KEY POINTS

  • Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck enjoyed "Mediterranean food" at the restaurant
  • The two seemed happy and cheerful during the date
  • Lopez plans "to move to Los Angeles to start a new life with Affleck and her children"

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were recently spotted all smiles while having a date at a Los Angeles restaurant. The couple reportedly dined together Friday night in a private room at Avra Beverly Hills Estiatorio, where they cracked each other up while enjoying Mediterranean food.

“They enjoyed Mediterranean food in one of the private dining rooms,” a source told People. “Jen looked amazing. They were both in a great mood. Ben always looks very happy when he is with Jen,” the source added.

Photos of Lopez and Affleck that surfaced after their date night also showed Lopez cracking up while sitting next to the actor in the back of a car.

A source close to Lopez also told People that the A-list artist wants to spend as much time as possible with Affleck these days. “They are both acting very comfortable in their relationship,” said the source, adding that Lopez is “incredibly happy” with her rekindled romance with her ex-fiancé.

Earlier this month, a source told E! News that Lopez is ready to move to Los Angeles to start a new life with Affleck and her children. According to the source, Lopez already had plans to make California her permanent home.

“She will be between L.A. and the Hamptons this summer, but L.A. will be her base,” the source said. “She is looking at schools for her kids in the fall. She is excited about a fresh start and pursuing things with Ben. They will be at their L.A. home soon.”

Reports about Lopez and Affleck reigniting their romance first surfaced in April, when the two were spotted outside the singer’s home in Los Angeles. Photographs of them having a getaway together in Montana also made the rounds online in early May, reigniting relationship rumors. Their dates came just shortly after Lopez and Alex Rodriguez released a joint statement announcing their split after being engaged for more than a year.

Lopez and Affleck were co-stars in “Jersey Girl” and “Gigli.” They were engaged in 2002 but postponed their wedding just days before their big day in 2003. In January 2004, they officially broke off their engagement.
