On Sunday, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck had a date night at Nobu in Malibu wearing matching ensembles in tan and white. Lopez wore a summery long-sleeved dress in white with a drawstring waist. She carried a tan and black Christian Dior tote purse and wore red sandals that just peeked out from under the hem of her flowing skirt. She had her hair swept back into a bun, which loose tussled pieces around her face, and wore a small pendant and some rings on her hands.
Affleck wore a white button-down shirt and a pair of khakis with white sneakers and they walked holding hands as they passed through the parking lot to the restaurant.
The couple enjoyed dinner with Lopez’s 14-year-old twins, Emme and Max, who she shares with her ex-husband Marc Anthony. The couple recently returned from their honeymoon in Italy after celebrating their second marriage ceremony on Affleck’s Georgia estate. The newlyweds first married in an intimate Las Vegas elopement before inviting all of their friends and and family to the weekend long event in the southern state. Lopez shared details of the larger wedding On The JLo newsletter, sharing a photo of herself in a white Ralph Lauren wedding gown dancing with Affleck under a neon sign reading “Mr. and Mrs. Affleck.”
“When he saw me appear at the top of the stairs that moment it both made absolute sense while seeming still impossibly hard to believe, like the best dream, where all you want is never to awaken,” she wrote in her newsletter. “I would have had many of the same thoughts probably had I not been focusing so hard on not tripping over my dress, but when I got close enough to see his face, it made the same wonderful sense to me.”
She added, “Some old wounds were healed that day and the weight of the past finally lifted off our shoulders. Full-circle—and not at all the way we planned it. Better.”
J.Lo and Affleck were engaged almost two decades ago before calling it off and going on to marry other people. Lopez married Marc Anthony and Affleck married actress Jennifer Garner, with whom he shares three children.
