Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Express Desire for More Children: “We Would Love to Expand Our Family”

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are enjoying being part of a blended family after their surprise Las Vegas wedding in July 2022, followed by a spectacular second wedding at the actor’s $8 million Georgia estate one month later. The couple, who rekindled their love in 2021 after almost 20 years apart, share five children between them; Ben is dad to Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and son Samuel, 11, with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. He is also stepdad to JLo’s twins, Max and Emme, 15, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony. Although neither of them has spoken about expanding their family at the moment, they have expressed their desire for more children in the past. However, many of the couple’s fans often wonder whether Jennifer and Ben will welcome a child of their own.

In 2022, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez tied the knot twice. Previously, the singer admitted that she was open to having more kids. In an interview with People, she said, “I want to! I don’t know that it’s in God’s plan but I would like to try. I’m so open to it!” However, her wishes to expand her family may still stand with Ben. Jennifer has expressed her love for motherhood and how blessed she feels to have children later in life. On Today, she stated, “They just made my life so much better. I don’t take it for granted one day.”

Ben, Jennifer Garner’s ex-husband, shares three kids with her. Back in 2012, Jennifer revealed that Ben was desperate to have more children. “The fact that Ben wants another [baby] is true,” she told Extra before admitting that she was the one who didn’t want to add to their brood. “I can tell you that would be a pretty uphill battle with me. I am not anticipating having any more kids!” It is unclear what Ben’s relationship is like with JLo’s children.

According to celebrity news, Ben has a strong relationship with Jennifer Lopez’s children as he is not only loving and committed to his own children but also to his stepchildren. Last year on Father’s Day, Jennifer spoke about Ben’s role in her children’s lives and how much he cares for them. In a heartfelt tribute, she admitted that despite all her major accomplishments and career success, “nothing is more fulfilling to me than being able to build a family with someone who I love deeply.”
