Kris Jenner was quick to send love, writing: “So happy for you guys!!! Congratulations!!!” Sofia Carson was all of us, speculating on the cut of the ring. “@janelparrish wants to know if this is an emerald cut,” she wrote, tagging her friend and co-star Janel Parrish. Meanwhile, Jasmine Tookes kept things simple, leaving praise hands.
The pair, who started dating back in 2017, recently marked their two-year anniversary. "Two years of laughter. Two years of fun. Two years of adventures. Of excitement of growing and learning. Of true friendship And so much love!!” Jennifer scribed in a sappy Instagram post.
She continued to write: “You make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place... in the midst of our ever-changing, ever-moving life... you make me feel like a teenager starting out all over again... Every time I think I have you pegged, you surprise me in the most wonderful ways reminding me how blessed I am to have found you now in this moment at this time... our time... Te Amo Macho...”

And in case you're wondering why Jennifer tagged The Ellen Show in her post, it's most likely because Ellen Degeneres is always always asking the superstar when she's going to get engaged. The Ellen Show left its own comment on the picture: "Yes. I'll be your maid of honor.
Stay tuned for more details of the engagement, but we're thinking Alex popped the question while he and Jlo were away on an island vacation. Congratulations, J-Rod!
