Jennifer Garner enjoyed an afternoon with her 9-year-old son Samuel Affleck. The 13 Going On 30 actress sweetly held her youngest child’s hand as they stopped by a Farmer’s Market in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles on Sunday, Oct. 10. Samuel could be seen holding onto a cream and navy blue colored tote bag for the excursion, perhaps to load up on some fresh baked goodies and other items from the outdoor market.

The 9-year-old was sporting his longer blonde hair and opted to keep his face covered with an orange printed face mask. He matched his mom’s navy blue Patagonia zip-up with his own navy blue t-shirt, which he sported with a cozy pair of green sweatpants. Jennifer also opted for an athleisure vibe, rocking a camo printed pair of leggings and black sneakers. The West Virginia native threw her brunette locks into a high ponytail, also adding a face mask and a black pair of sunglasses.

Ben’s kind words about J.Lo come less than week after the together-again couple stole the show on the red carpet of the Met Gala. While J.Lo initially walked the carpet solo, Ben caught up with the superstar and the two shared a romantic smooch while wearing masks in front of photographers. The outing was actually Bennifer’s Met Gala debut, as the couple never went to the star-studded event together two decades ago.

Since they got back together, Ben has been nearly inseparable from J.Lo. The beloved couple have enjoyed a plethora of vacations and trips together, as well as some family outings with Jen’s kids Max and Emme, 13, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, and Ben’s children Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 8, whom he shares with ex Jennifer Garner.

Ben Affleck took his two daughters for a sweet treat! The actor enjoyed his ice cream in a cone while Seraphina and Violet opted for cups.

Ben Affleck is the best dad ever! The 49-year-old was spotted in the Brentwood area with his girls Violet Affleck, 15, and Seraphina Affleck, 12, enjoying ice cream in a waffle cone on Friday, Sept. 17. Violet and Seraphina also enjoyed a cool treat, opting to keep theirs in easy (and less messy) cups. Ben looked low key and relaxed as he sported a face mask and aviator sunglasses, along with his favorite blue-and-red plaid shirt.

The flannel button down has been sported by the Oscar winner numerous times over the years, and has even inserted itself into the “Bennifer” zeitgeist: Ben’s girlfriend (and notably, former fiancée) Jennifer Lopez, 52, also showed some love for the shirt when she sported it on a private flight to Los Angeles. Eagle-eyed fans quickly noticed the oversized item on the “Dear Ben” singer, which she threw over a crop top and white sweatpants, as she descended down the plane’s staircase on June 11 with her kids Max and Emme, 13, in tow.

For his family outing, Ben threw the fall-ready item on with a pair of black jeans and white-and-cream colored sneakers. Violet and Seraphina were also casually dressed, with the 15-year-old — who is the spitting image of her mom Jennifer Garner, 49 — rocking a magenta colored dress and camel leather wedges. Seraphina showed her style with a pair of bright green Crocs, ribbed sweatpants from Alo Yoga, and a black sweatshirt bearing a “W.”

J.Lo looked super stylish as she arrived at an L.A. dance studio in an off-the-shoulder white crop top, plus matching sweatpants.

Even off the red carpet, Jennifer Lopez, 52, always slays the fashion game. The “Let’s Get Loud” singer arrived at a dance studio in Los Angeles on Thursday, Sept. 16 wearing a trendy, white off-the-shoulder crop top, which matched her semi-casual sweatpants. J.Lo added to her look with a pink sports bra, stylish sunglasses, and Nike sneakers.

As she headed into the studio, J.Lo had her hair pulled back into a pony tail, and she carried a black Birkin bag. The singer also had a few shiny rings on her fingers, though none were an engagement ring from her beau Ben Affleck, whom she got back together with a few months ago.

As fans know “Bennifer 2.0” has been going strong and been parading their love all over the world. Earlier this week, the A-list lovebirds hit up the Met Gala in New York, where they shared a cute kiss in front of photographers on the red carpet. Ben also gave Jen some solo time on the carpet to show off her incredible Ralph Lauren ensemble that channeled the wild west. The star-studded outing was actually the first time Ben attended the Met Gala, as he and Jen didn’t go together while they were dating in the early 2000s.

