Cast your mind back. It's 2003. You have a polyphonic ringtone on your Nokia 3310. You wear bandanas and own a hair crimper. Your eyebrows have been plucked to oblivion, you log onto MySpace and the song of the moment is 'Jenny From The Block' where Jennifer Lopez sings about still being the same woman she's always been despite her 'rocks', riches, fame and A-lister boyfriend Ben Affleck, who frolicks with her on a yacht in the unforgettable music video.

Affleck and Lopez, or 'Bennifer' as they were dubbed by the press (though in the past few days filmmaker Kevin Smith has claimed he is responsible for its origin), were tabloid favourites. Despite their widely-panned rom com film Gigli at the time, their undeniable chemistry, red carpet gazes of adoration and one heck of an engagement ring seriously captured the attention and hearts of the public and the media..

Almost a year after Lopez called off her engagement and parted ways with fiancé of three years and partner of two years, Alex Rodriguez, Affleck and Lopez's relationship has gone from strength to strength. So much so that the couple are engaged - again.

They were previously set to wed in the noughties, after Affleck proposed in 2002, but their nuptials were called off, which they put down to public scrutiny.

Affleck proposed to Lopez the second time round with an emerald engagement ring strikingly similar to the one he presented her with almost two decades ago.

As well as Lopez breaking up with Rodriguez prior to rekindling her romance with Affleck, the Gone Girl star experienced a split in the public eye when he separated from his wife of 10 years and the mother of his three children, Jennifer Garner, in 2018 and ended his romance with actor Ana De Armas last year.

Later, in July 2021, we really did travel back in time when photos of Lopez and Affleck looking very happy and in love aboard a super yacht landed. Lopez even shared a photo of herself kissing her new old love, confirming the rumours and reports with just one photo.

Here's everything we know about the couple...

Are Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck dating again?

They're more than dating, the pair are officially engaged.

A trailer for Lopez's Netflix documentary Halftime was released on Wednesday 18 May, showing her bursting into tears and feeling to end her Hollywood career after not being included on the 2020 Oscars nominations list.

The clip also shows Affleck addressing the scrutiny Lopez has faced under the spotlight.

In the video, Lopez is shown contemplating the possibility of being included on the nominations list, but is later disappointed to learn that she hasn't been.

She later says: 'It was hard,' adding: 'I just had a very low self esteem.'

While working out in the gym, she admits: 'I had to really figure out who I was and believe in that and not believe in anything else.'

The Marry Me star also explains in the clip that rather than work hard to get awards, she does so to allow her fans to connect with her.

The video cuts to tabloid covers being flashed on the screen claiming that she is tough, before showing Billy Bush asking about her about the size of her bum, to which she says: 'You did not just ask me that?'

Jimmy Kimmel is also shown on his late night show claiming Lopez can't sing.

'I've lived in the public eye and I really believed a lot of what they said,' she says in the clip, before a man is heard referring to her as a 'diva' and 'serial bride.'

Elsewhere in the clip, Affleck is shown having a sit down interview for Halftime, revealing that he asked Lopez how she deals with bad publicity, trolls and those who misjudge her.

Oscar-winning Affleck said: 'I asked her, doesn't this bother you?'

He adds that she responded: 'I expected this.'

The actress and singer goes on to say: 'I am trying to give you something of substance not just us out there shaking our f**king asses.

'I want something real.'

'My whole life I have been battling to be heard, to be seen, to be taken seriously.'

Earlier in May, the couple were seen out with Lopez's son Max, at which point they put on a public display of affection, as he looked otherwise engaged.

Lopez and Affleck went in for a peck on the lips while stood in a car park.

The singer was dressed in a sleeveless turtleneck top, dark jeans and platform heels, accessorised with dark shades, and Affleck donned a similarly pared-back look, offset with a plaid shirt that he layered over a graphic T-shirt.

Prior to that, the pair were spotted house hunting in LA, after reports previously circulated about them having bought a mansion together.

The engaged couple, who are understood to have been searching for a new home since getting engaged in April, sported similarly styled looks for their latest outing, too.

Lopez wore a forest green blouse, which she tucked into high-rise jeans, and she accessorised with a green leather Gucci belt, gold hoop earrings and oversized sunglasses. Affleck keep things understated in a low-key shirt and khaki trousers.

