Lopez, 49, just shared the news on her Instagram page with the caption “♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️,” which was joined by a huge emerald-cut sparkler.
The two began dating in February of 2017, after crossing paths while having lunch.
“I was having lunch somewhere and I saw him as he passed by, afterwards I went outside and for some reason I felt like tapping him on the shoulder,” Lopez told Ellen DeGeneres.
Lopez said that they first started chatting about living in Los Angeles, as Rodriguez had just moved to California after residing on the East Coast for years. Eventually, he reached out to ask her on a date.
“He texted me, said, ‘Let’s go out to dinner,’ and I said, ‘OK,'” Lopez recalled. “We had a nice dinner.”
This will be the fifth time that Lopez has been engaged. The “Ni Tu Ni Yo” singer was previously married to Ojani Noa from 1997 to 1998.
And backup dancer Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003.
She then tied the knot with Marc Anthony in 2004 and divorced in 2014, the former couple share twins Max and Emme.
She was also briefly, famously engaged to Ben Affleck in 2002, before separating in 2004.
As for Rodriguez, he was married from 2002 to 2008 to Cynthia Scurtis, with whom he shares two daughters, Natasha and Ella.
Meanwhile, both their kids seem to have gotten close over the past year, attending Lopez’s Las Vegas shows and spending holidays together!
