Ben Affleck had custom jewelry created for J.Lo that represent their ‘wild’ and ‘untamed’ love for her 52nd birthday. See the meaningful pieces.

Ben Affleck gifted Jennifer Lopez a meaningful birthday gift in France last weekend. The “Jenny From the Block” singer celebrated her 52nd birthday on the French Riviera with loved ones on July 24, soaking up the sun aboard a yacht and celebrating at a night club. HollywoodLife previously reported that Ben, 48, had gotten his girlfriend something special for the occasion, and now, we know what that is: custom pieces from jewelry brand Foundrae that represent their “untamed” love.

A post shared by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo)

Foundrae creative director and co-founder Beth Bugdaycay told E! News that Ben created custom items for J.Lo that told a story about their romance. “With the custom piece Ben created for Jennifer, it clearly communicated their love, but it’s also a reminder of their capacity for change and growth,” Beth said. One medallion — seen in J.Lo’s Instagram birthday post (above) — is all about “resilience.”

“For example, one of the medallions he chose represents resilience, which we describe as wild, abundant, and untamed,” Beth told the outlet. “The blossoms are fed with passion and continue to bloom, even in darkness, against adversity. But we can’t separate the flower from its thorn. The thorn is the risk we assume for something we love, for living life fully without reserve.”

The chains, charms, and key worn by the singer in her birthday post are from Foundrae. “The heart of the Foundrae fine jewelry collection is our symbols,” Beth continued. “They carry a language of their own and allow the wearer to customize a unique piece that is a reflection of their own personal story; not just a record of where they have been, but a declaration of what is yet in front of them.”

Beth added that the team was “blown away” by Ben’s “romantic gesture,” adding that he was thoroughly involved in the selection process. “[Ben] reviewed the meanings of each piece before finally selecting these,” Beth said. “A lion was also in the running, but I think what he settled on is just perfect.”

The two, who dated between 2002 and 2004, rekindled their romance in May following J.Lo’s split from fiancé Alex Rodriguez. The birthday bash comes after the couple made their Instagram debut — on actress Leah Remini’s account. J.Lo’s birthday post with the Foundrae jewelry marked the first time Ben made an appearance on her IG.

Jennifer Lopez was looking extra stylish in a red bikini as she cuddled beside boyfriend Ben Affleck in Italy amidst the couple’s ongoing European getaway.

Jennifer Lopez, 52, was a lady in red while sunbathing with boyfriend Ben Affleck , 48, on vacation off Italy’s Amalfi coast. The couple was up to their usual Bennifer antics when pictured snuggling up to one another on Wednesday (July 28) at the European paradise. Jennifer, who just celebrated her 52nd birthday, looked fully relaxed while sporting a strapless red bikini and long white pants. She finished off her look with stylish sunglasses and had her hair up in a ponytail. Ben, meanwhile, donned a polo shirt and his own pair of sunglasses.

Jen and Ben both looked to be enjoying the latest stop on their European vacay. In one photo taken Wednesday, Jen sat back comfortably as she relaxed in a chair to soak up the sun in her cute swimsuit. Another snapshot showed the couple with big smiles on their faces as they cuddled up beside each other. These two really are the cutest!

Bennifer’s ongoing trip has looked like nothing short of amazing. The vacation began in St. Tropez, France over the weekend, where the couple finally made things Instagram official with a PDA-filled snapshot on a yacht. Then, they partied together to J.Lo’s 2002 hit “Jenny From The Block” at her birthday party at the L’Opera restaurant. “J.Lo celebrated with close friends. She was in the best mood and happiest she has been in a long time,” a source told HollywoodLife exclusively. Oh, and the couple also fueled some serious nostalgia when, while hanging out on the yacht, Ben grabbed Jennifer’s backside — just like he did in the iconic music video.

After departing St. Tropez, Bennifer headed to Monaco on Monday, July 26, where the “Let’s Get Loud” songstress was photographed donning a necklace, with her beau’s name spelled out “B-E-N.” They then made their way to Italy, first stopping in Capri where they were captured holding hands while on a romantic walk together on Tuesday, July 27. For that outing, Jen looked fabulous in a white dress, straw hat and high-heeled sandals, while the Oscar winner sported a navy blue polo, khaki pants, and white sneakers.

Jen and Ben have been going full steam ahead since they rekindled their romance in early May. Prior to their European getaway, they toured properties in Santa Monica and Holmby Hills. However, a source told HollywoodLife that the two are “not moving in together any time soon.” The source added that the A-list lovebirds “spend a lot of time together and she values Ben‘s opinion on things so she brought him to look at houses for her as she gets ready to be in LA more.” Jen’s children Emme and Max, both 13, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, will “go back and forth between Los Angeles and Miami to see their dad,” the source said, but noted that LA will remain the kids’ home base.

Matt Damon was once again asked about BFF Ben Affleck’s rekindled romance with J.Lo, and this time he got creative when giving his honest opinion on Bennifer.

Matt Damon, 50, is reiterating the he couldn’t be happier about the Bennifer reunion — but this time he’s adding a sprinkle of sarcasm in his response on the topic. The Oscar winner appeared on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show on Tuesday and, after fielding yet another question about bestie Ben Affleck getting back with Jennifer Lopez, pointed out that he realistically would have nothing but joy for the couple’s rekindled romance. “But how else would I be? Like would I be unhappy?” Matt said with a laugh.

“Like I hate true love, it sucks,” Matt sarcastically added. He went on to say, with another big laugh, that he wishes Ben and Jen “nothing but you know, hardship.” Don’t worry Bennifer fans, Matt was fully joking. After all, he had told Extra the day prior that “was just so happy” for Ben. “He’s the best. He deserves every happiness in the world,” Matt added of his longtime friend and collaborator. “I’m glad for both of them.”

Those interviews mark the second and third time Matt has been asked about the big Bennifer reunion. The first was back in May, shortly after the couple was spotted together on holiday in Montana, when he appeared on an episode of Today. But the Good Will Hunting star stayed much more mum on the topic back then, telling Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, “There’s not enough liquor in the world for you to get me to say something about that.” He also claimed that Ben and Jen’s reunion was news to him. “It’s the first time I heard about it. It’s a fascinating story,” Matt said. “I hope it’s true. I love them both. I hope it’s true. That would be awesome.”

Ben and Jen have been getting hot and heavy since starting up Bennifer 2.0. They were spotted out and about together for months, but finally made things “Instagram official” when Jen shared a photo of her smooching Ben while on her PDA-packed 52nd birthday extravaganza in St. Tropez. Then, the couple cuddled up while jamming to “Jenny From The Block” at a late-night birthday bash. They’ve since traveled to Monaco, where Jen was seen sporting a necklace with three charms that spelled out “B-E-N,” and to Capri, Italy, where they were spotted holding hands on a romantic walk.

Talk about a close call. Exes Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s yachts literally sailed beside each other in the South of France — and it was clear whose ship was bigger.

