Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck couldn't keep their hands off each other as they put on a passionate display during a recent family dinner.

Over 17 years since J-Lo and Ben broke off their engagement, it appears that the duo has firmly rekindled their romance and couldn't be happier about showing it off.

In the snaps taken of the lovebirds, the 51-year-old songstress and her 48-year-old beau packed on the PDA as they smooched at the dinner table despite being surrounded by loved ones.

Heading to Nobu in Malibu on Sunday evening, the glamorous couple looked ever so smitten as they lovingly gazed into each others' eyes and passionately embraced.

At one point, Ben and Jennifer shared a prolonged smooch before smiling and cuddling each other as they enjoyed a slap-up meal with their loved ones.

It appears that Jennifer's twins Emme and Max – who she shares with ex Marc Anthony – also joined the couple for the fancy dinner. Ben was spotted sharing several smiles as he chatted to the youngsters alongside J-Lo.

The musician's sister, Lynda Lopez, also reportedly joined the cohort and it certainly pointed to things getting very serious between Ben and J-Lo.

An insider who spotted the couple also told People magazine that the A-listers were certainly very comfortable with each other.

"Jen and Ben sat next to each other and were very affectionate. They held hands under the table," an onlooker at Nobu told People.

The insider added: "The kids kept chatting with Ben. Ben seemed great. He was smiling and laughing. They ordered a lot of food to share. Ben had a Diet Coke."

Jennifer and Ben were the ultimate A-list item back in the 2000s after they met on the set of the film Gigli in 2001. One year later, Ben had proposed to the star with a gorgeous 6.1 carat pink diamond engagement ring.

However, just one day before their wedding in 2003 the couple announced that they were going to postpone their nuptials. In January 2004 is was reported that J-Lo had ended their engagement and just five months later she had wed Marc Anthony.

Despite almost a two-decade hiatus, and just months after J-Lo and Alex Rodriguez split, it appears that the two former lovers had been able to reconnect romantically.

J-Lo and Ben were engaged until 2004

Since the news broke in May 2021, it has been reported that the new couple have been planing several romantic trips together as they look forward to making even more memories in the future.

In what can no doubt be seen as further confirmation of the exciting reunion, it was also claimed that Jennifer has been researching schools for her children to attend in Los Angeles.

This has fuelled suggestions the star is preparing to relocate her children to California from their current home in Miami, Florida.
