J-Lo and A-Rod are a match made in Heaven.

The engaged couple recently spotted a Facebook post penned by Jacksboro Elementary School teacher, Brooke Goins, which spoke of a student who revealed that he often goes hungry both at home and at school. Rather than shed a quick tear and keep scrolling as most of us often do (guilty), the stars did something incredible and both the teachers and the students at the Tennessee school were incredibly moved by their gesture.

Keep scrolling to hear more about the story and to see footage of the adults' and kids' reactions to the kindness of the pair - it's heartwarming that's for sure!

JLo and Alex Rodriguez went public in 2017.

The loved up pair were both cautious about who they dated publicly and kept their relationship under wraps for some time. Speaking in the April of 2017 on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Rodriguez talked about how the pair hooked up.

JLo's a woman that gets what she wants.

Rodriguez told Ellen that, upon encountering the star: "We basically had a small chit-chat... and she says, 'You have my number, reach out.' And I went home that night and reached out." They make it seem so easy!

Rodriguez and Lopez had known each other for some time...

Way back when, in 2005, Lopez attended a New York Yankees game with her then-husband, Marc Anthony.

They were like ships passing at night.

In an adorable throwback shared by Rodriguez on Instagram earlier this year, he proved he'd had his eyes on JLo for a long while. Almost twenty years ago, a much younger Rodriquez asked JLo for her autograph. Life can indeed be funny, Alex.

Would you look at them now!

After their whirlwind romance, the pair quickly settled into each other's lives. I mean, matching PJs, come on...

Both JLo and Rodriquez have children from previous marriages.

This modern family certainly seems to be tight-knit. Jennifer Lopez has twins, Maximilian “Max" David, and Emme Maribe, from her previous marriage to Marc Anthony. Rodriguez has daughters Ella Alexander, eleven and Natasha Alexander, fourteen, from his previous marriage to a lady called Cynthia Scurtis.

It seems as if all of the kids are totally down for this romance.

There appears to be no animosity from either side, and the two families have fused into one big happy family.

I mean, who wouldn't want JLo as their step-mom?

Frankly, I think the success of this modern family is that both parties have dived in and invested in each other's children's lives.

Celebrating success with the whole family.

As this Instagram post by Rodriquez reveals, this family is a unit. When celebrating Alex's daughter, Natasha's, graduation as a Freshman, the whole family was present. It seems as though JLo and Rodriquez's ex, Cynthia, get along just fine.

The couple aren't the only ones with matching PJs...

In a sweet post on JLo's Instagram, she shared a shot of Rodriguez and her son, Max, donning matching pajama bottoms. Daddy cool, eh?

Family is really important to both JLo and Alex Rodriguez.

What first attracted JLo to the baseball star was his evident family values. Turning fifty-years-old this year, JLo was no longer interested in dating boys. The Hustlers star wanted to date a real man, someone to raise a family with.

Rodriguez's daughters are his world.

When planning the big day, both JLo and Alex Rodriguez wanted to ensure their children were involved and the day was as much about them all being a family as it was the pair getting hitched.

The couple that works out together...

...stays together, right? It seems, after both having plenty of relationship experience under their belts, this time around, they've got it just right.

The couple that swings together...

Not like that... don't be accusing me of fake news! How cute do they look on that swing though, right? And the caption! Rodriquez says that being with JLo makes him feel like a kid again *cry face emoji* - you guys.

#Familyfirst

In this sweet post from last year, Rodriguez proudly posts his beautiful modern family. We can expect now that the pair are married that this family model will continue growing from strength to strength.

In March 2019, Rodriguez put a ring on it.

Would you look at the size of that thing! I mean, I think it's safe to say that that diamond could crack a few eggs.

JLo has certainly bagged Mr. Suarve.

Not that Rodriguez - also known as A-Rod - has always had his life so together. The former baseball player turned sports presenter has had a rocky road to salvation. His first marriage to Cynthia ended in a messy divorce, with accusations that Rodriguez had extramarital affairs and had "emotionally abandoned" his wife and children. There were even rumors he had cheated on his wife with Madonna!

Back in the day, Rodriguez was quite the player...

And I'm talking about the baseball-playing kind. Young, rich, and attractive with a sea of celebrity friends... can we really blame the young sportsman for getting a bit carried away?

Rodriguez is certainly on the straight and narrow now.

At forty-four-years old, Alex Rodriguez has certainly proven that he's ready to be the committed family man. With his crush of over twenty years on his arm, it's safe to say that this is one guy that got a really lucky second chance in love.

The Obamas certainly approve of the union!

Upon announcing their engagement, Alex shared that the loved-up couple received a letter from Michelle and Barack Obama. In the heartfelt note, Barack Obama shared some of his marriage wisdom. After being married for twenty-six years he said: "Whatever challenges life may bring, sharing them with someone you love makes it all better." Oh, you guys!!

Anyway, time to prove that these two aren't only ridiculously beautiful and madly in love...

They're also total sweethearts! The couple apparently spotted a Facebook post about a child who admitted that he regularly goes hungry during a conversation about spaghetti 'os in class.

And the Facebook post was certainly moving...

via: Facebook

Teacher, Brooke Goins, wrote that she was chatting with the student about spaghetti 'os when he said: "We don’t have those at my house, but when I do have them they give me a warm belly and help me sleep." "I lost it," Goins wrote. "I cried in front of 20 little people. No kid should ever be hungry, ever."

So Brooke and her colleagues decided to help out.

"Yep, we put our money together and made sure that this sweet baby had some spaghetti o’s!,"  she wrote.

Brooke claims that she didn't post about the young boy for "attention."

"I want people to know that teachers are humans, we love your kids and want the very best for them. Some days we get frustrated and feel overwhelmed, but today we did what was best for a child. Will it show on a test score? Nope! Do we care? Nope!"

Brooke's post caught the attention of over 45,000 people.

And Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez were two of those people.

On Wednesday, J-Lo posted a video to her Insta.

via: Instagram

The video shows the lovely pair talking via video call to Brooke Goins and her class. "When we heard about the students and amazing teachers at Jacksboro Elementary in Tennessee, we knew we had to help," J-Lo wrote alongside the video. "We heard teachers were helping students bring home food when they didn't have enough." Keep scrolling to see the full video!

"Everyone should have access to delicious, nutritious food. This was my favorite moment of the month and it's one of the best things we've been able to do."

The BBC wrote that "around six million children in the US don't have regular or sufficient access to food."

It's heartwarming to know that people are doing what they can to help.

And not just people like J-Lo and A-Rod, Brooke Goins and the rest of the faculty at Jacksboro Elementary School are doing incredible things.

Brooke has hopped on Facebook since her initial post.

"We are now starting a food pantry for our students. Students will be able to get food whenever needed!," she wrote.

The internet is standing in support of Brooke and her ambitions.

We totally agree, Brittany!