Prior to that, they were seen holding hands in LA while wearing coordinating neutral-toned outfits. Lopez donned a white short-sleeved T-shirt and softly tailored grey Brunello Cucinelli jumpsuit, while Affleck wore muted trousers and a relaxed knit. Both completed their look with trainers.

The pair's outing followed the pair's notable absence from this year's Met Gala. Last year, Lopez wore a Ralph Lauren plunge dress to the star-studded event, while Affleck looked streamlined in a traditional tuxedo suit

In March 2022, it was reported that Lopez and Affleck bought a £37.8 million ($50 million) mansion together.

According to Dirt, the Bel-Air home spans 20,000 square foot and is complete with a theatre, four kitchens, an infinity pool, 17 bathrooms, a wine cellar, a wood-panelled office, dual showroom-style closets, and a marble bath. And that's not to mention the property is understood to boast both casual and formal dining rooms.

Lopez and Affleck are believed to have got the deal due to the home first being listed for £49.2 million ($65 million) by Texas Billionaire and hedge fund manager Todd Lemkin.

A source previously revealed to US Weekly that the couple could had been house hunting since last summer. 'Ben and Jen are spending almost every night together when they’re not working…they plan on moving in together very soon,' the source said.

'As far as Jen sees it, she and Ben have their whole lives now to set things up in a comfortable way. She intends to be an involved stepmom who’s there for Ben in that area, plus she’ll want him to make the same effort with her and Marc’s kids.'

TMZ's report indicated that 'the entire brood from both sides will be living' in the couple's home'.

In February 2022 Affleck supported Lopez at the Los Angeles premiere of her film Marry Me. The singer wore a white lace Giambattista Valli mini dress with Jimmy Choo heels, while her beau wore a black suit and couldn't keep his hands off her.

People reports the couple spent Christmas Day together. A source told the news outlet that the actor spent Christmas Eve in Los Angeles with his three children – 16-year-old Violet, 12-year-old Seraphina, and nine-year-old Samuel – with his ex Garner, and then spent Christmas day with Lopez, her 13-year-old twins Emme and Max, from her relationship with ex Marc Anthony, and the singer's mother.

'It was a pretty quiet holiday for them. They really enjoyed it after a busy fall,' the source said.

Seven months after the pair hit headlines amid rumours they were dating, Affleck has opened up about his partner in a rare interview with the WSJ.

Discussing the story of the pair's recoupling he told the publication: 'I can say that it’s definitely beautiful to me. And, you know, one of the things I really value across all facets of my life now is that it was handled in a way that reflected that.'

'And it is a good story. It’s a great story. And, you know, maybe one day I’ll tell it. I’ll write it all out. [Pauses] And then I’ll light it on fire. [Laughs]'

Right, we're not quite sure what he's lighting on fire here, but we're getting all sorts of feels.

The actor also discussed how fortunate he is to have been give second chances in life. 'I am very lucky in my life in that I have benefited from second chances, and I am aware that other people don’t even get first chances,' he noted.

'Life is difficult, and we are always failing and hopefully learning from those failures. The one thing you really need to avail yourself of the opportunities provided from that growth is the second chance. I’ve definitely tried to take advantage of that. I haven’t always been successful, but in cases in which I have, they’ve turned out to be the defining aspects of my life.'

On Sunday, October 31 the couple were spotted trick or treating in Malibu, California with Lopez's children and reportedly bumped into Affleckes' ex wife Jennifer Garner, with whom he shares children Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, nine.

'Ben and J.Lo went to Malibu Colony where Ben always goes,' a source told E! News. 'And Jennifer Garner was there too.'

'It was a planned family occasion,' another source told E!.

The publication also reports that earlier on Sunday the exes visited a farmers market together with their children.

Following their red carpet appearance at Affleck's The Last Duel premiere in New York on October 9 the couple were seen walking hand-in-hand in the Big Apple again in dreamy autumnal attire.

Leaving the Mandrake hotel, Lopez was seen wearing a dark brown leather and suede skirt, style with a coordinating cape, which featured suede and button detailing. She teamed the look with knee-high boots, a quilted handbag, a black rollneck jumper, gold hoop earrings and 1970s-inspired tinted sunglasses. Meanwhile Affleck sported an all-black look including a wool coat, jumper trousers, and trainers.

On Sunday September 26 the couple were seen walking through Madison Square Park, hand-in-hand, with the 52-year-old dressed in a green coat over a green dress and her beau in a pair of jeans and a dark jacket.

