Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck proved they're just as crazy about each other now as they were in the past, in a very public display of their love. The couple's re-coupling has sent fans into overdrive.

Of all the things to come out of this past year, news that one of Hollywood's most iconic couples had reunited was one of the positives. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's relationship has certainly not taken the traditional route but it definitely seems like it was the right one for them.


The couple, aka Bennifer, posed for photographers before sharing a big old smooch at the premiere of The Last Duel. The premiere was held during the 78th Venice Film Festival on Friday September 10, 2021.

Jennifer, aged 52, and Ben, aged 49, looked like a pair of loved-up teenagers and like a day hadn't passed since they began dating nearly 20 years ago. Apart from anything, it's shocking that they've aged at all!

Fans have been kvelling over the two A-listers' re-coupling, which came shortly after Jennifer split from Alex Rodriguez. Alex, who says he's in a great place since the split, was engaged to Jlo before their relationship ended.

Noting how impeccably Ben treated his lady, opening the car door for her and being an all-around gentleman, one user said, "I am sorry but Jennifer Lopez has trained this man to meet her needs. #Bennifer." No shock that she knows how to be treated right as she recently revealed how therapy taught her to 'love herself'.

Dedicated fans have rubbished any nay-sayers who've insinuated their relationship isn't going to work out. One Twitter user said, "THIS IS IT. FOREVER. HE KNOWS IT. #bennifer."

Another added, "Yes I am obsessed with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's reunion. Joy is hard to come by these days alright. I take it where I can get it. #Bennifer"

Although it's relatively early on in their reignited romance, the couple remained close friends over the years. In the years since they parted ways, the couple both had children with previous partners. 

Jennifer's twins, Emme Maribel Muñiz and Maximilian David Muñiz, which she had with former partner Marc Anthony, are now 13-years-old. 

Ben's children  Violet Affleck, Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck, and Samuel Affleck, are 15, 12, and 9 respectively—meaning they're likely to be a perfectly blended family.
