Jennifer Lopez says her engagement to Ben Affleck happened when he proposed in her favorite place—the bathtub! The star detailed the moment her love popped the question and fans can't get enough of how romantic it was.

If Jennifer Lopez's engagement ring, described by a jewelry expert as, "the most expensive engagement ring we’ve seen in a long time," wasn't proof enough that her guy is bananas about her—his adorably personal proposal is.

As a woman with the kind of success few could ever even imagine, and the kind of glamorous lifestyle you only see in the movies, she's definitely used to the finer things in life. All that glam must get exhausting because she revealed while discussing her engagement, that her favorite place to be is in a bubble bath.


The superstar spilled the beans in her newsletter, On the JLo, in a post titled, How it Went Down, which had an accompanying video.

"Saturday night while at my favorite place on earth (in the bubble bath), my beautiful love got on one knee and proposed,” began the post. It continued, "[I] 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."

She added, “I was quite literally speechless and he said, ‘Is that a yes?’ I said ‘YES of course that’s a YES.’”

This development in their relationship is music to her fans' ears, who see their reunion as the ultimate happy ending. It's also not the only exciting thing in store for the mega star's fanbase, after details of a new project were recently revealed.

As the highly respected Tribeca Film Festival announced they're going to open with the Jennifer Lopez documentary, Halftime, it appears that life just gets better and better for Jenny from the Block.

The film comes a year after Jennifer Lopez celebrated 30 years in the entertainment industry, and will detail her journey to become one of the most successful Latina stars in history.
