Alex Rodriguez ended his Major League Baseball career with 696 home runs.
But the polarizing third basement saved his biggest swing for Saturday night…
… when he aimed for the fences with Jennifer Lopez and connected!
On an agreement to become husband and wife!
That’s right, readers, Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are engaged! To be married!
Both superstars shared the enormous news at the same time posing a photo of the gigantic rock Rodriguez gifted to Lopez on Instagram.
“She said yes,” captioned the image, which featured the diamond on his bride-to-be’s finger, while J. Lo published the same snapshot along with including eight black heart emojis in her caption.
Prepare yourselves to be blown away — but here’s an up-close look at the rock in question:
According to a People Magazine insider, Rodriguez popped the life-altering question during a vacation in the Bahamas.
He also did so after posted a quote on his Instagram Story defining a soulmate.
It reads as follows:
A soulmate isn’t someone who completes you. No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to complete yourself.
A soulmate is someone who loves you with so much conviction, and so much heart, that it is nearly impossible to doubt just how capable you are of becoming exactly who you have always wanted to be.
Who knew Alex Rodriguez was such a romantic, huh?
The happy news comes nearly seven weeks after the couple celebrated its two-year anniversary on February 3.
Back when they first got together, most observers assumed this would be a mere fling between two very rich and attractive people with an extensive dating history.
But they actually have proven to support each other at all times in public and the feelings have seemed quite real for awhile now.
“You make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place … in the midst of our ever-changing, ever moving life,” Lopez wrote in part of a touching Instagram post to celebrate the two-year mark.
Added Rodriguez in his own message at the time:
“We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words.”
Rodriguez was previously married to Cynthia Scurtis.
They divorced in 2008 after six years of marriage and share two kids, Natasha, 14, and Ella, 10.
Lopez, meanwhile, was previously married to Ojani Noa, Chris Judd AND Marc Anthony. She shares twins Max and Emme, 11, with Anthony, who she divorced in 2014.
Yes, that’s three marriages — but Lopez has said in the past she would still be open to a fourth.
“I do believe in marriage,” she told Harper’s Bazaar a year ago. “And I would love to grow old with somebody in a committed relationship.
“But I’m not forcing anything right now.”
As for A. Rod? She told this same magazine in this same interview:
“It’s good, it’s healthy; we communicate well. We understand each other’s lives in a way that most other people couldn’t.”
CONGRATS TO THE HAPPY COUPLE!
