Motown legend Jennifer Lopez and her “twin soul”, noted egomaniac Alex Rodriguez, are now betrothed. For real this time. A-Rod threw up a pic of JLo’s hand adorned with a suprisingly understated, almost a trinket of a diamond engagement ring on his Instagram last night labeled “she said yes.” Of course she said yes. Who could say no to a conversation piece engagement ring with a stone the size of their combined egos?
JLo posted the same pic on her IG, accompanied by several black hearts.
JLo’s ride-or-die manager Benny Medina and A-Rod’s rep Ron Berkowitz both confirmed the engagement, with Ron telling People that the couple “are on vacation and got engaged today.”
A “friend of the couple” says that Narcissus and Narcissa got engaged in the Bahamas at Bakers Bay (you can see the beach bonfire in the background) and “everyone is super happy for both of them.” They celebrated their two-year anniversary together as a giant monolith to self-regard on Feb. 3. A-Rod hinted that he was popping the question in an Instagram Story post earlier on Saturday, according to E!.
He shared an excerpt from a poem called “Soulmate” that was most definitely in honor of his now-fiancée.
“A soulmate isn’t someone who completes you. No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to complete yourself,” the poem says. “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.”
J-Rod met for the first time several years ago when JLo’s now ex-husband Marc Anthony threw out the first pitch at a Yankees game. They began dating two years ago when they ran into each other by chance at the Beverly Hills Hotel and it’s been a social media-scorching true love affair ever since.
It’s like a beautiful fairy tale. That’s if you forget that this will be her fourth marriage and fifth engagement (Never 4Get Bennifer 1.0!) and his second marriage. That’s not counting his on-again/off-again longtime love story with fellow former New York Yankee Derek Jeter and the numerous women who reportedly received A-Rod themed gift bags after hooking up with him. Still – a fairy tale.
