Her love doesn't cost a thing, but her stunning engagement ring likely set back Alex Rodriguez a staggering four million dollars.

Jennifer Lopez became engaged to her former baseball playing beau on Saturday, making it her sixth proposal, fifth ring, and soon-to-be fourth marriage.

And when the happy couple took to Instagram to announce the news, people couldn't help but be in awe of her breathtaking emerald cut sparkler.

'She said yes,' wrote Alex, 43, while Jennifer, 49 simply captioned her snap with heart emojis. 

Ajay Anand of Rare Carat estimates the stunning stone to be worth around $4.5million.

'Our team of gemologists and diamond PhD's estimate the emerald-cut diamond is 20 carats and worth around $4.5 million,' he said. 'This estimate is if the stone is D-Flawless,' before adding 'since it's ARod, it very well could be.'

The happy couple were vacationing in Baker's Bay when he popped the question to his lady love of more than two years. 

Andrew Brown, President of WP Diamonds, estimated the gorgeous solitaire diamond ring to be $1million.  

'It looks to be an emerald cut around 10 carats, likely an extremely good stone—VS in color and clarity,' he told E! News.

Meanwhile, fashion expert Lauren McCawley estimates the ring to be at 15 carats, and says the ring 'could easily retail for $1 Million.'

But this isn't the first time the star has received an elaborate piece of rock, or a proposal for that matter. 

While on Carpool Karaoke With James Corden, the star admitted that she has 'had some amazing proposals.'  

'I don't want to compare one to the other. They were all pretty spectacular. They were nice.

'And then there's some that asked me to marry them and I said no. I've been married three times. I've been proposed to five times.' 

Her Saturday proposal from Alex now makes that number six.

According to Yahoo, Marc Anthony, with whom she shares twins Max and Emme, proposed to Jennifer in 2004 with an 8.5 blue diamond Harry Winston engagement ring then estimated at $4 million. 

In 2002, Ben Affleck proposed to the Love Don't Cost a Thing singer with a pink, 6.1 carat, Harry Winston engagement ring then estimated at $2.5 million, according to ABC News

It's believed that both Cris Judd, who proposed to Jennifer in 2001 with an emerald cut ring, and Ojhani Noa, who popped the question in 1997, spent six figures on their rings for the pop star.

It is not known whom she's received the sixth proposal from, which she turned down. 

She was previously in long-term relationships with former back-up dancer Casper Smart and media mogul Sean Combs.  

Meanwhile, Alex has been married only once. The former MLB star was wed  to ex-wife Cynthia Curtis from 2002-2008. The two shares daughters Ella, 10, and Natasha, 14.
