Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are engaged! Retired baseball star, Alex Rodriguez, popped the question on Saturday night, and as we all know it through their gram, “she said yes”.
The two celebrities, who often document their relationship milestone on social media, took to their respective Instagram handles to share the amazing news along with a picture of the stunning rock on JLo's delicate and perfectly manicured fingers.
The couple is currently vacationing in the Bahamas, where their days are filled with white sand beaches, palm trees and warm weather.
The pair officially celebrated their two-year anniversary on February 4, and Alex shared a heartfelt message to his now-fiancée.
“Only 730 days, which have flown by, but it feels like we have been together forever. We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words,” A-Rod wrote at the time.
He perhaps hinted at his engagement on Saturday in one of his Instagram Story moments. He shared an excerpt from a poem called "Soulmate" that was most definitely in honour of his now-fiancée.
"A soulmate isn't someone who completes you. No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to complete yourself," the poem says. "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."
Well, turns out, Alex splurged on the ring and didn’t think twice about going for it. According to an E!News report, Andrew Brown, President of WP Diamonds, estimated the singer's ring to be worth seven figures. "I would imagine Jennifer Lopez's engagement ring to have a retail value approaching a million dollars," he told E! News in a statement. "It looks to be an emerald cut around 10 carats, likely an extremely good stone—VS in color and clarity."
Jewellery and style expert Lauren McCawley offered up a similar number. She said, "An approximate 15-carat diamond sparkles in a platinum solitaire setting and could easily retail for USD 1 Million." Well, JLo is one lucky girl for sure!
