Will Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez get engaged over the holidays?

I don’t have a Magic 8-Ball for relationships (and I wish I had for some of the ones I previously got entrenched in), but if I did and I asked “Are there wedding bells in the future for Lo-Rez?,” I think the ball would say “Signs point to yes.”

When we last checked in on the happy couple, the 48-year-old singer and her 42-year-old beau were celebrating Thanksgiving together in the Hamptons with their blended family. They’ve only been together for nine months, but it seems like longer for some reason. According to PEOPLE Magazine, Jennifer may be getting a big ol’ diamond engagement ring for Christmas.

A source told the magazine that the couple’s kids – Jennifer’s twins Max and Emma and Alex’s daughters Natasha and Ella – want their parents to go full Brady Bunch and walk down the aisle, but the source added “There are definitely talks about getting married, but Jennifer is old-school and will wait for the engagement ring before she entertains any wedding talk.”

The magazine went on to report that Alex and Jennifer “are very happy that all the kids get along and have accepted their new family.” And the pair are still as ga-ga for each other as ever. Alex “smiles any time marriage comes up” and Jennifer “feels Alex is her true soulmate and can’t believe how happy she is with him.”

The two also apparently share a love of music. On Tuesday night, they caught a performance of Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway show and shared pictures taken backstage with the rock legend. Jennifer captioned her shot of the trio, “Baby we were BORN to RUN… #theboss#when1plus1equals3#brucespringsteen.” Alex also had a fangirl moment with Bruce, calling him “one of the all time greats” and an “American treasure”. Side note: Bruce Springsteen is 68 and, yes, I still would.

While in New York, Alex visited Jennifer on the set of her upcoming movie Second Act and posted a clip of with herand co-star Vanessa Hudgens in front of a Christmas tree, adding the caption, “So much fun visiting the set of #SecondAct. Can’t wait to see this movie. @jlo @vanessahudgens #nyc #212 #happyholidays.”

So, will Alex pop the question soon? All of the boxes leading up to an engagement seemed to have been checked off. They’ve successfully gotten their families together, back in October they were reportedly looking for an apartment together and they have already shared a Vanity Fair cover. Marriage can’t possibly be that far off. And, the Christmas holiday is a great time to make it legal – what with all of the twinkling lights, festive decorations and holiday spirit, not to mention it’s a great way for guys to remember when their anniversary is (you know who you are). I know it’s kind of quick, but I think they make for a good couple, so why not? Life’s short, so find your happiness, grab hold of it and don’t let go (and if you get a nice ring in the process, more power to you).

Good times. Even better company. From our families to yours, have a safe and festive holiday season.

    For some reason I adore JLo. I guess, to me, she has her head on straight, is a great business woman, doesn’t make excuses and has a good grip on her life. BUT her taste in men….UGH, I guess you can’t have it together for everything.

    • Lizzie says:

      JLo is a huge billboard for how unattainable “having it all” really is. i also adore her – she is such a savvy business woman, she’s beautiful and seems like a loyal friend and family member who adores her children but man these men. she must be the most love blind dickmatized woman on earth.

    “but if I did and I asked “Are there wedding bells in the future for Lo-Rez?,” I think the ball would say “Signs point to yes.” ”

    Has she ever dated without an engagement?

    • smcollins says:

      I think that Casper guy might be the only one and Ben the only one she was only ever engaged to. She married all the others, didn’t she?

      • Jayna says:

        Casper probably proposed and she said no. Ben was only days away from their wedding when he cancelled.

  3. Azureskies says:

    She spit at a journalist. He’ll be marrying a rude one.

  4. Rosalee says:

    I like him, they make a great couple..Vanity Fair’s description of their similarities in their backgrounds, drive and personalities. It sounds snappy but they are a far better fit together then her past relationships with Affleck, the skinny dude, the unknown waiter and Casper.

  5. Izzy says:

    “Jennifer is old-school and will wait for the engagement ring before she entertains any wedding talk.”

    Bull. I worked at Barnes & Noble in South Florida when she and Marc Anthony got together. They came into the store one day with a gaggle of security guards and she bought three books on wedding planning. There was no ring then. So, please.

    • Tiffany says:

      Did they have a engagement though. She went straight from things ending with Douchefleck to a backyard wedding to Marc. They did not play around.

    ui, his springsteen pic…anybody see what i see?

  7. Chrissy says:

    Well you know what they say: Maybe the fourth time is the charm.

    • babykitten says:

      I have a cousin who figured out after her third divorce that maybe she just wasn’t good at being married. And she wasn’t the problem – the first one abused her and the next two cheated.

  8. minx says:

    Her PR tries to put forward that she’s always still Jenny from the Block, but she just seems extremely high maintenance. And him, yuk.

  9. babykitten says:

    I really can’t stand when men propose at Christmas.

  10. Mar says:

    Trust me he’s a major a- hole. I know people that have dealt with him .I really feel like this is an opportunity for him to be in headlines. He loves this.

  11. Donna says:

    It’s a love for the ages, y’all! (Insert rude snicker) It’s JLo – of course they’ll get married. And, of course, they’ll divorce. It’s a no-brainer.

  12. monette says:

    J-lo Iove u, but chica don’t!!You’ve been married 3 times!! It hasn’t been a year yet of dating this douchebag.
    Just wait a couple more years, let the lust wear off.
    He has kids, u have kids, why the rush??

  13. LittlefishMom says:

    Oh my goodness NO. This chick with the weddings. *eyeroll

  14. Jayna says:

    Yes, they will. Bring on a big Jennifer Lopez wedding production.

    I think they make a great couple for where they are in their lives. But by ten years in, he will have started cheating. Will she ignore it, pretend he hasn’t and stay married, or move on? That’s the question for 2028.

    • Chrissy says:

      10 years? I’d give it two years at the most. I think she gets bored easily and then she will eventually start looking her age and his eye will start to wonder. Her poor kids…..

  15. Astrid says:

    Those are some uncomfortable looking pictures

  16. African Sun says:

    I hope he proposes. I like Jennifer and I want to see her win and to see her happy.

    Her taste in men isn’t great, because I think she’s a wonderful example of being successful and I am very happy for her success as a visible Latina celebrity as well.

    Come on Alex!

  17. AMA1977 says:

    What’s with the turtleneck under a suit? It’s not a good look for anyone, but especially not someone with A-Rod’s build.

    Godspeed, J-Lo. I’m sure they will get engaged, and they will make it down the aisle, and she will look AMAZING, and I hope it doesn’t end in a massive train wreck. I respect her hustle, her discipline, and her work ethic, and I think she’s jaw-droppingly gorgeous. He seems like a sleazy creep, but I could be wrong. At least he has his own money, which is a step up from hideous moocher Casper.

  18. NGBoston says:

    I would really like to see Jennifer happily married once as well but A-Rod is a serial cheater who likes his professional escorts and “fitness models” wayyyy too much.

    They both better have iron clad pre-nups bc JLo has worked to hard to turn over half of what she has built to a man who has his own.

    I do not see this lasting, it is he tagging along now that he is retired to stay in front of thr cameras bc the NY Yankees Org will
    never hire him again.