Exes Jennifer Lopez, 52, and Alex Rodriguez, 46, were so close, yet so far from one another when their respective yachts sailed nearby each other in Monaco. On Tuesday, July 27, the “Let’s Get Loud” songstress was onboard The Valerie, an 85-meter-long yacht, with boyfriend Ben Affleck, 48, following the couple’s romantic getaway to St. Tropez for her 52nd birthday. At one point during the journey, their yacht coincidentally sailed right beside The Ocean Paradise, a 55-meter-long vessel that was carrying Alex, who was enjoying his own tropical getaway for his 46th birthday that day, according to the Daily Mail.

The side-by-side photos of the former couple’s yachts really spoke for themselves. Per DM, Bennifer’s yacht is worth $130 million and boasts seven bedrooms across six decks. The ship reportedly has a top speed of 17 knots (20 mph) and costs $1,119,000 per week to charter. Meanwhile, Alex’s ride, The Ocean Paradise, is worth $30 million, has nine cabins and also has a top speed of 17 knots. It’s worth much less than Jen’s ride though, with a weekly charter price of $312,000, the DM reported.

Jen and Alex have both been vacationing in France to celebrate their respective birthdays. The singer’s getaway with Ben has made headlines, particularly for their romantic kiss on the yacht that marked the on-again couple finally making things instagram official. Bennifer also kept their celebrations going by parting to her 2002 hit “Jenny From The Block” at a restaurant in St. Tropez. On Tuesday, seemingly after their boat passed A-Rod’s in Monaco, the couple was seen holding hands in Capri, Italy.

Meanwhile, A-Rod has been celebrating turning 46 on his yacht in France with some family and friends, including Eric Decker and his wife Jessie James Decker. CBS sideline reporter Melanie Collins was also at the boat party for the former New York Yankee, which sparked romance rumors between the two. However, a source told Page Six that Melanie and Alex are “just friends.”

The dynamics of Alex and Jen’s relationship is relatively unknown. However, the ex-MLB star indicated that he has no ill will towards his former fiancee when he “liked” a birthday tribute to Jennifer shared on Instagram by her sister, Lynda Lopez, on July 24. The former couple started dating in 2017 and got engaged in March 2019. Split rumors first surfaced in March 2021, and the couple confirmed that they were “working through some things” in their relationship. The following month, Jen and Alex called off their engagement — and soon after Bennifer was back in action.

Jennifer Lopez spent her 52nd birthday with Ben Affleck in France, and now a source tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that Ben got J.Lo a ‘gift’ during the romantic celebrations.

Now that’s how you celebrate a birthday! Jennifer Lopez rang in her 52nd birthday on July 24 with rekindled lover Ben Affleck, 48, with a romantic getaway to St. Tropez, France. The two soaked up the sun on a yacht ride during the day and then kept the celebrations going with an epic party at the L’Opera nightclub with a group of friends on Saturday night. “J.Lo celebrated with close friends. She was in the best mood and happiest she has been in a long time,” a source tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY of Jen’s birthday bash.

Jen seemed to be joined by many important people for her festivities, Ben included, but the source did note that her 13-year-old twins Max and Emme were not in attendance. “The kids were not there. It was an adults only trip,” the source said. And as far as Ben goes, the source said that the Oscar winner may have given Jen more than just romantic kisses for her birthday. “Ben got her a gift,” the source told HL. Details on this mysterious gift weren’t clarified, and HollywoodLife has reached out to Ben and Jen’s reps but has not heard back.

There’s really no confirmation as to what Ben’s gift for Jen was. However, the “Let’s Get Loud” singer was seen after the celebrations walking around in Monaco on Monday (July 26) wearing a very special piece of jewelry: a necklace that says “Ben.” There’s certainly a chance this could indeed be Ben’s gift that he got for his sweetheart, but only time will tell if that’s the case.

Jen and Ben packed on plenty of PDA during her big birthday weekend. First, she planted a huge kiss on Ben while wearing a yellow Dolce & Gabbana kimono in the slideshow gallery that made the couple Instagram official. “5 2…what it do,” Jen captioned the monumental post. Then later that evening, they snuggled close at a party where Jen’s classic tune “Jenny From The Block” played over the sound system. Ben famously starred in the song’s 2002 music video, which took a shot at the intense media attention their relationship was receiving at the time.

Since rekindling in April, Bennifer has basically been inseparable. However, they haven’t yet addressed their resurfaced romance in interviews or on social media aside from the photo of their steamy kiss. Jen has also remained mum on her split from ex fiancé Alex Rodriguez, whom she was in a relationship with from 2017 to early 2021.

Jennifer Garner was all smiles while picking up a bouquet of fresh flowers, amid her ex Ben Affleck’s European getaway with Jennifer Lopez.

Jennifer Garner stepped out for a flower run in Los Angeles on July 25. The 49-year-old Yes Day actress was spotted running errands at the farmer’s market, and appeared to be in high spirits as she left with an armful of groceries and bright bouquets. She cut a casual figure in an all-black ensemble, including leggings and a sweatshirt. The brunette beauty also wore black-rimmed glasses and a white protective face mask.

As fans would know, her ex Ben Affleck, 48, has been yachting on the French Riviera with Jennifer Lopez, 52, in celebration of her birthday. On the same day Jennifer (Garner, that is) was seen running errands in L.A., Ben was photographed grabbing J.Lo’s backside on a yacht in St. Tropez.

The singer rocked an orange string bikini, while Ben cut a casual figure in a grey tee and shorts. After touching her backside, Jen then leaned up and planted a kiss on her new beau. The snaps were reminiscent of a scene from J.Lo’s iconic 2002 “Jenny From The Block” music video, which showed her rocking a bright pink bikini while lounging on a boat.

Jen also isn’t expecting any lavish gifts, she just wants to be as low key as possible,” the source also told us.

The post marks the first social media confirmation by either party about their rekindled romance, roughly three months after they were first spotted hanging out together. It actually marked the second social media post involving Bennifer in recent days.

The pair snuggled up for a sweet snap with Jen’s pal Leah Remini at her 51st birthday bash. The black-and-white photo booth image appeared in a video montage shared by Leah (32 seconds in, to be exact), and showed Jen resting her hand on Ben’s chest as she gave the camera a demure smile. Now that they’ve made it social media official, it seems the pair aren’t shying away from the camera, with the duo looking very loved up in a series of pics and videos from J.Lo’s 52nd birthday party.

Jennifer Lopez marked her 52nd year with an epic birthday party! Ben Affleck, 48, was on hand for the St. Tropez soirée, snuggling with Jen the entire time per videos taken on Saturday, July 24. At one point, her signature tune “Jenny From The Block” came on the mega speakers, prompting Ben and J.Lo to pack on some PDA for the crowd to see. The cuddly couple shared a kiss as they smiled and laughed, likely remembering the good times they had filming the unforgettable music video the song.

Ben memorably co-starred in the Francis Lawrence directed video which poked fun at the intense media attention surrounding  Bennifer‘ between 2002 and 2004. Just like their current south of France vacation, the couple enjoyed some time on a yacht (which included a brief, iconic scene of Ben kissing Jen’s famous derrière), exchanging gifts (a watch he still has to this day), pumping gas, and more.

The song served as the lead single from her 2002 album This Is Me…Then, which was dedicated to her boyfriend-turned-fiancé. J.Lo’s third album included a number of tracks inspired by her romance with Ben, including “Dear Ben”, two versions of “The One,” “Baby I Love U!”, just to name a few.

