People: Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez engaged
Jennifer Lopez said yes to Alex Rodriguez's proposal, and with the rock he presented, who could say no?
The couple posted an Instagram photo of their hands with a massive engagement ring on Lopez's ring finger. The former Yankees shortstop captioned his photo with "she said yes" and a heart emoji.
The couple has been dating since early 2017 and later that year landed on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine with their celebrity couple nickname, J-Rod.
In January, Rodriguez told The Associated Press that he and Lopez had similar backgrounds and her latest film "Second Act" reflected the ties that drew them together.
"It really resembles a lot of the arc that Jennifer and I lived in our life: Both born in New York, both come from immigrant parents, both have two children, both Latino Americano — her from Puerto Rico, me from Dominican Republic. We've been through our ups and downs, but here we are in our 40s and trying to live the best lives possible and, at the same time, give back and pay it forward," Rodriguez said.
It will be Lopez's fourth marriage and Rodriguez's second. Each has two children from previous marriages.
Moviegoers see 'Captain Marvel' in the flesh
Moviegoers in New Jersey got a surprise visit over the weekend from a super-hero.
Actress Brie Larson, star of "Captain Marvel," appeared at a movie theater Saturday night in Clifton, N.J., about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of New York.
The North Jersey Record reports theater patrons at the AMC Theater initially didn't seem to notice Larson, who was dressed in a Captain Marvel sweat suit. But soon her appearance caused a stir, and numerous photos posted online showed her posing with fans and even serving popcorn from a concession stand.
Marvel Studios' first female-fronted superhero movie became one of the biggest blockbusters ever led by a woman during its historic opening weekend , according to studio estimates Sunday.
Jan-Michael Vincent, known for 'Airwolf,' dies
Actor Jan-Michael Vincent, the "Airwolf" television star whose sleek good looks belied a troubled personal life, has died. He was 73.
A death certificate shows that Vincent died of cardiac arrest on Feb. 10, 2019, in an Asheville, North Carolina, hospital. The certificate signed by a doctor says he died of natural causes and no autopsy was performed.
It wasn't clear why it took several weeks for news of the death to surface before it was first reported Friday by TMZ. Messages left at phone listings for Vincent and his wife weren't immediately returned Friday.
Born in 1945 in Denver, Colorado, Vincent starred in such films as 1972's "The Mechanic" and 1978's "Hooper," in which he played a stuntman opposite Burt Reynolds. Off-screen, his handsomeness earned him a spot on a cosmetic surgeon's "Ten Best Noses" list in the late 1970s.
He also starred in the 1983 television mini-series "Winds of War" as the love interest of a character played by Ali MacGraw, "piling up enormous ratings," according to a contemporary Associated Press account. He earned a Golden Globe nomination.
Today's birthdays: Actress Barbara Feldon ("Get Smart") is 86. Singer-songwriter James Taylor is 71. Actor Jon Provost (TV: "Lassie") is 69. Actress Julia Campbell ("Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion") is 56. Actor Rhys Coiro ("Hostages," ''Entourage") is 40. Actor Jaimie Alexander (TV's "Blindspot") is 35. Actress Kendall Applegate ("Desperate Housewives") is 20.
