Bennifer 2.0 is going strong, in case you needed some reassurance that real love exists.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck‘s rekindled romance has been back on for more than a month now and, by all reports, the reunited couple couldn’t be happier. And for Lopez, at least, the flame never seems to have totally gone out.
“Jennifer always saw Ben as the one that got away,” a source close to the actress told Page Six. “She was crushed after they broke up, though she felt at the time that she had no other choice but to call off their engagement. As hot and heavy as their relationship was, they were on very different paths at the end of it. Jennifer was ready to settle down and have kids, but Ben wasn’t keen on giving up his bachelor lifestyle just yet. In the end, she got tired of waiting for him to come around—even though it broke her heart to end things.”
Speaking to E! News, another source basically the said the reunion was fated and that Affleck has even met (and won over) Lopez’s 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme.
“They are inseparable and it’s going really well. [She] has never been happier and knows it was meant to be,” the E! News source said. “Her kids really like Ben and think he’s funny and fun to be around. He’s totally won the family over with his charm.”
