Jennifer Lopez shows off massive engagement ring on date with Alex Rodriguez

By Sarah Walker

Jennifer Lopez and fiancé Alex Rodriguez were positively glowing as they stepped out for a date night in New York City on the weekend, just one week after announcing their engagement on social media. And J.Lo’s eye-popping diamond engagement ring was front and centre! The loved-up pair appeared to be on cloud nine as photographers snapped them walking arm-in-arm into a Manhattan restaurant.

The former Major League Baseball player popped the question to the Blue Bloods actress on March 9 while the pair took a romantic vacation in the Bahamas. A-Rod reportedly undertook the planning for the proposal himself, and even chose the ring. Brandon Hill of Steve Quick Jeweler previously told Us Weekly the diamond stunner has an estimated value of around US$1.4 million and “looks to be around 15 carats and is colourless with the highest clarity.”

The couple shared the happy news of their engagement with fans along with the first image of Jennifer's gorgeous ring on A-Rod’s Instagram soon after he popped the question. “She said yes,” he wrote using a heart emoji. His multi-hyphenate fiancée shared the same snap with fans.

The dynamic duo – who together, with their kids, make a family of six – have been dating since 2017 and moved in together that same year. They recently marked their second anniversary with a heartwarming image and message posted to Jennifer's Instagram account on Feb. 3. “You make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place,” the singer wrote. “You make me feel like a teenager starting out all over again.”

The pair 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.
