Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck shocked the world two months ago when they rekindled their romance seventeen years after they called off their engagement. Now, it appears that the two of them are getting more serious, as they were seen this past week looking at a mansion in Los Angeles, California together.
TMZ reported that Lopez and Affleck were spotted last Thursday looking at a mansion worth around $65 million located in the ritzy Holmby Hills neighborhood. They were seen in the area with a high-end realtor who took them to a few different mansions. Lopez and Affleck followed behind the realtor in their own car, and shared a kiss before going inside the mansion.
The main mansion that Lopez and Affleck were seen looking at was a 31,000 square-foot home is complete with 8 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. This will give them plenty of room for Lopez’s twins and Affleck’s three children.
While it’s been claimed that Affleck was accompanying Lopez on her own house hunt, a source told Entertainment Tonight that the couple’s “friends wouldn’t be surprised if they move in together and ultimately end up together.”
“They’re spending all of their free time together and making each other a priority. J.Lo falls hard and has certainly done the same with Ben again this time around,” the source said. “Ben is a guy’s guy and does his own thing, which J.Lo loves. He has his own life and is famous in a different way than she is and is not trying to compete with her by any means. They just support and love each other.”
Lopez and Affleck were previously engaged from 2002 until 2004. They reconnected earlier this year after Lopez called off her engagement from baseball star Alex Rodriguez back in April.
“When Ben reached out to J.Lo, she was really excited at the possibility of them rekindling their relationship. J.Lo has always had a love for Ben,” the source added. “Back in the day, Ben broke up with J.Lo because he was overwhelmed by the constant media attention and fame that the relationship brought, but now they are in an amazing place and have really learned what works for them as a couple.”
The insider went on to say that Affleck and Lopez’s relationship “is not a big deal to either sets of kids,” adding that the children “aren’t super sensitive to the situation.”
