Back in January 2004, fans were shook to find out that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck had called off their engagement. But nearly 18 years later, it seems like all is finally right in the world because once again, Affleck put a ring on that finger! Here's all the tea about the romantic proposal.

The Marry Me star revealed on her JLO Newsletter the scoop on what went down that night. "Did you ever imagine your biggest dream could come true?" she started, "Saturday night, while at my favorite place on earth (in the bubble bath), my beautiful love got on one knee and proposed. I was taken totally off guard and 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." How romantic!

J.Lo gushed about how excited she was: "I was smiling so big, and tears were coming down my face, feeling so incredibly happy and whole. It was nothing fancy at all, but it was the most romantic thing I could've ever imagined... just a quiet Saturday night at home, two people promising to always be there for each other." After all, the star is used to all the glitz and glam that an intimate night at home with her love was probably all she ever wanted. The singer finished off her announcement by saying how great it is the two finally reconnected after so much time apart. "Two very lucky people. Who got a second chance at true love." Recently she shared with People what she thought of their rekindled love. "We're older now, we're smarter, we have more experience, we're at different places in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things," she noted.

Affleck bought Lopez a giant green rock, which of course, is her favorite color! "Green has always been my lucky color, and now, for sure, it always will be," she wrote on her website. We can't lie, that's pretty adorable. Congrats to the happy couple! We can't wait to see what an extravagant (or maybe not..?) wedding they'll have. Stay tuned for updates.
