Will JLo FINALLY marry Ben Affleck? Sizzling star drops big hint
Jennifer Lopez isn't ruling out the possibility of another wedding. In a segment with co-host Hoda Kotb that aired Thursday on the Today show, the actress, 52, said she is open to being married again. "The two words 'Marry me' — are those two words you would like to hear in the future?" Asked Kotb , 57, to Jennifer Lopez on the occasion of talking about her upcoming romantic comedy movie "Marry Me".
"I don't know. Yeah, I guess. I mean, you know me. I'm a romantic, I always have been. I've been married a few times," said Lopez with a laughter. She is currently dating Ben Affleck , with whom she was previously engaged in 2002 before splitting in 2004. The couple reunited earlier this year. She has been married three times before — to Ojani Noa from 1997 to 1998, Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003, and most recently, Marc Anthony, whom she married in 2004 and divorced in 2014.
