After an ill-fated engagement with Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez is having a hot summer with Ben Affleck by her side. Rumors about Bennifer being back on have been swirling for the past few months, as the two actors have been spotted spending time with each other in Los Angeles and Miami. We’ve been pretty sure the Gigli couple are back on 17 years later but, now, we have an official look at the two together, and they are picture perfect. And it comes courtesy of Kings of Queens star Leah Remini.

Leah Remini posted about her birthday festivities on Instagram a month following her big day. Jennifer Lopez and Remini were co-stars on 2018 comedy Second Act, and they reunited for her 51st birthday party. Oh, and Ben Affleck was there:

Okay, so this might not be on Jennifer Lopez’s Instagram account, but it might be as close as we’re going to get to social media official. J-Lo and Ben Affleck found a cozy pose, as they took a photo booth picture with Leah Remini during her birthday party. Affleck looked happy with placed his arm around Lopez, and the Hustlers actress gave a model-like glance at the camera while placing her hand near Affleck’s chest. The photo was part of Leah Remini’s birthday video thanking her guests for celebrating with her:

Bennifer 2.0 is looking incredible, and it’s great to see the couple enjoying themselves at parties as their relationship progresses. Back in May, the pair were seen hanging out together, even taking a trip to Montana together. As the season has changed to summer, Ben Affleck has visited Jennifer Lopez on her side of the coast in Miami and Lopez has also been seen hanging out with her new flame in L.A. in between her business on the west side.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck first met when they were cast in Gigli in early 2002. The couple got together on the heels of J-Lo’s divorce with Cris Judd. The couple went as serious as becoming engaged but, in 2004, they broke up. J-Lo went on to marry Marc Anthony, and Ben Affleck got hitched to Jennifer Garner, with each couple settling down and having kids in between their high-profile Hollywood careers.

Ironically, both stars found themselves living the single life again by the first part of this year. Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas broke things off after having quarantined togther for much of last year, while Jennifer Lopez and A-Rod claimed they’re “better as friends” after four years together. After all the hype surrounding the famed couple reigniting their flame, it’s sweet to see that it is in fact not too good to be true. Long live Bennifer!
