So a lot for reconnecting with an outdated flame on Facebook.
Jennifer Lopez revealed in a brand new interview with Vogue on Tuesday that she and Ben Affleck rekindled their early aughts relationship over electronic mail after almost 20 years aside.
Affleck, who’d simply break up together with his pandemic flame, Ana de Armas, reached out to the “Marry Me” actor after she and Alex Rodriguez broke off their engagement.
According to Vogue’s abstract of the occasions, Affleck advised Lopez that one other journal reached out for a remark about her, “and he wanted her to know that he had provided a rave.” The journal mentioned the 2 continued to speak after the preliminary electronic mail and commenced visiting one another’s houses.
“Obviously, we weren’t trying to go out in public,” Lopez mentioned. “But I never shied away from the fact that for me, I always felt like there was a real love there, a true love there. People in my life know that he was a very, very special person in my life. When we reconnected, those feelings for me were still very real.”
“Not to discredit anything in between that happened because all those things were real too,” she mentioned. “All we’ve ever wanted was to kind of come to a place of peace in our lives where we really felt that type of love that you feel when you’re very young and wonder if you can have that again.”
After a bath proposal and two weddings (one in Vegas, one in Georgia), the 2 are actually engaged on mixing their households.
“The transition is a process that needs to be handled with so much care,” Lopez mentioned of her twins Emme and Max, who she shares with ex-Marc Anthony. Affleck has three kids ― Violet, Seraphina and Samuel ― whom he shares with Jennifer Garner.
“They have so many feelings. They’re teens. But it’s going really well so far,” she mentioned, including that Garner is “an amazing co-parent, and they work really well together.”
Their kids performed a candy position on the couple’s second marriage ceremony in Georgia, which Lopez detailed in her e-newsletter, “On the JLo,” in September.
All 5 children walked down the aisle forward of the singer and stood with their dad and mom in the course of the marriage ceremony ceremony.
“We weren’t only marrying one another; we were marrying these children into a new family,” Lopez wrote in her e-newsletter. “They were the only people we asked to stand up for us in our wedding party. To our great honor and joy, each one did.”
