Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are getting married!

Lopez’s spokeswoman confirms to PEOPLE that the couple, who rekindled their romance last year, is engaged. Lopez revealed the news in her On the JLo newsletter, just days after she was pictured wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring.

In a Friday evening email to her close group, she shared the happy news. Lopez’s message to fans included a video of her admiring a large, green diamond on her ring finger, which her sister also shared on social media.

On the same night, Lopez teased the “big announcement” with a video on Twitter. “So I’ve got a pretty fascinating and unique story to tell…” Lopez informed her fans. Her Twitter handle now includes a diamond ring emoji.

Affleck most recently expressed his support for his future wife-to-be by cheering her on with his son Samuel and her daughter Emme at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in March, where Lopez earned the Icon Award.

“We’re older now, we’re smarter, we have more experience, we’re at different points in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very mindful of those things,” Lopez told PEOPLE. “We’re at different places in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things.”

The Marry Me actress, 52, has 14-year-old twins Emme and Max with ex-husband Marc Anthony, and Affleck, 49, has Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

Lopez told PEOPLE, “It’s a fantastic outcome that this has happened in this fashion at this point in our lives where we can really appreciate, celebrate, and respect each other.” “We always did, but now we appreciate it much more because we know how life may take you in unexpected paths.”

She went on to say, “We’ve been in the public eye long enough to know who we are as individuals and what really counts and what doesn’t. We have children and treat each other with respect… We truly live lives that we are proud of, and our children can be proud of you. We simply operate from a position of love and respect for everyone in our life, which is really important to us. We are aware of the truth and regard it as sacrosanct.”

Lopez and Affleck began dating in July 2002 and were engaged in November of that year, but their September 2003 wedding was postponed just days before the date. In January of 2004, they called off their engagement

In December, Affleck told WSJ. Magazine that he considers himself “fortunate” to have been offered second chances in both his professional and personal lives.

“In my professional life, I’ve been given second chances. As a human being, I’ve been given second chances. Life is challenging, and we constantly fail, hopefully learning from our mistakes “he stated “The second chance is the one thing you really need to take advantage of the opportunities that come with that growth. I’ve made every effort to take advantage of it. I haven’t always been successful, but when I have, it has turned out to be one of the most important things of my life.”
