Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez took the world by storm when they rekindled their romance 17 years after their original relationship ended.
Many fans and even celebrities like Matt Damon have expressed their support for the relationship — but what does Ben Affleck’s ex-wife Jennifer Garner think?
According to a source speaking to Us Weekly, “J.Lo has Jennifer Garner’s seal of approval.”
The insider noted that the two Jennifers have run into each other over the years, and revealed the respect is mutual. “J.Lo thinks Jennifer is a kind and wonderful person and an amazing mother.”
Okay, so Ben Affleck’s ex-wife is supportive of Bennifer 2.0. But, what about Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband Marc Anthony?
Rest assured, he’s okay with it too. “Jen Garner and Marc Anthony are continuing to be supportive and there doesn’t seem to be any ill will across the board,” an insider told ET. “They all just want what’s best for each other and their families.”
Even Affleck and Lopez’s respective children are onboard the Bennifer 2.0 train, ET’s source confirmed. “Their kids just want to see their parents happy and they are what is most important to both of them. J.Lo’s kids are so glad to see their mom so in love.”
Affleck shares three children with Garner: Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9. Meanwhile, Lopez shares 13-year-old twins Max and Emme with Anthony.
As for Lopez’s own mother? She is “thrilled” Ben and Jen are back together, according to People.
With so much support, and with Ben Affleck reportedly spotted shopping for an engagement ring, could it be long before we hear a major announcement from the couple?
After all, Affleck and Lopez couldn’t seem more in love lately. They were positively beaming when they made their red carpet debut as a couple earlier this month at the Venice Film Festival for the premiere of The Last Duel (which Affleck co-wrote and stars in).
And with the recent announcement that Lopez was named Adweek’s 2021 Brand Visionary, Affleck has expressed that he is “in awe” of his girlfriend.
“I am in awe of what Jennifer’s effect on the world is. At most, as an artist, I can make movies that move people. Jennifer has inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country,” Affleck told Adweek.
“That is an effect few people throughout history have had, one I will never know and one I can only stand by and admire with respect.”
