Alex Rodriguez shares a photo of Barack Obama's handwritten congratulatory note for him and his fiance, Jennifer Lopez after news of their engagement. The note revealed a piece of advice for the couple as they embark on marriage.


You know you’re a superstar couple when your engagement elicits a response from no less than the former president of the United States.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are sky high in anticipation of their upcoming nuptials after confirming their engagement a few weeks back. Many congratulated them for finally setting their wedding wheels in motion after two years of dating but one recent well-wisher earned their respect.


Former President Barack Obama took time out from his schedule to sit down and write a note to J-Lo and A-Rod to congratulate them. In the note which the former Yankees player shared on his Instagram, Barack wrote on behalf of him and his wife a few words of wisdom for the couple.

“After 26 years together, we can say that whatever challenges life may bring, sharing them with someone you love makes it all better.”

In appreciation, Alex captioned his post, “This means the world to us” along with the hashtag, #44, a reference to the 44thPresident of the US.


Alex met the Obamas back in 2009 while they were still living in the White House. It was during his days with the Yankees and they paid the couple an official visit. Jennifer, on the other hand, performed during one of Barack’s inaugural balls following the 2008 election. More recently, she shared the stage with Michelle at the Grammy Awards as they delivered a powerful message about the unifying influence of music.

The couple was engaged on March 9 during a vacation in the Bahamas. Photos of their engagement were later shared revealing a stunning sunset by the ocean as Alex got down on one knee.


Jennifer’s ring also took center stage when she announced the news on social media. This will be her fourth marriage and Alex’s second. They each have two children from their previous marriages.
