The duo recently got engaged after getting together in 2021. They were previously engaged and set to be married in 2002; however, they called the wedding off and ended things in 2004.

Lopez continued, “I love the idea of the future and what we can create. But I really just want to savor the moment and stay real present in it as much as I can.” The post was captioned, “Happy Father’s Day to the most caring, loving, affectionate, consistent and selfless Daddy ever.”
The Two Are Engaged, For The Second Time
Earlier this year, Lopez revealed that she and Affleck were engaged. She announced the news via her “On the JLo” newsletter in April and gave her readers a detailed explanation of how the “The Accountant” star proposed to her.
She wrote, “Did you ever imagine your biggest dream could come true? Saturday night, while at my favorite place on earth (in the bubble bath), my beautiful love got on one knee and proposed. I was totally taken off guard and just looked in his eyes, smiling and crying at the same time.”
Lopez revealed that she said yes and that the moment while being “nothing fancy,” was the most romantic thing she had ever imagined. The 52-year-old also mentioned her green engagement ring, calling the color her lucky color. She concluded, “Two very lucky people. Who got a second chance at true love.”
Ben Affleck & Mat Damon Are Working On A New Film
Affleck and Damon are currently on set, working on their newest film about Nike’s attempts to make Jordan wear the company’s shoes. In addition to his role as writer and director, the “Justice League” actor will reportedly star as the co-founder of Nike and former CEO Phil Knight.
Damon, on his part, will play Sonny Vaccaro, an executive from Nike who eventually succeeds in getting Jordan to sign his first deal with the famous shoe company despite their more established competitors’ offers.
Alex Coventry will join the duo in writing. Damon was previously spotted wearing his custom, so it’s assumed he has already started filming his scenes. Affleck, on the other, is mainly seen dressing casually, suggesting that the director was currently focused on directing scenes that he isn’t a part of.
