I cannot believe we're gathered here today to discuss Jennifer Lopez's second engagement to Ben Affleck. I dreamed about this moment. I prayed my favorite early aughts couple would get back together again, but I never thought this day would come — never!

Now, fans are finally getting to know how the big question went down for a second time.

On Friday, it was announced that Bennifer 2.0 was officially on route to the aisle once again.

I was thrilled beyond words. It felt like there was hope in the world once again.

True love really does win, and we've been lucky enough to be along for the ride.

Just two months ago, Jennifer got candid about what ruined her original union with Ben back in 2004.

"Having a second chance at real love … yeah. Like I said, we learned a lot. We know what’s real, what’s not real," she said."So it’s just — the game has changed.

She went on to emphasize how important privacy was to their relationship now. Back in the day, everyone knew everything about them.

“I don’t think we would have got back together if we thought that was where it was headed."

"We feel like what we found again is so much more important, and how we protect that and how we live our lives — what to share, what not to share — is the balance that we have now, the benefit of experience and the wisdom that we gained over the years."

Sorry, just let me take a break to dry my tears.

Jennifer went on to say that the constant scrutiny from the media had a hand in the pair's breakup, and goes on to reference racist jokes made at her expense at the beginning of her career.

“It’s funny because Ben and I were together, and we were so in love, it was one of the happiest times of my life,” she explained.

"It really destroyed our relationship from the inside out, because we were just too young to understand at that time what were really the most important things in life."

It's clear Jenny from the Block wasn't ready to give up on the idea of a soulmate, no matter what anyone says!

Now, J.Lo is revealing all the details about how Ben popped the question a second time around, and the tears are already welling up in my eyes.

In her newsletter for her website "On The J.Lo" the 51-year-old shared how it all went down.

"Did you ever imagine your biggest dream could come true?" she began.

"Saturday night while at my favorite place on earth (in the bubble bath), my beautiful love got on one knee and proposed," Jennifer recalled.

"I was taken totally off guard and 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."

"I was quite literally speechless and he said, 'is that a yes?' I said YES of course that’s a YES," she explained.

Jen was (understandably) super emotional and said she "was smiling so big and tears were coming down my face" as she felt "so incredibly happy and whole."

The simplicity of it was part of the charm for the "Marry Me" star.

"It was nothing fancy at all, but it was the most romantic thing I could've ever imagined...just a quiet Saturday night at home, two people promising to always be there for each other."

"Two very lucky people. Who got a second chance at true love," she wrote.

Okay, are you crying yet? Because I sure am! I can't believe fairytales really do come true and I can't think of another celeb who deserves it more than Miss Jenny from the Block!
