Jennifer Lopez dishes on how Ben Affleck slid into her DMs 20 years later
Los Angeles, California - Singer and actor Jennifer Lopez finally spilled the tea on how her rebooted love affair with her now-husband Ben Affleck came to be after nearly 20 years!
J. Lo finally gave up the goods on Bennifer 2.0 – and it's, as Lizzo would say, "about damn time!"
For her Vogue December feature, Mrs. Affleck revealed that she and the 50-year-old DC star officially got back in touch around the time she split from Alex Rodriguez.
The Let's Get Loud singer explained that Affleck slid into her emails to inform her that a magazine had asked for his comment about her for a profile and "he wanted her to know that he had provided a rave [review]."
From there, the two began regularly chatting, which then led to the pair making secret trips to one another's homes – though they were obliviously caught a few times.
"Obviously we weren't trying to go out in public," J. Lo explained.
"But I never shied away from the fact that for me, I always felt like there was a real love there, a true love there. People in my life know that he was a very, very special person in my life. When we reconnected, those feelings for me were still very real."
Jennifer Lopez talks about blending families while praising Jennifer Garner
The Selena star, who had two wedding ceremonies with the love of her life, also spoke on how the power couple is handling the blending of their very large respective families.
J.Lo has teenage twins Emme and Max from her marriage to Marc Anthony, while Affleck shares Samuel, Violet, and Seraphina with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
"They have so many feelings. They’re teens. But it’s going really well so far," she explained.
"What I hope to cultivate with our family is that his kids have a new ally in me and my kids have a new ally in him, someone who really loves and cares about them but can have a different perspective and help me see things that I can’t see with my kids because I'm so emotionally tied up."
The Hustlers actor went on to praise Affleck's ex-wife Garner, saying that she is "an amazing co-parent" and added that the two work really well together, successfully squashing the rumors that they had any beef.
When it comes to Bennifer 2.0, it's clear that their love don't cost a thing!
