  • Jennifer Lopez took a break from filming to spend Thanksgiving with Ben Affleck and her kids

  • Lopez has been filming her upcoming Netflix thriller "The Mother" in Vancouver, Canada, this fall

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck took time off amid their busy schedules to spend Thanksgiving together.

After an "intense" few weeks spent filming upcoming projects, Lopez, 52, flew to Los Angeles to be with Affleck, 49, and her 13-year-old twins Max and Emme, Thursday, People reported. She shares her kids with ex-husband Marc Anthony.

Lopez has been filming her upcoming Netflix thriller "The Mother" in Vancouver, Canada, this fall, an unnamed source told the outlet.

While the "Justice League" star joined Lopez and her kids for Thanksgiving festivities at her home, he also celebrated the day with his own children, the report said. Affleck and his ex-wife Jennifer Garner share three children — daughters Violet, 15, and Seraphina, 12, and son Samuel, 9.

"Jennifer flew back to L.A. from Vancouver to celebrate Thanksgiving with her kids and Ben," the insider said. "The last few weeks have been intense for her."

According to the source, it hasn't been easy for Lopez to be working in Canada away from her loved ones, so she was looking forward to taking a break from filming.

"It's been hard for her to be away from her kids and Ben. She is very much looking forward to a short break," the source continued. 

A separate source told People that Affleck and Lopez are also planning to spend Christmas together with their families and "will both get a break." The singer-actress usually goes all out for the holiday and "makes it very special" for her children, according to the insider.

"[Jennifer] loves Christmas," the insider added. "This year, it will take some more planning since Ben wants to be with his kids too. They haven't made any specific holiday decisions yet and are still working it all out."

Their Thanksgiving celebration comes weeks after Lopez and Affleck were spotted packing on the PDA as he saw his girlfriend off at a Los Angeles airport. The couple shared a hug and many kisses before the singer boarded a private aircraft at the Van Nuys Airport earlier this month.

An unnamed tipster told E! News at the time that the two are "madly in love" and that spending time apart made them "miss each other like crazy and fall even more in love."

"They are making many plans and looking forward to their future together," the tipster added. "They try to fly home every weekend to see their kids and each other."
