Some will go to great lengths to make sure their proposal turns out just right—that includes Alex Rodriguez, who popped the question to Jennifer Lopez two months ago. During an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the former pro-athlete hilariously admitted to rehearsing the big moment with his assistant.

 

According to Rodriguez, the proposal was a long time coming. "I planned it for about six months and it was on a beach in the Bahamas," he said. "I had the ring, but what was interesting is the three days prior to me going down on one knee and getting engaged was I rehearsed three days in a row. I wanted the sunset to be perfect." Thankfully, he was able to time it just right, as evidenced by his Instagram post announcing the engagement.

Due to their busy schedules, Lopez told WKTU's Cubby & Carolina In the Morning that the couple hasn't started planning yet. "You know, we just got engaged! Then right afterwards we started working right away, and we're working the rest of the year, so I don't know what's going to happen," she said. "We haven't decided if we're going to squeeze it in somewhere or we're going to wait, so, you know. I really don't know yet. It's easy, I'm not lying right now!"

 

With Lopez in the middle of preparing for her "It's My Party" tour and shooting the upcoming movie Hustlers, the couple may have to put off wedding planning indefinitely—but they will still continue to prioritize their relationship. "We're constantly supporting each other in our individual endeavors and thinking about all the things that we can build together," Lopez told People in March. "We are very grateful."
