"They don’t want to see the children suffer from a public spat between them. Seraphina and Emme are inseparable, and neither woman would come between their bond," a source revealed of Lopez's kid and Garner's middle child.
“However, Jen and J. Lo have since been able to resolve their differences, for the most part. Seraphina and Emme are super close, so that’s been a huge factor. They realized they had no choice but to bury the hatchet," the insider explained.
The TV star is getting used to the singer, 53, constantly being in the spotlight. “When she’d see her kids photographed out in public with J. Lo, their dad and stepsiblings, Jen thought it felt calculated,” the insider noted of Garner, who also shares Violet, 17, and Samuel, 11, with Affleck, 50.
“Jen values her privacy a lot more than J. Lo," they added. “Jen and J. Lo have more in common than they’d probably like to acknowledge. They’re both career-driven artists and protective moms whose children come first.”
