It seems that 17 years after their split, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are more than ready to give their romance another chance, and once more, the world is watching.
And fans should not be surprised if Lopez is seen with a massive engagement ring sooner than later because she still has the stunning pink-colored diamond bling that Affleck gave her 18 years ago.
Last time around, the power couple ended their engagement because of the media’s pressure. However, for the new version of Bennifer, the couple has decided to use the media to their advantage.
On Friday, Lopez took to Instagram to say that the album This Is Me…Then, she dropped 19 years ago, is her favorite one, and fans were quick to point to the obvious — it has a song about Ben Affleck on it called “Dear Ben.”
The diva shared a video montage that included scenes from visuals from the album, and she made sure to include the famous red bikini scene that featured Ben Affleck.
Lopez wrote: “All of my albums are very special to me, but This Is Me…Then is my favorite album I’ve ever done…so far! I know a lot of you have heard me say that before, so in honor of my #JLovers helping it re-enter the album charts AGAIN after 19 years…here is a lil #TBT ✨💕 #ThisIsMeThen.”
The duo started to publicly hang out just weeks after Lopez confirmed that she had split from Alex Rodriguez.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were first spotted in Los Angeles and later on a romantic trip in Montana.
Now the Hustlers actress, 51, is busy in Miami working on a new project while Affleck is back in Los Angeles, but they are keeping in touch every day.
According to a reliable source, who spoke to PEOPLE magazine, J.Lo and Ben Affleck have intimate phone calls to stay connected and to figure out where the romance is going.
The insider said they are aware that the world is watching them and added: “They are privately trying to figure out what’s next. They are seeing where things go. [Jennifer] is in touch with Ben every day. They are making plans to see each other. Jennifer is still very excited about how things are going with Ben.”
Despite joggling her new romance and business ventures, Jennifer Lopez still found time to share a few stunning photos on Instagram wearing a skintight outfit to promote her shoe line for DSW.
Lopez flaunted her killer curves in a bright neon green catsuit with exaggerated shoulders. Via the caption, Lopez declared that she is “ready for summer.”
Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez’s former publicist, Rob Shuter, dropped the bombshell that she still has the engagement ring that Ben Affleck gave her.
Shutter said this about the ring: “As far as I know, Jen has never returned the ring! So if things move forward with these two, gosh, she’s already got the most beautiful ring I’ve seen. It’s absolutely stunning.”
He added: “It is blinding. I almost thought, forgive me, Jen, [it was fake] because it was just so large. She said, ‘Don’t touch it. It’s real.'”
Shutter claimed that Lopez believed that Affleck is the “love of her life,” and he thinks they will get back together.
