Wed me once more! Jennifer Lopez arises with her SECOND wedding band from Ben Affleck as couple continue house hunting after bargain for a $55m manor in Bel-Air fails to work out
Ben Affleck and his new fiancee Jennifer Lopez were spotted together for the first time since announcing their second engagement. After the newly-engaged couple’s deal on a $55 million estate in Bel-Air fell through, according to TMZ , the pair were back to house hunting over the weekend.
While it is unknown what caused the stars to back out of buying the last property, they have been touring more expensive homes in the area, valued at a whooping $64 million and $72 million. An eyewitness reported that the couple spent about two hours checking out three different homes on Sunday with Affleck’s two youngest kids, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, ten, who he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
For the excursion, the 52-year-old Marry Me actress rocked a white tank top under an open button-down, dark-wash jeans and a pair of silver hoop earrings. She kept her light brown hair in a sleek updo with a few, wavy strands cascading down the sides of her face and sported a natural makeup look, consisting of a black eyeliner, glossy nude lipstick and a little bronzer for a sun-kissed glow.

Affleck looked handsome in a light blue button-down as he drove his brood to various different mansions. Meanwhile his teenager, Seraphina, cut a casual figure in a black The Beatles band t-shirt, blue flannel, jeans and Dr. Martens boots. Her younger brother wore a white t-shirt, brown pants and sneakers. Affleck’s eldest Violet, 16, did not appear to be present during the outing, nor did Lopez’s 14-year-old twins Emme and Max, who she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
The musical sensation and the Academy Award winner were in escrow on a $50M massive mansion (pictured), being sold by Texas billionaire Todd Lemkin, which had ten bedrooms and 17 bathrooms to accommodate their blended family.
The spectacular mansion (pictured) also featured a theatre, gym, multiple kitchens, an infinity edge pool, and a stunning view of a golf course and the city.
The performer’s engagement comes after they were previously engaged 18 years ago in 2004. The couple’s relationship came as a shock to fans; they reunited in May 2021 – 17 years after their failed engagement.
In April 2021, Jennifer confirmed the end of her relationship with Alex Rodriguez, a former New York Yankee after the pair dated for four years and were engaged for two years. In mid-May, Jennifer spent some time in Los Angeles with Ben, igniting rumors they had in fact reunited. The couple went Instagram official with their relationship in July while on a European holiday in honor of her 52nd birthday.
The power couple have continued going from strength to strength in their relationship since then, attending red carpet events and spending time together around the world. Ben and Jen first started dating in early 2002 after meeting on set of Gigli.
They became engaged in November 2002, with Ben proposing to her with a 6.1 carat radiant cut pink diamond ring with two trapezoid white diamonds, mounted on 18K pink gold and platinum band from Harry Winston. The ring is now worth an estimated $12 million, with it costing Ben at the time (November 2002) a reported $1.2 million. The huge increase in worth stems from the price of the rare colored diamond, which has soared. They were set to get married in September 2003, but postponed their wedding and eventually broke up in January 2004.
