But the newly reunited lovebirds are no more shy to hide their romantic affair leaving social media fans to gossip over the recent development.

A black and white photo of Affleck and Lopez shows them hugging each other as they decided to give a second shot at keeping their relationship going this time. The photo comes a day after sources close to the celebrities told media that both of them are the "loves of each others' lives."

Lopez's close friend Remini shared pictures of the new couple, who are together called 'Bennifer' among a series of other beautiful pictures on her Instagram handle. She posted the slideshow from her birthday party to express gratitude to all those who made her special day even more memorable.

The sweet photo of Lopez and Affleck has taken the internet by storm as it sees the once-engaged couple hugging tight and cuddling. The picture shows Lopez gazing at the camera fiercely as if she wants to declare 'Ben Affleck is mine.' Lopez has her right hand placed on the Armageddon actor's chest while he wrapped his right arm tightly around the singer and the birthday girl, Remini.

Reportedly, sources have revealed that although the couple is fully committed to each other, they are not in a rush to tie the knot. "They have been meshing their lives and families and don't feel the need to get engaged yet or even tie the knot. They have both been there and don't feel it's necessary," an insider told media.

"They want to do everything they can to make this work. They are madly in love." the source further expressed adding that Affleck, who has been to rehab for alcoholism, thinks Lopez is a good influence on him being a non-alcoholic health freak.
