Jenny from the block is ready to walk down the aisle once again with her beau, Alex Rodriguez.

The gorgeous pair had been dating for two years, and fans have long awaited the announcement of their engagement.

Alex Rodriguez, 43, officially broke the wonderful news of his engagement to J-Lo, 49, on his Instagram page and captioned the photo of their hands, simply with, "She said yes."


Rodriguez popped the question while they were on a romantic beach getaway in Bakers Bay, Bahamas.

Lopez also shared the same photo on her Instagram page and also kept it simple with a number of black heart emojis.


The former MLB player's rep Ron Berkowitz confirmed the forthcoming nuptial and told PEOPLE:

"They are on vacation and got engaged today."

The photos themselves spoke a thousand words. But what's really got the public buzzing is that glorious rock on J.Lo's finger.


In response to Jessie's tweet, below, yes, we shall.

Now, about that diamond ring. Andrew Brown, the President of WP Diamonds, estimated that the ring is worth about a million buckaroos. And we thought J-Lo's love don't cost a thing.

Brown confirmed with E Online:

"I would imagine Jennifer Lopez's engagement ring to have a retail value approaching a million dollars. It looks to be an emerald cut around 10 carats, likely an extremely good stone—VS in color and clarity."





Lauren McCawley, another jewelry and style expert, vouched for the ring's worth.

"J. Lo's new emerald cut stunner is what engagement ring dreams are made of. An approximate 15-carat diamond sparkles in a platinum solitaire setting and could easily retail for $1 Million."

At that price, the ring must serve another purpose other than blinding people.



Ira Weissman, founder of The Diamond Pro, thinks the emerald cut stone could exceed the million dollar mark in value.

"This approximately 20 carat emerald cut diamond is exquisitely cut and of superb quality. When you have an extremely rare and timelessly breathtaking stone such as this one, the goal of the ring should be to show off the rock naturally with as little embellishment as possible - the perfect compliment to the ageless enduring beauty of J.Lo."
"The ring is worth approximately $5 million dollars."

The ring hits both of these criteria, sufficiently.


That size, tho.





The Second Act star first met Rodriguez in 2005 at Shea stadium when the Yankees were playing the New York Mets. Fate brought them together 11 years later when Lopez approached him at the same restaurant in Beverly Hills where she was enjoying her lunch. Later that evening, he asked her out on a dinner date at the Hotel Bel Air, and the rest is history.

This would be A-Rod's second marriage after Cynthia Scurtis filed for their divorce on July 7, 2008; and it will be Lopez's fourth. She was previously married to waiter Ojani Noa (1997 to 1998), dancer Cris Judd (2002 to 2003) and singer Marc Anthony (2004 to 2014)

The couple had already introduced their children to each other early in their relationship. Lopez retains primary custody of her 11-year-old twins, Maximilian David and Emme Maribel, with whom she had with her ex-husband Marc Anthony; and Rodriguez has two daughters – Ella Alexander, 10, and Natasha Alexander, 14.

The retired athlete told Extra in a 2017 interview:

"Our kids get along really well. We're both from New York, we're both Latin, we're both in our 40s, we're really enjoying life, but she really is one of the most impressive and smartest human beings I have ever met."

Congratulations to the happy couple!

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
