Jennifer Lopez And Ben Affleck Went Instagram Official For Her Birthday

July 25, 2021 / Posted by:

Yesterday, Jennifer Lopez turned 52, and was anyone really expecting it to just slip by unannounced and without drama-packed visual documentation for future generations? This isn’t our first rodeo. The weather outlets have their Stormwatch but here we’re all about Stuntwatch, and the usual suspects rarely disappoint. This past month, we rode out a sugar coma thanks to Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton getting all mushy and gross; tried to care about Irina Shayk insisting she and Kanye West are, like, really a thing; and then yelled at the screen in exasperation when it told us Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd had been seen eating dinner together.

No one actually buys into any of this stunt fluffage, but just nod along because today’s offering is propping up a candy-coated fantasy of “the love of their lives who got away, stayed away, married other people, had kids, got divorced, and then rediscovered each other just when their stunt-queen spot was getting itchy.” People reports that a quick minute after JLo and Ben Affleck made an appearance on Leah Remini’s Instagram page, they went Instagram Official on her page, in addition to being the bliss-oozing cover story of their August issue.

Jennifer Lopez is celebrating her birthday with Ben Affleck!

The “Cambia El Paso” singer showed off a rather steamy kiss with the actor while celebrating her 52nd birthday aboard a boat on Saturday.

In the photos posted to Instagram, Lopez wore a red and yellow chevron, two-piece bathing suit, paired with a brightly-colored caftan, gold jewelry, and a sunhat. Meanwhile, Affleck, 48, opted for a casual button-up top on the water.

“5 2 … what it do …💗,” she captioned the romantic images.

Saturday’s birthday post marks the first time Lopez or Affleck have shared anything about their rekindled romance on their own social media accounts.

It must come as a relief to finally pull off this very important milestone in their stunt-queening without a hitch since back in May, JLo and Ben had apparently intended to go IG official, but the paps beat them to the punch. Rood! Here is the “hastily reheated in the microwave, but totally on high, you guys” IG debut:

And JLo also shared a Ben-less birthday video:

So we’ve got a birthday, snazzy boat, sparkling ocean, a bikini cover-up that aspires to Mrs. Roper glamour and only falls slightly short, and of course the requisite, “we’re so totally in love again” kiss that kept steaming up the phone camera and blurring the shots before they reached for a roll of paper towels.

What could be next on the stunting to-do list? They keep hinting at moving in together, with JLo leaving Miami for Los Angeles, and the sparkly pink diamond engagement ring may or may not make an encore appearance; so it’s anyone’s guess which list item will get crossed off first. The real question now is, did JLo’s forlorn but spiffily contoured ex, A-Rod, finally clear the sad, lonely dishes from his dining room table, or are they the spiteful bitches who keep calling the media outlets as “insiders“?
