Three-times married Jennifer Lopez received a $1 million (GBP520,000) engagement ring from her husband Marc Anthony to celebrate her first ever one-year wedding anniversary.

J.Lo's previous marriages with Cuban waiter OJANI NOA and dancer Cris Judd both failed to pass the one year mark, but Lopez and Anthony toasted their one year as husband and wife on Sunday (05JUN05).

Lopez and long-time friend Anthony shocked Hollywood when they wed in a secret ceremony at the Latina beauty's Beverly Hills, California mansion, after only a four-month courtship and five months after she ended her high-profile engagement to Ben Affleck (JAN04).

America's STAR magazine reports the couple's initial courtship was so fast, they were never formally engaged, so Anthony thought it was a romantic gesture to give her an engagement ring.

A family friend says, "It sounds a little odd, but Marc and Jennifer were never really engaged - they just got married. So, to mark their first anniversary, Marc officially proposed, this time presenting Jennifer with an engagement ring from exclusive jeweller-to-the-stars Neil Lane.

"It's huge, and it sparkles beyond belief. Jennifer was very excited to get it."
