Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are engaged!
Almost two decades after their breakup, the popstar and the actor are once again engaged. The confirmation came from the JLo newsletter on April 8. In a video message sent to her fans, a tearful Lopez showed off her gorgeous green ring, saying, “You’re perfect.”
During early 2000s, after a highly-publicized romance, the pair suddenly broke up, calling off the wedding. Following their split, the duo went on to have separate relationships, with Lopez welcoming twins Emme and Max with ex-husband Marc Anthony and Affleck had three kids—Violet, Seraphina and Samuel—with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
Anyway, Lopez and Affleck remained friends over the years. Then in May, after Lopez’s breakup with Alex Rodriguez, Jen and Ben started dating again and they also enjoyed a getaway to Montana.
Lopez and Affleck are now inseparable, even bonding with each other’s families. “Jennifer has made a big effort to get to know Ben’s kids and welcome them into her home and her life,” a source told E! News in August. “They have spent a lot of time getting to know each other and letting the kids have fun and bond.”
The insider also shared that Lopez and Affleck were embracing “fun things that they can all do together” when they both have their kids with them.
