It’s official, JLo is heading down the wedding aisle once again. The radiant superstar confirmed the news when both her, and her future hubby, Alex Rodriguez, posted matching images to their Instagram accounts. The singer and the baseball player shared an image of the emerald-cut engagement ring that Rodriguez gave Lopez. The star simply captioned it with multiple red heart emojis while Rodriguez accompanied the image with the caption, “She said yes.” The staggering ring is said be worth $1.4 million. Andrew Fox, president of SuperJewler.com shared with Elle magazine that it “is an emerald cut of between 11 carats and 15 carats.” The stars’ Instagram posts were flooded with comments of congratulations from both fans and close friends, alike.
The couple have recently celebrated their two year anniversary. Lopez shared a five-photo gallery of her and her beau along with a gushing caption. “Two years of laughter, two years of fun, two years of adventures, of excitement, of growing and learning, of true friendship, and so much love!!” she wrote. “You make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place… in the midst of our ever-changing, ever-moving life… you make me feel like a teenager starting out all over again… Every time I think I have you pegged, you surprise me in the most wonderful ways reminding me how blessed I am to have found you now in this moment at this time… our time… Te Amo Macho… #atapontheshoulder #2years.” Rodriguez popped the question in the Bahamas where the couple are currently holidaying.
This will be Jenn’s fourth marriage and Rodriguez’s second. Lopez was first married to Cuban waiter Ojani Noa from 1997 to 1998. The marriage would end in bitter legal battles, one of which prohibited Noa from publishing a supposedly defamatory tell-all book about the relationship. After a very public relationship with rapper, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, JLo then married back-up dancer Cris Judd in 2001. The marriage would last just nine moths before the pair announced their separation due to irreconcilable differences. The singer and actress then moved on to actor Ben Affleck. The supercouple, dubbed ‘Bennifer’ by the media, announced their engagement in November 2002 but ultimately chose to part ways in 2004. Following the highly publicised break up, Jennifer began dating her long-time friend, singer Marc Anthony. After eight seemingly happy years together as well as the birth of their two children, twins Max and Emme, the couple filed for divorce in 2012. Rodriguez and Lopez began dating in 2017. Rodriguez, now a well-known sportscasting personality, has daughters, Natasha and Ella, with his ex-wife, Cynthia Scurtis, whom he divorced in 2008. No wedding date has been announced. Congratulations to the happy couple!
