Jennifer Lopez shares photos showing Alex Rodriguez going down on one knee for romantic proposal
Jennifer Lopez, 49, and Alex Rodriguez, 43, have been dating over over two years and are on a romantic getaway in the Bahamas
Jennifer Lopez and her fiance Alex Rodriguez posted pictures from their engagement which was held on Saturday. The pictures showed the retired New York Yankee going down on his knee as he asked Jennifer to marry him. And she, of course, said yes. JLo also posted pictures of her engagement ring which looks stunning.
Jennifer, 49, and Alex, 43, have been dating over over two years and are on a romantic getaway in the Bahamas. They each have two children from previous relationships.
Alex shared an Insta story where he wrote about how grateful he was about the engagement along with a pretty monochrome picture of the two of them together.
He wrote, "There aren't many words to share with you, only feelings. Gratitude. Excitement. And just... joy. We know there is work to do to keep building a family and future we can be proud of, and we can't do it without all of you. We are so thankful for all your messages of love and congratulations." He also captioned the pictures on his feed: "Locking it down. #futuremrsrodriguez."
According to sources quoted by People, this came as a surprise to JLo who didn't realise what Alex was planning. The source was quoted as saying, "Jennifer is ecstatic and so are their families and friends. Very few people knew Alex planned on proposing. It was very much a surprise for Jennifer. It was just how Alex wanted it."
The report also suggested that Alex and Jennifer's kids will be a big part of the wedding. A source said, "For them both, they are still all about their family with the four kids. Their initial strong attraction for each other would have quickly faded if they had not been able to come together as a family."
The source added, "Their kids all accepted each other and got along from the beginning. It’s always tricky when you merge families, but Jennifer and Alex did a great job from the start. The kids are amazing together. And they have wanted Jennifer and Alex to get married for a long time. They will all definitely be a huge part of the wedding."
