Is Ben Affleck Wearing Something Jennifer Lopez Gave Him When They First Dated?

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are giving fans major nostalgia with their romantic reunion. The couple, who were dubbed "Bennifer" by the media, first met back in 2002 on the set of their film "Gigli" (via Us Weekly). Their romance took off and the pair began dating. The following year, the couple got engaged when Affleck popped the question with a lavish 6-carat pink diamond. The pair planned a September 2003 wedding, but shocked fans by postponing the nuptials just days before the ceremony. The duo claimed that "excessive media attention" was behind the decision to cancel. However, just a few months later "Bennifer" announced their split.

Both Lopez and Affleck moved on with their lives, eventually marrying and starting families. However, in April 2021, they found themselves single. Just days after Lopez announced her split from fiancé Alex Rodriguez, the pair were spotted spending time together. One week later, the pair were photographed vacationing together in Montana. Although the two haven't spoken out about their rekindled relationship, they're also not trying to hide it. In addition to their vacation, Affleck was spotted in Miami, Florida, where Lopez is working. The two hit the town together and were photographed going to the gym. Meanwhile, fans couldn't help but notice that Affleck seemed to have revived a very special token from his previous romance with Lopez.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez aren't hiding their relationship

According to People, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck seem to be open about their reunion. After photos of the couple heading to the gym together in Miami, Florida began to circulate online, eagle-eyed fans immediately noticed a very telling accessory around Affleck's wrist. The "Gone Girl" actor was spotted wearing a silver chain-link watch on his arm, the very same timepiece that Lopez was said to give to him during their relationship back in the early 2000s. The first to notice Affleck's nod to his epic romance with Lopez was a Twitter account dedicated to the couple. "It's the lil things..." the account tweeted along with photos of Affleck wearing the watch over the weekend, as well as a throwback to the actor sporting the accessory in Lopez's 2002 music video for "Jenny from the Block. Us Weekly reported that while some fans wondered if Affleck often wore the watch, it appears that he hasn't been photographed sporting it in the years since his split with Lopez.

Sources have previously revealed that Lopez and Affleck have been in touch every day since they reconnected. Insiders claim that the rekindled relationship has Lopez feeling good. "Jennifer is doing well. She seems very happy and excited about her future," an insider dished to People. It seems fans are just counting down the days until either Lopez or Affleck officially confirm their romance in an interview or via social media.
