Re-engaged with Ben Affleck
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck re-engage!
Lopez revealed the news in a video posted to her fan newsletter, On The JLo, in which she admires a green diamond ring.
An earlier Facebook post teased the “exciting and special” announcement.
Earlier this week, Lopez, 52, was photographed with a ring on her wedding finger while shopping in Los Angeles with her 14-year-old daughter Emme.
Affleck's friends told Page Six they wouldn't be surprised if he proposed again.
Fans and media dubbed the couple “Bennifer” after they started dating in 2002. They weren't shy about showing their affection for each other, as seen in Lopez's "Jenny From the Block" music video.
By November, Affleck had proposed to Lopez with a 6.1-carat pink Harry Winston diamond. The $2.5 million sparkler reportedly cost.
In an interview with Diane Sawyer in the 2000s, Lopez described her fiance as “brilliantly smart, loving, charming and affectionate.”
It was “the most magnificent thing I've ever seen,” she said.
Due to the media's attention, the couple had to postpone and eventually cancel their 2003 wedding.
“We have decided to postpone the date due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding,” the couple said.
Our spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives began to be compromised,” the statement continued. We feared ruining a joyful and sacred day for ourselves, our families, and friends”
Both marriages ended in divorce, but Lopez rekindled her romance with Alex Rodriguez in 2017.
Until January 2021, Affleck was linked to several women, including “Knives Out” star Ana De Armas.
