18 years after calling off their wedding, Hollywood stars got engaged again

New York: It’s a Hollywood fairy tale for the ages.

Nearly 18 years after calling off their wedding, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have gotten engaged again and are considering getting married, finally.

Lopez, 52, a singer, actress and dancer, teased the “exciting and special” announcement on her Facebook and Instagram page, after which she shared an email with those around her.

Lopez then shared a message for fans on her website which included a clip of her admiring a huge green diamond on her ring finger.

She had written about the importance of the color green in her life in a newsletter a few years ago.

“I always say the color green is my lucky color. I realized there were many times in my life when amazing things happened when I wore green,” she wrote. .

JLo, as her fans affectionately call her, and Affleck, 49, started dating after working in the 2003 film “Gigli”. They got engaged in November 2002, but broke up in early 2004.

While Lopez married singer Marc Anthony in June 2004 and had twins Max and Emme in 2008, Affleck married actress Jennifer Garner in 2005 and had three children together.

Affleck, who divorced Garner in 2018, reconciled with Lopez in May 2021 following the pop star’s split from Alex Rodriguez.
