Christmas is the singer's favorite time of the year and she wants to make it extra special for her husband.
It's the most wonderful time of the year, and Jennifer Lopez plans on making it extra special for her new husband, Ben Affleck. The two are reportedly having a blast getting ready for the festive season. A source told ET, "Jen's favorite holiday is Christmas, so she always goes all out, but this is a really exciting time for them as a couple since it's their first Christmas as husband and wife. Ben and Jen picked out and decorated a huge tree with the help of their children. Their home feels festive and looks gorgeous with decorations and everything lit up."
This year the singer plans on making the day extra special and hopes to create their own new traditions as a blended family. "They are planning to spend the holidays together with the kids and Jen's family," the source continued. "Jen, her mom, and her sister are all amazing cooks, so they're looking forward to being with each other and eating amazing food."
JLo and Affleck first met in 2002, got engaged in 2003, and later called it off and went their separate ways in 2004. Now nearly 20 years and two weddings later, they couldn't be happier. The Let's Get Loud singer's first engagement ring from Affleck two decades ago was a pink diamond ring with 'sing' written on it. This time around, the second engagement ring has a special significance with the color green which is believed to be Affleck's wife's "lucky" color. "I've realized there are many moments in my life where amazing things happened when I was wearing green," Lopez had mentioned in a previous newsletter, according to PEOPLE. Perhaps there will be plenty of green elements in their celebrations this year?
About Christmas presents, Lopez has apparently "picked out some things for Ben and wants to spoil him." "Ben is planning on giving Jen a couple of things that are special and sentimental that have taken him a long time to find," the source revealed. "He is also planning on giving her beautiful jewelry and a couple of big things that are surprises." They may even spend some alone time together away from home. They have been "talking about the possibility of going on a trip just the two of them to get some rest and relaxation." Since they have busy schedules with regard to work it's been a bit difficult to get the perfect dates, but a romantic getaway "is in the works."
