Reports already surfaced that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck spent Thanksgiving together, but now we know a few more details.
A source tells People that after returning from filming her latest movie, The Mother, in Canada, Lopez flew in to celebrate the holiday with Affleck and her 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
“Jennifer flew back to L.A. from Vancouver to celebrate Thanksgiving with her kids and Ben,” the source says. “The last few weeks have been intense for her.” According to the source, Affleck also celebrated with his own children, 15-year-old Violet, 12-year-old Seraphina, and nine-year-old Samuel, whom he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
“It’s been hard for her to be away from her kids and Ben,” the source added. “She is very much looking forward to a short break.”
On November 25, Lopez shared a video recorded from her final day on set. “Hey everybody, it’s my last day here shooting on The Mother out in Smithers in the snow, it’s been beautiful, but tonight I’m on my way home,” she said. “I’m so excited for Thanksgiving! I hope everybody has an amazing weekend with their families and their loved ones, there’s so much to be grateful for this year. I’m on my way!”
According to a source that spoke to the publication, Lopez and Affleck are “doing really well.” They said, “Jennifer loves being with Ben. She feels it’s truly meant to be.”
“I don’t know. Yeah, I guess,” Lopez responded, adding, “I mean, you know me. I’m a romantic, I always have been. I’ve been married a few times. I still believe in happily ever after, for sure. One hundred percent.”
