Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are engaged again

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are busy, engaged – once again!

Lopez announced the engagement in a short video via her fan newsletter On The JLo, in which she gazes in awe at a green-hued diamond ring.

“You’re perfect,” Lopez says in a voiceover while romantic music plays

Lopez teased the “exciting and special” announcement on Facebook early Friday evening.

Sources close to the singer say the video is actually an engagement announcement.

Lopez, 52, and Affleck, 49, sparked engagement rumors earlier this week when she was photographed with a ring on her wedding finger while shopping in LA with 14-year-old daughter Emme.

Insiders close to Affleck recently told Page Six they wouldn’t be shocked if he’d proposed again.

The couple first started dating in 2002 and were quickly dubbed “Bennifer” by fans and the media. The two certainly didn’t shy away from showing their love for one another back then, including in PDA-loaded scenes from Lopez’s music video “Jenny From the Block.”

Lopez had tears in her eyes as she admired the “perfect” ring.

In November of the same year, Affleck proposed to Lopez a 6.1 carat pink diamond by Harry Winston. The massive sparkler is said to have cost $2.5 million.

Lopez addressed her first engagement during a meeting with Diane Sawyer in the 2000s, where she described her fiancé as “brilliantly smart, loving, charming, and loving.”

She went on to call her stunning ring “the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen.”

Unfortunately, the massive media attention led to the couple postponing and eventually calling off their 2003 wedding.

“Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date,” the couple said in a joint statement. “When we seriously considered hiring three separate ‘decoy brides’ in three different locations, we realized something was wrong.”

The statement continued, “We were beginning to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives might be compromised. We felt that a joyful and holy day for us, our families and our friends could be spoiled.”

The couple rekindled their romance in 2021.

Lopez called off their engagement in early 2004 and was married to singer Marc Anthony in June of that year. The couple welcomed twins Max and Emme in 2008.

Meanwhile, Affleck moved on with Jennifer Garner. He married the actress in 2005 and welcomed three children together: daughters Violet and Seraphina and son Samuel.

However, both marriages ended in divorce, and Lopez entered into another Whirlwind romance starring Alex Rodriguez in 2017.

For his part, Affleck has been linked to a number of women, including Knives Out star Ana De Armas until their separation in January 2021.

Shortly after Lopez’s split from A-Rod, Affleck dived in quickly and reconnected with the singer. The couple – who just fell $50 million for a mansion in Bel Air – have been strong ever since.

“I don’t think anyone was more surprised than us.” admitted the “Marry Me” star on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in February. “You never imagined that something like this could happen. It’s a beautiful thing.”
