Could Bennifer 2.0 be sealing the deal in the near future?
The Gone Girl star, 48, and Jennifer Lopez first met in 2002 while filming Gigli, and Affleck proposed in November of that year. They famously postponed their wedding in 2003 before calling it all off in 2004. But after Lopez split from ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez earlier this year, Bennifer has been inseparable.
At the time, Affleck had proposed with a 6.1-carat pink diamond ring by Harry Winston. The rock reportedly cost $2.5 million.
The news that Affleck is eyeing up rings comes after an OK! insider spilled that the lovebirds "will make it official before the end of the year." A source said that the 52-year-old singer "has zero doubt that Ben is her soulmate, and he’s equally smitten."
"Neither Ben nor Jen are messing about here," an OK! insider said. "This isn’t a silly game. If Jen wasn’t serious about Ben, he wouldn’t be having dinner with her kids, mom and sister."
While it might seem that the couple is moving fast after Lopez and the former MLB player called it quits in April, the source said that Bennifer is "picking up where they left off. Jen and Ben both know everything about each other — the good, the bad and the ugly. They are not starting at square one."
The duo was also spotted house hunting in Los Angeles earlier this month. An OK! insider previously spilled that they "plan on moving in together very soon."
Lopez and Affleck were reportedly spotted with their children at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif., to see Hamilton on Friday, August 20, and went to The Magic Castle the next day. An insider told Entertainment Tonight that their families are "spending more and more time together" and getting along "great."
"It's been fun for them to do activities as a blended family and the kids are enjoying getting to know each other better," the insider said. "Jen and Ben are both hands-on parents and their kids are their number one priority, so it's important for them to do things as a unit that make their families happy."
