The Maid in Manhattan actress met her now-fiancé back in 2005 at Shea Stadium when the Yankees played the New York Mets. It wasn't until the winter of 2016 that the couple became romantically linked.

Speaking of their relationship in December, Lopez told USA Today: 'Everyone wants a fairy tale. They all want a romantic comedy, a happy ending. We all do. But it's not a movie, even if you see us on Instagram or on the shows.'

She continued: 'We're happy. We're taking it day by day. And it's great.'

Congrats to the happy couple!!