J.Lo and Ben have been so in love since rekindling their romance, and it’s certainly possible that a second engagement could be on the horizon. But while the couple broke things off after the first time they got engaged, a source previously told HollywoodLife that Jen and Ben’s relationship is “much different” this time. “It’s already much different this time around,” the source said. “They’re both giving this relationship another very solid try and they’ve both made it clear they’re not taking any BS and taking this seriously.”

The Charleston, West Virginia native appears to be in good spirits as her ex-husband Ben Affleck, also 49, enjoyed a whirlwind trip to Venice, Italy with Jennifer Lopez, 52. The rekindled couple — who were engaged from 2002 to 2004 before he was married to Garner — took the opportunity to go red carpet official at the premiere for his film The Last Duel. The Boston native stars in the flick as Count Pierre d’Alençon alongside BFF Matt Damon, 50. The Oscar winning duo also co-write the male perspectives in the flick.

Jennifer Garner, who was married to Ben from 2005 – 2018, was spotted keeping busy with the couple’s kids Seraphina12, and son Samuel, 9, while their dad was in Italy. The Alias alum could be seen teaching her two youngest kids how to pump gas at a Brentwood station on Sept. 10. While they may be a few years away from getting a drivers license in California, the two will certainly know their away around a gas pump when the time comes. Notably, Jen Garner and Ben also share daughter Violet, 15, who was not present.

Ben showed off his stepped up style game — likely thanks to fashion queen J.Lo — with an oatmeal colored peacoat over a black pant and shirt. He tied the look together with a neutral toned shoe, also tying into her brown and beige houndstooth blazer. The “Dear Ben” singer rocked a black bow blouse underneath, along with a champagne colored pair of sunglasses featuring an ombré lens. As always, the JLo Beauty founders’ glam was impeccable with a chic high ponytail and dewy, bronzed skin.

At one point during the meal, Ben was spotted stepping out for a quick smoke break outside while scrolling through his phone per video obtained by TMZ. The Boston native appeared to be trying to stay incognito with a pair of black sunglasses, however, fans and paparazzi were already outside waiting for their exit.

The pair touched down in the Big Apple following their glam trip to the Venice Film Festival in Italy where Ben premiered his new film The Last Duel. Bennifer also used the opportunity to make their long-awaited red carpet debut since getting back together last spring, delighting fans with a PDA-filled appearance! The pair looked over-the-moon as they held hands on the carpet, sharing an intimate giggle while posing for the eager photographers.

The Sept. 10 premiere date also held some significance for Ben and J.Lo: 18 years ago, they called off their 2003 nuptials citing intense media attention. While they reconciled after a brief split, the formerly engaged pair sadly broke up for good in Jan. 2004 — until, of course, their unexpected 2021 reunion. Jennifer chose to wear a white Georges Hobeika gown for the premiere to symbolize a “rebirth” of their romance, a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY.

It seems everyone is obsessed with the photos of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez making their red carpet debut — even his ex, Gwyneth Paltrow. See her comment!

Gwyneth Paltrow has reacted to the stunning photos of her ex Ben Affleck, 49, making his rekindled relationship with Jennifer Lopez, 52, red carpet official! The pair stepped out at the Venice Film Festival on September 10 for the premiere of Ridley Scott‘s The Last Duel, which Ben co-wrote and starred in with childhood friend Matt Damon. The Goop founder, 48, who dated Ben in the early 2000s was among the thousands of people to comment on the snaps, writing, “Okay, this is cute,” under a photo posted by Jen’s stylist Mariel Haenn.

As fans would know, Gwyneth is practically the CEO of maintaining good relationships with her exes. She popularized the term “conscious uncoupling” after calling it quits from her ex-husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 44, with whom she’s stayed close with through the years.

Prior to her marriage, Gwyneth met Ben at a party in 1997, and they began dating later that year. The duo co-starred in the 1998 film Shakespeare in Love while very much in love themselves. Sadly, they had split by the time she won the Oscar for Best Actress for the acclaimed film in 1999, however she thanked her “friend” Ben in her acceptance speech. The pair rekindled their romance when they starred in the 2000 drama film Bounce, but ended things for good in late 2000.

