Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are getting married and Ellen DeGeneres might just be the reason why A-Rod decided to put a $1.4 million ring on J.Lo's finger. Jen has been asking "¿el anillo pa'cuándo?" since she released her song "El Anillo" in April 2018, and Alex finally popped the question on Saturday, March 9, 2019. And now it seems like The Ellen DeGeneres Show host might have had something to do with it.

When J.Lo posted a photo of her stunning diamond ring to announce their engagement, she tagged Ellen in the post and left many wondering why. The reason is most likely because the comedian has been pressing the couple every chance she got about whether they were planning to get married--and Jen made sure she was the first to know by tagging her in the photo. 

Jen tagged Ellen's Instagram page on her engagement announcement post.

Alex posted the photo along with a caption that said, "She said yes ♥️." Jen shared the same gorgeous shot of her engagement ring, along with nothing but red heart emojis as her caption. Some fans were wondering why Ellen was tagged in the post instead of A-Rod, but it all makes sense.

Ellen reacted to being tagged on the post in the funniest way.

Ellen commented on the post soon after Jen posted it and wrote: "Yes. I'll be your Maid of Honor."

The TV host has been badgering Jen and Alex about a proposal.

Ellen made sure to give the former baseball star a little push to propose to his sweetheart when she recently teased the former MLB player by hinting that his time to propose was running out. When J.Lo appeared on the show in February, Ellen gifted them with a hilarious Valentine's Day present. It was a giant wall clock with a photo of them in the background to remind him that it was time. "It's basically to remind him that time is ticking and he should hurry up and propose, or you should propose," the talk show host said. Jen agreed with Ellen and laughingly said: "I'm going to give this to him for Valentine's Day. 'Your time is almost up!'" 

Ellen has been asking them to get married for some time!

Ellen has been teasing them about an engagement for months and even gave Alex some ideas! Jen appeared on the show in November 2018, and Ellen jokingly said that he texted her that day to say that they were getting married. "So you'll be getting married?" she asked the singer, who stayed silent. "But I mean, you should 'cause y'all seem very happy. It would be good to do for Christmas."

Jen has some previous experience with proposals.

She revealed on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden that she has been proposed to a total of five times! She said she turned down two of the proposals, without revealing who proposed to her, but she has been married three times. She married Ojani Noa in 1997 and they split a year later, she tied the knot with dancer Cris Judd in 2002 before calling it quits in 2003, and she was married to Marc Anthony from 2004 to 2014. Jen and Alex celebrated their two-year anniversary in February and seemed to have built quite a stable and happy life together. While Ellen was awaiting the engagement for some time, it might seem too soon for some. But it does seem like they're both in a good place and are ready to make the move. We wish them the best!
