Washington, Apr 9 (EFE).- Pop diva Jennifer Lopez has announced her engagement with actor Ben Affleck almost two decades after the couple engaged earlier called it quits.
Lopez and Affleck reconnected in early 2021 after they had decided to take different personal paths.
In a brief video posted on her Twitter handle, the Puerto Rico-origin singer said she had a “very exciting and special story to share if you are not part of my inner circle.”
She said she would make it public through her personal newsletter “On the JLO,” but offered a clue by placing a green diamond ring emoji next to her name on the microblogging site.
According to People magazine, which confirmed her engagement to Affleck, the message to subscribers included another video in which the singer admired a green diamond engagement ring.
Lopez and Affleck started dating again last year after the “Jenny from the Block” hitmaker ended her engagement to former professional baseball star Alex Rodriguez.
The psychological thriller “Gone Girl” star and “Knives Out” female lead Ana de Armas ended their relationship after ten months of dating.
The couple, nicknamed “Bennifer,” has been seen on red carpets and public walks around the world, alone or accompanied by their respective children.
López had two with her ex-husband, singer Marc Anthony and Affleck had three with his ex-wife, the interpreter Jennifer Garner.
Lopez, 52, and Affleck, 49, began dating in mid-2002 and engaged that year.
They postponed the wedding and finally called it quits in 2004 before giving it a second chance. EFE
