The former US President and his wife, Michelle Obama, gave the happy couple their stamp of approval with the heartfelt message, which was written on his personalised stationery. "Jennifer has taught me that it's less about what you wear and more about the fit", he said.

"This means the world to us #44", A-Rod wrote. "All the best, Barack Obama", the note reads. After 26 years together, we can say that whatever challenges life may bring, sharing them with someone you love makes it all better.

"She said yes", Rodriguez said in a post showing JLo's hand, now bearing a huge engagement ring.

When Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez walk a red carpet together, it's not uncommon to see the former Major League Baseball star take out his cell phone and snap a picture of his fiancée.

But their engagement was a long time coming for the couple, who knew from the start of their relationship that their love was something special.
