Ben Affleck Proposed to Jennifer Lopez When She Was in the Bathtub

"Two very lucky people. Who got a second chance at true love."

We were happy enough with Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's sweet engagement announcement, but now the multi-hyphenate is blessing us with the details of the proposal. On Tuesday, Lopez sent another update about the big moment on her "inner-circle" email newsletter, "On the JLo."

"Did you ever imagine your biggest dream could come true?" she opened the message, setting the stage for the romantic prose that detailed one of the most important moments of her life.

"Saturday night while at my favorite place on earth (in the bubble bath), my beautiful love got on one knee and proposed," she told her fans in the email. "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.'"

She continued, adding that she feels so lucky to have had another shot at love with Affleck. "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. Two very lucky people. Who got a second chance at true love."

She closed out the email writing, "Green has always been my lucky color and now, for sure, it always will be. 🍀💍💚"

Followers of her newsletter also got another glimpse at the stunning sparkler in a few images, including one of her holding her newly blinged-out hand over her smiling face. She also included a close-up shot of the ring and a throwback post of her and her fiancé from their first engagement.
