Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are engaged - again.
The A-list couple first started dating back in 2002, quickly branded 'Bennifer' by fans as they made headlines around the world and starred together in the (disastrous) Gigli, with Affleck even appearing in Lopez' music videos.
Twenty years later, the pair have rekindled their romance and are once again ready to tie the knot.

Engagement rumours started swirling around the couple when the 'Jenny From The Block' singer was snapped wearing a massive green diamond ring while shopping with her daughter in Los Angeles.
In a short clip posted to social media, Lopez then teased an 'exciting and special story' she'd be sharing with her fans, while also adding a diamond ring to her display name on Twitter.
Fans have been sending well wishes to the couple, although one joked: "Don’t let Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck trick you into getting back together with your ex."
Equipped with a $2.5 million ring, Affleck first proposed to Lopez in November 2002. In an earlier interview with Diane Sawyer, Lopez described her fiancé as 'brilliantly smart, loving, charming and affectionate.'
However, amid 'excessive media attention' around their wedding, they decided to postpone until a later date - alas, back then, it wasn't meant to be.
In a statement (as per Page Six), the couple said: "We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could be compromised.
"We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoiled for us, our families, and our friends."
After calling off their engagement in 2004, Lopez quickly went onto marry singer Marc Anthony, while Affleck married Jennifer Garner a year later.
The pair got back together last year following Lopez's split from Alex Rodriguez. Affleck also dated his Deep Water co-star Ana de Armas for a brief time.
During an appearance on Ellen, Lopez said: I don’t think anybody was more surprised than us. You never could imagine that something like that could happen. It’s a beautiful thing."
She also told PEOPLE: "We're older now, we're smarter, we have more experience, we're at different places in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things."
