Jennifer Lopez confirms relationship with Ben Affleck on Instagram

LOS ANGELES: Pop star-actor Jennifer Lopez has made her relationship with actor-director Ben Affleck Instagram official on her 52nd birthday celebration.

The Hollywood couple has rekindled their romance after almost 20 years and has been spotted by the paparazzi on regular dates in recent months.

Lopez, who celebrated her birthday on a boat Saturday, July 24, 2021, shared a series of pictures clicked by her friend and photographer Ana Carballosa on Instagram.

The last of the four photos was of Lopez and Affleck, 48, sharing a kiss.

“5 2…what it do…” the singer-actor wrote with a heart emoji in the caption.

Lopez and Affleck first met on the sets of comedy movie “Gigli” in early 2002 and got engaged later that year only to part ways in 2004.

The couple were first spotted spending time together again in April, following Lopez’s split from former fiance and professional baseball player Alex Rodriguez.

Affeck previously dated actor Ana de Armas, his co-star of the upcoming movie “Deep Water”, for a year.

On Thursday, actor-activist Leah Remini shared a video from her star-studded 51st birthday bash featuring several photos from the party — including a picture of Affleck with his arms around Lopez and Remini.