The lavish party looked like the perfect way for Jen to celebrate turning 52, which she’s posting about loud and proud on social media. Ahead of the party, Jen sizzled in an orange bikini and Dolce & Gabbana kimono as she posed for a series of photos — including one where she went IG official with Ben!

SO nostalgic! J.Lo appeared in several photos alongside then fiancé Ben Affleck for his March 2003 ‘Vanity Fair’ cover and it turns out they still love the gorgeous photo.

Jennifer Lopez, 52, and Ben Affleck, 48, love old school Bennifer just as much as the fans! While posing up a storm in her orange bikini, eagle eyed fans caught a curious bit of a black-and-white photo located behind J.Lo — and it turns out the image is one from Ben’s March 2003 Vanity Fair cover. While Ben appeared on the magazine solo, famed photographer Annie Leibovitz also captured a few iconic Bennifer shots — including one of the two riding a motorcycle — see the side-by-side photo here.

The image appeared to be part of the decor aboard the $130 million yacht the “Do It Well” singer and The Town actor are vacationing on in St. Tropez, France. In the photo, Ben rides his motorcycle in a black t-shirt and sunglasses as Jen, cozy in a white sweater, jeans and aviator frames, hugs him from behind. The pair look so elated and happy in the professional image, which was taken several months after Ben popped the question in Nov. 2002. Her massive pink diamond (worth $2.5 million) would have been present at the time, however, her left hand was hidden behind Ben’s shirt.

“OMG she brought it on the boat!” one fan squealed on Instagram. “God bless Jennifer for this,” another posted, clearly loving the throwback moment, while a third was in disbelief. “I cannot believe she framed this and brought it to France,” they posted.

Ben and J.Lo are seemingly having the trip of a lifetime as they soak in the sights of southern France. Jen used the bucket list trip as an opportunity to finally go Instagram official with their rekindled romance in the same bikini set of photos, taken by pro photographer Ana Carballosa. Bennifer, as they’re affectionately called, only had eyes for each other in the steamy snap which Jen captioned “5 2…what it do.”

Alex was surrounded by multiple gorgeous women, who stunned in bikinis and one-piece swimsuits, while he went shirtless for the outing on the French Riviera.

The MLB legend, who will celebrate his 46th birthday next week, was seen using an inflatable slide off the side of the boat, and was later spotted rinsing off in an outdoor shower.

She is looking to be with family and Ben, have a great meal and just take the day to relax since the rest of her year is usually devoted to work,” the insider told HL. “They are looking to travel a little more and they will celebrate both their big days as the summer continues. Jen also isn’t expecting any lavish gifts, she just wants to be as low key as possible,” the source also told us.

Jennifer Lopez is set to celebrate her 52nd birthday, however it’s going to be a low-key affair, with her former flame Ben Affleck and her family.

Jennifer Lopez, 51, certainly knows how to celebrate in style, however her 52nd birthday isn’t going to be a flashy affair. The chart-topper, who rekindled her romance with ex-fiance Ben Affleck, 48, will be spending the day with those closest to her, a source told HollywoodLife exclusively. “Jen is going to keep her birthday very chill. She is looking to be with family and Ben, have a great meal and just take the day to relax since the rest of her year is usually devoted to work,” the insider explained.

They added, “There really is not going to be a big to do because Ben’s birthday is right around the corner and they are looking to travel a little more and they will celebrate both their big days as the summer continues. Jen also isn’t expecting any lavish gifts, she just wants to be as low key as possible.” Another source close to the “Dear Ben” singer said she is prioritizing family time this year.

“Jen has so much on her plate at the moment that she’d rather keep the celebrations to something more low-key this time. She’s being really easygoing about the whole thing and would rather keep it to a group of her close friends, her kids, Ben, and she’ll celebrate throughout the weekend,” they told HL, adding, “Jen loves spending time at home with her family, but she also loves getting dressed up and heading out for the night so she plans on mixing it up and just having fun with it.”

An additional source also told HL that Jen “doesn’t have any big plans” this year. “She’s looking forward to being with a few close friends, family, and of course Ben. Lately she has been incredibly busy so she is soaking up the down time while she can and is excited to have a chill moment with the ones closest to her.” The couple, who recently appeared in an IG snap with actress Leah Remini, certainly seem to be going strong.
While Jen hasn’t directly talked about her rekindled romance with Ben — whom she was engaged to from 2002 to 2004 — she has hinted at it in several recent interviews. “I’m always trying to grow and evolve and become more fully myself and true to myself,” she said while talking with Ebro Darden on Apple Music 1 on Monday, July 12 about “Cambia el Paso,” her new Spanish song.  “And once I realized that, things happen. Things happen that you don’t expect to ever happen. I mean, once you get good, once you get to the point where you’re like, ‘This is not right for me, or this doesn’t feel good, or I need to make an adjustment here. This is not really about anybody else but me.”

Britney Spears shared some of her hopes and dreams in her latest dancing video, admitting she’s not going to ‘settle’ as she showed off her new ‘kicks.’

Britney Spears, 39, is staying positive through her conservatorship drama — taking to Instagram to share updates on what she’s going through. The pop star confessed that she even “dreams” of having a “six pack” just like the incredible Jennifer Lopez, 51. “So what do you guys do to keep your dreams alive???? Just curious cause at this point I’m not sure it’s a good idea to listen to advice from some people,” she began, making a clear reference to a previous post where she said her conservatorship agreement “crushed” her dreams.

“Maybe I’ll just be nice and plant here and keep my dreams alive by thinking about visiting St. Tropez with @cher and eating ice cream … She was one of my favorite singers as a kid and I loved to dress up as her,” the Louisiana went on. “And thinking about having a six pack like @jlo … Lord she’s so inspiring in her new video,” she added, nodding to Jen’s ultra-sexy new video for “Cambia El Paso.” In the video, J.Lo rocks a sequin bikini and daisy dukes as she dances and drinks tequila on a Miami beach.

Britney looked incredible herself as she danced in her living room, rocking a white crop top and black short shorts and a fresh new pair of sneakers. “Yesterday I realized all my tennis shoes were gone … I like them because I dance three hours most days and my feet hurt so I put tennis shoes on so my feet feel nice … well all of mine are old so I ordered four new pairs and they came in five weeks ago but they were all too big so I’ve been without them for a long time,” she told her millions of fans.

The pop star, who has been actively fighting her father Jamie Spears, 68, in court and trying to end her legal arrangement, revealed she pulled a “Carrie Bradshaw” and “ordered a bunch” of new shoes. “My assistants HUMBLING APPROACH why don’t you just see what you can find in your closet DID NOT WORK ANYMORE … I chose to BLOW and guess what … my feet are soaring these days … I’m not gonna stop buying tennis shoes and heels ever !!!! I’m not gonna settle and considering the other day I said I feel like I’m just getting here … THAT’S AN UNDERSTATEMENT,” she declared.

During her recent back-to-back court testimonies, Britney revealed she was not allowed to have her boyfriend Sam Asghari, 27, “drive” her, and had also been unable to receive grooming treatments such as manicures, pedicures and hair styling. She also alleged that she was unable to remove an IUD to have a third child with her boyfriend, who she met on the set of the “Slumber Party” music video, as well as hire a lawyer of her choice (a decision that she was finally able to make after her second testimony). Despite all of the hardships she’s going through, fans were elated just days ago when Britney was spotted driving a white Mercedes-Benz with Sam riding passenger.

