A modern family. Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Garner’s holiday plans may seem “strange” to most people, but for them it’s the perfect way to celebrate Christmas.
A source told OK! magazine on November 17, 2021, that Ben plans to spend the holidays with both his girlfriend, J-Lo, and his ex-wife, Jen, and their two sets of children. “Christmas is about the kids. Despite being complete opposites, Jennifer Garner and Jennifer Lopez have bonded about the kids,” the insider said. “It may sound strange to spend the holidays with your ex-husband’s new boyfriend, but Jennifer does not care what other people think.”

J-Lo has two children with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony: 13-year-old twins, Maximilian and Emme. Ben and Jen, who divorced in 2018 after 13 years of marriage, share three children: daughters Violet, 13, and Seraphina, 12, and son, Samuel, 9. While the source notes that J-Lo and Jen are “getting along”, the insider confirms that it is “very unlikely” that the two will become best friends. “If the kids can get together, why can the parents not?” said the source. “I doubt you’ll ever see Jennifer show up in a J-Lo music video or hang out at a Versace fashion show together. Just as it’s very unlikely that J-Lo will bake cookies with Jennifer before they take to book club together. “

The news of Ben, J-Lo and Jens’ holiday plans comes after the trio was seen trick-or-treating with their kids on Halloween. A source told Radar Online at the time that Jen contacted J-Lo to meet when she realized how “serious” the singer “Jenny From the Block” was with her ex-husband. “Once it was clear that Ben and Lopez meant to reunite, Jennifer reached out,” the insider said. “When you have kids with an ex and that person starts dating again, you three are linked together whether it likes it or not. Jennifer was determined to make sure she had a relationship with J. Lo , if nothing else, so that things were not troublesome for her children. “
The source went on to note that although J-Lo and Jen have “different” personalities, they share a common “love for their children.” “J-Lo and Jennifer could not be more different, but they share one thing in common, which is their love for their children,” the insider said. “They have found common ground. They will never be best friends, but they will both always do what is best for their children.”
Ben and J-Lo, who starred in movies like Gigli and Jersey girl together, first dated from 2001 to 2004. They became engaged in 2002 before their split two years later. The two reunited in April 2021 after J-Lo divorced his then-fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, after four years together. In an interview with TODAY in November 2021, J-Lo – who has been married three times – revealed whether she would tie the knot again. “I do not know,” she said at the time. “Yes I think so. You know me, I’m a romantic, I’ve always been a couple of times. I still believe in happiness until the end of their days, definitely 100%.”
