From Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’s decadent ceremony in France surrounded by loved ones, to Hailey and Justin Bieber’s The Notebook-themed romantic nuptials in South Carolina, in 2019 we’ve witnessed multiple lavish celebrity weddings. Up next? Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez look set to walk down the aisle. Here is everything we know about their upcoming big day, set for 2020.
How did Alex Rodriguez propose to Jennifer Lopez?
On 9 March 2019, Rodriguez got down on one knee and popped the question at sunset on a beach in the Bahamas.
During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, A-Rod spilled some details: “I planned it for about six months and it was on a beach in the Bahamas… I had the ring, but what was interesting… prior to me going down on one knee and getting engaged was, I rehearsed for three days in a row.”
Where did they have their engagement party?
On 27 September 2019, the couple threw an engagement party. A relatively low-key affair, the four-course dinner with family and friends was described as “beautifully elegant”.
Lopez shared details of the meal in an Instagram post, including a first course comprised of a salad of baby greens with Roquefort cheese, candied walnuts, apples, and pomegranate vinaigrette. The second course sounded just as delicious: pumpkin-squash tortellini with brown butter and sage. And the third course? A choice of potato-crusted seabass with romanesco, shaved autumn squashes, and moscato beurre blanc or roast chicken with truffle crushed potatoes and caramelized Brussels sprouts.
Has a wedding date been set?
No official wedding date has been set yet, but the big day will take place in 2020. Lopez has also shared some telling details. In a YouTube video from her tour, J Lo revealed that she be tying the knot “soon”: “Not soon soon, but — next year. I’d like a big wedding. And I’d like to get married in a church this time. I’ve never been married in a church.”
Will their children play a part on the big day?
Lopez has 11-year-old twins with her ex-husband Marc Anthony: Emme and Max. Rodriguez has two daughters with his former wife Cynthia Scurtis: 14-year-old Natasha and 11-year-old Ella. Lopez told E! that her son Max will be the one to walk her down the aisle.
