"They have so many feelings. They’re teens. But it’s going really well so far. What I hope to cultivate with our family is that his kids have a new ally in me and my kids have a new ally in him, someone who really loves and cares about them but can have a different perspective and help me see things that I can’t see with my kids because I’m so emotionally tied up," she said, according to Marca.

The newlyweds' "blended family" includes Lopez's 14-year-old twins Emme and Max who she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, and Affleck's three kids, Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, who he shares with his ex-wife Garner.

Ben and Garner were together from 2005 to 2011. However, they soon parted ways in 2015. The 50-year-old actor got back together with his former fiance Lopez after 20 years and in July 2022, tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas. Lopez confirmed her private wedding in the newsletter 'OntheJLo' where she wrote, "Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world. Behind us two men held hands and held each other. In front of us, a young couple who made the three-hour drive from Victorville on their daughter’s second birthday—all of us wanting the same thing— for the world to recognize us as partners and to declare our love to the world through the ancient and nearly universal symbol of marriage."
