Former MLB player Alex Rodriguez proved his love for fiancée Jennifer Lopez with a massive bouquet of red roses which the "Ain't It Funny" singer shared on Instagram along with a heartfelt emotional message.
"Jenny From The Block" hitmaker Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are one of Hollywood's most beautiful couples. The pair started dating in 2017 and got engaged during a romantic vacation in the Bahamas in 2019.
While Lopez and Rodriguez haven't tied the knot, they still find ways to prove their love to one another. On Valentine's Day, Rodriguez went all out to show the "Ain't It Funny" singer how much he's still deeply in love with her.

THE SWEETEST GESTURE
Lopez was so thrilled with the beautiful bouquet of roses that she took to Instagram to share with her followers. In a video clip showing off the flowers, the singer's emotional response could be heard over Frank Sinatra's "My Funny Valentine."
The "I'm Real" singer panned her camera closer to reveal the lush, neatly arranged red roses which came with giant balloons attached. At the end of the video, Lopez confessed that the romantic gesture put a smile on her face.
Besides the emotional reaction that could be heard in the video clip, Lopez also took the opportunity to express her own sentiments towards Rodriguez in a heartfelt caption. She wrote:
"You keep me laughing...I love your wickedly funny sense of humor... and how you always try to make every room you enter a more joyful one."
THE MONTH OF LOVE
In the caption, Lopez also revealed why February is such a special month for the couple. She and Rodriguez met for the second time in February 2017 and started dating shortly afterward.
The couple officially met for the first time in 2005 when Lopez was still newly married to her ex-husband, Marc Anthony. Lopez and Anthony had attended a baseball game in New York, where Rodriguez played for the New York Yankees.
A LOVE MEANT TO BE
Although there was a clear connection the first time Lopez and Rodriguez met, the relationship only took off 12 years later, and by this time, both stars were divorced from their spouses.
Lopez and Anthony, born Mark Muñiz, divorced in 2014 after ten years of marriage and two children, while Rodriguez and Cynthia Scurtis ended their marriage in 2008 and also share two daughters.
BLENDING THE FAMILIES
Lopez and Rodriguez's romance was like a fairytale as the pair quickly found that they had so much in common being Latino New Yorkers who share the same star sign, Leo. The couple was also thrilled that their kids get along so well.
The "If You Had My Love" singer's 12-year-old twins Emme and Maximillian are very close in age to Rodriquez's daughters, Natasha, 16, and Alexander, 12.
