Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez fans are still reeling after the power couple got engaged on Saturday night. But as though the gorgeous sunset beach proposal and massive emerald-cut diamond ring weren't enough, A-Rod went on social media and revealed that he had one more adorable surprise in store for his new fiancé over the weekend.

Following the news of the engagement, Rodriguez posted a clip on his Instagram stories that showed that he'd covered their bedroom in full roses and in rose petals. On their bed, he'd used a bunch of the petals to spell out "I <3 U." The short video even shows J.Lo as she follows the trail of petals into the room and sees the ultraromantic gesture, and he included a heart, a kiss, and a fire sign emojis. The whole thing is incredibly thoughtful, and a perfect way to cap off what seems like it was such a heartfelt proposal.

The rose petal scene came just after Rodriguez had published a photo of J.Lo's hand sporting the gorgeous new sparkler. He captioned it simply, "She said yes,” sending fans into full-on celebration mode. J.Lo also posted the same photo with a bunch of heart symbols. Already, people have estimated the ring is about 15 to 20 carats and put its value somewhere over a cool million.

From what we can tell, Rodriguez popped the big question during the couple's beach vacation in the Bahamas. They'd posted several cozy photos relaxing by the water and enjoying an intimate yacht ride.

The couple has been dating for a little more than two years, telling everyone they wanted to take their time before moving on to the next step in their relationship. It seems like they finally did land on just the right moment, and Rodriguez made sure to get every moment right. There's no word on any wedding festivities yet, but now that we see how well he pulled off the engagement, we have no doubt he's going to crush it when it comes to wedding planning.