Through the years, Gwyneth has hinted that Ben had issues that caused their breakup. In 2003, she told Diane Sawyer, “Ben makes life tough for himself. He’s got a lot of complication, and you know, he really is a great guy. So I hope he sorts himself out.” She went even further during a 2015 appearance on The Howard Stern Show, saying, “He was not in a good place in his life to have a girlfriend,” though she added that he was “super intelligent and really, really talented.”

Matt Damon, 50, and his wife Luciana Barroso, 45, looked casual yet stylish when they were seen leaving Venice, Italy on Sept. 11. The lovebirds were photographed holding hands at the Venice airport while matching in black attire, including a black tank top and black cropped pants for the long-haired beauty, and a black polo shirt and blue jeans for the actor. They also both wore sunglasses and Luciana topped her look off with hoop earrings, a necklace, and black wedge shoes while Matt added black and white sneakers to his look.

The Good Will Hunting star flashed a smile to cameras and even waved at onlookers at one point during the outing, which came after the city’s 78th annual International Film Festival. The married couple also ran into actress Penelope Cruz, 47, whom Matt co-starred with in the 2000 film All The Pretty Horses, and they greeted her with a chat and hug. She also looked great in a red sweater, jeans, and black heels.

Before Matt and Luciana headed out of Venice, he showed up to the Venice Film Festival to promote his new film, The Last Duel. He reunited with longtime friend Ben Affleck, 49, who also worked on the film, at the event and they were all smiles while hanging out and chatting. They also posed on a boat together and looked like they were having the time of their lives.

When Matt’s not spending time with Luciana or Ben, he’s doing so with his three daughters, Isabella, 15, Gia, 13, and Stella, 10. During a recent rare outing, the doting father took the girls to dinner at celebrity hotspot Nobu in Malibu, CA and was spotted keeping them close as they got out of an SUV to head into the restaurant.

A week later, he and the family also celebrated Gia’s 13th birthday with a trip to Disneyland. They were all seen wearing matching Disney-themed T-shirts that read, “The Birthday Squad” on them and appeared to be having a great time.

Ben Affleck quickly reacted when a fan holding a camera aggressively tried to get close to Jennifer Lopez, jumping to protect her and gently pushing him back.

Ben Affleck, 49, swiftly jumped to protect Jennifer Lopez, 52, in Italy. The scary incident happened at the Venice airport on Saturday, Sept. 11 after a male fan attempted to get close to Jennifer with a camera in hand. It’s unclear what the fans’ intentions were, however, he seemingly appeared to be getting a selfie. After the male got past their security, Ben immediately stepped in front of the fan as Jen moved behind her beau for safety — watch the video via the Daily Mail here.

The couple were holding hands throughout the entire ordeal. Ben could be heard saying “whoa, whoa, whoa,” during the brief moment before he gently pushed the man back. Security and two police officers then intervened to move the fan back against a fall as Bennifer continued their walk into the airport to presumably fly to New York City for the Met Gala on Monday, Sept. 13. Ben appeared to turn to look at J.Lo making sure she was okay before she said “bye” to the paparazzi outside.

Earlier in the day, the couple were spotted in the same outfits — a beige polka dot Dior dress for her and a dark navy shirt and pant pairing for him — as they left their hotel via water taxi. Ben and J.Lo shared a sweet kiss and laugh on the dock as the waited for their ride, once again embracing in a steamy lip lock as they prepared to leave Italy.

The pair were in town for the Venice Film Festival, where Ben attended the premiere for his film The Last Duel. Bennifer made their long awaited red carpet debut at the glam event, driving fans and photographers wild. Ben stepped out of the car first for a few seconds of solo photos before opening the door for his leading lady, who dazzled in a plunging white gown with crystal details. After sharing a quick snuggle and laugh, the pair posed up a storm as they walked up and down the carpet looking more fabulous than ever.

On September 10, the ’13 Going On 30′ actress was out and about teaching her kids a few simple life lessons in Brentwood. 

It’s all about family bonding time for Jennifer Garner49, who taught her youngest children, daughter Seraphina12, and son Samuel, 9, how to pump gas on September 10. The actress looked content as ever as she sweetly gave her children a step-by-step tutorial on how to pump their own gas at a local station in Brentwood. After all, they’ll be driving in no time! 

