Alex Rodriguez Responds to Jennifer Lopez's Engagement Ring Hints in 'El Anillo' Song

By

Alex Rodriguez isn’t planning to give away proposal details anytime soon!

The 42-year-old former New York Yankees player visited The Tonight Show on Thursday, just one day after his girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, was on the late-night program.

While there, host Jimmy Fallon brought up Rodriguez's relationship with the triple-threat star, who was waiting for him backstage.

“Dude, you just had Jennifer Lopez do your makeup backstage!” Fallon quipped.

“Benefits, benefits,” Rodriguez replied. “She’s really good, but you need a lot more help than Jennifer to fix this face.”

Fallon was also quick to ask him about Lopez’s pointed new song, “El Anillo,” which translates to “The Ring.” The song is about frustrated females waiting for engagement rings – a topic that Rodriguez seemed to be familiar with.

“I’m reading the piece of paper like this and it’s the song,” he said of one night in the recording studio with Lopez. “I know nothing about music. I read the song and I go, ‘Babe, it sounds like they’re talking about us.’ And she goes, ‘Yeah! They made it for me.’ I heard it for the first time and I knew it was going to be a smash the first time I heard it.”

Fallon then pressed, “Oh, it’s a giant hit, but now everyone’s probably going to ask you, 'Where’s the ring?' Where is it? Are you thinking about it?”

“I wasn’t thinking about it,” Rodriguez said, coyly adding, “When it happens, Jimmy, you’ll be the first to know!”

 Lopez hammed it up for Rodriguez on Wednesday’s Tonight Show, talking about the new song.

“No pressure!” she said. “The song is definitely about that, it is, but I felt like it was kind of something that all women get to a point where they say, ‘OK, what’s up?’ [points to ring finger] Like, we’re good, everything’s great, what’s going on? Am I staying or am I [going]?’”

Lopez and Rodriguez recently sizzled at their second Met Gala as a couple. Here's more with the power pair:
