Fifth time’s a charm!
Congratulations are in order for newly engaged Jennifer Lopez and beau Alex Rodriguez. Rodriguez popped the question during the couple’s getaway in the Bahamas.
The engagement was first announced with an Instagram post and was later confirmed by Benny Medina, Lopez’s long time manager.
The former New York Yankee captioned a photo of J.Lo’s hand with a her new (and massive!) diamond engagement ring with, “She said yes ♥️.” Lopez reposted the pic, and simply added, “♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️.”
Hours before the post confirming the news, A-Rod shared a special message on his Instagram Story.
“A soulmate isn’t someone who completes you. 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,” the message read.
The two just recently celebrated their two-year anniversary and are currently on vacation. They began dating at the beginning of 2017. The couple made their debut at the 2017 Met Gala.
This will be the fifth time that Lopez has been engaged. She was previously married to Ojani Noa from 1997 to 1998 and Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003. She was also briefly engaged to Ben Affleck in 2002, before separating in 2004. She then married with Marc Anthony in 2004 and the two divorced in 2014. They share twins Max and Emme. Rodriguez was married from 2002 to 2008 to Cynthia Scurtis, with whom he shares two daughters, Natasha and Ella.
