Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are engaged. They announced the proposal Saturday by posting a photo of Jennifer’s diamond engagement ring. “She said yes,” the former Yankees star captioned the Instagram photo. Jennifer posted the exact same photo onto her own account, tagging The Ellen DeGeneres Show and captioning it with a string of heart emoticons. Alex proposed during the couple’s current romantic beach getaway, and the picture appeared to be taken on the shore beside a roaring bonfire. A-Rod and J.Lo are currently vacationing in Baker’s Bay, according to E!, and have been showering their Instagram accounts with photos of their vacation as of late. Jennifer’s representative, Benny Medina, confirmed the engagement to People: “They are on vacation and got engaged today.” Jennifer and Alex have been going strong for two years and have long hinted they did see a wedding in the future, though have been allowing things to unfold naturally rather than rush into an engagement.
Brandon Hill of Steve Quick Jeweler told US Weekly, “A-Rod went with a very classic emerald-cut diamond which accentuates Jennifer’s fingers with its elongated shape. The diamond looks to be around 15 carats and is colorless with the highest clarity. It’s set in a simple but elegant solitaire mounting which will look beautiful with a wedding band next to it in the future.” So, how much is it? He says the ring is “estimated at around $1.4 million.” WOW!
