On Thursday, Jennifer Lopez appeared on “Good Morning America” where she gushed over her relationship with fiancé Ben Affleck as well as teared up as she discussed the $14 billion business loan initiative for Latina entrepreneurs created together with Goldman Sachs and a nonprofit Grameen America.
When asked about her relationship with fiancé celebrity actor Ben Affleck, the 52-year old singer, entrepreneur and actor said, “This is the best time of my life.” JLo added that although she loved her career she believed that there was nothing more fulfilling than “being able to build a family with someone I love deeply.” She also said that he was as dedicated as she was and that the celebrity couple were as dedicated “to each other as we can be.”
JLo also mentioned that she loved the idea of what the future could bring to their extended family of five and what they could create but she also wanted to “savor the moment” and to remain real in the present as much as she could.
In her interview with GMA, JLo also became emotional as she launched a $14 billion loan initiative to help Latina women, who had low incomes, to become entrepreneurs and launch new businesses. The initiative has Grameen America and Goldman Sachs as partners. She appeared on GMA with Andrea Jung, the president of Grameen America.
The New Yorker, who was born and raised in Bronx was in tears as she spoke about the “positive” impact that she hoped the initiative would have on people who have faced several “injustices.” She remembered her own struggles as her Puerto Rican parents raised her.
When asked for the reason for her belief that Latina women were “important” to the nation, JLo said that they were “tough” and were “made from a certain kind of fabric.” She also described these women as “entrepreneurial”, “inventive” and “creative.”
