For months now, fan have been speculating that an engagement between Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez is on the horizon. Now, they're thinking that the day has finally arrived, due to the suspicious-looking ring J.Lo is wearing in her latest Instagram.
A-Rod and his triple-threat girlfriend spent the Fourth of July on the beach with their families. Both took to Instagram to share snaps of the sunny day, but one photo in particular is capturing the world's attention. J.Lo posted a pic of herself and her honey cuddled up in the sand, with Lopez wearing a ring on that all important finger. Hmm... Could that be an engagement ring, perhaps?
“It’s the lil quiet moments that matter the most...💕,” the singer captioned the summery snapshot.
People went crazy in the comments, wishing their favorite celeb couple well and sharing their hopes of the new jewelry being an engagement ring. “So she has big ol ring on is she engaged??,” one commenter wrote. “Such a beautiful couple I really hope it's the engagement ring. They belong together and wish them many years of happiness!!!,” another chimed in.
While The “El Anillo” singer chose not to respond to any comments with a confirmation or denial, Entertainment Tonight points out the ring is a simple piece of gold jewelry—hardly the sizable sparkler we’d expect Rodriguez to propose with.
Whether their Fourth of July included a proposal or not, their beach trip still looked pretty memorable. The former baseball player posted a video to his account of Lopez and the rest of the fam riding around Bridgehampton, New York, and singing along to The Notorious B.I.G. and Cardi B.
The trip also included a family bike ride according to ET, and some festive sparklers, which Lopez posted to her feed.
Although we hope both Rodriguez and Lopez keep sharing snapshots on social media, it may be a while before they share any engagement news. The mom of two, who has three marriages under her belt, said she is in no rush to tie the knot.
"We have to take our time,” she said during a Good Morning America interview last month. “I've made plenty of mistakes in my past, and it's about—we're mature now. We're grown-ups and we're gonna take our time and we're gonna do things at our own pace." She added, "Our life right now is incredibly wonderful. Between our kids and our work, we're truly blessed. We don't need anything more right now."
