Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were seen together in Los Angeles, displaying affection for each other. This comes shortly after returning from a quick trip to Japan with her children.

Pictures captured by photographers show the couple holding hands and sharing a passionate kiss during a lunch date in the Venice Beach area on Sunday. Ms. Lopez was dressed casually. She wore a beige long-sleeved top, a cream-coloured puffer vest, and loose-fitting jeans.

To stay warm, she bundled up in a light brown scarf. She then finished her casual yet stylish outfit with tinted shades, platform Uggs, silver hoop earrings, and a dark brown handbag slung over her shoulder.

Mr. Affleck, 51, opted for a relaxed look, sporting a black button-down shirt paired with a navy blue jacket and jeans. Completing his casual attire, the Academy Award-winning actor from “Good Will Hunting” added Nike sneakers and Aviator sunglasses. As they waited for their car, Ms. Lopez leaned against a wall, her arms affectionately wrapped around her beau.

With eyes full of admiration, he looked deeply into her eyes before gently leaning in to share a kiss. This tender moment came just a few days after the dedicated mother of twins, Max and Emme, whisked them away on a delightful adventure to Tokyo to celebrate their sweet sixteenth birthdays.

The 54-year-old Jennifer Lopez, her highlighted hair sleeked back in a ponytail, stood beside her partner. She was beaming with a radiant smile as they entered their black BMW and drove off.

The “Maid in Manhattan” actress, who co-parents her children with her former husband, Marc Anthony, with whom she was married from 2004 to 2014, offered her fans a glimpse into the heartwarming getaway through a charming video montage on Instagram.

She captioned the post, “16 🥥🥥 Birthday trip 2024 🤍🤍,” “Happy Birthday to my coconuts I love you.”

Jennifer Lopez also shares parenting duties for Ben Affleck’s children, Violet (18), Seraphina ( 15), and Samuel (11). Affleck shares these children with his former wife, Jennifer Garner.

This adds to what has already been a busy year for Lopez, who recently released her successful ninth studio album, “This Is Me… Now,” earlier this month.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck first crossed paths on the set of the movie “Gigli” in 2001. Just one year later, he presented her with a stunning 6.1-carat pink diamond engagement ring from Harry Winston. While they originally planned to walk down the aisle in 2003, they ultimately chose to postpone their wedding celebration. Their paths diverged as they both went on to marry other people.

However, after nearly two decades, love found its way back to them. They rekindled their romance and officially said “I do” in 2022.
