Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck made headlines when they rekindled their romance last year, a whole 17 years after they called off their engagement in 2004.

Nand now J Lo is opening up about their second chance of love and explaining why their relationship is different to what it once was.

Speaking to People, Jennifer shared: “I feel so lucky and happy and proud to be with him. It’s a beautiful love story that we got a second chance.

“Before we kind of put [our relationship] out there and we were naïve and it got a little trampled. We both were like, ‘Wow, we’re so happy and we don’t want any of that to come into play again.’

Continuing, she shared: “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. We’re so protective because it is such a beautiful time for all of us.

“I just feel very happy and lucky to be in a relationship that’s happy and loving, and I want to do everything I can to protect that and keep it safe. It deserves that, it really does. … We hold it sacred.

Speaking about what’s different about their relationship now, J Lo added: “It’s beautiful the way it feels very different than it was years ago. … There’s more of an appreciation and a celebration for it, which is nice.”

“When you find somebody and you really, really love them and you get a second chance at that? That is a really rare, precious, beautiful thing and we don’t take it for granted.”

Even more, Jennifer then started to gush about Ben himself. “I’m so proud of him, I’m so proud of the man he’s become that I’ve watched from afar. Being honest with each other, being loving, that’s just the basis of everything.

“I feel like he’s at a place in his life where – just like how I feel about myself – it’s been a journey of learning yourself and figuring yourself out, getting to a place where you feel really good on your own and who you are so you can be in a happy, healthy relationship.”

“To see the person, the human being, the man that he is today, the father that he is today, the partner that he is, he is so everything I always knew he was and wanted to be.”

We have no choice but to love these two.