“It’s been a while since I drove alone and well let’s just say it’s a DIFFERENT BALLGAME cause I’m not sure this stadium is gonna be anywhere near America,” Britney write in the lengthy caption, describing her shoes as “PUMPED UP KICKS.” She added, I know I’m a kid at heart !!!! After cleaning my cherry floors I did my own version of play…Again this is me with hope … love … and intention … by the way I do intend on going to the ball after I clean my house!”

Marc Anthony is ‘very close’ with ex Jennifer Lopez and has specific feelings about her romance with Ben Affleck as they continue to co-parent their 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme, together.

When it comes to Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck‘s second chance at a relationship, Marc Anthony, 52, is fully supportive of it. The singer, who was married to the 51-year-old “If You Had My Love” crooner from 2004 until 2014, wants her to be “happy” as they continue being “friends” and raise their 13-year-old twins Max and Emme around Miami, FL and Los Angeles, CA.

“Marc just wants Jennifer to be happy. He doesn’t care who she is with or where she is living,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “He’s fine with her spending more time in L.A. and they’ll have an arrangement for the kids that works. They support each other’s wants and needs and make it work.”

“They’re very close and act like the best of friends,” the source continued. “They are a family unit for everything. They have such a healthy, open relationship and tell each other a lot. He looks at this as if Ben makes her happy, then she should be with Ben. He wants her to live a life that brings her happiness and he really means that. All exes should be like them!”
Jennifer and 48-year-old Ben have seemed inseparable since rekindling their flame earlier this year. They were recently spotted house hunting in the Santa Monica area in Ben’s black Mercedes-Benz. The lovebirds were joined by Max and Emme and the outing was the second time they were seen searching for houses together. During the first time, they were looking around in the ritzy Holmby Hills neighborhood and were even spotted sharing a sweet kiss while in their car.

Jennifer and Ben were previously engaged from 2002 until 2004, when they were nicknamed “Bennifer” by the public. After their split, the former went on to marry Marc while the latter ended up marrying and later divorcing Jennifer Garner, with whom he now has kids, Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9. Before J.Lo and Ben’s latest house hunting trips, the Enough star was also seen getting a tour of a private school in the L.A. area, leading many to believe she’s moving to take the next step with Ben.

From Holmby Hills to Santa Monica! Ben Affleck drove his Mercedes-Benz as J.Lo rode passenger during their latest house shopping excursion.

As their romance continue to heat up, Ben Affleck, 48, and Jennifer Lopez, 51,  were spotted looking at Los Angeles area homes once again! The couple were spotted driving around the oceanfront Santa Monica on Friday, July 16 in Ben’s black Mercedes-Benz. Both windows were rolled down as they made their way around the neighborhood to look at homes with her twins Max and Emme, 13, in tow.

The outing marks the second time Bennifer house hunted in a week, following their recent tour of several mansions in the ritzy Holmby Hills neighborhood. During the tour, Ben and J.Lo even stopped to share a sweet kiss in his car! The pair were also joined by realtor, who drove ahead of them in a black Range Rover. Among the three mansions they looked at, one was a 31,000 sq. foot home worth a hefty $65 million!

Currently, both Ben and J.Lo have homes in Los Angeles: Jennifer has a residence in the Bel-Air neighborhood, while Ben resides in near Pacific Palisades and Brentwood, where he’s often spotted out and about. It’s unclear if the pair are looking to move in together or if one or the other is looking to upgrade — but Bennifer fans would certainly be thrilled to see these two taking the next step! In recent weeks, both Ben and J.Lo have been spotted leaving each other’s homes after sexy sleepovers — including after their romantic dinner date at Avra!

Amid Bennifer’s house shopping, Ben’s ex Jennifer Garner, 49, is building a new home of her own. The Alias alum was spotted checking out the construction site with her two younger kids Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9, on the same day. Garner was all-smiles as she shared a laugh with her son and daughter outdoors, staying casual in a gray t-shirt, sneakers and black jeans. In the last month, Ben and J.Lo have also introduced each other to their kids: Emme and Max looked like she had a blast with Samuel at Universal studios and in the Hamptons.

The Wedding Planner star rocked her signature gold wire frames in the photo, going for a square shaped, oversized pair along with her silver hoop earrings. She kept cool in the balmy Los Angeles heat with a white tank top, keeping her highlighted, shoulder-length hair down in a loose curl. Meanwhile, Emme was still rocking her bright blue hair, which matched her baby blue collared button down shirt. The teen, who has a twin brother Max, added a white t-shirt and earrings to the look. Despite being a teen, she appeared to be sitting on her mom’s lap for the sweet moment!

Jennifer has had a busy last few days, which included several outings with both her twins and Ben. The singer and her former fiancé (and now rekindled beau) were spotted house hunting in the Los Angeles area earlier this week, stopping to share an intimate kiss as they drove behind a realtor in Mercedes-Benz! The who, who were set to be married back in Sept. 2003, looked so in love as cameras caught the moment thanks to their rolled down windows.

Emme has also hung out with Ben several lates lately, including at  Universal Studios where she, her mom and The Town actor braved the thrilling Jurassic Park ride! Emme was all-smiles as she made her way down the massive 85′ foot drop, wearing a plastic poncho to avoid getting soaked (as did Ben and J.Lo). Just a day after, Jennifer and Ben weren’t shy about PDA as they snuggled up for a romantic stroll near her Hamptons, New York estate in coordinated cream outfits.

“[Ben and J.Lo’s] connection is very real and they’re dedicated to making this relationship work,” a source close to Bennifer spilled to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY last week. “Jen loves vacationing at her home in the Hamptons during the summer, but since Ben lives in LA where his kids are, she’ll be splitting her time between the two coasts so they can spend as much time together as possible,” they also added.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck shared an intimate moment in the actor’s Mercedes-Benz as they checked out a reported $65 million home.

Ben Affleck, 48, and Jennifer Lopez, 51, were spotted showing some PDA in Los Angeles! The couple shared an intimate kiss while checking out some mansions for sale in the Holmby Hills neighborhood on Thursday, July 15 in video and photos obtained by TMZ. Ben drove his Mercedes-Benz behind a realtor, who was in a Range Rover, as they viewed various homes — including a 31,000 sq. foot one that’s worth a whopping $65 million. Jen wore a cream sweater and her large diamond stud earrings, which appeared to be about two carats (and the same ones she wore out to Avra).

A few days prior, Bennifer shared another sweet moment while driving! Ben took his eyes off the road to gaze at his gorgeous rekindled flame on Tuesday, July 13. The on-again couple were stuck in a Los Angeles traffic jam as Ben drove down the iconic Sunset Boulevard, keeping the windows of his black SUV rolled down for some fresh air. Perhaps out of frustration, J.Lo appeared to let out a sigh as Ben stopped to soap in her beauty.

The Oscar winner was casual in a black t-shirt, while Jennifer stayed cool in a white tank top. The “Dear Ben” singer kept her hair up in a bun, allowing her curtain-style bangs to gently frame her face. She finished her look with a pair of wire sunglasses and gold hoop earrings. It’s unclear where the pair were headed, but the traffic didn’t seem to be bothering Ben in the least.

