Per People, Bennifer dined in a private room for two hours at Avra Beverly Hills Estiatorio, a high-end seafood restaurant located in the ‘Golden Triangle’ of Beverly Hills, on Friday evening.
“They enjoyed Mediterranean food in one of the private dining rooms. Jen looked amazing,” a source told the publication.
“They were both in a great mood. Ben always looks very happy when he is with Jen.”
A source close to the 51-year-old actress-songstress-dancer-model-mogul said that Lopez “spends as much time with Ben as possible.”
Photos taken on their night out show the pair sitting next to each other in a car — and Lopez has a huge smile on her face as she appears to be laughing at something Affleck is telling her.
J.Lo and Affleck were first thought to be rekindling their romance in April, after the songstress’ split from ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez.
They previously dated from 2002 to 2004, and were planning a wedding in 2003, which was postponed just days before the ceremony.
According to Page Six, after their split in 2004, Lopez was “crushed.” She went on to marry singer Marc Anthony the same year of her split, while Affleck tied the knot with Jennifer Garner a year later.
“Jennifer always saw Ben as the one that got away,” a source told the outlet. “She was crushed after they broke up, though she felt at the time that she had no other choice but to call off their engagement.”
“As hot and heavy as their relationship was, they were on very different paths at the end of it,” the insider continued.
“Jennifer was ready to settle down and have kids, but Ben wasn’t keen on giving up his bachelor lifestyle just yet. In the end, she got tired of waiting for him to come around — even though it broke her heart to end things.”
Since calling off her two-year engagement to Alex Rodriguez in April, Lopez has been spotted cosied up and out and about with Affleck multiple times. In May, it was reported that they are “full-on dating” and “very happy.”
Affleck even flew Lopez’s mother, 76-year-old Guadalupe Rodríguez, to Las Vegas so she could make a cameo in an upcoming — but undisclosed — project.
