Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are engaged!

The ‘Marry Me’ star broke the news in a short video posted to her website in which she admired her green-colored diamond accessory, whispering, “You look perfect.”

Lopez, 52, teased the video earlier on social media. In a video message titled “Major Announcement,” she said, “So I have a really exciting and special story to share,” she laughed, urging fans to head to her website for the news.

The pop singer’s first engagement ring was a 6.1-carat pink diamond worth an estimated $1.2-2.5 million.

Lopez went on to marry Marc Anthony from 2004 to 2014 and Affleck, 49, married Jennifer Garner in 2005. The couple divorced in 2018.

Lopez recently reflected on the media scrutiny the couple faced when they first started dating.

“It’s funny because Ben and I were together, and we were so in love,” the 52-year-old explained for Rolling Stone’s March 2022 issue. “It was one of the happiest times of my life. But also, there was this other thing that was going on where we were being criticized, and it really destroyed our relationship from the inside, because we were just too young to understand at that time what the most important things in life really were.”
