Jennifer Lopez’s life has taken a positive turn in the last year. The singer and actress rekindled her romance with Ben Affleck and the couple tied the knot in July 2022. Along with their marriage, the two stars have also blended their families, including their children.
Lopez is a mother to twins Max and Emme, 14, from her marriage to Marc Anthony, while Affleck shares Violet, Seraphina and Samuel with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner. In an interview with Jason Kennedy on TODAY,
Lopez shared that the process of merging families has been an emotional transition but also her best year since her kids were born. Her co-star in the upcoming romantic comedy “Shotgun Wedding”, Josh Duhamel, also praised Affleck as a talented and dreamy person.
“He’s a sweetheart,” she added.

In 2002, Lopez released the album “This Is Me… Then”, which was created during her relationship with Affleck. She is now set to release a new album titled “This Is Me… Now”, which she claims reflects their personal growth as a couple. Lopez said, “The last time Ben and I were together, to this album, it’s been such a journey.
The thing that I think I’ve been wondering about my whole life is, is love real? Does true love exist? It’s two people kind of coming together and saying, you know, ‘I’m going to be here, no matter what. And we’re going to get through it together.’” Lopez has also stated that their union may not have happened when they initially planned it, but it made sense for it to happen the way it did. In September 2022, she wrote in a newsletter to fans,
“Ben and I laughed the night before about getting married again at our age. We had both been married before and we aren’t exactly kids any more but somehow now seemed like the only age that made sense.”
Recently, Affleck has been in the news for working at a Dunkin’ drive-thru in Medford, Massachusetts, leading many to question why he took the job. When asked about it on TODAY, Lopez joked, “I didn’t blink. I didn’t mean to blink. Stop it! Stop trying to zoom in on my blinks!”
