Jennifer Lopez And Alex Rodriguez Announce Engagement With Photos Of Her Massive Ring

The iconic singer and the former MLB star reached a major milestone while on a romantic getaway.

Love don’t cost a thing but a gigantic diamond ring. Well, at least for Jennifer Lopez and beau Alex Rodriguez.

The singer and the former New York Yankees third baseman announced their engagement Saturday night with matching Instagram posts. In it, Rodriguez is holding Lopez’s left hand, which has a massive diamond on the ring finger. 

In her caption, Lopez, 49, left a row of heart emojis while Rodriguez, 43, typed, “She said yes.”

The couple was apparently on a tropical vacation when A-Rod, 43, popped the question. Photos from earlier this week show the couple relaxing by the poolside and watching the sunset on a beach.

One day before announcing the engagement, Rodriguez posted an Instagram Story with a quote about soulmates. 

A soulmate isn’t someone who completes you,” it read. “No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to complete yourself. A soulmate is someone who loves you with so much conviction, and so much heart, that it is nearly impossible to doubt just how capable you are of becoming exactly who you have always wanted to be.”

That same day, Lopez shared a photo of her snuggling next to Rodriguez on a boat.

Lopez and Rodriguez, who each have two kids each from prior relationships, made their relationship public in early 2017, and have been inseparable ever since.

Their combined families seem to be getting along too. The couple and their kids celebrated Christmas together in December, decorating the tree as a family.

This will be Lopez’s fourth marriage and Rodriguez’s second.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this story misidentified Rodriguez as a shortstop for the Yankees. Rodriguez switched from playing shortstop to third baseman after joining the Yankees in 2004.
