Actress Jennifer Garner has put the brakes on Jennifer Lopez meeting her and ex Ben Affleck’s kids, as the pair’s relationship gets serious.
The 49-year-old actress has reportedly said its "way too soon" for Ben Affleck to introduce their three kids to his new flame.
The couple married in 2005 until 2018, and have three children – Violet, 15; Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, nine.
Last week at a family dinner in Malibu, Ben was introduced to J-Lo's 13-year-old twins Emme and Max, who she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
However, protective mum Jennifer, is reportedly worried about letting her own kids get to know the superstar singer, 51.
A source told In Touch: “They [Jennifer and Ben] don’t see eye-to-eye about how their three children should be raised.
“Just because Emme and Max have met Ben and think he’s great, doesn’t mean Jen wants to follow in J-Lo’s footsteps with Violet, Seraphina and Samuel.”
The insider added: “Jen will give the introduction the go-ahead when she feels confident that Ben and J-Lo are going the distance and the children feel settled and comfortable enough to be around her."
Despite this hesitation for her children to meet the starlet, Jennifer has also reportedly said that she’s “happy” that her ex has reunited with his old flame.

In an interview with Us Weekly, a source told: "J-Lo has Jennifer Garner’s seal of approval.
"J-Lo thinks Jennifer is a kind and wonderful person and an amazing mother.”
It can clearly be seen that Ben is ready to throw himself into the relationship as he continues to make efforts with J-Lo’s family.
According to a source Ben is now directing an untitled film project in which J-Lo’s mother, Guadalupe, 76, made a "fun cameo," reported People.
The source shared how the Justice League actor and Guadalupe "were very close," adding: "She was sad when they couldn't work things out years ago. She is thrilled that they are back together now."
After filming hours, Jen's mother and Ben were spotted "gambling and having fun together at the Wynn hotel".