At one point the couple stopped in the middle of the street for a passionate kiss, with the duo wrapping their arms around each other.

The PDA moment came hours after the singer had appeared on stage in Central Park for the Global Citizen Live concert, attended by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

During her set Lopez was heard telling the crowd: 'We can do anything with love. Love makes miracles, trust me. I guess you could say, I don't know, I got love on the brain. Have love on my mind lately, I don't know what it is.'

The 52-year-old beauty donned a green plaid ensemble of a seafoam green coat over a fern green dress with a waist tie during the walk in Madison Square Park.

In a rare joint interview after Lopez was named Adweek's 2021 Brand Visionary on September 20, Affleck told the magazine how much admiration he had for Lopez and what she's achieved as a woman of colour working in the business world.

'I am in awe of what Jennifer’s effect on the world is. At most, as an artist, I can make movies that move people. Jennifer has inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country.

'That is an effect few people throughout history have had, one I will never know and one I can only stand by and admire with respect.'

It's what we love to hear.

Just a few days before, the couple were seen cosying up together on a movie night with their respective children at a park screening of School of Rock in Los Angeles.

Lopez wore a comfy oversized grey knit cardigan with baggy jeans and a Valentino canvas handbag. Affleck went for a casual all-black ensemble.

They seem to have been spending a lot of time together throughout September. Though the couple dodged the Met Gala's famous steps, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck sneakily reunited inside the fashionable event.

Posing with their masks on, Lopez wore a Ralph Lauren ensemble, including a faux fur coat and slit-front gown.

After weeks of paparazzi and Instagram courting, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck made their first red carpet appearance on September 10.

The official couple attended the red carpet of Affleck's film 'The Last Duel' at The Venice Film Festival and put on a loved-up show for all to see.

With him in a Dolce & Gabbana tux and her in a couture Georges Hobeika bridal white gown plus Cartier jewellery, the couple laughed, kissed and beamed their way through the exciting debut.

The pair arrived by boat at the Venice Film Festival on September 9.

Back in the US, on August 24 the couple were seen holding hands during on a shopping date in Los Angeles. For the trip the pair wore coordinated black ensembles, with the singer wearing a black tank top, midi grey pencil skirt and black pointed-toe stilettos, and Affleck opting for a black shirt, grey trousers and black shoes.

After spending the last few months dropping hints by way of Hamptons beach walks, dodging interview questions and attending family events together (read on for more), Lopez recently marked her 52nd birthday with a photograph of her kissing Affleck.

In a montage of photos of Lopez celebrating her birthday aboard a luxury super yacht in the south of France, wearing a Valentino bikini and sun hat, the final picture in the franchise showed Affleck and Lopez in a tight clinch, kissing. Naturally, the montage was liked almost 8 million times as fans rejoiced at the confirmation of rumours of a rekindled relationship.

Paparazzi pictures also emerged of the couple on the yacht and we are getting very strong flashbacks of the aforementioned 'Jenny From The Block' video which Affleck starred in, on a yacht, with his bikini-clad girlfriend. Later that day, photos emerged on social media of Lopez and Affleck continuing the birthday celebrations at a restaurant in St Tropez, where they were seen sat next to each other dancing along and taking photos.

A few weeks later on August 15, Lopez and her daughter Emme attended a celebrity shopping event where the singer reportedly picked out gifts for Affleck's daughters Seraphina and Violet as well as one for Emme. According to People, Lopez picked out a selection of 'birth flower' necklaces which included two corresponding with the Affleck's 15 and 12-year-old daughters. The outing occurred the same weekend that Lopez reportedly wiped her ex-fiancé Rodriguez from her Instagram account.

While Lopez is mother to 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme, Affleck shares Violet, Seraphina and son Samuel with ex-wife Jennifer Garner. The August shopping event was not the first time that Lopez and Affleck have made an effort to enjoy their newly-blended family. In July, the couple were seen at Universal Studios in Hollywood with three of their children - Lopez's 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme, and Affleck's nine-year-old son, Samuel. While Page Six has shared numerous photos of the couple enjoying their day out, one fan shared a clip on TikTok and later Twitter of the blended family boarding Jurassic World: The Ride at the theme park. The five-person party all wore see-through ponchos for the ride.

