Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez returned to Los Angeles after spending the Fourth of July holiday together, prompting questions about what’s next for the recently rekindled romance between the two stars. 

The duo was spotted returning to California after spending the holiday in the Hamptons with their kids. They kept things low-key with JLo sitting in the back of an SUV sporting brown sunglasses while Affleck donned khaki pants and a gray sweatshirt as he lugged bags for their return trip. 

The Hamptons getaway is the latest jet-setting move from the couple, who rekindle their past romance following her high-profile broken engagement to Alex Rodriguez in April. In addition to the Hamptons trip, they also traveled to Montana earlier this year at the onset of their new romance. Ben And Jen broke off a previous two-year engagement in the early 2000s, but seemed to find each other again in May. 

According to a source close to the couple who spoke with Us Weekly, they seem to be picking up right where they left off and are already having discussions about taking a major next step in their relationship. 

"Ben and Jen are spending almost every night together when they’re not working," the insider shares. "They plan on moving in together very soon."

Although Affleck and Lopez have a past, serious dating history together, many still believe that the romance is moving very fast given how recently she ended things with ARod. When things finished, the duo was in the midst of planning a wedding. However, the source notes that the couple "laugh at anyone who says they’re rushing things." So, it seems that they're content with the current situation and even want to go further by cohabitating as soon as possible. 

The source adds that they mostly care about making sure their kids are comfortable. Affleck shares three kids, Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9, with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. Lopez, meanwhile, shares twins Max and Emme, 13, with ex-husband Marc Anthony

"As far as Jen sees it, she and Ben have their whole lives now to set things up in a comfortable way," the insider told the outlet. "She intends to be an involved stepmom who’s there for Ben in that area, plus she’ll want him to make the same effort with her and Marc’s kids."

Meanwhile, Rodriguez seems to be getting on with his life as well, even if he didn't exactly get distance from his ex. The New York Post reports that he too spent the holiday weekend in the Hamptons, but hung out with rapper Jay-Z as well as a "bevy of beauties" while his ex was getting in some family time with Affleck.

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez Are Reportedly Ready To Take This Major Step In Their Renewed Romance

Yahoo Entertainment 09 July, 2021 - 04:16pm

There have already been clear signs that Affleck and Lopez are getting more and more serious. The two have been photographed out with their family — including Lopez’s 13-year-old twins, Emme and Max (shared with ex-husband Marc Anthony), and Affleck’s nine-year-old son Samuel (shared with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, along with daughters Violet and Seraphina). Plus, the two have been spending as much time together as possible, when their busy schedules allow it.

Thus far, Affleck and Lopez’s renewed romance has taken them to Montana, Miami, and even their respective homes in Los Angeles. Although there hasn’t been much of a sign that Affleck’s two older daughters have spent as much time with Lopez as their younger brother, the seriousness of Affleck and Lopez’s romance could suggest that will occur soon. Still, these two have definitely picked up right where they left off!

Lopez and Affleck’s romance was a storied part of the early aughts. The couple got together in 2002 and quickly became engaged by November of that year. The couple was featured on practically every magazine cover, and tabloids dubbed the pair with the portmanteau “Bennifer.” While the two split in early 2004 and went on to marry new partners and have children, their recent breakups have brought them back together, and longtime fans are eager to see where their romance takes them next!

Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez ‘committed to spending the rest of their lives together

Geo News 09 July, 2021 - 04:16pm

An insider revealed to the outlet that: “The past few months have been a real whirlwind.”

“They’re well aware some cynics still look at it as a big flashy attention grab and roll their eyes at the speed of it all, but it doesn’t faze them one iota. They’re fully committed to taking the next steps and spending the rest of their lives together,” added the insider.

“It feels like they’ve been together again for years, not months. As far as they’re both concerned, they’re just blessed to have found each other and discovered true love, which most people can only ever dream about,” added the source.

“There’s not a single doubt in their mind[s] that this is [not] going to work. Everything that went wrong in the past can only serve them in a positive way this time around,” the grapevine shared. 

Why Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Aren't in a Rush to Move Back in Together

"Ben is very settled in his home and it's close by to his kids," the source explains. "Jennifer's house is also a place she likes being and is a good family home."

The insider notes that their relationship is "going well as is," so the pair sees no need for either of them to relocate anytime soon. The source simply says, "They are both back and forth to each other's homes and live close enough that it's not an issue."

Moreover, the couple gets their fair share of time together, whether it's on a staycation in Miami or going out to dinner with her two kids, Emme and Max.

Most recently, the "Dinero" singer and Gigli actor took off to the Hamptons for a getaway with Jen's children and parents. Over the Fourth of July weekend, they were photographed wearing matching outfits while on a walk at sunset. A source described the outing as a "nice change of scene for them and a great time with friends and family."

Jen herself told Zane Lowe of Apple Music 1 that this year is "the best time of my life." And though she didn't explicitly mention Ben, it's pretty obvious he's been a positive influence on her.

"I'm super happy. I know people are always wondering, 'How are you? What's going on? Are you okay?' This is it. I've never been better," she confessed, adding that she had previously gotten to a point where she was fine on her own. "And I think once you get to that place, then amazing things happen to you that you never imagine in your life happening again. And so that is where I'm at."

While fate played a role in bringing her and Ben together after her split from fiancé Alex Rodriguez, a source previously confirmed Jen left her rental home in Miami so she could be closer to him. The insider said, "She is excited about a fresh start and pursuing things with Ben."

And Ben is putting in the effort, too. In June, an insider said he's "totally won the family over with his charm," including her kids who "think he's funny."

Jennifer Lopez is also teaming up with Netflix for a film adaptation of the bestselling book The Cipher, penned by Isabella Maldonado. Lopez will produce and star in the feature playing FBI Special Agent Nina Guerrera who escaped a serial killer's trap at sixteen. Years later, when she's jumped in a Virginia park, a video of the attack goes viral. Legions of new fans are not the only ones impressed with her fighting skills. The man who abducted her eleven years ago is watching. Determined to reclaim his lost prize, he commits a grisly murder designed to pull her into the investigation...but his games are just beginning. And he's using the internet to invite the public to play along. There are currently two books in the series.

Lopez has a full plate of movies coming down the pipeline, including: Marry Me from Universal Pictures, the tale of a pop star who spontaneously weds a fan during an arena performance; The Godmother, a look at the rise and fall of the late drug lord Griselda Blanco from director Reed Morano at STX; and Shotgun Wedding, about a couple whose destination wedding is highjacked by criminals, co-starring Armie Hammer.

In addition to starring in all these films, Lopez produced them through her company, Nuyorican Prods., which she runs with Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, her former agent, who famously negotiated Lopez's then-record-breaking $9 million salary for a Latina actress on 2001's The Wedding Planner.

Lopez states, "A lot of times, the best person for the job is a woman. Hustlers was a woman director. Marry Me was a woman director. The Godmother is going to be a woman director. It's a great time! I think women have found their voice in a way that they haven't ever before, and that means female storytellers - and telling our stories in our way, from a women's point of view. I think Hustlers would have been a very different movie had it been directed by a man." Keep your eyes peeled for TheCipher in 2022.
