2022 MTV Awards: Jennifer Lopez delivers teary-eyed acceptance speech, gives huge shoutout to Ben Affleck
Jennifer Lopez was on FIRE at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards. Be it for her appropriate outfit or the fact that she won 2 awards, JLo never fails to impress us. At the 2022 MTV Awards in Santa Monica on Sunday, June 5, she won Best Song for 'On My Way (Marry Me)' and also the Generation Award where she got emotional and gave Ben Affleck, her fiance, a huge shoutout. She also mentioned her two kids and thanked them for teaching her "how to love."
JLo began while keeping her fiance and kids in mind, "I want to thank all the people who gave me this life. I want to thank the people who gave me joy, and the ones who broke my heart. The ones who were true, and the ones who lied to me. I want to thank the way that I lied to myself because that's how I knew that I had to grow." The 'Marry Me' actress started to get emotional with the mention of her children. She began to thank her 14-year-old twins Max and Emme and thanked them for teaching her how to love."
She continued, "I want to thank all the people who told me, to my face or, when I wasn't in the room, that I couldn't do this. I really don't think I could've done it without you. And I know I couldn't have done it without the fans who saw the movies. You, you, you, you and you — you are the reason that I am here, and that I have been here, and I love you!" She then goes on to mention her fiance at the end of the speech, Ben Affleck, and says, "Ben and everybody at home, wait for me to have dinner. I will be home by 7!"
Ben Affleck & JLo, a blooming romance
Affleck and JLo rekindled their romance after 20 years and it's almost like a fairy tale come true. Recently, the 52-year-old singer took to her Instagram to share some steamy images of her in a bathtub captioned, "Happiness is a long hot bubble bath (even if you have to take a quick call!) See you later." The reason why this picture made rounds on social media is that a report suggested that Ben went on down on his knee while JLo was in the middle of her bubble bath.
It gets more exciting because TMZ recently reported that there were several trucks outside JLo and Ben Affleck's house, respectively. To be taken with a grain of salt, it's also said that the pair is buying a $60 million mansion in Los Angeles which would be a great fit for their five children. Ben shares Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, with Jennifer Garner. Lopez shares her 14-year-old twins, Max and Emme, with Marc Anthony. According to the reports, the house is said to have a theatre and the duo even looked at houses priced as much as $85 million.
