Alex Rodriguez gets engaged to Jennifer Lopez with the $1 million ring she deserves
A-Rod and JLo are currently on a romantic beachside getaway in Bakers Bay, Bahamas, which is where the retired baseball star popped the question
Don't be fooled by the rocks that JLo got. Actually, this time around, there is nothing to get fooled by, because that $1 million rock that Jennifer Lopez is rocking is the perfect engagement ring that her longtime beau Alex Rodriguez gifted her with. We've got to say, the former MLB player did our girl right by getting that that emerald cut stunner.
A-Rod and JLo are currently on a romantic beachside getaway in Bakers Bay, Bahamas, which is where the retired baseball star popped the question. Interestingly, this is reportedly the same location where Justin Bieber asked Hailey Bieber to marry him last year. He shared the news of the engagement with a zoomed in picture of the two of them holding hands, showing off the beautiful, large ring along with the caption: "she said yes ♥️". JLo shared the same photo accompanied with many tiny hearts: "♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️."
"J. Lo's new emerald-cut stunner is what engagement ring dreams are made of," E! news quotes Jewelry and style expert Lauren McCawley as saying. "An approximate 15-carat diamond sparkles in a platinum solitaire setting and could easily retail for $1 Million." With the engagement, JLo joins the "emerald cut club" which features the likes of Beyoncé, Amal Clooney, Elizabeth Taylor and Angelina Jolie. Not too shabby for JLo.
The engagement comes just after A-Rod posted a message regarding soulmates on Instagram, possibly contemplating about how JLo is his soulmate and how he wants to make it official. “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 couple celebrated their two-year anniversary on February 4th and the couple who have no qualms in sharing their love for each other on social media marked the milestone by posting emotional, heartfelt messages for each other. “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,” said A-Rod, adding, "From baseball games, to traveling across the world to shows in Vegas. We have done it all together and every moment with you is cherished," he continued.
"Where this road will take us next is unknown but there is no one else I would rather have by my side. The journey is just beginning and I am excited for what's ahead."
JLo reciprocated with "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..."
It was in 2017 that the couple confirmed their romance, and the lovebirds have since been very open about their love for each other.
