Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez got engaged this weekend, while on holiday in the Bahamas, just to be really romantic here.

The singer announced the happy news very simple on Instagram, with some heart emoji and a picture of his hand, holding hers, showing off the diamond ring.

And what. A. Ring. Emerald cut, set on what appears to be a simple platinum band. And it is huge, but just the right amount of huge (IMHO).

Naturally, the internet has already speculated on the cost, and it's believed to be around 15 carats and worth between $1 and $5 million dollars. No messing around here.

43-year-old Alex Rodriguez also shared the news on Instagram, writing, 'she said yes'. The pair have been dating for two years, and JLo recently said he made her 'feel like a teenager starting out all over again'.

We can't wait for the wedding.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
