It’s been less than a month since Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez announced their engagement, and fans are already speculating when the happy couple will tie the knot. While the singer and former Yankee are still enjoying the glow of being newly engaged, it’s never too early to start the wedding planning.
The couple has not released any details about their wedding or even the date for their big day, but what we do know is this is sure to be a wedding to remember.
Lopez and Rodriguez got engaged in the Bahamas
It was the proposal heard around the world. When JLo showed off her enormous ring on Instagram, the common thought was, it’s about time. A-Rod and JLo appeared to be the perfect couple and fans were always wondering “are they or aren’t they”, “will they or won’t they?” The obsession over their relationship status became so intense that even talk show host Ellen DeGeneres got in on the fun.
On a recent appearance on the talk show, Ellen gave Lopez a personalized clock for a belated anniversary gift. The clock was intended to remind A-Rod that time is running out. Shortly after the couple announced their engagement, the talk show host took to Instagram with a photo of Lopez’s engagement ring and captioned it, “Yes. I’ll be your maid of honor.”
They have plenty of experience planning weddings
This won’t be the first time that either one of them has had to plan a wedding. Both celebrities have been married before. Lopez has been married three times before. In 1997, Lopez married Cuban waiter Ojani Noa, but their marriage lasted less than a year. Four years later, Lopez married back up singer Chris Judd.
That marriage lasted just over a year. Her most recent marriage was to singer Marc Anthony. Lopez and Anthony were married from 2004 to 2012.
A-Rod has been married once before. In 2002, Rodriguez married Cynthia Scurtis. The couple separated in a very public, messy divorce in 2008.
They’re sweating things out together
The famously gorgeous couple wasted no time making sure their bodies are in top form for their special day. A-Rod recently posted a video on his YouTube channel that follows the couple through their workout routine. The video is currently titled “The Grind,” but the video was originally titled “SWEATING FOR THE WEDDING.”
The former baseball player revealed this workout was day number three of their challenge. They later revealed that they were doing a 10-day challenge. We have no doubt JLo will have any problems looking smashing in her wedding dress with how intense the couple’s workout routine was.
This isn’t the first 10-day challenge the couple has participated in. JLo and A-Rod recently completed a 10-day no carbs, no sugar challenge. The “Jenny from the Block” singer said that the diet made her body and mind feel better and she would definitely do the challenge again. A-Rod, on the other hand, will likely stick to his regular diet, given the enormous amount of carbs the athlete gorged on at the end of their 10-day challenge.
A-Rod is head over heels for his future bride
As if that stunning ring didn’t say “I love you” enough, A-Rod took to Instagram to gush over just how much he is in love with his fiancee. Below a picture of the two of them, A-Rod posted, in part, “She’s been working so hard lately. I’m glad we were able to enjoy a quick little break before she dives into this new project.” He continued “Love you baby and continue to shine, fly high, and inspire us all.”
If his online love letters are any indication, A-Rod’s vows are going to be nothing short of perfect.