Jennifer, who shares both kids, plus daughter Violet, 15, with ex Ben Affleck, was dressed super casual in a navy sweater layered with a white undershirt and jeans. She completed her minimalistic fit with black sunglasses, sneakers, and had her brunette tresses pulled back for the outing.

Like mom, the children also opted for comfort for the outing. In the photos, the dotting mom was seen walking Samuel through the process, who shortly after handed the nozzle off to Seraphina so she could get in on the action.

While Jennifer and the kids were back in Brentwood, her ex-hubby Ben was in Venice, Italy with his lover, Jennifer Lopez, 52. The two appeared to be so in love as they packed on PDA while attending the premiere of his film The Last Duel at the Venice Film Festival.

The lovebirds walked the carpet together like they didn’t miss a beat in 18 years and looked like the ultimate glamour couple. J.Lo wore a thigh-high slit white dress with a low-cut plunging neckline. The silver detailing matched the silver heels she opted to wear for the occasion. The stunner looked absolutely gorgeous and toned as ever. Ben cleaned up nicely as well for the outing. Wearing a black tux, the Argo star couldn’t keep his eyes, and hands for that matter, off of his girlfriend as they posed up a storm and packed on the PDA for the cameras.

Since the revival of Bennifer, their romance has been non-stop. The couple have been spotted on vacation and trips together with their children, including J.Lo’s twins Max and Emme, 13, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, and the duo were even photographed house hunting together across Los Angeles in July. Furthermore, Ben was pictured looking at engagement rings at the Century City, California Tiffany’s alongside his mom Sam and son Samuel on Aug. 23. 

While the love birds may not be heading down the aisle at this time, it’s clear this hot and heavy romance has no signs of slowing down.

J.Lo and Ben could not take their eyes off each other and when Ben walked out on the carpet alone, he smiled at the cameras before opening his car door to reveal Jennifer. Once the crowd saw they were together, the fans went wild and started cheering for them uncontrollably. Ben was smiling from ear to ear and started laughing because the reaction was overwhelming.

J.Lo accessorized her angelic look with a pair of metallic silver platform heels and a bedazzled crystal clutch. Meanwhile, Ben looked as handsome as ever in a fitted black tuxedo and patent leather shoes. The couple has been in Venice together for the past week and everywhere they go, they can’t keep their hands off each other.

Ben Affleck has a special co-star in his new commercial for WynnBET — his on-again girlfriend Jennifer Lopez’s mother, Lupe Rodriguez!

Ben Affleck, 49, got a special someone to make a cameo appearance in the actor’s new commercial for WynnBET, a new mobile sports betting and iGamin app. So that special someone must be Jennifer Lopez, right? Well even though the rekindled couple is going strong again, J.Lo, 52, was nowhere to be seen in the commercial — but the woman who gave birth to her was! That’s right, J.Lo’s mother, Guadalupe “Lupe” Rodriguez, 75, briefly appears in the WynnBet commercial, which Ben both stars in and directed.

Lupe’s big break comes at around the 1:00 minute mark of the 2-and-a-half minute long video, which was released on Aug. 30. Lupe is hilariously cheering herself on at the slot machines at Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas. “Come on, Lupe! You can do this girl,” she says aloud, adding, “Just like the slots in St. Louis.” Lupe’s comments are overheard by Ben, who is walking nearby her and says to himself, “St. Louis?” Moments later, Lupe has an expressive reaction to her slot machine, indicating that she may have just won big!

The commercial also features appearances from NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, actor Melvin Gregg, and other avid sports betters. Ben shared a snippet of a behind-the-scenes look at the commercial on Instagram, writing, “Here’s a look at the spot I directed to launch @wynnbet —a new sportsbook app that makes betting a team sport. Always fun teaming up with @Shaqand @melvingregg.”

Ben filmed the WynnBET commercial with his star-studded co-stars, Lupe included, on June 9 in Vegas. The group was photographed on set at the time, and Mama Lopez could be seen standing around the slot machine as she enthusiastically put her arms out while chatting with a camera man and other film crew. Ben was also all-smiles as he sported a short sleeve black t-shirt while milling about the set.

