The Abacos was the choice for Alex Rodriguez to propose to Jennifer Lopez
Rodriguez obviously can take a hint. In the months leading up to his proposal, Lopez released a song titled “El Anillo,” which means “The Ring,” and she was working on a movie called Marry Me. You would think that Rodriguez would not have a problem proposing.
However, once in the Abacos, he was so nervous that as he told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, “I had the ring, but what was interesting, is the days prior to me going down on one knee and getting engaged, was I rehearsed three days in a row.”
Eventually, he got up the courage and popped the question with a gorgeous emerald cut diamond.

Other celebrities have gotten engaged or married in the Bahamas
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard liked getting married so much that they did it a second time on a soft sandy beach in the Bahamas.
According to US Weekly, “The ceremony took place in a small cove on a white sand beach, with a few dozen chairs set up on both sides of an aisle that trailed down to the altar which included the ocean as a backdrop.” Unfortunately, this union failed miserably.