The couple have been inseparable in recent weeks, hanging out with their kids around Los Angeles and near Jen’s estate in the Hamptons! Ben’s son Samuel, 9, joined Jen’s twins Max and Emme, 13, for an action-packed day at Universal Studios two weeks ago. Just days later, the kids were spotted at a blended family hangout with Ben and J.Lo at the Brentwood Country Mart — an outdoor shopping mall that The Town actor is regularly spotted at with his kids.

While Jennifer hasn’t outright talked about her rekindled romance with Ben — whom she was engaged to from 2002 – 2004 before calling off the nuptials and splitting — she has hinted at it in several recent interviews. “I’m always trying to grow and evolve and become more fully myself and true to myself,” she Maid In Manhattan star said while talking with Ebro Darden on Apple Music 1 on Monday, July 12 about “Cambia el Paso,” her new Spanish language song.  “And once I realized that, things happen. Things happen that you don’t expect to ever happen. I mean, once you get good, once you get to the point where you’re like, ‘This is not right for me, or this doesn’t feel good, or I need to make an adjustment here. This is not really about anybody else but me,” she went on.

“Once you do that, stuff starts falling into place. And I think that’s how you should process this moment that I feel again. And then it always shows up in the music,” she added, subtly hinting at her split from Alex Rodriguez, 45. “Sometimes you have to change direction, even though that might be painful or it might seem weird to other people. It’s really just about who you are and what feels right to you, and that’s what it’s about.”

After calling it quits with Alex Rodriguez and rekindling her romance with Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez said she’s realized that you need to sometimes ‘change direction’ to find happiness.

“I’m always trying to grow and evolve and become more fully myself and true to myself,” Jennifer Lopez said while talking with Ebro Darden on Apple Music 1 on Monday (July 12). J.Lo., 51, spoke about her new collaboration with Rauw Alejandro, “Cambia el Paso” (translation: “Changing The Path”), and how she’s changed her own “path” in recent months. While she didn’t specifically name her split from Alex Rodriguez and rekindled romance with Ben Affleck, she did say that during this recent “moment” in her life, she realized that “I was good on my own and happiness starts within me.”

“And once I realized that, things happen,” added Jennifer. “Things happen that you don’t expect to ever happen. I mean, once you get good, once you get to the point where you’re like, ‘This is not right for me, or this doesn’t feel good, or I need to make an adjustment here. This is not really about anybody else but me.’ Once you do that, stuff starts falling into place. And I think that’s how you should process this moment that I feel again. And then it always shows up in the music. Sometimes you have to change direction, even though that might be painful or it might seem weird to other people. It’s really just about who you are and what feels right to you, and that’s what it’s about.”

Jennifer also told Ebro that she’s doing “really good” and that she’s happy that the world is “getting back to normal” following the COVID-19 lockdowns. “I know we still have to be careful and everything, but that is feeling really good to me,” she added. “I’m getting back to work a little bit. I know that was hard for us workaholics to be home for a year-and-a-half and not doing anything. But my kids are amazing, getting way too big for my taste. They’re becoming their own little adults. They turned 13 this year. Family’s good. Everything is just amazing. And I feel great. Everything is beautiful.”

Jennifer and A-Rod, 45, announced their split in April 2021 after four years together and a two-year engagement. Two weeks after the announcement, Page Six reported that she and Ben, 48, were hanging out again. “Bennifer” reunited again a few weeks later for a Montana vaycay in May, and ever since, the romance has been full steam ahead. Most recently, J.Lo was caught liking a photo of Ben on a “Bennifer” stan account, indicating that she’s happy that fans are happy for this rekindled romance.

“There’s been so many times in my life where I have not felt happy, just like anybody else,” Jennifer told Ebro during the Apple Music 1 conversation. “And I think I’m good at hiding that from the public because I don’t feel like that’s their burden to carry. I don’t put that on them. It’s show business. I put my best foot forward. I’m my best self every time I am out there, because I feel like people need that too. That’s my responsibility as an artist, is to inspire and to help people think and grow about their own lives.”

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are the most stylish couple around! The duo hit the town for dinner after a sexy photoshoot earlier that day.

Rihanna, 33, and A$AP Rocky, 32, enjoyed some alone time after a day on set. The hip-hop power couple were spotted heading to dinner in the Big Apple on Saturday, July 10 after a photoshoot earlier that same day. Rihanna looked drop dead gorgeous in a sheer black bra — likely from her own Savage X Fenty lingerie label — underneath a pinstripe blazer for the romantic dinner date.

She paired the perfectly tailored jacket with a matching, cropped pant and a gold pair of pointy, sling-back pumps. Always on trend, Rihanna accessorized with a gold coin necklace and ’80s inspired snake chain (just like Jennifer Lopez was in Los Angeles), opting to keep her hair styled in a short, chic bob. The Fenty Beauty CEO finished her look with a pop of red lipstick and a bold, black eyeliner.

A$AP went totally opposite of his girlfriend with a colorful ensemble. The “Fashion Killa” rapper opted for a military green sweater vest adorned with orange stripes on the bottom and purple details, along with a pair of loose fitting neon orange trousers. He completed his look with an interesting pair of black boots with patent-leather turquoise paneling, as well as diamond stud earrings and a silver bracelet. At one point, A$AP appeared to take a puff out of his e-cigarette.

The pair were surrounded by security as they stepped out to the eatery after an hours-long photoshoot. Rihanna sizzled in multiple looks on-set for the unknown project, including an ultra-sexy brown leather bustier, shearling jacket and straight leg pant. She was all-smiles as she held hands with the Manhattan based rapper on-set, looking so in love! The “Problems” rapper was also dressed for the shoot in an all-black quilted look, consisting of pants and a button down bomber, as well a belt with gold details.

Back in January, sources spilled to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that the Barbadian singer wanted A$AP to be her “final” relationship. “Rihanna falls in love fast with who she dates as she really wants her current boyfriend to be her final boyfriend,” they revealed. “She only has vibes for who she is dating and no one can ever break that but the person she is dating and as of right now her relationship with A$AP is solid.”

After checking out a nearby Los Angeles private school, J.Lo headed to a family dinner with her twins Max and Emme.

Jennifer Lopez, 51, enjoyed some one-on-one time with her kids, son Max and daughter Emme, 13. The “Get Right” singer was spotted exiting a black SUV with Max at a Beverly Hills restaurant on Saturday, July 10 where they met his twin sister inside. Jennifer looked fresh off the runway in a breezy white dress with a one strap, asymmetrical top by A.L.C. — perfect for the California heat wave!

She added a pair of Gucci’s “Carolina Crystal” wedge shoes to the summer-ready ensemble, finishing the look with some wire sunglasses from Quay, reminiscent of her “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” music video. Jen finished her outfit with a knit Valentino stud bag and jewelry, including a sparkly diamond pendent necklace and ’80s inspired gold snake chain. Earlier in the day, she was spotted touring a west side area private school with Max, and was seemingly sporting the same slicked back ponytail for dinner.

