Singer and actor Jennifer Lopez has shared pictures of baseball star Alex Rodriguez’s wedding proposal. The pictures, shared on Instagram on Tuesday, show Alex going down on his knees with an enormous diamond ring. Jennifer captioned the picture simply with the date of the proposal. “3.9.19,” she wrote.
The duo announced the happy news of their engagement on Saturday, sharing matching photos of Lopez wearing her stunning diamond engagement ring as Rodriguez can be seen holding her hand in the picture. “She said yes,” Rodriguez wrote, while Lopez captioned captioned it with eight black heart emojis, simple and sweet.
Lopez and her ex-husband Marc Anthony share 11-year-old twins Maximilian “Max” David and Emme Maribel, and Rodriguez and his ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis share daughters Ella (10) and Natasha (14). Lopez was previously married to waiter Ojani Noa, dancer Cris Judd, and Marc Anthony, while Rodriguez settled his divorce with Scurtis in 2008.
The much in love couple were first linked in March 2017 and have been going strong ever since. In 2018, while accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, Lopez had called the former MLB star her “Twin Sole.”
The 49-year-old singer is on cloud nine following the romantic surprise, reported People. “Jennifer is ecstatic and so are their families and friends. Very few people knew Alex planned on proposing. It was very much a surprise for Jennifer. It was just how Alex wanted it,” a source told People.
Talking about how Rodriguez’s decision of popping the big question during the couple’s romantic getaway was “very fitting,” the source explained, adding that the destination “has always been very special to them.” “Very early on in their relationship, they snuck away to the Bahamas to get to know each other in privacy,” the source revealed.
