Announcing the news via a video message in her newsletter on Friday, April 8, J Lo, 52, said, "you're perfect", before flashing her green diamond ring. No official statements from Affleck, 49, at the time of writing.

Rumours of their engagement have been circulating for some time. The Jenny From the Block singer was photographed by TMZ while furniture shopping most recently. It's believed she turned the ring into her palm in an attempt to hide the news.

Preempting their engagement, the A-list couple recently purchased a gorgeous $55 million estate in Bel Air, complete with 10 bedrooms, 17 bathrooms and, of course, a pool.

Reacting to the news online, one fan wrote: "One Thing About Jlo She Gone Get Engaged,Lord Of The Rings Ain't Got Shit On Herrrrrr."

"We've said congratulations to many times at this point, "another said. "Thanos has 24hrs to respond with the collection of more stones."

The couple first got engaged in later 2002, but the wedding was called off. Affleck's chosen 2002 engagement ring is worth a staggering $12m despite the actor only paying $1.2m. The 6.1-carat radiant cut pink diamond is flanked by two two trapezoid white diamonds, mounted on an 18K pink gold and platinum band from Harry Winston.

Since coupling back up last year, the two are rarely seen without one another.

"Jennifer was just in Los Angeles for a couple of days," a source told People. "She spent time with Ben. They have kept in touch every day since their Montana trip."
