Another high-profile wedding of the stars is on the way and big congratulations are in order for the happy couple! Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are engaged. The pair announced their news to the world on March 9, when A-Rod posted a picture of them holding hands on his Instagram account. The caption? “She said yes” with a heart. J. Lo also put the same image on her Instagram account.
The picture shows off the stunning ring the former baseball player gave the singer when he proposed. People reports the couple got engaged while on vacation in the Bahamas. “Everyone is super happy for them,” one of the pair’s friends told the magazine.
J. Lo and A-Rod have been dating since 2017, and moved in together that same year. The two recently marked their second anniversary with a heartwarming image and message posted to Jennifer's Instagram account. “You make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place,” the singer wrote in the Feb. 3 post. “You make me feel like a teenager starting out all over again.”

The lovebirds have spent much of their relationship paying sweet tributes to each other. At the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, J. Lo melted hearts with a message for Alex during her acceptance speech for the Vanguard Video Award. “Alex, you’re like my twin soul. My life is sweeter and better with you in it,” she said.
This marriage will not be the first for either J. Lo or Alex. She’s been married and divorced three times, and he’s also been married once.
In the course of their relationship, the couple have also brought both their families together. J. Lo has twins Emme Maribel and Maximilian David, both 10, from her high-profile marriage to singer Marc Anthony, whom she wed in 2004 and divorced in 2014. Alex has two daughters from his previous marriage: Natasha Alexander, 14, and Ella Alexander, 10.
In 2017, Alex told ET his “magical” sweetheart had quickly developed a strong bond with his daughters. “My girls adore Jennifer,” he said. “She’s a great role model and they want to do exactly what Jennifer does… I’m the luckiest father in the world to be able to expose my beautiful daughters to someone as brilliant as Jennifer.”