The twins split their time in Miami and Los Angeles, where their mom owns homes in the Star Island and Bel-Air neighborhoods respectively, but it appears the Maid In Manhattan actress plans to move to L.A. full-time. Boston native Ben Affleck, 48, retains his primary residence in the Brentwood area, sharing co-parenting duties of kids Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 49.

Ben has been spending time with Jen’s twins in the last month, starting with a birthday dinner for her sister Lynda Lopez at Nobu Malibu. Since, he’s been spotted with them at Universal Studios and the Brentwood Country Mart (also with Samuel) as well as in the Hamptons.

Although Jennifer still seems to be between homes — including her east coast estate — the rekindled couple are committed to making their “bi-coastal” romance work. “Jen loves vacationing at her home in the Hamptons during the summer, but since Ben lives in LA where his kids are, she’ll be splitting her time between the two coasts so they can spend as much time together as possible,” sources told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY.  “Jen was really looking forward to introducing Max and Emme to Ben and his kids, and it’s been a very natural transition for their families,” the source also spilled.

Jennifer Lopez appears to be looking at schools in Los Angeles, where beau Ben Affleck lives full-time, for her twins Max and Emme.

Jennifer Lopez, 51, splits her time between Los Angeles and Miami — but it seems more and more like she’s planning to be in California full-time where rekindled love Ben Affleck, 48, resides. The “Dear Ben” singer was seen with son Max, 13, visiting a west side area private school on Friday, July 9. The stylish star rocked a pair of ripped skinny jeans and thin turtleneck for the outing, adding a black “CC” belt from Chanel. Her daughter Emme, also 13, didn’t appear to be present for the visit.

Never far from her Hermès bags, Jen grabbed a smaller black crocodile Birkin to match the belt, finishing the ensemble with a denim blue pump and her go-to wire shades. She kept her highlighted hair back in a sleek ponytail as she made her way around the outdoor property with son Max trailing behind. The 13-year-old was casual in shorts, a baseball cap and graphic t-shirt that read, “Just S’More Minutes” with a controller.

Just a month ago, Jennifer was spotted touring the same school and one other amid speculation she would make Los Angeles more of her permanent home base. She owns a home in the ritzy Bel-Air neighborhood, where Ben has frequently been spotted leaving, in addition to a $32 million house on Miami’s exclusive Star Island. She has also been renting an $18 million beach front mansion that Ben visited in May.

While school won’t be back in session for a few weeks, Bennifer sources told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY the couple are making their “bi-coastal” romance work this summer. “Their connection is very real and they’re dedicated to making this relationship work,” a source close to the pair, who were engaged from 2002 – 2004, told HL. “Jen loves vacationing at her home in the Hamptons during the summer, but since Ben lives in LA where his kids are, she’ll be splitting her time between the two coasts so they can spend as much time together as possible,” they also told us.

Recently, the This Is Me…Then singer opened up about her iconic 2002 album — which was dedicate to Ben — in an interview about her latest Spanish single. “When I listened to that [album] on many, many different levels, those songs are more relevant today than they even were then,” she said on July 5. “It was a real pure moment in time. And that music, when it’s important, it never goes away…love, it just doesn’t go away. It’s just there,” she also explained, declining to mention Ben by name. Notably, he appeared in the video for lead single “Jenny From The Block,” and she also penned tracks “Dear Ben,” “The One” and “Baby I Love U!” for the Pearl Harbor actor.

After their recent Hamptons getaway, a source tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are actively making summer plans.

Jennifer Lopez, 51, and Ben Affleck, 48, are keeping the momentum going this summer. While Ben lives in Los Angeles full-time and J.Lo has a home in Bel-Air, the Bronx native also spends time in Miami and at her Hamptons estate in the warmer months — but sources tell HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that Bennifer will plan around their travel. “Their connection is very real and they’re dedicated to making this relationship work,” a source close to the formerly engaged couple tells HL.

Recently, the pair were spotted celebrating the 4th of July Weekend back east, looking so in love as they snuggled in coordinated outfits on a beachside walk! “Jen typically spends the summer at her vacation home in Southampton so while she and Ben were having a blast with their kids at Universal Studios in LA, her summer home in Long Island was being prepared for her arrival the next day,” the source explained.

“Jen loves vacationing at her home in the Hamptons during the summer, but since Ben lives in LA where his kids are, she’ll be splitting her time between the two coasts so they can spend as much time together as possible,” they also added. Ben has been comfortably hanging out with Jen’s twins Max and Emme, 13, who she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, in recent weeks: the Oscar winner was first spotted with her kids at a Nobu birthday dinner for Jen’s younger sister Lynda Lopez in May. The twins were present once again at Universal Studios along with Ben’s son Samuel, 9, via his former marriage to Jennifer Garner, 49, marking a big step for Bennifer!

Jennifer once again joined the father-son duo — along with Emme — on an outing to one of The Town actor’s go-to Los Angeles spots: the Brentwood Country Mart just a day ago. So far, introductions to each other’s kids has gone smoothly, per the source. “Jen was really looking forward to introducing Max and Emme to Ben and his kids, and it’s been a very natural transition for their families,” the insider also says. “She loves how Ben is protective of her and the kids when they’re all out in public and being with him feels like no time has passed [since they were together].”

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are getting even more serious in their relationship, and are preparing to spend more time in Los Angeles together

Jennifer Lopez51, and Ben Affleck, 48, are moving “full steam ahead” in their rekindled romance, a source close to the “Let’s Get Loud” singer tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. The pair are planning to spend much more time in Los Angeles, and the relationship is very “different” from when they first dated back in the early 2000s.

J.Lo and Ben have been getting pretty serious, and it sounds like Jennifer is really committed to their second go-around. “Bennifer is moving full steam ahead,” our source adds. “Everyone around her especially can’t believe this is actually happening. But when she said she was done with [Alex Rodriguez], everyone knew she meant it. She’s given ending that relationship zero second thought and hasn’t looked back,” the source said.

Ben and J.Lo have had plenty of romantic rendezvous and sleepovers since re-sparking their relationship in April, but the source says the couple has even more plans to spend time in Los Angeles, maybe even at a favorite luxury hotel. “She’s been spending more time, with plans to continue to do so, in L.A. She’s even discreetly been in and out [of town]. She likes to stay at The Pendry with him and goes there multiple times a week to try and not be seen. Nobody knows why when they both own homes here, but she does,” the source said.

Regardless of where they go, Bennifer seem perfectly content amidst their rekindled relationship, and are both putting in the work to make the relationship last. “It’s already much different this time around and they both seem very happy. They’re both giving this relationship another very solid try and they’ve both made it clear they’re not taking any BS and taking this seriously. Ben is very attentive and loving to her,” our insider explains.

It’s not surprising that Ben and J.Lo both seem incredibly happy together. The couple was most recently spotted out on a walk in the Hamptons over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. The pair were also adorable when they took J.Lo’s twins Emme and Max and Ben’s son Samuel out on a family outing to Universal Studios in Los Angeles before the trip.

Katie Holmes can do it all! The A-lister proved she’s still got it, when she shared a pic of herself doing a backbend in a pair of black leather pants.

