The 49-year-old announces the happy news on Instagram with a picture of her enormous emerald-cut diamond ring

Jennifer Lopez is engaged to former baseball player Alex Rodriguez after a romantic proposal in the Bahamas.

The singer announced the news by posting a picture of her hand decorated with a huge, emerald-cut diamond ring, captioning it with a row of heart emojis, on Instagram early this morning.

The 49-year-old’s new fiancé Alex, 43, also shared the news on social media, posting the same picture with the caption: “She said yes!”

He later went on to reveal to fans just how he popped the question, sharing an intimate video on Instagram Stories of the couple’s luxury bedroom covered in red roses.

J-Lo then followed a trail of petals on the floor towards the bed, on which he’d written ‘I heart U’ in even more rose petals – the place it's believed the proposal took place.
