Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have a second chance at love
Jennifer Lopez has shared that she feels blessed to have a second chance at love. While promoting her romantic comedy, Marry Me, she told People, “I feel so lucky and happy and proud to be with him.” She continued with gratitude, “It’s a beautiful love story that we got a second chance.”
Jennifer and Ben dated from 2002 to 2004 after meeting on the set of Gigli; the two were affectionately known as Bennifer.
Ben proposed to Jennifer with a pink diamond, but the two called off the wedding in 2003 and ended the engagement in 2004. Last spring, rumors of rekindling swirled after the two were spotted together. Ben and Jen all but confirmed the rumors when the actor was spotted celebrating her birthday on a yacht.
Ben proposed to Jen again last month, and this time he opted for a green ring. JLo told fans through her On The JLo newsletter that Ben Affleck proposed to her at home while she was taking a bath. She shared that her unique engagement ring carries a lot of importance to her.
Fans want to see Bennifer go the distance this time and finally make it down the aisle.
