In a new interview with People to promote her new film Marry Me, Lopez reflected on her relationship with Affleck and what she thinks the future holds for them.
“I’ve never been better. It’s just that we’re all in a very beautiful moment. I feel so lucky and happy and proud to be with him. It’s a beautiful love story that we got a second chance,” she said.
Lopez went on to explain that when her and Affleck decided to rekindle their romance last spring, they both had a “little bit of fear.”
“Before we kind of put [our relationship] out there and we were naïve and it got a little trampled,” she said reflecting on their first try.
“We both were like, ‘Wow, we’re so happy and we don’t want any of that to come into play again.’ We’re older now, we’re smarter, we have more experience, we’re at different places in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things,” she added.
Addressing her future, Lopez said she just wanted to it be full of “happiness and love” as she grows older with Affleck.
“I just want my future to be full of love and happiness, with my children and my partner. I think everybody just wants to be happy, with somebody to go on the journey with and grow old with, and I feel good about that right now,” she said.
