Baseball champion and “Jenny from the Block” announced their engagement via instagram on Saturday whilst on their beachside getaway basking in the Bahamas. Rodriguez and Lopez both posted the same snap of them holding one another’s hand, with a platinum solitaire star-of-a-diamond resting ravishingly on her daintily manicured ring-finger.
J-Rod have been together since 2017, when Lopez apparently approached him during his lunch. This will be the fourth marriage for Lopez and the second for Rodriguez.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the couple gush over each other and their compatibility, with Rodriguez claiming “We are very much twins.. We’re both Leos; we’re both from New York; we’re both Latino and about 20 other things.” and Lopez saying “I understand him in a way that I don’t think anyone else could, and he understands me in a way that no one else could ever”.
In an exclusive statement to E! News, the President of WP Diamonds Andrew Brown estimates the multi-talented artist’s ring to be worth about seven figures. “I would imagine Jennifer Lopez’s engagement ring to have a retail value approaching a million dollars”. He adds “It looks to be an emerald cut around 10 carats, likely an extremely good stone — VS in colour and clarity”.
Congratulations to the iconic duo!