Prior to the confirmation of a relationship, on July 23, Lopez's longtime good friend Leah Remini shared pictures from her recent birthday party, which she'd made into a collage full of photos from the event. While watching this, in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment, a black and white Kardashian-style photobooth picture emerged of Remini and Lopez joined by Affleck too.

In the snap, Affleck is in the middle with his arms around the two friends, while Lopez places her hand on his chest. The photo marks the first time we've seen the couple together like this on Instagram and also shows that Affleck is being invited along as Lopez's dates to important events in her personal life. Cute!

While they might be spending a lot of time together, even in wider social circles, they don't appear to be ready to talk about it publicly. Lopez joined Lin Manuel Miranda for an interview with Hoda Kotb for the Today show on July 20th, to discuss their re-released charity single 'Love Makes The World Go Round', when Kotb pivoted to ask Lopez if she was happy because, 'you look happier, every time I see a photo of you and Ben, I'm like "she looks happier". Are we happier?'

Pausing, Lopez collected her thoughts and words before expertly bringing the attention back to the charity single: 'The song is out five years since we've done it and I believe that the message of loving one another and being together is never more relevant than it is right now.'

While Miranda squealed with delight at having witnessed an expert celebrity question dodge, Kotb pleaded: 'It's me you're talking to!' to which Lopez replied, 'I know, you can call me, you have my number.'

In July, Lopez was also spotted having 'liked' a throwback photo of Affleck on Instagram. A photo of the actor from the set of his 2010 film The Town, shared on the fan account @lopezaffleck, sees the Oscar winner wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the phrase 'Believe in Boston'. Lopez was among almost 3,000 fans who 'liked' the snap, which hasn't gone unnoticed by Bennifer's fan club.

'Jenn liked this omg omg omg, [sic]' commented one fan on the post. 'Jennifer liked,' another added.

The 'liked' post comes a week after the pair spent the Fourth of July weekend together in the Hamptons. Over the weekend of July 9, the reunited couple had flown from the east to the west coast, judging by the lates photos of Lopez and Affleck out in Los Angeles.

On June 13 the singer and actor were see kissing at Nobu in Malibu during Lopez's sister Lynda's 50th birthday party. In photos and a video obtained by Page Six (which you can see here), the Super Bowl performer and her rumoured boyfriend were seen in a deep embrace without a care for who was watching. For the night out, Lopez wore her hair back in a ponytail and showed off hoop earrings while at one point Affleck was seen leaning in to whisper something in her ear.

The former couple were first spotted together at the end of April, when Page Six claimed that the Argo actor and director had been seen arriving at Lopez's LA home, alleging Affleck had visited the star three times since she arrived back in the US after her stint in the Dominican Republic shooting her upcoming film, Shotgun Wedding. They had also both appeared, albeit separately, at the Global Citizen 'Vax Live' charity event, co-chaired by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on May 9.

A day after the event, the Mail Online published the first pictures of Lopez and Affleck together in seven years. The photographs reportedly show the two actors arriving back in Los Angeles after spending the weekend together in Montana (where photographs of them driving were also obtained). According to E! News, the duo spent a week holidaying in Affleck's chalet in the US state. The entertainment outlet cited 'multiple sources' suggesting that the pair's friendship has turned up a notch. 'Ben reached out to her to see how she was doing and they had dinner together a few times within this last month. It's natural between them and the chemistry is unreal. They picked up where they last left off and are enjoying each other's company right now,' reportedly said one source...

On May 31, Page Six published photos of Lopez and Affleck heading to dinner at celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck's new restaurant in Los Angeles. Affleck was photographed with his arm around his former fiancé, who was seen nestled into his shoulder while also wrapping her arm around him. According to the outlet, Lopez and Affleck then held hands as they made their way into the restaurant.

Are there memes and tweets about Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck meeting up again?

Following a flurry of memes and tweets in May when rumours of a Bennifer reunion first started, there was a resurfacing following Lopez's kissing-in-St-Tropez photo too:

While it might feel like we've been thrown back to the early Noughties, there were clear indicators that time has progressed. Namely, the advance of the internet and social media, and therefore internet reactions when the rumours first surfaced:

How long were Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck together, why did they break up?

The couple dated from 2002 to 2004 and became engaged in 2002.

But in 2003, their wedding was postponed days before it was scheduled to happen, with the couple confirming their break up in January 2004.

