Just weeks after celebrating their two year anniversary, the couple announced the proposal Saturday by posting a photo of Jennifer’s massive diamond engagement ring.
‘She said yes,’ the former Yankees star, 43, captioned the Instagram photo.
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 then rush into an engagement.
The actress recently told People they ‘think about getting married… it will happen naturally when and if it’s supposed to.’
Having been married three times already, Jennifer explained she wanted to be absolutely certain the fourth time would last before jumping into anything.
‘I rushed into three different marriages. At this point I want to be sure.’
Insiders have previously claimed an engagement was imminent.
‘An engagement is definitely on the horizon,’ an insider told Us Weekly, ‘Alex is obsessed with Jen and spends as much time as he can with her.’
A-Rod’s marriage to Jen would be his second, having been previously married to Cynthia Scurtis from 2002 to 2008.
