Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are engaged. The couple announced the news via Instagram via a photo of their hands, with an impressive engagement ring at the finger of Lopez.

Rodriguez, a former baseball player of the New York Yankees, wrote under the photo: “She said yes”, accompanied by an emoji of a heart.

The couple has been together since the beginning of 2017 and in that same year came on the cover of the magazine Vanity Fair with their nickname, J-Rod. In January, Rodriguez told news agency AP that he and Lopez had similar backgrounds and that her latest film “Second Act” reflects their common bond.

“It really looks exactly like the life that Jennifer and I share: both born in New York, both from immigrant parents, both two children, both Latin American – they from Puerto Rico, I from the Dominican Republic. We have both gone through our ups and downs, but by now we are over 40 and we try to live the best possible lives and pass it on to others “, says Rodriguez.
