Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck enjoyed Thanksgiving this year as a couple. However, after a busy fall spent shooting upcoming projects, Lopez, 52, was finally able to take some time off to spend Thanksgiving with (Jennifer Lopez current boyfriend) Affleck, 49, and her kids, twins Max and Emme, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
Lopez and Affleck spent the day in Los Angeles, where Lopez flew in to celebrate the holiday after filming the Netflix thriller The Mother in Vancouver this fall. While Affleck joined Lopez for Thanksgiving festivities at her home, he also celebrated the day with his own children. The Batman actor (Ben Affleck Batman) shares daughters Violet, 15, and Seraphina, 12, and son Samuel, 9, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
Meanwhile, Lopez returned to L.A. after an “intense” few weeks. “Jennifer flew back to L.A. from Vancouver to celebrate Thanksgiving with her kids and Ben,” the source tells the People. “The last few weeks have been intense for her.” However, Lopez’s trip comes less than a week after the singer performed her new single On My Way at the 2021 AMAs.
Jennifer Lopez recently released the track last week as part of her new movie, Marry Me, which is set to release on February 11, 2022. “This song is about pushing through old mistakes and finding your destiny,” Lopez told fans while performing On My Way for the first time at Global Citizen Live in September.
Meanwhile, the source adds it hasn’t been easy for Lopez to be working in Canada this fall away from her loved ones, but the Hustlers star is looking forward to some well-deserved time off. “It’s been hard for her to be away from her kids and Ben,” the source explains. “She is very much looking forward to a short break.”
Despite the challenges of their busy schedules, Lopez and Affleck’s relationship is still going strong. “They are doing really well. Jennifer loves being with Ben. She feels it’s truly meant to be,” said the source. Affleck and Lopez are looking forward to spending Christmas together with their families.
