The news of their engagement party comes nearly six months after A-Rod got down on one knee and popped the big question. While the pair has been pretty tight-lipped about their wedding plans, earlier this month, the retired baseball star gave fans a clue about what he and his leading lady have set for their big day.

"I got one clue for y'all. One wedding clue... Are you guys ready," A-Rod teased during an appearance on Strahan, Sara and Keke. "It's gonna be a long flight."

He shared that the 50-year-old star is taking over the wedding planning, and he's letting her make the decisions. "When you think about wedding plans and Jennifer is your partner, all you do do a lot of nodding," he said on the show. "I don't know where the location is, I don't know what I'm wearing, I don't know when it is. I'll just show up."

It's only a matter of time before they exchange their vows and become husband and wife!
