As it turns out, establishing the same kind of bond with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony, has been a bit more challenging, since he lives on the East Coast. In reference to Affleck, Lopez, who shares twins with Anthony, explained, “The transition is a process that needs to be handled with so much care. They have so many feelings. They’re teens. But it’s going really well so far. What I hope to cultivate with our family is that his kids have a new ally in me and my kids have a new ally in him, someone who really loves and cares about them but can have a different perspective and help me see things that I can’t see with my kids, because I’m so emotionally tied up.”
While Lopez shares Emme and Max, 14, with her ex-husband, Affleck and Garner have three kids together: Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10.
The news of their budding friendship comes just four months after Affleck and Lopez exchanged vows in Las Vegas. The pair secretly tied the knot in an intimate ceremony, which Lopez later confirmed in her fan newsletter, On The JLo.
Kudos to Jen and Jen for making a genuine effort to bring their families together.
