball player was playing along with his team, the New York Yankees. Fast forward to early 2017, where J-Lo spots Alex outside a restaurant in Beverly Hills. According to an interview in Vanity Fair, she says “I almost yelled out 'Alex', but I am the shyest person when it comes to things like that. I could literally have just walked away but I walk over and tap him on the shoulder and say 'Hey'... It was just one of those things where you feel compelled to do, something you wouldn’t normally do." Alex responded by telling her she looked beautiful followed by a call later that evening when he asked her out on a date. Their first date happens at Hotel Bel Air. And after a lot of talking and nervousness, Alex heads off to the bathroom and sends her a text saying: 'You look sexy AF'. Yes. Nothing short of your favourite rom-com.
After two years of dating which was confirmed on March 2017, they decided to tie the knot. The cherry on top is their four children who really get along well. In the various holidays and vacations that they took together, the kids have just blended in as a single family. If you want to absolutely fall in love with this pair, just see the beautiful pictures that follow.
