Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck (opens in new tab) are officially blending their families.

The recently reunited couple (they were engaged from 2002-2004 and reconnected earlier this year after Lopez ended her engagement to Alex Rodriguez (opens in new tab)) were spotted out at Universal Studios in Hollywood with three of their children—Lopez's 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme (opens in new tab), and Affleck's 9-year-old son, Samuel. Lopez and Affleck (opens in new tab) are both dedicated co-parents with their respective exes, Marc Anthony (opens in new tab) and Jennifer Garner (opens in new tab) (in addition to Samuel, Affleck also shares two daughters—Violet, 15, and Seraphina, 12—with Garner).

Bennifer's blended family outing went down on Friday and was caught on camera by paparazzi (Page Six (opens in new tab) has lots of pictures of the couple's day at the theme park) and by fans. One video, shared on TikTok and, later, on Twitter, shows the couple and their kids (Samuel and Emme are clearly visible in the clip) boarding Jurassic World: The Ride (opens in new tab) at the park. Everyone in the party wore ponchos to protect their clothes on the notoriously splashy water ride.

Of course, the couple was also joined by a security team, since they prioritize their kids' safety above all else.
