Rodriguez, who now works for ESPN, reportedly popped the question in the Bahamas, and he shared the news on social media Saturday night.
He also hinted at the possibility of engagement in a message on his Instagram Story about soulmates a day before, saying that "a soulmate isn't someone who completes you". He chose to tweet this as he was watching Lopez on her show, "World of Dance".
She said: "I feel like I'm in my second, third, or fourth act".
Eventually, the baseball star reached out and asked Jennifer on a date.
J.Lo also shared the photo, while her longtime manager, Benny Medina, confirmed the news, and the sportsman's representative, Ron Berkowitz, told People, "They are on vacation and got engaged today".
Opening up about how Rodriguez's decision to pop the question during the couple's romantic getaway to the Bahamas was "very fitting", the source went on to explain that the destination "has always been very special to them". "We just love spending time together". Our kids love each other, so it's a good thing.
Canseco admitted to using steroids throughout his 17-year career and exposed them as a plaguing the sport in his 2005 book, "Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big". While the two have already experienced wedding ceremonies and might opt for something very low-key that is just about them, it's also quite possible that Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez go glam with a handsome wedding that pulls out all the stops.
J.Lo's twins, Max and Emme, are from her marriage to singer Marc Anthony, which ended in 2014. While Arod has two daughters, Natasha and Ella with his ex-wife, Cynthia Scurtis.
One exclaimed: "Finally! Congrats", while another added: "Ridiculously happy for you both!"
