Jennifer Lopez Announced Her Engagement To Ben Affleck
As earlier reported by The Blast, Lopez dropped the bombshell news of their engagement by releasing a video on her Facebook page, telling fans about the exciting moment Affleck popped the question!
In the video, she said, “So I have a really exciting and special story to share,” before directing her fans to her newsletter, onthejlo.com, which she calls her “personal circle,” where she shares very personal secrets and information about her life.
Affleck proposed to the multi-talented entertainer with a stunning green-hued diamond ring that was equally as pricey as the pink diamond he gave her the first time they got engaged. It was also super commendable that the actor chose the color green this time around as it’s very significant to Lopez.
The couple also notably ensured they kept their romance as private as possible in order to avoid the level of media hounding they received in their past relationship, which ultimately tore them apart.
This time around, the couple ensured that they got things right, and with the news of their marriage, it definitely looks like they did.
Ben Affleck Slammed The Media For Hounding Jennifer Lopez
Affleck recently confessed in Lopez’s new Netflix documentary “Halftime” that he was astonished by the huge amount of abuse hurled at him and the actress during the first run of their relationship.
“I said to her once, ‘Doesn’t this bother you?’. And she said, ‘I’m Latina. I’m a woman. I expected this. You just don’t expect it. You expect to be treated fairly.'”
Although Lopez claimed back then that being insulted and smeared in the tabloids did not affect her, the constant onslaught eventually wore down the pair, with them going their separate ways but remaining as close friends.
“Our relationship did suffer because of that,” Lopez said to Hello Magazine years after her break-up with her now-husband, Affleck. “That was one of the reasons. I mean, I would never blame the media for anything, but it definitely played a part in the dynamic of our relationship.”
