Jennifer Lopez’s Romantic Seaside Proposal in the Bahamas

American superstar Jennifer Lopez might be Jenny from the block, but she’s got one rock that won’t fool anyone – her engagement ring from former Major League Baseball player Alex Rodriguez.  

After a two-year courtship, Rodriguez proposed while on holiday in the Bahamas on March 9, 2019, going down on one knee on a sandy beach while Lopez looked on in surprise and disbelief. The couple, affectionately dubbed “J-Rod”, then showed off the gleaming emerald-cut diamond ring – estimated to be 10-20 carats and worth at least a cool million (or more) – on Instagram.

What made their proposal even cooler? When former US president Barack Obama sent them a hand-written note congratulating them on their engagement, and when popular TV host Ellen Degeneres revealed that she might have been the reason why the couple got engaged.