Revisiting a People magazine article from 2003, shortly before their nuptials were due to take place, a statement from the couple said the reason for postponing their Santa Barbara wedding was down to the intense media speculation they were subject to.

'Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date,' the statement read. 'When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate "decoy brides" at three different locations, we realised that something was awry. We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could be compromised. We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoiled for us, our families and our friends.'

In December 2021, Affleck candidly revealed what impacted their break-up, while speaking on The Howard Stern Show. The Gone Girl actor highlighted his own mistakes and media pressure as factors.

According to Entertainment Tonight he said on the show: 'I got f*cking hurt and angry, and felt like a fool. I would say [media attention] was about 50 per cent [of what destroyed our relationship]. The idea that people hate you and they hate you together and that being together is poison and ugly and toxic and the thing none of us want to be part of.

'And, "Who the f*ck would want to have them to dinner?" And, "What the f*ck are they doing together?"'

In 2010, while appearing on the Graham Norton Show, Lopez reflected on the immense pressures the media scrutiny put on their relationship.

'It was a lot. Honestly, I've never really talked about it before,' she said.

'I love Ben, he's a great guy but it was a lot for both of us to be under that type of siege for two years straight. We were on the cover of every magazine every week, it was just a weird thing. The media catches on to certain things and that just happened to be one of things and our relationship, I think, did suffer because of that. That wasn't the only thing.. but it definitely played a part in the dynamic of our relationship.'

What have Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck said about each other since their break up?

Both Lopez and Affleck moved on after their break up, with Affleck finding love with Garner, and years later with de Armas. Lopez also welcomed children, twins Emme and Max, with her husband Marc Anthony who she married in the summer of 2004 and separated from in 2014.

Both of the Jersey Girl stars have only had good words to say about each other since their early Noughties split. After Affleck won a Golden Globe (and later an Oscar) for Argo in 2013, Lopez appeared on The Ellen Show where she congratulated her ex.

'They were really hard on us in the press when we dated back in the day and on movies and things like that so it was a nice moment, it was nice to see him have that moment. I was really happy for him,' she said.

Affleck has also continued to praise Lopez, joining the outrage when the 51-year-old was left out of the Oscar nominations after her critically-acclaimed performance in 2019's Hustlers.

'She's the real thing. I keep in touch periodically with her and have a lot of respect for her. How awesome is it that she had her biggest hit movie at 50? That's f***ing baller,' he told the New York Times.

Last year, he also criticised the way Lopez was written about when they dated, telling the Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter podcast: 'People were so f***ing mean about her — sexist, racist. Ugly, vicious sh*t was written about her in ways that if you wrote it now you would literally be fired for saying those things you said. Now it’s like, she’s lionised and respected for the work she did, where she came from, what she accomplished — as well she f***ing should be!

'I would say you have a better shot, coming from the Bronx, of ending up as like [Justice Sonia] Sotomayor on the Supreme Court than you do of having Jennifer Lopez’s career and being who she is at 50-years-old today.'

In an interview with People for the news outlet's February 2022 issue, Lopez opened up about her newfound romance with Affleck.

She said: 'I just feel very happy and lucky to be in a relationship that's happy and loving, and I want to do everything I can to protect that and keep it safe. It deserves that, it really does. ... We hold it sacred.'

Comparing her relationship now to how it was when they first started dating two decades ago, she gushed: 'It's beautiful the way it feels very different than it was years ago. ... There's more of an appreciation and a celebration for it, which is nice.'

'When you find somebody and you really, really love them and you get a second chance at that? That is a really rare, precious, beautiful thing and we don't take it for granted.'

She went on to speak sweetly about Affleck, saying: 'I'm so proud of the him, I'm so proud of the man he's become that I've watched from afar.'

She continued: 'To see the person, the human being, the man that he is today, the father that he is today, the partner that he is — he is so everything I always knew he was and wanted to be.'

The mother-of-two, who referred to real-life fairy tales as 'a tricky thing', also spoke about how she can use her revived romance with Affleck to educate her kids.

'What I can teach my children is that real love exists.

'Some things can be forever, but it doesn't mean they just have a straight line.'

As for what the future holds for the pair: 'I just want my future to be full of love and happiness, with my children and my partner. I think everybody just wants to be happy, with somebody to go on the journey with and grow old with, and I feel good about that right now,' she said.
