Everybody is over the moon about Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguezs engagement — including former President Barack Obama.

On Friday, Rodriguez shared an intimate note of congratulations from none other than the 44th president of the U.S. and the former First Lady Michelle Obama.

“Michelle and I just wanted to congratulate you on your engagement,” the handwritten letter read. The former commander in chief went on to share a piece of advice with the couple, writing, “After 26 years together, we can say that whatever challenges life may bring, sharing them with someone you love makes it all better. All the best, Barack Obama.”


Both Lopez and Rodriguez were certainly elated over the thoughtful note, with A-Rod sharing his joy on social media yesterday.

Alongside the photo of the sweet gesture, the legendary baseball shortstop wrote, “This means the world to us. #44”

Lopez reposted the image to her own Insta feed with eight black heart emojis as the caption.

As for what’s next for the pair, we anticipate the former New York Yankee will be joining his bride-to-be on the road in between his commitments with Fox Sports. Lopez recently announced her “It’s My Party” tour, which kicks off June 7.

There’s no word on a wedding date as of yet.
