The pair shared an elegant and lavish night with their closest friends and family--and they looked so beautiful together.

She shared this adorable pic of Alex and their daughters Emme and Ella, and it's just so cute. The girls are growing up side by side, and soon they'll be able to call each other "sisters." 


The kids were all dressed up for the occasion.

Max, Emme, Tasha, and Ella and Jen's niece, Lucie, posed for the cutest pic together. The kids got all dressed up for their parents' engagement celebration and we can't wait to see how cute they'll look at the wedding.  

Leah Remini and other famous friends were in attendance.

The actress has been one of J.Lo's friends for years so of course she was present. Jen's mom, Guadalupe, and longtime manager Benny Medina were also there. The singer's vocal coach, Stevie Mackey, was joined by singer Sheléa for a beautiful performance where they sang Michael Jackson’s “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” for the couple.


Jennifer looked as beautiful as ever.

She has had such a hectic year in her career, with a tour in the summer and so much movie promo for her movie, Hustlers. Her engagement happened in the middle of all of this and now she finally gets to celebrate with her loved ones. 

The decorations were so elegant and tasteful.

J.Lo shared a video of her place setting and you can see the menu for the event and it sounds delicious. Guests enjoyed a salad to start, the second course consisted of pumpkin squash tortellini with brown butter and sage sauce and guests could choose between potato-crusted sea bass or roasted chicken as their entrée. 


The couple have not revealed when they are tying the knot.

With her performance at the 2020 Super Bowl quickly approaching, Jen might not have enough time to squeeze in some wedding planning until then. They haven't given many clues just yet, except for saying that Max will walk his mom down the aisle and the former Yankees player saying that it will be "a long flight" to get to their wedding destination.
