Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez just brought their rekindled relationship all the way into 2021 by going Instagram official. Wowee.
Considering J Lo and Ben met during filming for Gigli in 2001, and Instagram only launched in 2010, fans are absolutely loving this.
Sadly, it wasn't a selfie posted to one of their grids or a Kourtney Kardashian/Travis Barker-style PDA, but we'll take what we can get. Instead, the pair posed for a photobooth picture at actress Leah Remini's birthday party, which she shared to Instagram.
Fast forward to 0.32 to see J Lo and Ben:
The couple first called off their relationship (and engagement) in September 2003, before speculation of their reconciliation began in May 2021. It wasn't until July that J-Lo was publicly asked about their relationship, coyly dodging questions about their relationship on a talk show.
Jen appeared on The Today Show, and show host Hoda Kotb began by asking the Hustlers star if she was happy at the moment. She remarked that Jen seems happy in pictures with Ben, to which Jen responded very diplomatically by simply dodging the question altogether.
"The song is out," she replied. "Five years since we've done it and I believe that that message of loving one another and coming together and love is never more relevant than it is right now."
Kotb tried one more time, telling J Lo, "Wait, it's me you're talking to, you know that?" to which the singer responded, "I know, you can call me. You have my number."
Looks like the photobooth pic will have to suffice for now.
