Now, he’s just got to find the right moment to propose. He wants it to be absolutely perfect.”
J.Lo went on Ellen on Feb. 13 to talk about the sweet gift Alex got her for their two-year anniversary on Feb. 3: personal phone call from Fixer Upper‘s Joanna Gaines. She said, “[C]ome our anniversary, it was like a Sunday, he was like, ‘I want you to do a meeting,” and I hate meetings. He loves meetings, you know, I’m always dragged into these business meetings. ‘I want you to do this meeting with us for this architect for the house. He’s like, ‘We’re not going to spend a ton of money,’ and I’m like, ‘OK.’ Then, he opens up the FaceTime, and it’s Joanna Gaines!”
There has been engagement speculation for J.Lo and A-Rod for a while now, especially after Jennifer released “El Anillo” in Apr., 2018. Later, Lopez would go on the Tonight Show to confirm that the son was “definitely” about wanting a boyfriend to propose. “No pressure,” she told Jimmy Fallon. “But I felt like all women get to a point where they say, ‘OK, what’s up? We’re good, everything’s great, so… what’s going on?’”
