Barack Obama sent a handwritten letter of congratulations to J-Rod

Jennifer Lopez visits a studio in Long Island

Here are some photos of Alex Rodriguez & Jennifer Lopez out and about in New York all of this week. They stepped out a few times together, but mostly they’ve been doing separate pap strolls. Jennifer has been showing off her assorted Birkin bags too, which of course I love, even though I know Birkins are now sort of “over” because they’re used by Real Housewives and Kardashians. I also adore A-Rod’s man-bag in that photo too – I would love that as an overnight bag, but I bet it costs $50K.

Even though J-Rod hasn’t done a million “engagement pap stroll” photos in New York, I still believe in them. I believe that they’re going to make it down the aisle and that they’re somewhat well-suited for each other. Guess who else believes that? Barack Obama!! Barry O sent J-Rod a handwritten letter congratulating them on their engagement, and A-Rod posted it on social media:

It’s been a while since I’ve seen Obama’s handwriting and GOD I MISSED IT. I also didn’t realize that Obama and A-Rod were friends? Jennifer knows the Obamas, and she was politically active (as a donor/fundraiser/Latina activist) during the Obama administration too. But A-Rod? Hm. As for whether it’s inappropriate to post a private message from the former president… I mean, I would brag about it too. If Barry O sent me a handwritten letter, I would post that sh-t all over social media too.

    Miss him so much. Obama is thoughtful and has good manners. I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t complain that a dead guy didn’t thank him for a funeral.

      +1. This has got to be the tackiest president we’ve ever had, on top of everything else.

    I can’t wait for this wedding! Will it be lowkey or will it reach Priyanka and Nick levels?

    How often does Obama send a personal handwritten letter? I too would post the shit out of that. But to congratulate these two on their engagement? and I love the bags. Wish I could afford them.

    A handwritten note, on your own personal stationary. He’s such a classy guy and I miss him so much.

    I miss my Obamas. I want Michelle to run for prez. But Barry was always a bit of a starf**ker, imho lol.

    There have been plenty of people that has posted notes and letters they have received from POTUS’s and FLOTUS’s in the past.

    As long as it is not top secret information, eh.

    If I received one, I would brag about it too.

    Why is everyone making such a big deal over this engagement. She’s been married three times and engaged 4 times.
    That’s A LOT of times.
