Jennifer Lopez and her former fiance Ben Afleck have been pictured kissing for the first time since they broke the internet with rumours of a romantic reunion.

The glamorous couple – who dated in the early 2000s – have been romantically linked following the end of Jennifer's engagement to baseball star Alex Rodriguez, and Ben's split from actress Ana de Armas.

Now Jennifer, 51, and Batman star Ben, 48, appeared to have confirmed suspicions with a rather steamy display at glam restaurant Nobu in Malibu, California on Sunday.

In the snaps, the Jenny from the Block singer can be seen locking lips with her former flame, as she places one hand tenderly on his face.

In another photo, Jennifer appears to be whispering something into the actor's ear.

According to reports from Page Six, the pair were joined by Jennifer's family to celebrate her sister Linda's 50th birthday, but Bennifer seemed to have eyes only for each other.

Video from the family gathering shows that JLo's children, 13-year-old twins Max and Emme, who she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, were also at the restaurant.

During the dinner, the kids were seen showing their mum and Ben something on a phone.

It would seem that the twins' grandma – Jennifer's mum Guadalupe Rodríguez – was more than happy to catch up with her daughter's former boyfriend as last week.

A source told People that Guadalupe Rodríguez is "thrilled" about the rekindled romance.

"In the past, Jennifer’s mom and Ben were very close," the insider said. "Guadalupe loved Ben. She was sad when they couldn’t work things out years ago."

Meanwhile sources say Bennifer have been discussing plans for the summer revealing they're keen to take another trip away together.

After previous jaunts to Miami and Montana, the duo are reportedly making plans for the upcoming months in a bid to ensure they get some quiet time together.

Reports suggest another romantic getaway is on the cards as they want to be able to "spend as much time together as possible".

Ben and Jennifer have been hanging out together a lot recently and they certainly weren't "shy about being affectionate" when they went out for dinner recently with the pop star's friends.

"Ben had his arm around Jennifer at dinner and they weren't shy about being affectionate.

"He looked great and seemed very happy. She also looked happy and kept leaning into him. They looked very comfortable and relaxed together," an insider told E!

"Ben has been making the effort to make it work with their schedules. He's really making a huge effort. JLo thinks Ben has really stepped up and loves this version of him. It's comforting to her and she is smitten," the insider revealed.
