Jennifer Lopez recently reflected on her “beautiful love story” with Ben Affleck after the revival of their romance – much to the delight of Bennifer fans.
The singer told People in an article published Tuesday that she feels “so lucky and happy and proud to be with” Affleck after the two spent nearly two decades apart.
“It’s a beautiful love story that we got another chance,” she said.
Lopez and Affleck were only connected in the early 2000s. They were engaged before they broke up and interrupted their wedding in 2004.
The couple sent social media users in a frenzy when Lopez confirmed their romantic reunion on Instagram in July after months of speculation about it. They became aptly known as Bennifer 2.0.
Lopez told People that they approach things differently this time around to protect their relationships and their families.
“We’re so protective because it’s such a beautiful time for all of us,” she said, adding that she and Affleck consider their relationship to be “sacred.”
Lopez later slammed Affleck, telling the publication that getting another chance with a “you really, really love” is a “rare, precious, beautiful thing.”
She also celebrated the “Tender Bar” actor as father and partner, saying he is “everything I always knew he was and would be.”
Affleck similarly spoke lovingly about his revived romance with Lopez in an interview with WSJ. Magazine in December – though he remained careful not to share too many personal details about their love life at the time.
He noted that he showed “a little restraint”, but said that their reunion is a “good story.”
“I can say it’s definitely beautiful for me,” he said.
Lopez will star alongside Owen Wilson in the upcoming rom-com “Marry Me,” which hits theaters and will be available to stream on Peacock on Valentine’s Day.
