Lopez has a killer beach bod, and Rodriguez is a master of hitting her angles. The pop star playfully captioned this snap with the hashtage "beachbums" on her Instagram.

During the couple's romantic getaway in the Bahamas, Rodriguez popped the question to his love of two years, and he announced on Instagram (of course) that "she said yes" on March 9.

Before hitting the red carpet at the 2019 Grammy Awards, A-Rod made sure to fulfill his Instagram boyfriend duties by documenting some behind-the-scenes moments.

"On the way to the Grammys…I love that hat baby," he said sweetly in a video on his Instagram Story of the pair driving to the show.

"Don’t get too close to me!" she joked of her hat's wide brim.

"I’m gonna have to sit about three yards away from Jennifer," he laughed.

He Looks at Her Like This on the Red Carpet


We all know J.Lo is jaw-dropping — but it's nice to see that A-Rod feels the same way. The 43-year-old made sure to snap a few more shots of his love's look as she posed on the red carpet.

He Posts Playful Throwbacks

In addition to patiently taking photos of your significant other, part of what makes an above-and-beyond Instagram boyfriend is documenting your love on your own account.

To celebrate their two-year anniversary, Rodriguez shared a slideshow of intimate photos of the pair and their blended families, along with a heartfelt tribute to Lopez.

"I can’t believe it’s been two years. Only 730 days, which have flown by, but it feels like we have been together forever. We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words."

He continued: "From baseball games, to traveling across the world to shows in Vegas. We have done it all together and every moment with you is cherished. Where this road will take us next is unknown but there is no one else I would rather have by my side. The journey is just beginning and I am excited for what’s ahead."

In his anniversary post, Rodriguez included a hilarious video of him serving a doubtful-looking Lopez eggs on Christmas morning, with the two matching in plaid PJ sets.

He went on to praise the superstar's work ethic in his emotional caption, adding: "Macha, your hard work is unmatched. Your relentless drive and determination push me to be a better man each and every day."

To conclude, he told his girlfriend, "Like you there is none other. Words will never do justice to what the last two years have meant to me," before signing it, "Te amo mucho, Lola."

Another awards show, another opportunity to catch Rodriguez doing his thing on the red carpet. The athlete captured some side shots at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, where Lopez was awarded the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. During her acceptance speech, the "Waiting for Tonight" singer gave a heartfelt shoutout to her boyfriend.

"And Alex. You’re like my twin soul. We’re like mirror images of each other," she said. "My life is sweeter and better with you in it because you make me realize that every day the sky is not the limit — the universe is infinite, and so is what we can accomplish together with love and trust and understanding. There’s so much more to do — to experience — and there is no one I’d rather do it with. You’re my macho baby and I love you."

He's Also a Master Multitasker


Is it too much to ask for someone who looks at us the way A-Rod looks at J.Lo when she's performing — and who knows to film it, too?

He Lets Lopez Review His Work

Naturally, the pair must spend some time going over his extensive camera roll together, and we're dying to be a fly on the wall for those conversations. Does he have a tendency to over-zoom, or to sneakily use the selfie cam while she thinks he's taking photos of her? Do they text photos to each other, or do they airdrop? These are the questions that keep us up at night.
