Jennifer Lopez has shared a glimpse of how she and her husband, Ben Affleck, celebrated their first Thanksgiving as husband and wife.

On Saturday, Lopez, 53, posted photos and clips on Instagram to show fans how she spent the Thanksgiving weekend with Affleck, her children, friends and other family members.

"This Is ... Thanksgiving Holiday #ThisIsMeNow #PhotoDump #Family," she captioned her post, referencing her upcoming album "This Is Me...Now," her first major record in eight years.

The photo dump included a snap of Lopez's 14-year-old son Max snuggling on his stepdad, Affleck, while sleeping. There's also a picture of the actress doing the same with her daughter and Max's twin, Emme.

The "Let's Get Loud" singer took several selfies with her sisters, Leslie Lopez and Lynda Lopez, during the occasion and shared them on social media.

Lopez invited her vocal coach Steve Mackey to the festivities as well. She uploaded a clip of Mackey frying something on a pan while she munched on one of the finished products.

Another photo featured the "Marry Me" actress slicing a cake, while a shot showed their table filled with different kinds of pies as well as oranges.

Lopez shared more pictures from the group's beachfront holiday, revealing that her mom Guadalupe "Lupe" Rodríguez and manager Benny Medina were also present at the Thanksgiving gathering.

Lopez and Affleck tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas in July, just a little over a year after they rekindled their romance. They wed for the second time in Georgia in August, this time with their family and friends in attendance.

The "Maid in Manhattan" actress, who shares her 14-year-old twins with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, recently opened up about her and Affleck's blended family in a recent interview with Vogue for her December cover story.

In the interview, Lopez praised Jennifer Garner — Affleck's ex-wife and the mother of his three kids, Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Sam, 10 — for being an "amazing co-parent," noting that the exes "work really well together."

"The transition is a process that needs to be handled with so much care," she explained of blending their families. "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."

Lopez reportedly formed "a friendship" with the "13 Going on 30" star.

"Now that Jen and Jen have been co-parenting, they've been getting to know each other better and have formed a very new friendship," an anonymous source told Us Weekly earlier this month, adding that Garner, 50, "can't believe how sweet" Lopez is to her kids with Affleck.

"They really enjoy each other," the source added.

In related news, Lopez announced Thursday her new album "This Is Me...Now," 20 years after her Affleck-inspired album "This Is Me...Then."

The upcoming album will feature 13 tracks, including "This Is Me ...Now," "Dear Ben pt. II," "Midnight Trip to Vegas," "Greatest Love Story Never Told" and "To Be Yours," to name a few.
