Jennifer Lopez Celebrated Her 52nd Birthday with a Kiss from Ben Affleck

·1 min read

After unofficially going Instagram official, Jennifer Lopez left no doubt that she and Ben Affleck are a couple with her latest post. On Saturday, J.Lo celebrated her 52nd birthday with a debut photo to end all debut photos, posting a snapshot of herself and Ben sharing a steamy kiss.

The PDA-filled picture, which was sneakily hidden at the end of a photo dump, shows Bennifer locking lips on a yacht in St. Tropez. In the snap, Lopez paired a tiny bikini with a floral coverup in bright colors and a sunhat, while Ben opted for more clothing, and wore a navy button-down and khaki pants. The photo marks the first time either Ben or Jen have publicly acknowledged their rekindled romance.

In a follow-up post, J.Lo shared a video that offered a closer glimpse at her birthday look. During the short clip, a male voice (Ben's, perhaps?) could be heard telling Jennifer to "give it to them" as she modeled her bikini.

Earlier this week, Lopez coyly side-stepped a question about her relationship with Affleck while making an appearance on the Today Show. During the interview, host Hoda Kotb, told Jen that she looks "happier" — to which she replied, "I'm always happy when you see me, Hoda."

Hoda pressed, adding: "Every time I see a picture of you and Ben [Affleck] — 'she looks happier.' Are we happier?" Ignoring the inquiry entirely, J.Lo began to speak about her new single "Love Make the World" with Lin-Manuel Miranda, before telling Hoda to "call me" if she wanted to know what's really going on. And now, everyone does.
