Lopez and Affleck rekindled their romance in April before going Instagram official in July for the singer’s birthday.

Affleck told PEOPLE last year, “When you have children with somebody you’re connected to them forever,” adding, “and I’m very lucky she is the mother of my children.”
“I’m very grateful and respectful of her,” he said of Garner at the time. “Our marriage didn’t work, and that’s difficult. Both of us really believe that it’s important for kids to see their parents respect one another and get along, whether they’re together or not.”
Affleck explained it’s vital to him that his kids know how much admiration he has for Garner: “It’s important for my kids to know that I respect and care about Jen and she treats me the same way. I have a lot of respect and gratitude toward her. And I wish her the very best.”
