Alex Rodriguez ended his Major League Baseball career with 696 home runs.
But the polarizing third basement saved his biggest swing for Saturday night...
... when he aimed for the fences with Jennifer Lopez and connected!
On an agreement to become husband and wife!
That's right, readers, Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are engaged! To be married!
Both superstars shared the enormous news at the same time posing a photo of the gigantic rock Rodriguez gifted to Lopez on Instagram.
“She said yes,” captioned the image, which featured the diamond on his bride-to-be's finger, while J. Lo published the same snapshot along with including eight black heart emojis in her caption.
Prepare yourselves to be blown away -- but here's an up-close look at the rock in question:
According to a People Magazine insider, Rodriguez popped the life-altering question during a vacation in the Bahamas.
He also did so after posted a quote on his Instagram Story defining a soulmate.
It reads as follows:
A soulmate isn’t someone who completes you. No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to complete yourself.
A soulmate is someone who loves you with so much conviction, and so much heart, that it is nearly impossible to doubt just how capable you are of becoming exactly who you have always wanted to be.
Who knew Alex Rodriguez was such a romantic, huh?
The happy news comes nearly seven weeks after the couple celebrated its two-year anniversary on February 3.
Back when they first got together, most observers assumed this would be a mere fling between two very rich and attractive people with an extensive dating history.
But they actually have proven to support each other at all times in public and the feelings have seemed quite real for awhile now.
“You make my world a more beautiful safe and stable place … in the midst of our ever-changing, ever moving life,” Lopez wrote in part of a touching Instagram post to celebrate the two-year mark.
Added Rodriguez in his own message at the time:
"We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words."
Rodriguez was previously married to Cynthia Scurtis.
They divorced in 2008 after six years of marriage and share two kids, Natasha, 14, and Ella, 10.
Lopez, meanwhile, was previously married to Ojani Noa, Chris Judd AND Marc Anthony. She shares twins Max and Emme, 11, with Anthony, who she divorced in 2014.
Yes, that's three marriages -- but Lopez has said in the past she would still be open to a fourth.
“I do believe in marriage,” she told Harper's Bazaar a year ago. “And I would love to grow old with somebody in a committed relationship.
"But I’m not forcing anything right now.”
As for A. Rod? She told this same magazine in this same interview:
"It’s good, it’s healthy; we communicate well. We understand each other’s lives in a way that most other people couldn’t."
CONGRATS TO THE HAPPY COUPLE!
Jenelle Evans ... why is she the way that she is?
We know all about her history -- her troubled childhood, her teen pregnancy, her drug use and so on.
But still, you'd think that at some point she would learn not to do certain things, or at least not to do them in front of her nearly three million followers on Instagram.
Unfortunately, that's just not the case.
It's looking like Jenelle will never, ever learn.
And it's also looking like her kids are suffering for it.

Boy, the Kardashian family sure has been on a roller coaster ride lately, huh?
This makes all the Kanye stuff with Trump seem like … well, no, never mind, that was still awful.
Still, this whole mess with Tristan Thompson definitely hasn’t been great.
Honestly, Tristan hasn’t been doing the family any favors since he first came around a couple of years ago, what with the whole thing about him having an ex pregnant with his child when he got with Khloe.
Lots of people thought that something shady happened there, that there was some overlap and that Khloe was basically a homewrecker.
When she got pregnant, there was some speculation that Tristan would do the same thing to her that he did with his ex.
And did he ever.
He didn’t leave Khloe for another woman, but he definitely saw other women at least twice during her pregnancy.
She decided to stay with him and try to make things work, and that lasted for nearly a year.
Then reports started coming out about how Tristan had hooked up with Jordyn Woods, Kylie’s best friend, and Khloe had finally had enough.
There’s some confusion about what actually happened between Tristan and Jordyn — some say they were “all over each other” at a party, and others have said that they’ve actually been sneaking around together for a while now.
Jordyn herself has insisted that he simply kissed her on the lips and that was all.
Whatever happened, it was enough for Khloe to finally kick Tristan to the curb, and good for her.
But is no one thinking about Kylie during this difficult time?!
She and Jordyn have been friends for years, and they were so close that Jordyn lived in her house.
She’s since moved out, and recent reports have claimed that Kylie is taking it pretty hard.
According to one, this has been “much more difficult” on Kylie because “she has basically lose part of her world.”
“She is very, very upset. She always trusted Jordyn with everything.”
“Kylie just can’t make sense of what happened,” the report continued. “She still has so many questions for Jordyn.”
“Who knows when Kylie will get over this.”
Thankfully, it seems like she’s working towards that now.
According to a source who spoke with People, “Their friendship is not 100% over.”
“Although she doesn’t live at Kylie’s Jordyn still has things there.”
“She and Kylie aren’t socializing,” the source explained, ” but are in contact. They are texting each other.”
And while that’s a step in the right direction, “It’s still a tricky situation for Kylie.”
“And no one is actually putting too much pressure on her. Her family is aware that she is in contact with Jordyn.”
“They are letting Kylie figure things out for herself,” the source concludes.
It definitely is a tricky situation, and really things could play out either way.
It would make sense if Kylie couldn’t get past this, because it is a super weird situation and the Kardashian-Jenner sisters are known for being very tight.
But it would also make sense if they talked everything out and dedicated some time and effort to rebuild their friendship, because they have been so close for so long.
You also have to consider that Kylie is going through some relationship drama of her own with Travis Scott, so it would probably be nice for her to have the support of her friend.
Whatever happens, we can all agree that Tristan is just absolute trash, right?
