Jennifer Lopez's caressing of Ben Affleck's neck in their first ever TikTok reflects the 'high level of trust' between the married couple, a body language expert has revealed. 

Bennifer has officially made their TikTok debut! 

The A-list couple appeared in their first-ever video together on the video-sharing platform on Sunday, much to the delight of their devout fanbase. The romantic post, which was shared on Jennifer's TikTok, has already amassed over 1 million likes and nearly 15k comments. 

It comes as just another update from the Hollywood pair, who haven't been shy about their relationship since rekindling their love in April 2021. Jennifer and Ben went on to marry in a Las Vegas wedding in July, nearly twenty years after they called off their initial engagement. They hosted an extravagant ceremony and reception at the Batman star's mansion in Savannah, Georgia, the following month, reportedly hosting the event in a barn that had been cleverly converted into a chapel.

In their latest update, Jennifer and Ben can be seen cuddling each other while staring directly at the camera. After a few seconds of intense eye contact, they both break out into toothy smiles. A voiceover from Pink's 2020 song, Try, plays over the sweet clip: "Guys I did it! I found the person that makes me the happiest I have ever been."

While the couple doesn't say anything in the video, their strong feelings for each other are hard to deny.

Author and TV body language expert, Judi James, tells woman&home what their physical closeness could say about their relationship. 

"Their heads are snuggled together but with Jen’s head at the top it looks as though she has instigated the snuggle, especially as Ben’s face shows some sign of being crushed up around the right eye as she presses in," the social behavioral expert explains. "Her fingers look pressed into his neck as though holding him still but the fact he doesn’t move away and that he seems to smile might imply he’s not unhappy with the head-pressing though and this head closeness does signal rather high levels of trust." 

She also reveals that Jennifer's "sweet smile" and partially closed eyes "make her look very much like a woman in love." Meanwhile, Ben, who appears to be chewing gum in the video, "looks very casual relaxed." 

As for the "sweet and childlike" choice of song, Judi says the music "suggests Ben is the man she has been imagining since she was very young, which adds to the air of cuteness and idealism."
