How Jennifer Garner Reportedly Reacted to Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez’s Engagement
Days ago, Jennifer Lopez announced her engagement to Ben Affleck.
It looks like Ben’s ex-wife Jennifer Garner got a heads-up before the world did!
A source told E! News, “Ben told Jen and the kids, so they knew about it.”
The insider claimed, “Jen is happy for Ben. And knows that J. Lo has been a positive influence in certain ways."
Last week, Lopez sparked engagement rumors after she was spotted wearing a huge rock while furniture shopping in Los Angeles.
The source noted that the pair wanted to “keep it private a little bit longer” before the engagement rumors kicked into overdrive.
Lopez just opened up on the intimate proposal in her website newsletter. She shared, "Saturday night while at my favorite place on earth (in the bubble bath), my beautiful love got on one knee and proposed. [I] just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again."
"I was quite literally speechless and he said, ‘Is that a yes?’ I said ‘YES of course that’s a YES,' J.Lo revealed.
Affleck popped the question with a green diamond, which could be worth eight figures. Diamond Pro CEO Mike Fried told Page Six, "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 2002, but called it off.
After their broken engagement, Affleck married Garner, the mother of his three children, Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10.
Affleck and Garner called it quits in 2015, but have remained amicable exes.
