Jennifer Lopez gives bubbly deets on Ben Affleck's "nothing fancy" proposal
Los Angeles, California - Jennifer Lopez shared the details on how Ben Affleck proposed and talked about the couple's "second chance at true love."
The two superstars, singer and actor Jennifer Lopez (52) and actor Ben Affleck (49), were first engaged back in 2002. But they called the whole thing off in January 2004.
In her newsletter's newest edition, Jen shared more juicy details about the proposal.
"Saturday night while at my favorite place on earth (in the bubble bath), my beautiful love got on one knee and proposed," the Marry Me star said. "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:"
She also shared more pictures of her engagement ring, writing, "Green has always been my lucky color and now, for sure, it always will be."
Last time Ben proposed, he presented JLo with a 6.1-carat pink diamond ring.
"Did you ever imagine your biggest dream could come true?" Jenny from the Block said.
When Ben proposed Jen felt "so incredibly happy and whole"
Jen further explained her shock over the low-key proposal.
"I was quite literally speechless and he said, 'Is that a yes?' I said, 'YES of course that's a YES,'" she wrote in her newsletter.
"I was smiling so big and tears were coming down my face, feeling 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," Jen gushed.
Recently, Jen told People that the two's relationship is very different from what it was almost twenty decades ago. The celebrities are older, wiser, and now after more years in the public eye, they each know who they are.
She wrapped up her proposal tale by writing, "Two very lucky people. Who got a second chance at true love."
Hopefully, engagement number two will give a second chance at a dream wedding, too.