As fans know, Ben has been nearly inseparable from J.Lo since the pair got back together in May 2021. Bennifer has basically been going basically full steam ahead and have enjoyed vacation and trips together with their children, including J.Lo’s twins Max and Emme, 13, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony. The duo were also photographed house hunting together across Los Angeles prior to jetting away to Europe to celebrate J.Lo’s 52nd birthday back in July.

Recently, Ben was photographed at Tiffany & Co. in Los Angeles with his mother Chris Anne Boldt and son Samuel, 9, browsing rings in their little signature Tiffany’s blue boxes. It still remains unclear who the Argo actor was shopping for, but he and J.Lo later returned to the Westfield Century City shopping center just one day later for yet another outing that they looked so loved up for.

Queen vibes! Jennifer Lopez arrived to D&G’s epic Venice soirée in an ensemble fit for royalty, right down to her sparkly tiara.

Jennifer Lopez, 52, just reminded the world why she’s as fashion icon. The “Jenny From The Block” singer arrived to Dolce & Gabbana’s epic gala in Venice, Italy on Saturday, Aug. 28 in a show stopping ensemble fit for royalty. J.Lo looked like a queen in a green silk floral cape over top a black baroque floral pant and bedazzled crystal crop top. She topped her pulled back hair with an epic tiara, finishing the look with a sparkly pair of platform jeweled sandals and a woven handbag.

The Wedding Planner actress took to Instagram to show off her ultra-glam look for the star-studded soirée, which was held in the middle of the iconic Piazza San Marco. Giving her best runway strut to Lady Gaga‘s “Babylon,” Jen was clearly excited as she let out a small shriek and laugh towards the end of the clip. “That Runway show glow,” she wrote, shouting out her makeup and skincare brand JLo Beauty (also used for her evening glam by makeup artist Mary Phillips). In another video shot by the Venice taxi stand, the Bronx native looked sensational as she showed off her look and gave the camera a smoldering stare.

Jennifer was joined at the party, which is part of a three-day event as part of the Venice Film Festival, by her longtime manager Benny Medina. Beau Ben Affleck, 49, didn’t appear to be in attendance — however, he was curiously photographed at the airport ahead of her private flight to Italy late last week. It’s unclear if the Oscar winner flew with her to Venice and decided not to attend the party, or perhaps was just dropping her off before heading back home.

Recently, the star has been on somewhat of a D&G kick: she rocked a multi-colored patchwork mini dress by the Italian luxury label on her ritzy yacht vacation with Ben last month, along with a bright yellow kimono and a colorful tote bag from their new collection. She also sported a bejeweled bikini top and boxer shorts by the brand in her video for “Cambia El Paso.”

Ben Affleck is such a doting dad! The actor was seen hugging his eldest daughter Violet while dropping her off for a driving lesson.

Ben Affleck cut a casual figure when he was seen dropping his 15-year-old daughter Violet at a driving school. The Good Will Hunting star, 49, co-parents his kids Seraphina, 12, Samuel, 9, and Violet with ex Jennifer Garner and was spotted hugging his eldest daughter on the August 21 outing — see all the pics here.

He rocked his go-to grey tee, which he paired with khaki pants and black leather sneakers, as he held an iced coffee in his hand. Violet also cut a casual figure in a blue-and-white striped top and jean shorts, which she paired with blue sneakers. She then got behind the wheel of a black BMW convertible and drove off for the lesson.

Later that day, Violet joined her dad and his girlfriend Jennifer Lopez for a family outing at the Magic Castle in Hollywood. Jen’s twins Max and Emme, both 13, and all three of Ben’s kids were in attendance for the August 21 outing, along with his mom Christopher Anne Boldt. The Hustlers actress stunned in a baby blue dress with lace cutouts on the hem and a tie at the waist. She paired the long gown with matching blue heels, a white handbag, and layered gold necklaces. She styled her highlighted tresses in a fresh blowout and donned a patterned protective face mask.

