The couple’s rekindled relationship came as a shock to fans; they reunited in May 2021 – 17 years after their failed engagement.
In April 2021, Jennifer confirmed the end of her relationship with Alex Rodriguez, a former New York Yankee after the pair dated for four years and were engaged for two years.
In mid-May, Jennifer spent some time in Los Angeles with Ben, igniting rumors they had in fact reunited.
‘Jennifer was just in Los Angeles for a couple of days,’ a source told People. ‘She spent time with Ben. They have kept in touch every day since their Montana trip.’

The couple went Instagram official with their relationship in July while on a European holiday in honor of her 52nd birthday.
The power couple have continued going from strength to strength in their relationship since then, attending red carpet events and spending time together around the world.
Jennifer recently suggested that things were different this time as they are older and wiser than they were two decades ago.
The On the Floor singer told People: ‘We’re older now, we’re smarter, we have more experience, we’re at different places in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things.’
The original romance between the pair sparked huge media interest and the ‘Bennifer’ nickname but JLo thinks they will cope with the attention this time.
She explained: ‘I think we are strong enough now to know what’s real and what’s not, whereas when we were younger maybe some of those outside voices were a little bit tougher for us to reconcile and survive.’
