A source tells OK! that their recent holiday was exactly what the two needed as their revamped relationship continues to dominate headlines. “The trip solidified how happy they both are to be back together,” the source dishes. “Jen says the whole vacation was a magical experience from beginning to end.”
The twosome certainly made the most of their trip while celebrating Lopez’s 52nd birthday aboard a luxury yacht. Romance appeared to be in the air when the "On The Floor" singer took to Instagram and shared a shot of herself and Affleck locked in a steamy kiss on their mega cruiser.
One day later, they nearly broke the internet when the lovebirds reportedly sailed from the Mediterranean in St. Tropez, and Affleck, 48, was snapped grabbing Lopez's famous booty — a not-so-subtle nod to her 2002 "Jenny From the Block" music video, which the Way Back actor starred in.
Their love tour wasn't restricted to the high seas — the dynamic duo continued to flaunt their love on land, too. Lopez was spotted shopping on the French Riviera wearing a necklace emblazoned with the actor's name, days before she and her man were spotted strolling hand-in-hand around Capri, Italy, with a group of pals.
Following their trip, the source tells OK! that the couple's loved ones are waiting on standby for word that the Gigli costars are ready to take the next step — again. “Pals are expecting an engagement announcement,” the source spills of the pair, who were together from 2002 to 2004 before going their seperate ways due to media scrutiny. “Jen has zero doubt that Ben is her soulmate, and he’s equally smitten.”
Meanwhile, according to another insider, the two "plan on moving in together very soon.” In fact, the Hustlers star was spotted touring schools in Santa Monica with 13-year-old son Max — she and ex-husband Marc Anthony also share Emme, 13 — last month, as she prepares to relocate from Miami to Los Angeles to be closer to Affleck. (The Argo actor and ex-wife Jennifer Garner share Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9.)
Though some believe that Lopez and Affleck are rushing into things, their inner circle couldn't be more convinced that they belong together. “They’ve fallen even more head over heels in love with each other, if that was even possible,” adds the source. “The intensity and passion they have is very real — and it’s kind of awe-inspiring for their friends to see!”
