“They love being together and the weekends away they had been spending together have really sealed the deal,” the source said. “Friends say they can see them staying together forever this time around. They are soulmates and always have been.”
Affleck, 48, and the “On The Floor” singer, 51, originally dated in the early 2000s before becoming engaged in 2002. Over 15 years after calling it quits in 2004, the pair reconnected in April following Lopez’s split from former Yankees player Alex Rodriguez.
While Lopez and the Gone Girl actor seem to be jumping right back into their old routine, neither one wants to rush into something they aren’t ready for, according to the source.
Affleck has a family of his own, sharing Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner. The former couple married in 2005 and finalized their divorce over a decade later in October 2018.
“Ben is great with kids and that is what really rekindled J.Lo’s attraction to him. She saw how well he treated and interacted with her kids and fell back in love with him,” the source told Us Weekly.
The update on Bennifer 2.0 comes just days after another source confirmed earlier this week that the Hollywood lovers are indeed really serious about each other.
“J.Lo and Ben are very much a couple and have been telling friends that they’re together” an Entertainment Tonight insider confirmed. “When they first reconnected they had to see if the spark was still there because it had been a while. It was, so now they are both fully in it.”
As the rumorville continues to buzz, it's safe to say that Bennifer is back and better than ever!
