As the summer ends, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez may be on the cusp of taking a very big step in their back-on relationship. Page Six ran photos of Affleck looking at engagement rings at Tiffany & Co. in Century City, California. His mother and son Sam were with him, the outlet reports. Lopez and Affleck previously got engaged in November 2002. Affleck proposed then with 6.1-carat pink diamond by Harry Winston.
Lopez’s former publicist Robert Shuter spoke in May about how he believes that Lopez actually still has that first engagement ring.
“As far as I know, Jen has never returned the ring,” Shuter said. “So, if things move forward with these two, gosh, she’s already got the most beautiful ring I’ve seen. It’s absolutely stunning. I was with her once, and it is blinding. I almost thought—forgive me, Jen—it almost was QVC-ish, ’cause it was so large! I didn’t think it was real! She said, ‘Don’t touch it, it’s a real ring.’”
The Affleck Tiffany’s sighting comes as Entertainment Tonight and E! published new reports about Bennifer’s efforts to blend their families. Affleck has three children with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner: Violet, 15; Seraphina, 12; and Sam, 9. Lopez shares 13-year-old twins Emme and Max with her ex-husband Marc Anthony.
“Jennifer has made a big effort to get to know Ben’s kids and welcome them into her home and her life,” E!’s source said. “They have spent a lot of time getting to know each other and letting the kids have fun and bond.”
“Seraphina and Emme have bonded over going to the same school and being close in age,” the source added. “Ben and J.Lo 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.Everything is going very well and working out.”
Entertainment Tonight‘s source said, “It’s been fun for them to do activities as a blended family and the kids are enjoying getting to know each other better. Jen and Ben are both hands-on parents and their kids are their number one priority, so it’s important for them to do things as a unit that make their families happy.”
Earlier this summer, a source weighed in to E! about the chances of a Bennifer re-engagement. The source downplayed that idea at the end of July. “They have been meshing their lives and families and don’t feel the need to get engaged yet or even tie the knot,” the source said then. “They have both been there and don’t feel it’s necessary. They are both very secure within their relationship, and Ben worships her. It’s truly meant to be and everyone around them thinks they are a perfect match.”
