Jenifer Lopez talks about starting a life with Ben Affleck and their kids, calls it ‘An emotional transition’

In April 2021, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck restarted their 20-year relationship. They got engaged the following year, and they got married in July 2022.

Nearly 20 years after they first called off their engagement, J. Lo and Ben Affleck wed in July 2022, reigniting their romance. The two celebrities merged their entire families, including their kids. With her ex-husband Marc Anthony, Lopez is the mother of twins Max and Emme, who are 14 years old, while Affleck is the father of Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 10, with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

JLo recently promoted her new romantic comedy Shotgun Wedding with Josh Duhamel on the Today show. After being married in July of last year, Lopez talked openly on the show about combining her and hubby Ben’s families and moving in together.


“We moved in together, the kids moved in together. So, it’s been, like, a really kind of emotional transition. But at the same time, like, all your dreams coming true and it’s just been a phenomenal year. Like, my best year, I think, since my kids were born,” she said.

Duhamel also praised Affleck, saying he’s a “dreamboat” who’s “talented.” “He’s dreamy,” Lopez agreed. “He’s a sweetheart,” she added.

Jennifer was questioned about her planning for her wedding to Ben during a press event for her upcoming movie. They chose to elope to Vegas and get married there first due to the stress of having to organise a wedding, she revealed. Lopez gave Ben credit for organising the wedding in Vegas.

The album “This Is Me… Then,” which Lopez recorded while dating Affleck, was released in 2002. She intends to release a new album called “This Is Me… Now,” which she claims captures the development of their relationship.
