Ben Affleck is “seriously talking” about marrying Jennifer Lopez, as their romance is continuing to go from strength to strength.
The “Justice League” star has been romancing Jennifer, 52, since May this year, after they rekindled their romance following two years together between 2002 and 2004. And while the couple’s engagement during their last relationship didn’t work out, Ben is hoping to make it second time lucky, as he’s reportedly planning to ask Jennifer to marry him.
An insider told Us Weekly magazine: “[Ben and Jennifer are] seriously talking about getting married. They are both madly in love and don’t want to let one another go this time.
Ben, 49, reportedly considers the ‘Hustlers’ star to be the “one that got away” and he is “determined to make sure that doesn’t happen this time. Ben is father to three kids – Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, nine – whom he has with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner, while Lopez has 13-year-old twins Emme and Max with former spouse Marc Anthony. An insider said: “It’s been fun for them to do activities as a blended family and the kids are enjoying getting to know each other better.
“Jen and Ben are both hands-on parents and their kids are their number one priority, so it’s important for them to do things as a unit that make their families happy.
Ben, Jennifer, and their children were spotted in Los Angeles several times over the weekend, including trips to the Pantages Theatre to see ‘Hamilton’ and to The Magic Castle. The source added: “Jennifer, Ben, their children and Ben’s mother visited the Magic Castle in Hollywood as invited guests of one of the magician members.
“They came to enjoy the Magic Castle’s largest magic show in the Palace of Mystery with their featured performers Jonathan Neal and Steve Owens and then a special private show with magician David Minkin. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, especially the children. The whole group seemed like a happy family who were having a good time.
