BEN Affleck's ex-wife Jen Garner "gave Jennifer Lopez her seal of approval" while the singer also thinks the actress is a "kind and wonderful person."
Fans will know that Ben moved on to date Jen in 2005 after he and JLo ended their engagement in 2004.
It seems like Jen, 49, is more than happy to welcome JLo, 51, to the family, according to Us Weekly.
"JLo has Jennifer Garner’s seal of approval," a source told the outlet, adding that the two actresses have crossed paths over the years.
"JLo thinks Jennifer is a kind and wonderful person and an amazing mother.”
The source also added that JLo and Ben's friends can see that they are truly in love and are "soulmates."
"Friends say they can see them staying together forever this time around," the source said.
"They love being together and the weekends away they had been spending together have really sealed the deal. They are very much in love."
The Gone Girl star’s relationship with his kids is also a huge plus for the Let's Get Loud singer, as the source continued: "Ben is great with kids and that is what really rekindled JLo’s attraction to him."
Jen and Ben share three kids from their 13 years of marriage.
JLo, on the other hand, shares 13-year-old twins with ex-husband, Marc Anthony.
Most recently, The Sun revealed that JLo was moving to Los Angeles to be closer to Ben and further away from Miami, which painfully reminds her of Alex Rodriguez.
A source exclusively told The Sun: "Before ARod, JLo spent more time in LA than in Miami, but while she was with him, Miami became their family base.
"[Alex's] ex is there and he is there a lot with his daughters – and JLo has strong roots in Miami as well."
The famous former baseball player shares daughters Natasha, 16, and Ella, 13, with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis.
The insider continued: "They were there all the time and [Jennifer] was living there most of the time with him and his girls, but now that they’ve ended their engagement, she is looking towards LA."
The source further revealed that "right now, Miami reminds her of HIM and for work, LA has always been more convenient."
According to the insider, when the Hustlers star lived in Miami, "she was always flying back and forth to meetings and photoshoots, rehearsals and for filming so obviously LA makes a lot of sense."
The source also addressed those pictures of Jennifer that TMZ published earlier this month, where she toured different Los Angeles schools to enroll her 13-year-old twins.
"She has been looking at schools for Max and Emme and is looking for a new house near Ben. NOT WITH HIM. It's way too soon and the breakup from ARod has been super hard on the kids. Much harder than it's been on Jen," the source said.
"Ben is tied to LA because his kids are there – so he has to be there," the insider added..
Despite the new Hollywood couple willing to make the distance work, the source claimed that "neither Jen nor ben do well with distance, so the move makes sense."
However, "she knows her kids need time to get used to it and they need some stability.
"Right now is a good time to check out schools and buy a house so that they can start with the other kids in their class in September – that's the plan, to be moved in and settled before the school year begins."
JLo ended her engagement to A-Rod back in April and a few days later, she and Ben prompted reconciliation rumors when the actor was spotted leaving his ex's home.
Since then, they have enjoyed a romantic getaway at a Montana resort, hung out at JLo's $18million rented Malibu beach house, and were even seen hugging after dinner in West Hollywood.
The pair, who met on the set of Gigli in 2001, postponed their 2003 wedding plans and announced they were splitting a few months later.
However, according to some industry insiders, they never fell out of love and are "picking up right where they left off."
