Jennifer and Ben rekindled their romance nearly two decades, going public with their relationship in April 2021, following the You can marry me star’s breakup with Alex Rodriguez.

The earlier this year, Gone GirlStar put another ring on the engagement ring. Jennifer nearly broke the Internet when she announced that she and Ben had gotten engaged for a second time via her “On The JLo” newsletter. In a video clip sent to fans in April, a teary-eyed Jennifer can be seen smiling as she proudly shows off the gorgeous, green engagement ring on her finger. Then she says, “You are perfect.”
