I interrupt the feeling of Sunday blues to bring happy news - Jennifer Lopez is engaged to Alex Rodriguez.
The 49-year-old singer revealed the news on Instagram (where else?) and captioned an image of her hand drooping under a rather massive sparkler with 8 heart emojis on Saturday, March 9. In just a few hours the snap gained over three million likes (I was one of them).
J.Lo and her husband-to-be, New York Yankee baseball player Alex Rodriguez, are currently on holiday in the Bahamas. Jen posted a photo with her man in a sea plane and captioned it "down time" ahead of him popping the question.
Engagement rumours have been swirling for months, and A-Rod - who has two children from a previous marriage - happily posted the same snap as J.Lo to his Instagram and gushed, "She said yes". The giant square-cut engagement ring that the sports star gave her at sunset has an estimated retail value approaching a million dollars, an expert told E! News. They added: "It looks to be an emerald cut around 10 carats." Mind. Blown.
The pair recently celebrated their two-year anniversary and Jennifer, who shares twins Max and Emme with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, captioned a loved-up snap: "You make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place... in the midst of our ever-changing, ever-moving life... you make me feel like a teenager starting out all over again..."
"Every time I think I have you pegged, you surprise me in the most wonderful ways reminding me how blessed I am to have found you now in this moment at this time... our time... Te Amo Macho... #atapontheshoulder #2years".
To conclude, while J.Lo does still make me feel poor and single, she's so smitten I actually find it kind of cute. Congrats, guys.
