Former MLB star Alex Rodriguez revealed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that he prepared for his proposal to Jennifer Lopez by rehearsing with his assistant Ashley for three straight days prior to popping the question in March:

It shouldn't be too surprising that Rodriguez prepared to the point of timing the sunset to the minute and using a stand-in for Lopez prior to the actual proposal. He was known for having one of the best work ethics in the game during his time in the bigs, which lasted 22 seasons.

Lopez told People that the couple, which has been dating for over two years, is "really happy."

"We have [an] appreciation for where we are in our lives today, and that's what we're enjoying the most," Rodriguez said.

The couple has to plan for a wedding, but they also have other ventures lined up.

Of note, Lopez, who saw four singles hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts, will take part in a new movie called Hustlers, set to be released on Sept. 13. She's also receiving the CFDA Fashion Icon award.

Rodriguez works as an ESPN Sunday Night Baseball color commentator and also makes appearances as an in-studio analyst for Fox broadcasts. He also founded the A-Rod Corp.
