Jennifer Lopez Introduces Adorable New Kitten, Hendrix, As She Prepares To Spend A 'Blended' Christmas With Ben Affleck's Ex Jennifer Garner
Jennifer Lopez has revealed a brand new member of the family — and just in time for the holidays!
The Hustlers actress took to social media to announce she had adopted a sweet-faced, fuzzy bundle of joy only weeks before Christmas.
“Introducing … #Hendrix!!!” she captioned a video of the light-colored kitten peacefully lounging in front of the shimmering golden lights of the pop star's beautiful tree as Christmas music played in the background.
This holiday season is certainly a special one for the "On the Floor" singer. Not only will this be her first Christmas she gets to spend with hunky beau Ben Affleck since their 2004 split, but the pair is also reportedly planning to spend the day with Jennifer Garner as they celebrate with the kids as a blended family.

"Christmas is all about the kids," a source exclusively dished to OK! in November. "Despite being totally opposites, Jennifer Garner and Jennifer Lopez have bonded over the children. It might sound strange to spend the holidays with your ex-husband's new girlfriend, but Jennifer doesn’t care what other people think," the insider continued, adding: “If the kids can get along then why can’t the parents?"
The Justice League actor shares three children with Garner — Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9 — while Lopez has twins — 13-year-old Max and Emme — with her ex Marc Anthony.
"I doubt you are ever going to see Jennifer pop up in a J.LO music video or hanging out at a Versace fashion show together," the insider went on. "Just like the chances of J.LO baking cookies with Jennifer before heading to book club together is very unlikely."
But despite any awkwardness, the two sets of parents reportedly feel very strongly about bonding as a family. Another source recently spilled the A-List couple are "looking forward to their future together," and forming healthy relationships with each other's children is an important part of that process.
"J.Lo has made a big effort to get to know Ben's kids and welcome them into her home and her life," a source told the outlet. "They have spent a lot of time getting to know each other and letting the kids have fun and bond."
