Alex Rodriguez Post Touching 1-Year Engagement Anniversary Tribute for Jennifer Lopez


Call him a romantic!

Alex Rodriguez took to Instagram to celebrate the one-year mark since his engagement to Jennifer Lopez.

The ESPN Analyst recalled experiencing plenty of nerve-wrecking moments in his career but nothing compared to the moment he got down on one knee to propose to the pop star.

“One year ago on a beach in the Bahamas … I was a nervous wreck, more nervous than my entire playing career, I got down on one knee and asked you a question… you said yes,” the 44-year-old captioned a video on Instagram set to The Temptations’ “My Girl.”

“Jennifer, every moment with you is a blessing. You are my best friend, my inspiration, an amazing mother, and a role model to all,” Rodriguez continued. “Macha, I am so lucky to be with you. Thank you for making my life better. I can’t wait to make more memories with you. I love you. #HappyAnniversary,” he concluded.

The sweet tribute video includes a mix of footage from public appearance and glimpses into their private life including their workouts, holidays, and more.

Rodriguez proposed last March with a sparkling 16-carat engagement ring.

Lopez felt the love and responded to the beautiful post with crying-face and heart emojis. She added, “You! That’s all I have to say.

The couple dated for two years before announcing their engagement.

While they haven’t settled on a wedding date yet, Lopez and Rodriguez revealed that they aren’t in a rush.

"But if we're going to be together for the rest of our lives, what is the rush? If that's what we're really going to do, if we're really going to be partners, if we're really going to try to build something together that we both never had or never felt like we had, which is a family with a husband and a wife and a mother and a father, and we embrace all our children. It's something that we didn't have," she explained.

They’ve posted plenty of photos of their modern family -- their children (they both have two children from previous marriages) get along really well, and they even have a good relationship with Lopez’s ex-husband, Marc Anthony.