Meanwhile, Ben certainly looked smart in a dark blue suit with a grey button-down shirt underneath which he paired with brown dress shoes. All five of their children followed behind them as they exited the Range Rover, with each of them looking just as stylish as their parents! The family outing came one day after the brood attended the Los Angeles production of the hit Broadway show Hamilton. A video obtained by TMZ showed the couple kissing through their masks as the final curtain went down. An audience member told the outlet that the couple and their brood walked in as the lights went down so as not to be recognized, and Ben had his arms wrapped around J.Lo after the show as they waited to exit the theatre.

Alex Rodriguez’s fans are in a frenzy thanks to a new photo that shows A-Rod posing with the red Porsche that he bought former fiancée J.Lo two years ago.

Alex Rodriguez, 46, didn’t get to keep the girl, but he did get to keep the car. The ex-MLB star, as fans know, is no longer together with Jennifer Lopez, 52, and the singer has moved on with former fiancé Ben Affleck, 49. But A-Rod still had a big smile on his face in his latest Instagram photo, which showed the dad of two posing with…. the red Porsche 911 GTS he bought J.Lo in 2019! Yep, Alex apparently kept possession of the $146,000 vehicle that he purchased for the singer for her 50th birthday back in 2019 while they were still engaged, and he had no problem flaunting it on his Instagram page on Aug. 18 for his nearly 4 million followers to see.

A post shared by Alex Rodriguez (@arod)

In the photo, Alex looked dapper dressed in a suit and tie as he lightly sat on top of the Porsche. Behind the Porsche were two other vehicles, though neither of those were gifts to J.Lo like the red sports car was. A-Rod looked so delighted to be the owner of the Porsche, and he proudly (and sarcastically) captioned his post, “I’m super down to earth.”

Naturally, fans went crazy over A-Rod’s pic with the Porsche. His followers correctly pointed out that it is the same vehicle he bought J.Lo for her 50th in 2019, and they couldn’t help themselves from making that known in the comments section. “Savage. Posing with the car he bought J.Lo for her bday lmfao,” one fan said, while another wrote alongside a laughing emoji, “not jlos whip no more.” A few of A-Rod’s famous followers also got in on the action: Tamar Braxton jokingly commented, “Looks down to earth to me,” and retired baseball star Johnny Damon dropped a comment in which he called A-Rod a “boss.”

They also celebrated her big day at the time with a massive party on Star Island in Miami, but beforehand, J.Lo reportedly went for a brief drive inside her new gift. “She took the car for a spin before the party with A-Rod and looked very excited,” a source told E! News at the time. “It came with a big gold bow on it and was delivered to their house,” the insider added.

Since their split earlier this year, J.Lo and A-Rod have been living very different lives. The “Jenny From The Block” songstress has been traveling around Europe and touring homes in Calif. with Ben, whom she was previously engaged to in the mid-2000s. Alex, meanwhile, appears to be doing well in the recent months, and even recently shared that he’s in a “great place“ in the wake of the highly-publicized breakup. “Whatever happened to me over the last year, I’m so grateful for it,” he told ET’s Kevin Frazier. “I’ve had five years of an incredible life and partnership, and also with my daughters, we learned so much.”

Ben Affleck was photographed taking his three kids, including Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9, as well as his mom, Chris, to the California Science Center, three days after his 49th birthday.

Ben Affleck, 49, had a special family outing on Aug. 18 and showed off his sweet bond with his oldest daughter, Violet. The actor had his arm around the 15-year-old while they walked alongside his other two kids, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9, as well as his mom, Chris, as they all visited the California Science Center. He was dressed in a dark gray blazer-style jacket over a black graphic T-shirt, black jeans, and white and gray sneakers and topped off his look with sunglasses and a black face mask.

Meanwhile, Violet wore a cute maroon short-sleeved dress and dark blue sneakers and a blue face mask while Seraphina wore a blue plaid long-sleeved shirt over a white collared shirt, light blue jeans, black and red sneakers, and a gray face mask. Samuel wore a green T-shirt, darker green pants, black sneakers, and a lime green face mask.

Chris also looked stylish in a dark teal top under a black button-down shirt, white pants, black sandals, and a medical face mask. The party of five looked relaxed and content as they happily walked outside the science center’s building.

