Barack Obama writes to Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez on engagement

ABC/Kelsey McNeal(NEW YORK) — Everyone was excited after one of Hollywood’s favorite couples, Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez, made it official earlier this month and got engaged.

And “everyone” even included former President Barack Obama.

Obama sent a handwritten note to the couple, which the former MLB champion shared on Twitter early Friday morning.

This means the world to us.

“This means the world to us,” the former New York Yankee wrote.

In the card, Obama penned some advice about facing whatever challenges life brings with someone you love.

A-Rod broke the news of the engagement two weeks ago on Instagram, sharing a picture of Lopez’s ring with the caption, “She said yes.”

J.Lo posted the same shot on her Instagram account for her 88 million followers to see.

The actress and retired New York Yankees legend began dating last winter and made their red carpet debut at the Met Gala later that year. They seem to have been inseparable ever since.
