Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez surprised everyone after they announced their engagement nearly two weeks ago via Instagram. Apart from their social media posts, the couple has remained relatively quiet about their new relationship status. But, yesterday the two finally opened up to People about this major milestone.
After Rodriguez surprised Lopez with a massive 15-carat, emerald-cut engagement ring while on a romantic trip the Bahamas, the singer says she and the former baseball player have never been more in love. "We're really happy," she told the outlet. "We have [an] appreciation for where we are in our lives today, and that's what we're enjoying the most."
As their own bond becomes stronger, so does the connectivity between their families, she added. "Everything that we do, we do together," she said of their new family unit. "He knows my dreams and I know his dreams, and together we feel like we're stronger."
Because Lopez will be busy with shooting her new film Hustlers and preparing for her "It's My Party" tour in June, it's unlikely that the couple will be able to squeeze in a wedding in the near future. But, for now, the two continue to do what they do best: Support each other every step of the way. "I don't have to play 162 games anymore, so I have a lot of time on my hands," Rodriguez told the outlet. "We're constantly supporting each other in our individual endeavors and thinking about all the things that we can build together," Lopez added. "We are very grateful."
