Jennifer Lopez celebrates her 52nd birthday by debuting steamy snap with Ben Affleck on Instagram
Jennifer Lopez is 52!
The Hustlers star sizzled in a series of images and videos she shared in celebration, where she dons a pink and orange bikini, colourful kaftan and straw hat as she struts her stuff aboard a boat — and kisses her former flame turned current beau Ben Affleck.
“52!” Lopez proudly exclaims in one Instagram video captioned, “5 2 … what it do …” where she strikes a series of poses, encouraged by cheers off-screen. Watch above!
She then shared some snaps taken by photographer Ana Carballosa, the last of which has fans flooding the comments.
“5 2 … what it do …💗” the ‘Cambia El Paso’ singer captioned her post, which features the official debut of the 48-year-old Good Will Hunting star.
Although the couple, who are also known by the moniker of ‘Bennifer,’ unofficially made their Instagram debut on Leah Remini’s profile earlier this week, this is the first time Lopez and Affleck have acknowledged their relationship themselves.
Affleck and Lopez were previously engaged between 2002 and 2004, with Lopez once referring to her split from Affleck as “probably [her] first big heartbreak.”
They were set to get married in September 2003, but postponed their wedding just days before Lopez was to walk down the aisle, before ultimately ending their relationship four months later.
The duo has been spotted out and about many times over the current American summer, including with each other’s family and friends.
Lopez’ two children — 13-year-old twins Emme and Max — are also “slowly getting to know” Affleck, per People.
“Everything seems to be running smoothly. It’s very obvious that Jennifer is serious about Ben. She hasn’t looked this happy for a long time.”
