JENNIFER LOPEZ, ACTRESS: At the end he was -- he just said will you marry me? And I was just like, oh, and he had the ring out. But I didn't want to look at the ring because I could tell it was pink. And I was just like, oh God, it can't be pink on top of it. And I was -- it's just too much for me to handle. I was just like oh my God. I was like you can't.
He was like, baby, look at it. I was like I can't. I can't, you know. And he was just like look at it. And I looked at the ring, and I was like oh my God. It was just -- it's the most magnificent thing. And he was like you haven't answered me. And I was like oh yes, yes, yes, yes.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
CALLAWAY: Proving once again that it is all about the ring.
Our friend Tracy St. George of Atlanta's Q-100 Radio here with more on J.Lo.
Hey, what'd you think of that?
TRACY ST. GEORGE, Q-100 ATLANTA: It's six carats, you know,...
ST. GEORGE: ... that ring.
CALLAWAY: And pink and beautiful.
ST. GEORGE: And pink.
ST. GEORGE: She is so fabulous. I love J.Lo. I've always been a big fan of J.Lo ever since she was Salina, who I love Salina. That was kind of her big break. Of course she was the "Living Color" girl, the Fly Girl; but I think Salina, when she came out with that movie, you know that really brought her in to the public eye.
CALLAWAY: You know a lot of people were watching that interview last night. Why do you think she's so popular? Everybody loves J.Lo.
ST. GEORGE: Because she's so down to earth.
ST. GEORGE: She's from the Bronx. We love her. And...
CALLAWAY: And she's not some little twig.
ST. GEORGE: Exactly. Like we were saying,...
CALLAWAY: She's a real woman.
ST. GEORGE: Yes, we can't break her.
CALLAWAY: No, she's a strong woman.
ST. GEORGE: Yes.
CALLAWAY: Any surprises from that interview or do you just enjoy watching J.Lo?
ST. GEORGE: I just enjoy watching her. I love her. I can't believe, though, she said I've had two weddings but not a marriage yet. That kind of made me feel bad for Ojani and Chris Judd, you know?
ST. GEORGE: That would drive me to drink if somebody said that about me. But you know three husbands in five years this is going to be.
CALLAWAY: She -- is she divorced...
ST. GEORGE: No.
CALLAWAY: ... from the second husband yet?
ST. GEORGE: No, divorce is going to be final in January. And I think she's going to -- the rumor was they were going to get married on Valentine's Day, but she said that she doesn't want to rush this with Ben.
CALLAWAY: Oh my goodness!
ST. GEORGE: Yes.
CALLAWAY: What, you know these Hollywood people,...
ST. GEORGE: I know, I tell you.
CALLAWAY: ... two, three marriages. ST. GEORGE: I tell you.
CALLAWAY: All right, well I know you're going to be talking about it a lot on Q-100.
ST. GEORGE: Yes.
CALLAWAY: Thanks -- Tracy.
ST. GEORGE: Thank you.
CALLAWAY: Have a great day.
ST. GEORGE: Thanks, you too.
