The former Yankee popped the question to the singer/actress/dancer while on vacation in the Bahamas. And yes, you can already bet on it.

It’s a planned merger of nicknames: J. Lo & A. Rod are engaged.

For those living under a rock, that’s Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez.

If you’re still clueless, move along. We can’t help you.

The former Yankee, 43, put a hellvua rock on the finger of singer/actress Jenny on the Block -- a possible 10-carat sparkler that may be shining brighter than the sun in the Caribbean, where they got engaged.

The pair have been dating for two years. It will be Lopez’s fourth marriage, her last being to singer Marc Anthony, and the second for Rodriguez, who divorced in 2008.

The two have long been professing their admiration and love on Instagram, including two over-gushy posts on their 2-year anniversary so, of course, that’s where they both announced their engagement. “She said yes!” A-Rod declared with a photo of the big rock on her well-manicured hand. Lopez, who is 49 years old, posted the same photo with eight heart emojis. The also posted on their Twitter accounts as well where numerous celeberities declared their congrats, including friend and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres who volunteered to be J.Lo's maid of honor.

And about as quickly as those posts got more than 1 million likes, BetOnline had posted odds on couple’s ring, wedding and future.

There’s also a scandal brewing with Radar Online, Fox News and several other celebrity publications posting stories of Rodriguez cheating on Lopez with Jessica Canseco, the ex-wife of slugger Jose Canseco. Sigh.

Here’s what you can place a wager on at BetOnline:

J. Lo/A. Rod - Cost of Marriage Ring

  • Over 2 million dollars -120
  • Under 2 million dollars -120

Our Pick: Obviously clarity counts, but from what we see, he went OVER.

J. Lo/A. Rod - First baby

  • Female -150
  • Male +120
  • Twins or more +1000

Our Pick: Sorry to be a Debby Downer, but we think the baby train has left the station. Between the two of them there are four happy, well-adjusted children. Of course, they could add to their full house and adopt (pick me, pick me!).

J. Lo/A. Rod - Marriage Date

  • On/before March 9, 2020 -300
  • After March 9th 2020 +200

Our Pick: It will be well planned, but we don’t think it will be a year-long engagement. She is scheduled to go on tour June 7 through July 26, for planning purposes.

J. Lo/A.Rod - 1st Letter of 1st Baby's Name

  • Consonant -120
  • Vowel -120

Our Pick: Again, we think this bet is moot.

J. Lo/A.Rod - Wedding Destination

  • California +150
  • New York +175
  • Any Other US State or Territory +275
  • Any Other Country +300
  • Florida +750

Our Pick: Our money is on Florida … though they have homes in several states. But Florida is lovely in late fall, just sayin’.

J. Lo/A.Rod - Weight of First Baby

  • Over 8.2 pounds -120
  • Under 8.2 pound -120

Our Pick: Again, moot.

J. Lo/A.Rod Color of J. Lo's Dress

  • White -1000
  • Any Other Color +500

Our Pick: Whatever she wears it will be stunning ... but white might be off the table. We’re going with any other color – possibly a pale pink.

It does seem as if it is a match made in “beautiful people” heaven, and it’s certainly help A. Rod refurbish is reputation and popularity. The 14-time Yankee all-star was suspended for all of the 2014 baseball season for violating the MLB’s performance-enhancing drugs policy. He says it cost him his reputation, $40 million and possibly his chance to get into the Hall of Fame.

But in the arms of J. Lo, A. Rod appears to be back in style.
