Everyone seems to be excited about Alex Rodriguez's engagement to Jennifer Lopez and this isn't limited to their fans. On March 21 night, A-Rod shared an image of a handwritten note he received from former President Barack Obama on his upcoming wedding to the 'World of Dance' judge.

According to the image, the note reads: "Michelle and I just wanted to congratulate you on your engagement. After 26 years together, we can say that whatever challenges life may bring, sharing them with someone you love makes it all better. All the best, Barack Obama."

A-Rod and J.Lo got engaged earlier this month when the former Yankees star proposed to the 'On The Floor' singer on a beach in the Bahamas, according to an earlier report by MEA WorldWide (MEAWW).

A few days after they announced their engagement, Lopez shared some photos of her future husband proposing to her, which also included her reaction.

Rodriguez tweeted the note "means the world to us". Obama is the former president who knows something about making a marriage work. He said previously that the three questions you should ask when trying to figure out if the woman you're with is the one you want to marry are: is the person interesting, is she funny, and will she make a good mother.

If the recently engaged couple has the kind of marriage that the Obamas have, then they should be just fine in life. Michelle Obama wrote in her memoir 'Becoming' about how her husband had popped the question in a restaurant. The former first lady wrote that during the meal, he had tricked her into thinking that he didn't want to settle down just before a waiter came to their table with a ring on her dessert plate.

She wrote in her book: "He'd riled me up because this was the very last time he would invoke his inane marriage argument, ever again, as long as we both should live." The Obama's tied the knot in October 1992. This will be Lopez's fourth marriage and Rodriguez's second. Each has two children from previous marriages.
