Lopez’s rep confirms to PEOPLE that the couple, who rekindled their romance last year, are engaged.
Lopez announced the news in her “On the JLo” newsletter days after being photographed wearing an engagement ring. She told her inner circle about the exciting news on Friday night.
The message to fans included a clip of Lopez admiring a huge, green diamond on her ring finger, an image of which was also shared by her sister on social media. That same night, Lopez teased the “major announcement” with a video on Twitter.
So I have a really exciting and special story to share, “Lopez told her followers.
” She also added a diamond ring emoji to her Twitter handle.
Lopez and Affleck previously began dating in July 2002 and got engaged in November before postponing their September 2003 wedding just days before the date.
