Ben Affleck, 50, and his wife Jennifer Lopez‘s son Max‘s bond was on full display on Dec. 19. The actor and his stepson, 14, were photographed when they shared a hug and kiss as they walked outside of a studio in Los Angeles, CA. Ben wore a beige blazer over a light-colored sweater, black pants, and gray, blue, and white Nike sneakers during the memorable moment, while Max donned a gray hoodie, black pants, and gray slip-on Vans shoes.
The outing comes just five months after Ben said “I do” with Max’s mother, Jennifer, 53. The husband and wife blended their families to make one big brood, which also includes Ben’s three children, Violet, 17, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, as well as Jennifer’s other child, Emme, 14, who is Max’s twin. Ben shares his kids with ex-wife Jennifer Garner while J.Lo shares her kids with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
Ben and Max’s outing together comes a couple of months after a source told us the Good Will Hunting star had been very helpful with the kids during the time Jennifer was filming her new sci-fi movie, Atlas. “Ben has really been stepping up with the kids, driving them where they need to go and helping with their homework,” the source EXCLUSIVELY shared with HollywoodLife in Oct. “Any downtime he gets he’s with the kids and Jennifer, he’s very zeroed in on being the best family man, it’s a role he loves.”
As they continue embracing life with their blended family, Ben and Jennifer make sure to take in solo time with each other. One of their most recent romantic moments was during their holiday party last weekend. Although they were surrounded by family and friends at the time, the lovebirds showed off their sparks when they sang a duet of John Legend’s “By Christmas Eve” at the fun-filled bash.
Videos of the special Christmas night were shared on Instagram and Ben and Jennifer’s love was on full display. In addition to their singing, which was accompanied by Stevie Mackey on piano, they shared a sweet kiss and hug that was followed by cheers from their guests.Click to Subscribe to Get Our Free HollywoodLife Daily Newsletter to get the hottest celeb news.
