  • Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were spotted out with their kids in Los Angeles over the weekend.
  • Sources say the two are trying to plan "fun things" that their blended family "can all do together".
  • Shortly after, the Justice League star was spotted at Tiffany & Co., though sources have previously shared the couple aren't planning to get hitched just yet.


Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have come a long way (almost 20 years in fact) since they rekindled their romance following their week-long getaway earlier this year.

On Friday, the couple stepped out with their kids – Ben Affleck with Violet, 15, and Seraphina, 12, whom he shares with ex Jennifer Garner, and JLo with twins Max and Emme, 13, whom she has with ex Marc Anthony – to see Hamilton at Hollywood's Pantages. A day later Ben Affleck's son Samuel, 9, also tagged along as they enjoyed a magic show at the private clubhouse Magic Castle.

This isn't the first outing for Hollywood's newest blended family, and the two are reportedly trying to plan "fun things that they can all do together".

"Jennifer has made a big effort to get to know Ben's kids and welcome them into her home and her life," an insider tells E! News of the Hustlers star, who recently relocated to Los Angeles where Ben lives. "They have spent a lot of time getting to know each other and letting the kids have fun and bond."

The source added: "Seraphina and Emme have bonded over going to the same school and being close in age," while "Ben and JLo both have work commitments coming up, so they are enjoying their last few days of summer and family time before they head in different directions for work in the fall."

They said: "Everything is going very well and working out."

A source previously told the publication the A-listers are "completely on the same page" and not feeling any pressure to get hitched right now. Though People reports the Justice League star was spotted looking at jewellery while at Tiffany & Co. in LA recently.

Things are moving quickly between the two – we wouldn't rule out an engagement just yet.
