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.

Congratulations on your engagement, Jennifer and Alex!
