In news that's sending my already hyperactive brain into overdrive, Ben Affleck was spotted browsing jewelry at a Los Angeles branch of Tiffany & Co. In photos obtained by Page Six (opens in new tab), the actor—who has been dating (opens in new tab) his ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez for several weeks—can clearly be seen hanging out in Tiffany's with his mom, Chris, and son, Samuel.
The actor spent time looking at a display of rings, and apparently taking notes on them as well. Of course, Affleck could have been there for a number of reasons... I mean, right? That said, it wouldn't be totally out of the realm of possibility for him to be looking for an engagement ring for J-Lo. We will probably never know the truth—unless he proposes, that is.
The two previously became engaged in late 2002, with Affleck offering Lopez a pink diamond ring by Harry Winston, according to British Vogue (opens in new tab). They called off the wedding in 2003, and ultimately broke up in 2004, per CheatSheet (opens in new tab). However, they rekindled their love (opens in new tab) this year, shortly after Lopez' separation from Alex Rodriguez (opens in new tab). Bennifer have since enjoyed vacations (opens in new tab), dates (opens in new tab) and outings with their respective kids (opens in new tab), and all signs point to them planning a future together (opens in new tab).
Lopez has previously been engaged five times—to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd, Ben Affleck, Marc Anthony, and Alex Rodriguez. Of those five betrothals, only three eventually led to marriage: Lopez wed Noa in 1997, Judd in 2001, and Anthony in 2004. She and the latter had two kids together, twins Emme (opens in new tab) and Max.
As for Affleck, he was married to Jennifer Garner from 2005 to 2018, according to Insider (opens in new tab). They had three children together, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel.
