Jennifer Lopez on Ben Affleck's 'bubble bath' proposal that left her 'speechless'
Last week, Lopez included a video in her On the JLo fan newsletter to share that she and Affleck were engaged once again — nearly two decades after they called off their first engagement in 2004. Now, Lopez is sharing more intimate details from the "bubble bath" proposal.
On Tuesday's installment of her newsletter, the "Marry Me" actress began: "Did you ever imagine your biggest dream could come true?"
"Saturday night while at my favorite place on earth (in the bubble bath), my beautiful love got on one knee and proposed," she wrote. "I was taken totally off guard and just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again."
This time around, Affleck proposed to Lopez with a ring featuring two smaller diamonds on each side of a large green diamond in the middle — a different shade from the pink diamond with which he popped the question the first time.
"I was quite literally speechless and he said, 'Is that a yes?' I said, 'YES of course that's a YES,' " Lopez wrote.

Lopez added that the proposal made her smile "so big" and "tears were coming down my face." She said she was "feeling so incredibly happy and whole."
Affleck also likely was in on the color green being meaningful to Lopez, since she spoke about the hue being her "lucky color" in another On the JLo newsletter over the weekend.
"Maybe you can remember a certain green dress," she wrote, likely referring to the iconic Versace dress she wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000. "I’ve realized there are many moments in my life where amazing things happened when I was wearing green. It may be a coincidence, maybe not. But as I took a better look, I realized there are no coincidences."
In Tuesday's newsletter, Lopez wrote that "green has always been my lucky color and now, for sure, it always will be."
Lopez and Affleck first sparked reconciliation rumors after they were spotted together on multiple occasions fresh off the singer's split from former baseball player Alex Rodriguez last April.
Then, Lopez broke the Internet last July when she confirmed her rekindled romance with Affleck by posting a photo on Instagram of the two kissing while celebrating her 52nd birthday.
Now, the two are headed back down the aisle. But Lopez is still basking in her proposal.
"It was nothing fancy at all," Lopez wrote Tuesday. "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. Two very lucky people. Who got a second chance at true love."
Between the two of them, Lopez and Affleck have five children from previous marriages. Lopez shares 14-year-old twins Emme and Max with ex-husband Marc Anthony and Affleck shares Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10 with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