Katie Holmes is a woman of many talents! The actress and fashion designer has clearly been working on her flexibility, sharing a pic of herself doing a backbend while on the set of a photoshoot. The Dawson’s Creek alum rocked a pair of black leather pants and a black blouse, along with a pair of black, strappy pumps for the shoot with photographer David Alexander Flinn. Certainly an impressive move!

The post comes just weeks after Jennifer Lopez‘s ex-fiance Alex Rodriguez was spotted exiting Katie’s apartment building. Nevertheless, Katie’s rep explained that the former MLB star was not visiting her. “She doesn’t know him,” a rep for the actress told E! News. Considering Alex and Katie are both newly single, fans were quick to speculate if something was going on between them after the photos of him at her building surfaced. Only time will tell!

Katie recently praised her “talented” ex-boyfriend, Emilio Vitolo Jr., 33, almost one month after they called it quits. The 42-year-old actress spoke out ahead of their short film, Almost A Year premiering at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival. “‘ALMOST A YEAR @tribecafilmfestival. I am so excited for the start of the @tribecafilmfestival today!!!!!” she captioned a June 8 Instagram post. “I am so honored to have been a part of the making of ALMOST A YEAR which is premiering at #Tribeca2021 as part of #TribecaAtHome tickets.”

She added, “Congratulations to the very talented and amazing cast @eveclindley @emiliovitolo @lilmitz_ and director @jamiesonbaker.” It seems the duo, who dated for roughly eight months from September 2020, have remained on good terms. Katie served as a producer on the film, which is set amid the COVID-19 pandemic, while Emilio was the leading man.

Of course, fans of Katie would recall the news that she and Emilio, who were no strangers to PDA, had ended their romance. “The pair have parted ways amicably but remain friends,” a representative for Katie told Us Weekly. A source also told the outlet, “Their relationship fizzled. They figured out they’re better off as friends … There’s no drama that went down with the breakup and in fact, they’re still friends.”

The album, which is set to celebrate its 19th anniversary in November, includes the love anthems ‘Dear Ben’, ‘The One’ and ‘I’m Glad’ for rekindled beau Ben Affleck.

Jennifer Lopez, 51, has a roster of successful albums — but one remains near and dear to her heart: 2002’s This Is Me…Then. The 13 song project was dedicated to then-boyfriend and rekindled beau Ben Affleck, 48, with a slew of songs dedicated to him. “When I listened to that [album] on many, many different levels, those songs are more relevant today than they even were then,” the Bronx native revealed in a new interview with Apple Music. “It was a real pure moment in time. And that music, when it’s important, it never goes away…love, it just doesn’t go away. It’s just there,” she added.

Several songs in particular were about Bennifer‘s initial romance, most obviously the track “Dear Ben,” as well as “The One,” (which has two versions) “Baby I Luv U!” and her smash single, “I’m Glad.” Of course, The Town actor infamously co-starred in the “Jenny From The Block” video, which served as the lead single for the LP. Directed by Francis Lawrence, the video was aimed at mocking the intense press coverage of them at the time.

Back in 2002, Ben reportedly proposed to Jen at his mom’s home in Boston while “I’m Glad” played in the background. Notably, Jennifer opted not to sing live often: the Troy Oliver and Cory Rooney produced track was left out of the set list for her Las Vegas All I Have residency. She recently included the song, however, during her performance at Global Citizen’s VAX Live concert, where Ben and her mom Guadalupe Rodriguez, 75, were in attendance. Amid Bennifer’s recent reunion, This Is Me…Then re-entered the charts — which was something Jen wasn’t expecting.

“When it entered the charts again, after 18 years, I was like, okay. You realize that it’s such a personal journey that people are on with you,” Jennifer explained, subtly referencing her and Ben’s second chance romance. “They made me go back and listen to that record. I hadn’t listened to it in so long,” she revealed. In celebration of the album’s unexpected recent success, she also took to Instagram to post an epic round-up video of moments from the era.

“ll of my albums are very special to me, but This Is Me…Then is my favorite album I’ve ever done…so far!” she wrote in her Instagram caption at the time. “I know a lot of you have heard me say that before, so in honor of my #JLovers helping it re-enter the album charts AGAIN after 19 years…here is a lil #TBT,” she added.

During the Apple interview, Jenner talked about her new Spanish language track “Cambia El Paso” with Rauw Alejandro. Earlier in the week she explained that the song was about “change and not being afraid to take the step” if something doesn’t “feel right” on Sirius XM radio. In the new Apple interview, she revealed she’s “super happy” amid her reunion with Ben and that she’s “never been better.”

“I’m super happy. I know people are always wondering. How are you? What’s going on? Are you okay? This is it. I’ve never been better,” she confessed. “And I want my people who care about me because I care about them so much, to know that I’ve really gotten to a place in my life where I’m great on my own. And I think once you get to that place, then amazing things happen to you that you never imagine in your life happening again. And so that is where I’m at. And I love all the love that’s coming my way right now and all of the, the good wishes. And I just want everybody to know that it’s the best time. It’s the best time of my life,” she added.

Ben and Jen have been inseparable since their romantic getaway to Montana in May: the couple have since hung out in Miami and Los Angeles on various dates, and most recently even introduced their kids! Ben’s son Samuel, 9, from his marriage to ex-wife Jennifer Garner was present at Universal Studios with J.Lo and Marc Anthony‘s twins Max and Emme, 13. The couple have since jetted off to the Hamptons to enjoy their fourth of July weekend.

Alex Rodriguez, 45, is showing off the sweet bond he has with his two daughters in his latest Instagram pic. The doting dad smiled and posed with his arms around pretty teens, Natasha, 16, and Ella, 13, as they all stood in front of a nice house in the background. He wore a dark blue sweater, white pants, and matching sneakers while the girls, who he shares with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis, 48, wore stylish dresses.

Natasha paired a cute denim jacket with a light blue floral dress and blue socks with black and white sneakers. She also had her long hair down and wore earrings. Ella went with a green, blue, and white patterned dress with spaghetti straps and white sneakers. She had her long locks styled into two braids and had sunglasses clipped onto the top of her outfit.

“Friday night date 💙❤️,” Alex captioned the loving snapshot, which was met with a lot of compliments in the comments section. “The best dates!” one follower exclaimed while another wrote, “Such Beautiful young ladies! Happy Fourth of July weekend to you guys! ❤️🤍💙.” A third suggested the former New York Yankees player “take time to focus on yourself and your girls ❤️” and a fourth called the memorable moment “so sweet.”

Alex’s latest photo with his daughters comes just a few days after he made headlines for sharing a different post that included a pic of him, Natasha, and Ella smiling and sitting at a long table for an outside “family” dinner with others. There was a large display of summertime food on the table in front of them, including chicken and vegetables like cucumbers and asparagus.

Alex’s recent hangouts with family have happened in the midst of his ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez, 51, making headlines with her on-again flame Ben Affleck, 48, aka “Bennifer.” The couple was spotted enjoying time with their kids, including Ben’s son Samuel, 9, whom he shares with ex Jennifer Garner, 49, and J.Lo’s 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme, who she shares with ex Marc Anthony, 52, at Universal Studios Hollywood on July 2 and looked like they were having the time of their lives. They rode some of the amusement park rides, including the wet Jurassic Park ride, and stayed close by putting their arms around each other.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez hit up Universal Studios with Ben’s son Samuel and her twins! The photos mark the first time the couple’s kids have been seen together.

