Jennifer Lopez reveals the moment she ‘instantly’ knew SHE had to reignite romance with husband Ben Affleck


Jennifer Lopez has lifted the lid on her rekindled romance with Ben Affleck, revealing why it took so long for the couple to reunite. 

Jennifer, 54, and Ben, 51, once the ‘it’ couple of the early 2000s, famously split in 2004 after a failed engagement. 

The couple reunited in July 2021 and went on to wed in Las Vegas in July 2022. 

Jennifer Explained How She Figured Herself

Appearing on The Kyle And Jackie O Show on Thursday, Jennifer explained it took her almost two decades to ‘figure herself out’ before the ‘universe opened up’ and allowed her to reunite with her ex lover. 

‘I fell in love with the love of my life [earlier in my life] and for whatever reasons… we needed to grow and do other things,’ she began. 

We both went off and had children with other people and other relationships but, you know, in mind I kind of had it like, “Oh, that was kind of the one” and so when we got back together.

‘…..and we just knew’

‘I couldn’t believe it and I don’t think he could either. It’s not something we ever planned. We really had moved on with our lives but when we reconnected, it was almost instant and we just knew.’

Jennifer went on to describe her personal journey between relationships with Ben, and how having children made her a better person.

How Having Children Helped Jennifer

‘I was on a real journey ever since my kids were born,’ said the popstar, who shares twins Max and Emme, 16, with ex Marc Anthony.

Ben is also father to two teenage daughters – Violet, 18, and Seraphina, aka Fin, 15 – from his decade-long marriage to Jennifer Garner, which ended in 2018. 

The I’m Real hitmaker said she spent time during her marriage to Marc developing her sense of self, explaining: ‘[I was trying] to be better and figure myself out and be the best person I can be so I can be a great mum, and a great example for them.’

What Divorce Did to Her

‘Then when I got divorced, it kind of kick-started another phase of me trying to figure out myself and relationships and things like that,’ she continued. 

Following her divorce, Jennifer endured a string of failed relationships and eventually decided to remain single. 

It was at that point that the songstress finally rekindled romance with Ben. 

‘I was like, ‘I’m good on my own, I’m fine, I love my life”. And when you get to that place, I think that’s when the universe kind of opened up to me and was like, “OK now you’re ready”,’ she said.
