Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are in pure engagement bliss!

The World of Dance judge spoke out for the first time since A-Rod's surprise proposal earlier this month, and let's just say, Jenny from the block couldn't be happier. "We have [an] appreciation for where we are in our lives today, and that’s what we’re enjoying the most," she told People. "We’re really happy."

"Everything that we do, we do together," Jennifer continued. "He knows my dreams and I know his dreams, and together we feel like we’re stronger….We’re constantly supporting each other in our individual endeavors and thinking about all the things that we can build together."

Last week, J. Lo shared photos from the moment Alex got down on one knee. The pictures captured the range of emotions — mostly shock, excitement, and joy — both she and Alex went through during his intimate beachside proposal.

The former baseball player also shared a photo of a sweet moment from his proposal to his Instagram Story. Alongside a beautiful shot of him kissing Jennifer's forehead, he wrote a heartfelt message to his wife-to-be. "There aren't many words to share with you, only feelings. Gratitude. Excitement. And just... joy. We know there is work to do to keep building a family and future we can be proud of, and we can't do it without all of you," he wrote. "We are so thankful for all your messages of love and congratulations."

The power couple, who have been dating since February 2017, got engaged on Saturday (March 9) while vacationing in Baker's Bay in Great Guana Cay. A-Rod surprised Jennifer with a 16-carat diamond ring.
