Jennifer Lopez’s love life deserves all the attention it’s gotten, especially since the ageless beauty has been married more than once and shared romances with famous people. Here is a timeline of her relationship with her current lover, Ben Affleck.
After her big break with “Selena” in 1997, the actress has always served fans with her extraordinary talents, including singing, dancing, acting, directing and producing.
At 52, Jennifer Lopez remains an undeniably exceptional performer who is always sure to turn heads, even at star-studded events.

The Latino goddess who is obsessed with her fitness routine, managing to keep her toned body and ageless beauty didn’t drop below the bar when she attended the recent MTV Movie and TV awards.
Lopez, famous for her unique fashion sense that often flaunts a bit of skin, rocked a sensational outfit that was part leather, with a neckline that revealed more than cleavage.

She accepted her award and delivered the most moving speech on stage. First, the actress thanked her audience and then addressed those who never believed in her. According to Lopez:
“I want to thank the people who gave me joy. And those who broke my heart. Those who were true and those who lied to me…I want to thank all the people who said to my face or when I wasn’t in the room that I couldn’t do that.”
The ‘Hustlers’ star added that she’s grateful to the kind-hearted people in her life and the fans who have continued to show her love and appreciation.
Lopez has always been honest about her life, including her struggles and her relationships. The ‘Selena’ star has never been shy about love, no matter how many failed relationships have hit her.
Her current love interest is Ben Affleck. An old flame was rekindled with these two as they were a power couple in the early 2000s before calling it quits.
WHEN JENNIFER LOPEZ AND BEN AFFLECK GET TOGETHER AGAIN
Less than a decade after finding fame in Hollywood, the Latino beauty has become addicted to Ben Affleck. The duo fell in love after their first movie together and, a year later, got engaged.
Many were excited about the future of the “Bennifer” power couple, but their relationship didn’t go beyond an engagement. A few days before their wedding ceremony, the couple ended the romance.
Lopez married Marc Anthony, her third husband, and they shared twins. At the same time, Affleck married his co-star, Jennifer Garner. The couple also have children.
A few years later, the former couple who dated other people became single after Lopez called off her engagement to Alex Rodriguez and Affleck called him and his beau, Ana de Armas.
ARE JENNIFER LOPEZ AND BEN AFFLECK ENGAGED?
Last year, Bennifer was born again, first with the actor complimenting Lopez’s work ethic, then the duo began attending red carpet events as lovers.
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, they were proud to show their affection by publicly kissing and holding hands!
Earlier this year, they bought a luxury mansion together, and a few weeks after announcing their new property, the couple got engaged again!
Sources say the couple are genuinely happy with each other and looking forward to becoming husband and wife, with a mantra for it to work by respecting each other’s boundaries.
Lopez seemed thrilled as she made the big announcement to her fans. She shared a video revealing her admiration for the huge green rock cushioned by a band of silver.
Many will recall that their first engagement was in November 2002 and lasted almost a year. Now, it looks like they’re more than ready to take the plunge. Affleck admitted he felt lucky to have a second chance. In his words:
“I had a second chance in my career. I had a second chance as a human being…I definitely tried to take advantage of it.”
WHO WAS BEN AFFLECK MARRIED TO BEFORE JENNIFER LOPEZ?
After his split from Lopez, Affleck fell in love with Jennifer Garner, with whom he starred in “Pearl Harbor” and “Daredevil.”
In 2005, the duo got engaged and married a few months later. That same year, they welcomed their first daughter, Violet.
Seraphina Rose, the couple’s second daughter, joined the family in 2009. In 2012, their first son and last child, Samuel, was born.
After a decade in a relationship, Affleck was rumored to be involved with his children’s nanny. Although it was called “trash” by her reps, the couple announced their divorce days after their revelation.
But it wasn’t until 2017 that they started the process. While Affleck continued with other women, including Lindsay Shookus and Armas, the former couple remained committed to co-parenting their children.
