Over the weekend, the 52-year-old songstress revealed her 49-year-old beau had proposed to her almost 20 years after their first engagement. Now, in an exclusive e-newsletter to fans, she has revealed how the romantic moment went down.
“Did you ever imagine your biggest dream could come true?” Lopez’s message begins in ‘On The J.Lo.’
Lopez revealed the proposal occurred on Saturday night, while she was in her “favourite place on Earth” — the bubble bath — and her “beautiful love got on one knee and proposed.”
“I was taken totally off guard and just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time, trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again, I was quite literally speechless,” she wrote.
“And he said, ‘Is that a yes?’ I said ‘YES of course that’s a YES.'”
The Marry Me star revealed she was “smiling so big” and there were “tears coming down [her] face,” saying she felt “so incredibly happy and whole.”
“It was nothing fancy at all, but it was the most romantic thing I could’ve ever imagined… just a quiet Saturday night at home, two people promising to always be there for each other,” she writes.
“Two very lucky people. Who got a second chance at true love.”
Affleck proposed with a sparkling — and sizeable — green diamond, set on a silver band.
Lopez ended her message to her fans with a comment on the ring, writing, “Green has always been my lucky colour and now, for sure, it always will be.”
The couple, who are also known by their nickname ‘Bennifer,’ rekindled their romance in April 2021.
Lopez and Affleck previously dated in 2002, getting engaged in November of that year before calling off the wedding just days before Lopez was set to walk down the aisle in September 2003. They ultimately called it quits in January 2004, before their reunion almost two decades later.
