Jennifer Lopez is in unique company in terms of rings, she now has six after Ben Affleck proposed to her for the second time.Affleck is the one who gave her her third ring back in the early ‘2000s. Ben is also the one who made it possible for J-Lo to say she has as many rings as Michael Jordan and Tom Brady.
Although the QB has 7 but J-Lo still has a lot of time to get there. All jokes aside, Jennifer Lopez has loved hard throughout her incredible professional life and she was just honored with The Generation Award at the MTV Movies and TV Awards last Sunday. It was a momentous occasion in which she sent her former lovers a message.
While wearing the most recent ring Ben Affleck gave her for their engagement, she said: “I want to thank all the people who gave me this life. I want to thank the people who gave me joy, and the ones who broke my heart. The ones who were true, and the ones who lied to me. I want to thank true love, and I want to thank the way that I lied to myself, because that’s how I knew that I had to grow.”
In her speech, she also thanked her children for teaching her how to love unconditionally. But what a life she has led in the entertainment industry, J-Lo definitely deserves all that recognition. And those rings are truly spectacular, let’s have a look at how she got them. In 1996, Lopez first got engaged to Ojani Noa with a modest 3.4 carat diamond ring valued at €100,000. They were only together for a year. From her dancing days, J-Lo got married to also dancer Chris Judd and got a beautiful emerald 4 carat ring that was valued at $100,000. They ended their romance in 2002. A giant 6.1 carat pink diamond ring valued at €2,3 million was gifted to her by Ben Affleck in the early 2003 but they called off the wedding in September that year.
Marc Anthony one-upped Affleck with an 8.1 carat blue diamond ring valued at €4,7 million. He was with Lopez for 7 years and got divorced in 2011. It took Lopez six years to get engaged again, this time to MLB legend Alex Rodriguez. He gave her a 15 carat emerald ring valued at €1 million. Ben Affleck returned to her life with a wild green diamond ring valued at €9 million. At this point, we don’t know is Lopez is competing with Jordan, Brady or Thanos.
