Alex Rodriguez Responds to Jennifer Lopez's Engagement Ring Hints in 'El Anillo'
Alex Rodriguez isn’t planning to give away proposal details anytime soon!
The 42-year-old former New York Yankees star visited The Tonight Show on Thursday, just one day after his girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez.
While there, the subject of Lopez quickly came up, mostly due to the fact that she was waiting for her athlete love backstage.
“Dude, you just had Jennifer Lopez do you makeup backstage!” host Jimmy Fallon gushed.
“Benefits, benefits,” Rodriguez quipped. “She’s really good, but you need a lot more help than Jennifer to fix this face.”
Fallon was also quick to ask him about Lopez’s pointed new song, “El Anillo,” which translates to “The Ring.” The song is about frustrated females waiting for engagement rings – a topic that Rodriguez seemed to be familiar with.
“I’m reading the piece of paper like this and it’s the song,” he said of one night in the recording studio with Lopez. “I know nothing about music. I read the song and I go, ‘Babe, it sounds like they’re talking about us.’ And she goes, ‘Yeah! They made it for me.’ I heard it for the first time and I knew it was going to be a smash the first time I heard it.”
Fallon then pressed, “Oh, it’s a giant hit, but now everyone’s probably going to ask you, where’s the ring? Where is it? Are you thinking about it?”
“I wasn’t thinking about it,” Rodriguez said, coyly adding, “When it happens, Jimmy, you’ll be the first to know!”
“No pressure!” she said. “The song is definitely about that, it is, but I felt like it was kind of something that all women get to a point where they say, ‘Ok, what’s up?’ [points to ring finger] Like, we’re good, everything’s great, what’s going on? Am I staying or am I [going]?’”
