Inside Alex Rodriguez’s intimate proposal to Jennifer Lopez – and the ring

Jennifer Lopez is once again engaged, after her baseball player beau Alex Rodriguez proposed in the most romantic way.

The 49-year-old singer and actress announced the happy news on Instagram , alongside a shot of the enormous emerald-cut diamond ring now perched on her left hand.

She captioned the snap of her hand in Alex’s with a simple row of heart emojis.

Alex – known as A-Rod – shared the same photo to fans with the caption: "She said yes."

And he later revealed just how he’d popped the question to his girlfriend of two years, by sweetly setting up their bedroom ready for his big moment.

The couple are currently on holiday in the sun-soaked Bahamas, and Alex decided to use their luxurious hotel bedroom as the perfect location for his question.

He filled their room with long-stemmed red roses, and scattered petals across the floor as a trail for J-Lo to walk down.

Alex filmed as Jennifer – wearing a flowing white gown for their date night that evening – walked into the room looking at her hand.

On their huge king-sized bed, A-Rod had written ‘I heart U’ out of yet more petals.

Alex stopped the video there, but no doubt had plenty more surprises for his girlfriend.

The pair have spent the last few days soaking up the sun in the Bahamas.

They’ve both been documenting their five-star trip on Instagram, with Jennifer sharing a snap of them on the beach with the caption: "#beachbums."

In it, she wears a tiny green bkini and sunglasses, with her long honey-blonde hair in a messy bun on top of her head.

They’ve also treated themselves to a boat trip, with Jennifer snuggled up next to her bae looking out to sea as he tucks her legs under a blanket.

While this isn’t the first wedding for either A-lister, no doubt they’re both hoping it’ll be the last.

J-Lo has previously been married to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd and Marc Anthony, with who she shares 11-year-old twins Max and Emme Anthony.

Alex was married to Cynthia Scurtis from 2002 to 2008 and has daughters Ella and Natasha with her.

Last year everyone was in awe of J-Lo at the MTV VMAs – but no one more than Alex.

The retired Yankees player accompanied J-Lo to the show, where was honoured with the Video Vanguard Award.

And he was supporting the Love Don’t Cost a Thing singer all night – adoringly taking pictures of her on the red carpet and filming her performance.

In her acceptance speech, she thanked Alex by saying: "Alex, you’re my twin soul. We’re like mirror images of each other my life is sweeter and better with you in it."

Jennifer and Alex first met in 2005 at a New York Mets game, but only got together in 2017.

"I was having lunch somewhere and I saw him as he passed by," she later told Ellen Degeneres.

"Afterwards, I went outside and for some reason I felt like tapping him on the shoulder."


Jennifer has previously gushed about the similarities between them, telling Red magazine: "Both Alex and I are Latino. We are both self-made. He was always the hardest working baseball player that was – me, the same.

"We have that in common. We have the same work ethic. We also appreciate and know that coming from nothing, we always want to try to help and give back and teach our kids that."

She added: "I feel like I’m in my second, third, or fourth act. I feel like I’ve lived several lifetimes already and I’ve had to figure myself out along the way, work out why I felt a certain way, or got into relationships that didn’t serve me.

"And I finally realised, ‘It’s me. It’s all me. I got to fix some stuff. I need to understand my own worth and value’."
