Alex Rodriguez shared a heartfelt tribute for Jennifer Lopez before their breakup announcement

The former baseball player took to his Instagram story to share an emotional tribute to his now former fiancée, just one day before the news broke that the two had officially called it quits. The longtime couple's official breakup comes just one month after they shot down reports that they had split up. And in the clip, Alex seems determined to hang on just a bit longer, panning the camera across multiple framed photos from his relationship with J.Lo, including a snap of their names drawn in a heart in the sand. His soundtrack for the wistful moment: Coldplay's Fix You. Alex and Jennifer confirmed the end of their four-year romance in a joint statement. "We have realised we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so," the duo said. "We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects." The sudden breakup surprised fans, as following the initial split speculation in March; the two seemed to be in a much better place.
