We Nearly Missed Jennifer Lopez’s Secret Tribute to Ben Affleck in Her IG Post

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have kept fairly quiet about their rekindled romance. But this hidden clue in the singer’s social media post will delight any Bennifer fan who’s concerned about their budding relationship.

It all started last month when J.Lo posted a cozy slideshow on Instagram, featuring herself lounging in a white puffer coat and sweatpants. The caption read, “Cozy morning in my Super Puff [coffee emoji] [white heart emoji] [snowflake emoji].”

Eagle-eyed fans noted that the pics featured a fun nod to Affleck. If you look closely, you’ll notice Lopez is holding a mug with the letter “B.” While there’s a small chance she purchased a random “B” mug at Home Goods (because it was on sale!), there’s only one logical explanation: She’s sipping from Affleck’s cup.

Fans weighed in on the hidden tribute to Lopez’s beau in the comments section. One person wrote, “B as in Ben.” Another added, “You just made my day with this.” Someone else commented, “This beautiful babe. :) and I love the mug B.”

Rumors about a Bennifer reunion first started flying back in May 2021 when People reported that the pair had spent several days together in Montana. Two months later, Lopez made their relationship Instagram official by sharing a slideshow of images from their yacht vacation. The fourth pic features J.Lo smooching Affleck, and naturally, the internet went wild.

In September, they returned to the red carpet as a couple for the first time since 2003 when they attended the premiere of Affleck’s movie The Last Duel at the Venice International Film Festival.

Thank you, Jennifer. We really needed this.
