Everyone from the gossip-loving audience to entertainment colleagues (like Hoda Kotb in a recent DAGS interview) are desperate to know the status of the revived relationship between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. We’ve all been weirdly invested in whether these two can make it work this time (crossed fingers!), But no matter what happens, it really has no bearing on our actual lives. For Lopez and Affleck’s children, though, it’s life – changing if this romance turns into marriage. Hi, new famous stepparent!

Fortunately, all indications are that both Affleck’s children and Lopez’s children are on board with Bennifer 2.0.
Sources recently told PERSONER that Lopez’s son Max and daughter Emme are “slowly getting to know” Affleck, and that “everything seems to be running smoothly” as she hunts in Los Angeles.
“Emme and Max are on board to start fresh in LA,” said the Lopez insider, who added that the 13-year-old twins continue to spend time in Miami with father Marc Anthony.
Meanwhile, Affleck’s offspring – daughters Seraphina, 12, and Violet, 15, plus son Samuel, 9, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner – have been seen happily spending time with their father and Lopez.
It’s good news that their kids are on board with a Lopez-Affleck pairing, as this week’s issue of PERSONS reports that a Hollywood insider said the couple “are wildly in love” and “the love of each other’s lives.”
A source close to Lopez also said: “They will do everything they can to make this work.”
Lopez and Affleck first started dancing in July 2002 and announced their celebrity engagement in November. However, they postponed their wedding from September 2003 only a few days before the date and eventually interrupted it completely in January 2004.
Although the couple was only seen together again in April, they have reportedly kept in touch over the years. They moved fast last time, and this romance seems to be developing just as fast. With their kids in the mix this time, though, we bet they are extra careful. Both Lopez and Affleck seem like committed parents, so their children are likely to be in front of their minds when navigating this new love affair.
