Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are working furiously to make their rekindled romance forever after as they both balance busy work schedules and respective family lives. The star couple stunned fans and Hollywood earlier this year when they rekindled their relationship 17 years after they called off their original engagement back in 2004.
Ben, 49, shares 19-year-old daughter Violet, 12-year-old daughter Seraphina, and nine-year-old son Samuel with ex-wife Jennifer Garner as well. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez, 52, has 13-year-old twin children named Emme and Max with her ex-husband Marc Anthony Muñiz, 53. The two A-list stars are now shaping a delicate and practical balance between seeing their respective children, working on projects, and seeing each other.
Ben has been working on a film titled Hypnotic in Austin, Texas, while Jennifer has been filming the Netflix thriller The Mother in Vancouver, Canada. According to E! News, a source told, “They are both filming during the week on location, but they have met up whenever possible.” “Ben has been in L.A., and J.Lo flew in from Vancouver to spend time with him. They hung out at his house and then left for the airport together on Sunday night. Jennifer Lopez has had her kids visit her in Vancouver, but she is also coming back and forth to L.A,” the source added.
According to the source, Ben Affleck has spent two weeks in LA catching up with his children, but he and Jennifer Lopez also work hard to ensure they go no more than a few days pass without seeing each other. The source continued, “They are working out their schedules so that they can be sure to see each other every few days. Things are good between them, and they are staying connected. They are busy with their projects, but also making time to be together.”
Bennifer was engaged back in 2003 after a year of dating but canceled their planned wedding day due to extreme paparazzi interest. They parted their ways several months later at the beginning of 2004 but started dating again in April this year. Ben is clearly among Jennifer’s biggest fans as he recently gushed to Ad Week that he was “in awe” of her, her achievements, and her impact on the world.
Ben Affleck told the outlet, “All I can tell you is that I have seen first hand the difference representation makes because I have seen, over and over and over and over, women of color approach Jennifer and tell her what her example as a strong woman and a woman succeeding and demanding her fair share in the business world means to them.” “I am in awe of what Jennifer’s effect on the world is. At most, as an artist, I can make movies that move people. Jennifer has inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country,” he continued. “That is an effect few people throughout history have had, one I will never know and one I can only stand by and admire with respect,” Ben added.
