Days after rumors were rampant that the rekindled couple were on their way to wedding, Lopez, 52, confirmed the news on Friday in an email. People confirms a glowing, makeup-free Lopez says in a video to fans, "So I have a really exciting and special story to share..." before directing them to her OnTheJLo.com site.
There, she included a clip of herself looking at a giant green diamond on her ring finger and cooing, "You're perfect!"
Doubling down, she added a ring emoji to her Twitter handle.
Page Six reports Lopez's diamond ring could be worth more than eight figures. Diamond Pro CEO Mike Fried told the outlet, "A green diamond of that size is incredibly rare and would dwarf the value of their previous engagement ring. I would value the ring well over $5 million and could be worth more than $10 million.”
Diamond expert Zack Stone of Steven Stone jewelers believes her ring underwent special treatments to turn green. He told Elle, "With an incredibly vivid color, it looks like it could be a natural green diamond that’s been enhanced using HPHT temperature treatment, which is a well known method to change the color of a diamond.”
Lopez recently discussed the significance of green in a previous newsletter. Along with referencing her iconic Versace dress, she wrote, "I always say the color green is my lucky color... Maybe you can remember a certain green dress. I’ve realized there are many moments in my life where amazing things happened when I was wearing green.”
She also purchased art that features the color green. She said, "I don’t buy a lot of art, but I bought this. One because I love hummingbirds, and two because I love the color green. Birds always fly around me. I’ve always had a special connection with hummingbirds. I realized that a lot of people say they symbolize love. So whenever it feels like wherever I go, they follow me. Whenever I am in a moment of doubt and confusion, one will magically appear by my window, reminding me that the universe will always speak to us if we are open to the signs.”
J.Lo and Affleck, who is 49, were engaged in 2004, but called it off.
She is the mother of 14-year-old twins Emme and Max with ex Marc Anthony, while Affleck has three children with ex Jennifer Garner: Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10.