Ben’s latest outing with his mom and kids, who he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 49, comes just days after celebrating his birthday. He was spotted hanging out with his kids while going to visit a family friend in Los Angeles on the special day and then later reportedly hung out with his girlfriend Jennifer Lopez, 52, and her twins Max and Emme, both 13. The trio apparently had a “low key” weekend that was “what he wanted.”

“Jennifer had a cake for him,” a source told PEOPLE about Ben’s private celebration. “Ben is not one for big celebrations, so he thought it was perfect. It was exactly what he wanted.”

Ben’s birthday festivities with J.Lo doesn’t come as too much of a surprise considering the two have seemed inseparable since rekindling their years old flame earlier this year. They were previously engaged while being in a relationship from 2002-2004, when fans gave them their memorable nickname, “Bennifer.” He also spent her birthday with her last month.

It’s unclear if Ben has any other plans for his actual birthday but he’s been spending a lot of time with his rekindled flame Jennifer Lopez, 52, so we wouldn’t be surprised if they do something special together as well! The lovebirds were photographed sitting in a car together when he visited her on the L.A. studio set of her new film earlier this week. It’s not clear what project J.Lo was working on but Ben’s visit seems to prove he’s supporting his girlfriend as she continues to work hard in her successful career.

Before their latest hangout, “Bennifer” celebrated her 52nd birthday with a luxurious vacation to Europe last month. The occasion also marked the first time the birthday girl shared a public PDA-filled photo with Ben since starting their romance up again in May. She included the cozy pic with a series of other sexy pics from her getaway on Instagram.

Ben and J.Lo are giving their love another try after originally being together in the early 2000s. They got engaged but by split by 2004. “Bennifer is moving full steam ahead,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife in July.

She wanted them to be away together,” insider dished, adding, “They are going somewhere without the kids.”

The source continued, “She wanted it to be an adults only trip, just the two of the to spend time together as a couple. They are keeping the whereabouts very quiet. Not many people know where they’re going and she’d like to keep it that way.” Ben spent his actual birthday on August 15 with his three children in Los Angeles. Ben appeared relaxed as he cut a casual figure a blue tee, black denim jeans, and grey and white sneakers.

He added sunglasses to complete his look while his kids, who he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 49, also wore casual attire.

“Everyone around her especially can’t believe this is actually happening. But when she said she was done with Alex Rodriguez, everyone knew she meant it. She’s given ending that relationship zero second thought and hasn’t looked back,” the source said. Even Ben’s childhood friend Matt Damon is supportive of the pair! The Golden Globe winner, 50, opened up about his friend’s relationship on the August 13 installment of The Carlos Watson Show, revealing he’s a total Bennifer stan. “Oh man, no one’s pulling harder than I am,” Matt said, when he was asked if he thought the pair would go the distance.

All suited up! Alex Rodriguez held onto a to-go coffee as he went for a solo walk in New York City on Aug. 15.

Alex Rodriguez, 45, stepped out for a stroll in New York City just a day after ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez, 52, unfollowed him on Instagram. The former Yankee was dressed up in a dapper black suit and tie as he sipped on a coffee on Sunday, Aug. 15, partially hiding his face behind a silver pair of aviator glasses. The sighting marks the first sighting since the unfollow, which also included the removal of nearly every photo from her page.

Since their unexpected split in April, A-Rod has been busy living the single life. The AROD Corp. CEO was just partying it up in Las Vegas, Nevada on Aug. 14 at the exclusive Omnia nightclub inside Caesar’s Palace Resort. Alex could be seen dancing and talking to three different women in video obtained by TMZ, seemingly having a great time as he grooved to the music.

Ahead of the Vegas trip, he was also vacationing in Saint-Tropez, France with sportscaster Melanie Collins, 45. Curiously, J.Lo and rekindled beau Ben Affleck, 49, were also vacationing in the area to celebrate her 52nd birthday. At one point, Alex and J.Lo’s multi-million dollar yachts were photographed passing each other — just narrowly avoiding what could have been a very awkward run-in. Curiously, the This Is Me…Then singer’s unfollow and photo deleting spree came just a day ahead of Ben’s 49th birthday (she did, however, already go Instagram official with the Pearl Harbor actor for her birthday in July).

