Alex Rodriguez's proposal took six months to plan


Alex Rodriguez took six months to plan his proposal to Jennifer Lopez.

The former baseball player has revealed it took him half a year to work out how he wanted to get down on one knee for the 'On The Floor' singer.

Speaking on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he said: "I planned it for about six months. It was on the beach in the Bahamas. I had the ring, but what was interesting, in the three days prior to me going down on one knee and getting engaged, I had rehearsed three days in a row. I wanted the sunset to be perfect."

Jennifer previously revealed her and Alex are a match made in heaven because they do absolutely "everything" together.

She said: "Everything that we do, we do together. He knows my dreams and I know his dreams, and together we feel like we're stronger ... We're constantly supporting each other in our individual endeavours and thinking about all the things that we can build together. We're really happy."

Whilst Alex, 49, added: "We are very grateful ... We have [an] appreciation for where we are in our lives today, and that's what we're enjoying the most."

And Jennifer's friend Ne-Yo says the singer is "over the moon" after getting engaged.

He shared: "She's over the moon. She really is. You can totally tell. I won't say it's the happiest she's ever been - I don't personally know - but it's the happiest I've seen her since I've known her, so that being said, good job A-Rod! He comes on set from time-to-time. He's super fun. He's her biggest fan, which is great, and she lights up. She already lights up a room when she walks in, because it's just J. Lo and that's what she does, but when he comes around it's like, 'OK, [put on your] sunglasses. We get it - you guys love each other and you're happy. Alright, we understand.'"
