- This weekend, rekindled power couple Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck took their kids out for some blended family fun in Los Angeles.
- On Friday, Ben and Jen took four of their kids—his daughters, Violet, 15, and Seraphina, 12, and her twins, Max and Emme, 13—to see Hamilton at the Pantages Theater in LA. Ben's mom, Chris, also joined the group.
- Saturday, all five of the couple's kids (including his nine-year-old son, Samuel, who skipped the musical) joined Bennifer at LA's famed Magic Castle.
Bennifer (opens in new tab) stepped out in Los Angeles not once but twice this weekend with several of their kids (collectively, they have five) in tow.
On Friday night, Ben and Jen (opens in new tab) took his daughters—Violet, 15, and Seraphina, 12—and her twins—Max and Emme, 13—for night at the theater to see Hamilton at the Pantages in LA. And, even though Ben's nine-year-old son, Samuel, skipped the outing, the actor/director's mom, Chris, did come along, according to Page Six (opens in new tab), which means Ben and Jen are officially introducing (/reintroducing) each other to every important generation of relatives in their fams.
According to TMZ (opens in new tab), Bennifer shared a sweet kiss (through their masks—which everyone in the party wore) at the end of the show, when the curtain closed. Ben also reportedly kept his arm around J.Lo the whole time and, miraculously, the very famous pair and their kids went mostly undetected, making for a really low-key, normal family night out.
Seeing Hamilton (opens in new tab) would be enough to make most people's weekends (/weeks.../months), but Ben and Jen weren't done being perfect parents just yet. On Saturday, the couple took all five of their kids (and Chris, again) for some wonder and awe at the famed Magic Castle (opens in new tab) in LA.
"Since Jennifer and Ben are in it for the long run, it's just a natural step that they all spend time together with the kids," a source told People (opens in new tab) of the family-focused dates. "They are not trying to rush anything, but they want all the kids to get to know each other. They are making the last few days of summer as fun as they can. Soon it's back to school and work."