Jen did leave a limited amount of photos with Alex up on her page, including one that paid tribute to the late  late Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa as a memorial for his death, as well as a sweet family Thanksgiving snap that included her twins Max and Emme, 13, and his daughters Natasha, 16, and Ella, 13, who he shares with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis.

As of publishing time on Aug. 15, J.Lo remains one of the 2,571 people that Alex follows on the social media platform. Alex has also seemingly left up all of their photos together, including a recent snap from their time in the Dominican Republic where she shot Shotgun Wedding, pictures from Joe Biden‘s inauguration, as well as a romantic Valentine’s Day tribute.

Matt Damon made a rare appearance with his three daughters for a family dinner, one day after showing his public support for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez.

Matt Damon has stepped out in Malibu for dinner with his three, rarely seen daughters, Isabella, 15, Gia, 12, and Stella, 10. The Good Will Hunting star, 50, was spotted heading to dinner at celebrity hotspot Nobu Malibu on August 14 with his kids, and was all smiles as he exited his large black SUV. Matt rocked an all black ensemble, including a black hoodie, pants, sneakers, and a protective face mask. His three daughters cut equally casual figures in jeans, sweaters and protective face masks.

As fans would know, the outing comes one day after the Golden Globe winner revealed he wants nothing but the best for his childhood friend Ben Affleck. Matt opened up about his pal’s relationship with Jennifer Lopez, revealing he’s a total Bennifer stan. On the August 13 installment of The Carlos Watson Show, the actor spoke about the couple during a rapid-fire round of questions, while promoting his new movie Stillwater. “Oh man, no one’s pulling harder than I am,” Matt said, when he was asked if he thought the pair would go the distance.

“They’re both great. I just want for their happiness. They seem pretty happy right now.” Back in July, Matt also spoke to Extra about the couple, revealing he was “just so happy” for Ben amid his rekindled romance with his ex-fiance. “He’s the best. He deserves every happiness in the world. I’m glad for both of them.” Fans of the actor would know he was also recently spotted taking a beachside stroll with the couple in Malibu.

Matt knows what makes Ben tick, and he is happy with it all because Ben is clearly happy.”

Jennifer Lopez moved on with rekindled beau Ben Affleck months ago, finally taking down most photos of ex Alex Rodriguez on Aug. 14.

It’s more than clear that Jennifer Lopez , 52, has moved on from ex Alex Rodriguez, 45, amid her romance with Ben Affleck, 48 — but the singer just caught her Instagram narrative up to real time. J.Lo finally went and deleted most old photos of the former Yankee, as well as unfollowed him, on Saturday, Aug. 14. The move comes four months after their April split, following rumors that he had engaged in an online relationship with Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy, 30. The purge also comes just two weeks after the “Dear Ben” singer went Instagram official with The Town actor in Saint Tropez (rocking a bikini, no less).

Notably, Jen had a close relationship with Alex’s two daughters Natasha, 16, and Ella, 13, who bonded with her twins Max and Emme, 13. Jen and Alex regularly posted social pictures and videos of their blended family over their four years together. A quick glance at her account reveals several A-Rod related posts remained up: notably, an old photo of the former couple with the late Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa as a memorial for his death, as well as an old Thanksgiving snap with the four kids and a Halloween post with Alex’s nephew Nick Silva.

As of publishing time, Alex continues to follow Jennifer on the Facebook-owned social media platform. He also has several posts up of her, including a Valentine’s Day tribute from Feb. 2021. “Thank you for taking me into your heart and on the journey of a lifetime,” he wrote for his fiancée at the time. Other old posts up on his account include a portrait from Joe Biden‘s inauguration, and several family photos.

Earlier this week, sources told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that Jennifer “is giving zero thoughts to how A-Rod feels about her relationship with Ben” and “doesn’t care who he’s dating or what he’s doing.” The insider spilled that the door is “completely closed” for the exes as she focuses on her rekindled romance with Ben. The pair, affectionately dubbed “Bennifer” in the early 00s by press, were formerly engaged from 2002 – 2004 but never made it down the aisle amid intense media scrutiny. “She really is focused on making it work this time around. They both are,” our source also said of the reunion.
