    Barack Obama Wrote A Hand-Written Letter To Alex Rodriguez And Jennifer Lopez After Their Engagement

    "Michelle and I just wanted to congratulate you..."

    A few weeks ago, Alex Rodriguez proposed to Jennifer Lopez, and provided the world with this gorgeous engagement photo:

    And if I were A. Rod and J. Lo right about now, I'd be thinking, "There is really no way life could get better than this!" I mean, this is the ring:

    But just when I thought they'd reached peak happiness, A. Rod shared this meaningful note that the couple received from President Barack Obama:

    It's on the official Barack Obama stationery, so you know it's legit. And while I would have personally loved if our 44th president called them J. Lo and A. Rod, I get why he went with Jennifer and Alex:

    "Michelle and I just wanted to congratulate you on your engagement. After 26 years together, we can say that whatever challenges life may bring, sharing them with someone you love makes it all better."

    Just last month, Michelle and J. Lo graced the stage together at the Grammy Awards:

    And here's my favorite set of photos of A. Rod and Obama, back in 2009:

    Basically, what I'm saying is, I'm wishing and hoping that the Obamas make an appearance at what's destined to be the biggest celeb wedding of the year.
