The months-long rumored relationship between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck has just become Instagram official.
In a post from July 25, 2021, Lopez captioned a series of images, “5 2 … what it do …” with the final photo showing the pair kissing.
While Lopez didn’t tag the American actor and philanthropist, this is not the first time they’ve been spotted cozied up together.
Friend Leah Remini posted a video montage on July 23 from her own birthday that also showed the couple together. Although this was their first social media debut after rekindling their relationship, Lopez’s post is the first from the couple themself.
Lopez and Affleck also recently enjoyed a Montana getaway together, and are reported to be “very happy together.”
The pair first dated in 2002 after meeting on the set of Gigli. After calling off their engagement in 2004 due to media pressure, they continued their friendship. Both individuals eventually married but divorced in later years.
Lopez and ex-fiancé Alex Rodriquez, who had been together four years, broke off their engagement in April 2021, and Affleck was photographed by paparazzi at Lopez’s home shortly after.
While the couple may seem to have made their relationship official on social media, there has been no definitive statement. The pair have made it clear they are not willing to rush their new relationship with labels but that “love is there.”
