Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck caught eyes had they rekindled their romance when photos of them holding hands spread like wildfire back in May – only a month after J Lo had broken up from Alex Rodriguez, her ex fiance.
Over the last few months the pair have been inseparable, and with their relationship seeming to go stronger than ever, it’s hard not to wonder what the secret is.
It turns out it is mapping out weekly ‘sit down sessions’ to share what is on their minds, and making a pact to be honest and open with one another moving forward. We are here for it.
According to a source, ‘Right from the start, they agreed to be super open with each other, so they actually pencil in weekly sit-down sessions to talk about their feelings.’
Lopez and Affleck, who were engaged back in 2002, but separated after two years, decided to test the waters and give their relationship another chance after they split 17 years ago.
Despite almost twenty years apart, they still can’t keep their hearts and minds off one another, and look more in love than ever before.
And the proof is clear as air as the pair are often seen fondling when out and about together like teenagers with their first love, and let’s not forge Jennifer Lopez’s epic birthday back in July, when images of the couple caressing each other on a yacht emerged.
It also seems the key in maintaining the spark is also a ‘sexy selfie’, and new underwear.
‘They’re still at the stage where they can hardly keep their hands off each other, but it’s not just chemistry. Jen is constantly buying new lingerie, which Ben loves, and if she’s away from him even for a few hours, she’ll take a sexy selfie and send it to him’, the source continued.
The 52-year-old singer, and the 49-year-old actor both have very busy work schedules, but they continue to make time for one another, even if it is a simple FaceTime before bed.
The source went on: ‘Ben has to FaceTime Jen every night before bed. Their friends think it’s all a bit over the top, but Ben and Jen are so grateful to be getting this second chance. They’re not taking anything for granted.’
