Ben Affleck Gushes Over Girlfriend Jennifer Lopez At 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards
A supportive beau!
Ben Affleck was spotted in the audience at the iHeartRadio Music Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Tuesday, March 22, cheering on his girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, who accepted the prestigious Icon Award.
The handsome hunk, 49, sat in the front row at the show alongside his 10-year-old son, Samuel, whom he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, and J.Lo's 14-year-old daughter Emme, whom the icon welcomed with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
"I appreciate this so much, so very, very much. I wish I could tell you that awards were the most important to me, but that’s not true," the Hustlers actress, 52, told the audience while accepting her award from host LL Cool J.

As seen in the photos obtained by Page Six, Affleck was grinning from ear-to-ear as he watched his brunette babe take the stage by storm, with Emme also cheering on her mama.
After acknowledging she really appreciated the physical award — joking: "And don’t think that I don’t appreciate the shiny, sparkly things, because I do! I cannot lie, everybody knows that I do" — Lopez explained she does what she does for her fans. "I really do it for you guys."
Lopez added that she gets to do what she loves "most in life" because of her supporters, which is "the most wonderful blessing."
"That’s a gift that you give me and I just want to say thank you for that," the pop icon gushed, noting that her fans made her "dream come true," as she was once just a "little girl growing up in the Bronx" with plans to make it big. "I will always be grateful to each and every one of you for that. And I will never forget it, and I will never, ever take it for granted."
The mother-of-two — who also shares 14-year-old son Maximilian with Anthony — wrapped up her emotional speech by thanking everyone who has "believed in" her over the years. “Thank you for teaching me who I really am. Icon. I can overcome negativity, and so can you, every single moment,” Lopez concluded. “And let me tell you something else… I’m just getting started.”
After taking home the momentous award, Lopez took to her Instagram to offer her 199 million followers a glimpse of her special night, sharing a clip of the end of her acceptance speech, as well as snaps of her performance, where she is seen rocking a sexy black one-piece with cut outs and knee-high boots.
Her A-list boyfriend also dressed up for the occasion, looking sharp in a black button down shirt under a black suit jacket. Affleck looked better than ever on his night out to support his rekindled beau, as his bright smile was on display while watching his girlfriend.

The Deep Water actor and songstress — who were previously engaged in the early 2000s — rekindled their romance in April 2021 following Lopez's split from ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez.
“I don’t think anybody was more surprised than us," the "Let's Get Loud" songstress recently said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show of Bennifer 2.0. "You never could imagine that something like that could happen. It’s a beautiful thing."
The Hollywood lovebirds are more grateful than ever to have been given another shot at love, with them making sure they don't take anything for granted this time around. While the rumor mill has been going into over drive regarding when Affleck plans on getting down on one knee, the duo already made it clear they're in it for the long haul by purchasing a stunning $50 million Bel-Air mansion for their blended family.
