Bennifer 2.0 appears to be a go!
Jennifer Lopez made her relationship with Ben Affleck Instagram official with a birthday surprise. After rumors milled and paparazzi photos surfaced for months of the two reuniting after her breakup with ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez, Lopez finally sealed her relationship status with a kiss.
The singer posted a series of photos dressed in a pink and orange stringed bikini, a colorful floral beach coverup and a straw hat on Instagram Saturday to celebrate her 52nd birthday. On the last slide she wore her new-but-old lover Affleck, locked by the lips.
“5 2 … what it do …..,” she wrote on the relationship reveal.
The photo marks the first time either Lopez or Affleck have posted anything about their renewed love.
Lopez and Affleck first took pop culture by storm after they started dating in the early 2000s. The Hollywood power couple – who starred together in 2003’s “Gigli” and 2004’s “Jersey Girl” – got engaged in November 2002 (remember her pink engagement ring?). But at the time there wasn’t a happily ever after — Lopez and Affleck ended their engagement in 2004.
Leading up to Saturday’s birthday kiss the two made an Instagram on behalf of Leah Remini who posted a two-minute video montage Thursday which featured Lopez and Affleck cuddled together in a black-and-white snap, with Lopez’s hand placed on his chest.
Over the July 4th holiday weekend, Lopez and Affleck were seen enjoying a day out at Universal Studios Hollywood in California with their kids, according to photos and reports from Page Six and Entertainment Weekly.
