On June 18, Jennifer Lopez posted a number of pictures of Ben Affleck, including a picture of the actor taking a shirtless selfie. This set off an internet frenzy. The abs shot is all the more shocking given how frequently she posts images of herself to Instagram and how infrequently Affleck appears in any of the postings.
The Instagram video and two adorable pictures of the couple were posted along with the phrase, “Daddy Appreciation Post,” by Lopez, saying “Happy Father’s Day, Papa.”
The On the Floor singer continued, “And Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing Papas out there!!” Emme and Max, who are 15 years old, are twins she had with her ex-husband Marc Anthony. More than you can imagine, we adore and value you.
Social media users have criticized the Not Your Mama singer since she posted the images online and deemed them unfit for Father’s Day.
Lopez has 15-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony, while Affleck has three children with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner: Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 11.
In the early 2000s, Bennifer was the It couple. Though the two split up in 2004, they have since recreated one of Hollywood’s favorite relationships, appearing on countless loved-up outings and red-carpet appearances together.
The Hollywood actors first met on the set of Gigli, a 2003 romantic comedy. The film ultimately failed, but sparks sparked between the major actors.
Lopez and Affleck restarted their romance in April 2021, and after a year of dating, they announced their engagement in April 2022. Last August, the couple married. The pair first became engaged in November 2002, but they divorced in January 2004.
