Have Jennifer Lopez’s Kids Met Ben Affleck?

Jennifer Lopez broke up with Alex Rodriguez in April 2021, and she recently shocked fans by getting back together with Ben Affleck. Lopez and Affleck were together in the early 2000s and even got engaged.

Lopez’s life has changed a lot since she and Affleck first dated 20 years ago. For one thing, she is now a mother to two kids. With Affleck back into her life, some people might wonder if Lopez’s kids have met him yet.

Jennifer Lopez’s kids got along with Alex Rodriguez’s family

Lopez’s two children—twins Max and Emme (born 2008)—got along well with Rodriguez’s family. Rodriguez also has two children around the same age—Natasha (born 2004) and Elle (born 2008). 

Lopez and Rodriguez often shared photos of their blended family on social media.

Lopez even told People in 2018, “I was so loving to his kids and he was so loving and accepting of mine, and they embraced each other right away. [It was like] ‘I get a new bonus brother and sisters to hang out with all the time and it’s nice.’”

Now that Lopez and Rodriguez have broken up, fans will likely no longer see the pair’s blended family together often. Nonetheless, Us Weekly reported that their kids are still close to each other and wanted to spend time together despite their parents’ split.

“They love being together and the weekends away they had been spending together have really sealed the deal,” an insider said, according to Vanity Fair. “Friends say they can see them staying together forever this time around. They are soulmates and always have been.”
