Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are engaged, and despite the fact that her ~love don't cost a thing~ (you're welcome/sorry), he went ahead and gave her a $1 million hunk of diamond. They've been a couple for juuuuuust over two years, and now that they're heading to the altar, let's review their insanely hot relationship—which actually started a full 20 years ago. But, like, not before I make everyone watch the "Jenny From the Block" video, bye:

A-Rod goes on Ellen to tell the story of how they reconnected:

"Someone taps me on the shoulder, and I turn around and I do not recognize this person. And it's Jennifer, but she's dressed up as Harlee from Shades of Blue and she's in her jeans and her big boots. And it took me about four or five seconds. And she said, 'It's Jennifer! It's Jennifer!' I go, 'Oh my God, Jennifer, you look beautiful.' I was so embarrassed and then I got a little nervous, and I'm like, 'This is so goofy, we all know who Jennifer is and she's everywhere.' Then we basically had a small chit-chat...and she says, 'You have my number, reach out.' And I went home that night and reached out."
