Jennifer Lopez announces engagement with Ben Affleck
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have announced their engagement (again), and fans feel like they've stepped into a time machine.
The 52-year-old singer and actress and the 49-year-old actor originally dated back in 2002 and were engaged a year later in 2003. They postponed their wedding just days before the ceremony and due to the intense media scrutiny, the pair called it quits in 2004.
In the video, the Marry Me actress can be seen beaming at her gorgeous green-diamond ring as she said: “You’re perfect," and this clip came just days after she was photographed wearing the sparkler earlier in the week.
A representative for Lopez later confirmed the engagement to PEOPLE.
Of course, the news of Bennifer getting engaged for the second time has people contemplating whether we've actually travelled back in time to the early noughties.
Ben Affleck marrying J-Lo, Jim Carrey and Michael Bay have big movies, we're basically at war with Russia and the Republicans are running on "We hate Mickey Mouse and Gays but love fetuses!" Next year, Michael Keaton is Batman. It's a cruel joke I'm not actually getting youngerhttps://twitter.com/Variety/status/1512671441451462658\u00a0\u2026

After hearing about the latest celebrity engagement, some opted to share a more comedic take on Lopez and Affleck's betrothal - with some joking that Lopez's latest film Marry Me was giving a major hint to Affleck to pop the question.
