Alex Rodriguez stopped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday and of course Jimmy Fallon had to ask the announcer and ex-MLB slugger’s proposal to Jennifer Lopez that made so many headlines.
That was partially because J-Rod is the best sports couple, because Rodriguez gave her a massive engagement ring and because A-Rod was wearing his massive World Series ring at the time he was on one knee.
It turns out Rodriguez had been planning the special moment for six months and for three days before the proposal, he rehearsed “because I wanted the sunset to be perfect” by bringing his assistant with him. Fallon joked that he proposed to his assistant three times and Rodriguez just laughed, but didn’t quite answer:
Rodriguez also addressed wearing his own ring:
“I felt like for big moments … I’ve only worn this ring probably a handful of times, but I said this was a big moment. I kind of gave it away because when she saw me put on the ring, she asked, ‘Where are we going with that ring?’”
