Jennifer Lopez and A-Rod Are Engaged!

J-Lo and A-Rod just became J-Rod...or at least, they will be when theirr wedding date finally arrives! That's right, the biggest names in music/movies and baseball have officially announced their plans to tie the knot. The news was shared -- where else -- on Instagram, where A-Rod (also known as the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez) posted a shot of the mondo, planet-sized engagement ring he revealed when he popped the question. His caption told the whole story, reading simply: she said yes (with a heart emoji):

she said yes ♥️

A post shared by Alex Rodriguez (@arod) on

The news was celebrated with sentiments of congratulation from well over a million people, judging by all the likes and comments.

But our favorite part of the story? Over two decades ago, when A-Rod was a mere up-and-comer while J-Lo was already a global pop superstar, she autographed a poster for him. A-Rod posted a memory of the moment, relishing the fact that at the time, she had no idea that twenty years later, she and this promising baseball stud would be planning their wedding together!

 

 

This obviously makes the J-Lo <3 A-Rod tale one of the most heartwarming celebrity love stories of all time. It just doesn't get any better than marrying your celebrity crush, after becoming a mega-celebrity yourself! We have to say, however, that there is one celebrity who has less than warm words for the soon-to-be-married couple: fellow baseball star Jose Canseco, who Tweeted not words of congratulation, but words of warning: that A-Rod was cheating on J-Lo with Canseco's ex-wife! Nothing like a Tweet-happy celebrity rival to ruin the engagement mood. We have to admit, though, it makes this whole story wayyy more interesting and scandalous:

In fact, Canseco's Twitter feed has more or less been nothing more than a barrage of accusations and challenges ruthlessly lobbed A-Rod's way...including this Tweet challening A-Rod to three rounds in the octagon, MMA style!

Whoah. The only question is, is there truth to the accusations? And what effect will it have on A-Rod's engagement and marriage? Only time will tell!
