Alex Rodriguez is used to hitting home runs, having power 696 balls over the fence during his Major League Baseball career.

But he really hit one out of the park earlier this month.

That’s when Rodriguez proposed to Jennifer Lopez and the singer/actress/all-around-goddess replied with one simple, albeit hugely meaningful, syllable:

Indeed, the mega famous and ultra wealthy couple is now engaged.

And they’ve spent the two weeks since this announcement basking in each other’s hotness, while also gushing over each other on social media.

"A soulmate isn’t someone who completes you. No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to complete yourself," shared Rodriguez the day Lopez agreed to be his wife, posting a quote online that also reads:

"A soulmate is someone who loves you with so much conviction, and so much heart, that it is nearly impossible to doubt just how capable you are of becoming exactly who you have always wanted to be."

Who knew he was such a romantic, right?

This past weekend, meanwhile, Rodriguez posted the first photo we published above on his Instagram account and praised his fiancee’s acting ability in the caption.

"This beautiful woman starts shooting her movie tomorrow, ‘Hustlers,’" he began. "I won’t play spoiler, but I can’t wait until you all see how she transforms herself into a completely different character!!"

Adds the long-time steroid user:

"She’s been working so hard lately. I’m glad we were able to enjoy a quick little break before she dives into this new project. Love you baby and continue to shine, fly high and inspire all of us."

Lopez, for her part, has also appeared quite smitten with Rodriguez.

She has shared a couple photos from his proposal and she’s seemingly brushed off claims that he’s been cheating on her.

So, everything is all good, right?

You can practically hear the wedding bells ringing already, can’t you?

Maybe, some followers believe.

Maybe not, others counter.

Rodriguez, for example, loves to play the field.

We don’t mean this in a baseball sense, even though he won a pair of Gold Gloves over the course of his tainted career.

We mean it in the sense that, ever since his divorce in 2008, the legendary slugger has gone to bed with Torrie Wilson, Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson, just to name a few beautiful women.

Some might say he found the literal most beautiful woman in Jennifer Lopez and he’ll therefore be satisfied and settle down.

But Rodriguez was not an honest baseball player, serving lengthy suspensions for performance-enhancing drugs and lying multiple times about his experience with these substances.

So who’s to say he’ll be an honest lover?

Lopez, meanwhile, has been married three times.

Which is totally and completely fine. Zero judgment here.

You just get the sense that she’s maybe more in love with the idea of being in love and desperate to finally make a union work.

We mean, let’s be honest, Rodriguez came across like a total tool during his days on the diamond. It’s hard to imagine he’s changed all that much simply because he gave J. Lo a giant diamond.

To be clear, we’re rooting for these stars to make it.

We’d never actively cheer for anyone to break-up.

We just have a few questions and many doubts.
