Ben Affleck showered Jennifer Lopez with £3m worth of gifts during early romance

Jennifer Lopez certainly wasn't short of diamonds when she was dating Ben Affleck the first time around from 2002 to 2004

The couple, who have recently reunited and are said to be house hunting in LA, were together from 2002 to 2004.They were due to get married, but called it off three days before they were supposed to walk down the aisle, citing “excessive media attention surrounding our wedding”.

But during those two years, Ben showered J-Lo with gifts, including a pink diamond engagement ring thought to be worth £2 million alone.And that’s not the only present the Hollywood actor bought for his then beau, who famously sang Love Don’t Cost A Thing.

Gone Girl star Ben is said to have splashed out £300,000 on another ring just months after he proposed.He presented Jennifer with the diamond and topaz sparkler for her 33rd birthday in July 2003.A day before Jennifer’s birthday, Ben also had a brand new Rolls Royce Phantom worth £250,000 delivered to her Hollywood home – even though it is thought she had a chauffeur in those days and didn’t actually drive.

To round off her birthday extravaganza, Ben reportedly threw a huge surprise party in Malibu, flying in Jennifer’s relatives from all over the US for the celebration.Jennifer celebrates her 52nd birthday today – and while she is back with Ben after splitting from Alex Rodriguez, the celebrations this time round are set to be a more low-key affair.

A source told Hollywood Life Jennifer’s birthday will be a “very chill day” which will involve “family and Ben” and a “great meal”.“She is looking to be with family and Ben, have a great meal and just take the day to relax since the rest of her year is usually devoted to work,” the source said.

But with Ben’s 49th birthday just three weeks away on August 15, the source hinted the couple may be planning a bigger celebration then.“Ben’s birthday is right round the corner and they are looking to travel a little more and they will celebrate both their big days as the summer continues.”

While Bennifer is officially a thing again, with the couple making it Instagram official this week, a lot has happened in the years they were apart.Jennifer was married to singer Marc Anthony and had twins, Max and Emme, who are now 13 years old.Ben married actress Jennifer Garner, who he began dating shortly after his split with Jennifer, and they have three children together – Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and nine-year-old Samuel.