Ben Affleck, 48, and Jennifer Lopez , 51, have re-emerged at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, CA — and this time with their kids in tow. The rekindled couple were spotted holding hands at the Hollywood theme amusement park on Friday, July 2 along with Ben’s son Samuel, 9, and Jen’s daughter Emme, 13, and son Max, also 13, per photos from the DailyMail. Notably, this marks the first time Ben and Jen’s kids have interacted (Ben has been seen out, however, with J.Lo’s twins at Nobu). The foursome dared to go on the very wet Jurassic Park ride via photos and video obtained by TMZ — the newly re-opened attraction is considered the crown jewel of the park, which features an 85 foot drop into a large pool! Bennifer sported plastic ponchos to avoid getting soaked as they lined up for the thrill.

J.Lo was casual in a white cropped tank top and loose fitting jeans, opting to keep her highlighted hair in a loose beach wave. She kept her eyes hidden from the sun with a pair of square-shaped wire shades. the “Dear Ben” singer looked like she was having a blast as she laughed and smiled exiting the ride alongside an elated Ben. The Oscar winner, clad in a gray sweatshirt with colorful stripes, appeared to be standing slightly in front of her as they waited in a covered and air-conditioned outdoor queue. The pair sat right next to each other in another image obtained of the ride moving upwards, with Jen sweetly putting her arm around Ben during the anxiety-filled part of the ride (what goes up must come down — and in this case, 85 feet down!).

The sighting marks the first photos of Ben and Jen together since they stepped out for a romantic dinner date at Avra in Beverly Hills. The “Get Right” singer sizzled in a pair of dressy beige shorts by Alexander McQueen, along with a sexy pair of sandals by LaFemme LA and a white blazer. Ben drove the pair in his black Mercedes-Benz — the one he is often seen leaving Jen’s Bel-Air area home in — but they were picked up by chauffeured Rolls Royce at the end of the evening.

Since re-kindling their romance nearly 17 years after breaking off their infamous engagement (which also included her iconic pink Harry Winston engagement ring, worth millions), Bennifer has been inseparable. In a recent interview about a new song, she hinted that the tune was inspired by her split from Alex Rodriguez, 45, and reunion with Ben. “The song is about change and not being afraid to take the step,” J.Lo said. “Like, just take the step, advance — do what you need to do. If something’s not feeling right, whatever it is in your life, just make that move and dance…you gotta live,” the Hustlers actress added.

Violet Affleck proved she’s truly her A-list mom’s mini-me when she stepped out with Jennifer Garner at a Paris train station.

Jennifer Garner has jetted off on a European vacation with her eldest daughter, Violet Affleck. The 15-year-old, whom Jen shares with Ben Affleck, stood even taller than her mom when she was photographed in a Paris train station on July 3, walking alongside the 13 Going On 30 star. The teenager wore a blue, sleeveless jumpsuit with a tie at the waist, along with sneakers and a blue shoulder bag.

She styled her brunette tresses in loose waves which fell just below her shoulders, as she carried an army green jacket. Meanwhile, Jen cut a casual figure in light wash blue jeans, a beige sweater, and black combat-style boots. She also carried a black handbag along with a black backpack, as pulled her hair back into a ponytail and stayed protected with a blue face mask.

The sighting comes just a couple of days after the mother-daughter duo arrived in France, and were photographed waiting for luggage to be unloaded from a car. Violet was seen wearing a floral dress over a white long-sleeve shirt with blue trainers. Meanwhile, Jennifer opted for a striped shirt and white jeans, as she pulled her hair pulled up into a neat bun. Both she and Violet donned protective face masks and sensible shoes. It is still unclear if the European getaway is just a mom-daughter trip or if Jennifer and Ben’s other children – daughter Seraphina, 12, and 9-year-old son Samuel – are set to join the pair in the City of Lights.

As fans would know, this getaway comes as Jen’s ex, Ben, 48, continues to enjoy his rekindled romance with ex-fiance Jennifer Lopez. The “Bennifer” reunion kicked off in May after J.Lo, 51, called it quits with Alex Rodriguez. Shortly afterward, Ben was spotted leaving J.Lo’s house following a sleepover, and he was later seen puffing on a cigarette as he drove a black Mercedes-Benz away from the Bel-Air mansion.

Jennifer Lopez shared some interesting insights about her new song ‘Cambia El Paso’ in a new interview.

Jennifer Lopez has revealed the influences behind her upcoming new song, “Cambia El Paso” — and her comments will evoke the eyeball emoji. J.Lo, 51, collaborated with Puerto Rican singer Rauw Alejandro for the new track, which translates to “change the step,” due out on July 5. In an interview with Sirius XM Radio’s Pitbull’s Globalization on July 1, J.Lo said the ballad is all about “not being afraid” to make new moves in the wake of change.

“The song is about change and not being afraid to take the step,” J.Lo said. “Like, just take the step, advance — do what you need to do. If something’s not feeling right, whatever it is in your life, just make that move and dance.” J.Lo added, For me, because I started as a dancer, dance is life and joy and happiness.” The Hustlers actress added that the track encompasses all of life’s joys. “You gotta live. You gotta be yourself. You got to be happy. And that’s what the record’s about,” she said.

It has been a year of changes for the singer. In April, J.Lo and her fiancé Alex Rodriguez announced the decision to end their engagement after four years together. The two said they were “better as friends and look forward to remaining so” in a joint statement. “We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects,” the statement read. “We wish the best for each other and one another’s children.” Prior to the split, J.Lo and A-Rod were slated for a 2020 wedding, but naturally, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic caused delay.

A month later, J.Lo rekindled her romance with former fiancé Ben Affleck, whom she dated between 2002 and 2004 after meeting on set of their 2003 film Gigli. The two spent some time together in Montana in May, ushering in the revival of Bennifer 2.0 and proving that there is never a dull moment in Hollywood. J.Lo and Ben, 48, have been spotted together a handful of times ever since, but a source previously told HollywoodLife that the two are in no rush for marriage.
“Their relationship is wonderful right now, so they are making the best of it and not allowing any unnecessary drama to creep in,” the source said. “They are busy, they are having fun and when an engagement happens, it will be the right time and a happy time for everyone.”

Post-split, J.Lo rekindled her romance with former fiancé Ben Affleck. The two famously dated (and got engaged) between 2002 and 2004 after meeting on set of their 2003 film Gigli. The return of Bennifer broke the internet and newsstands everywhere in late May: the duo were spotted on vacation together in Montana, ushering in the revival of Bennifer in the zeitgeist. (They have since spent time together in Miami, worn each other’s clothes, and made out during dinner in Malibu.)

As for Alex, he has been linked to Ben’s former flame Lindsay Shookus post-J.Lo split, proving that there’s never a dull moment in Hollywood. (Ben and Lindsay had an on-again, off-again relationship between 2017 and 2019.) The two were spotted together in mid-June, piquing the interest of Bennifer fans; however, the former athlete shut down romance rumors quickly, releasing a statement through his rep. “There is absolutely zero there,” his rep said. “They’ve been friends for 15 years.”
