On Saturday, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck spent a day out with Lopez’s 14-year-old twins Max and Emme in Los Angeles. Affleck and J.Lo walked with their arms wrapped around one another, looking very in love just weeks after their second wedding ceremony on Affleck’s estate in Georgia. The couple were completely absorbed in each other as they talked, laughed, and stopped to kiss.
Lopez was wearing a long-sleeved white shirt tucked into her blue jeans, which were cinched with a tan belt. She had her hair up with loose waves around her face, and wore a pair of aviator glasses and large hoop earrings. Affleck wore a white button-down and a pair of khakis, complimenting her look.
The newlyweds are just returned from their trip to Italy, which included stops in Lake Como and Milan. They had their first wedding ceremony in Las Vegas a few weeks before the Georgia affair, and immediately flew to Paris with their kids for a family trip. Lopez has been revealing details of both ceremonies in her popular newsletter, saying how it felt to see Affleck on her on their wedding day and how he felt spotting her in her dress.
“When he saw me appear at the top of the stairs that moment it both made absolute sense while seeming still impossibly hard to believe, like the best dream, where all you want is never to awaken,” she wrote. “I would have had many of the same thoughts probably had I not been focusing so hard on not tripping over my dress, but when I got close enough to see his face, it made the same wonderful sense to me.”
She added, “Some old wounds were healed that day and the weight of the past finally lifted off our shoulders. Full-circle — and not at all the way we planned it. Better.”
The couple were first engaged almost two decades ago before breaking it off and going on to marry other people. Lopez shares her twins with ex-husband Marc Anthony and Affleck shares three children with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
