Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez had a family night out at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

The “On The Floor” singer received the Icon Award at the star-studded party at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (3/22/22), and her boyfriend cheered her on in the audience with her son Samuel, 10 years. , and Jennifer’s daughter, Emme, 14, sat next to the “Argo” actor.

The 52-year-old singer and actress dedicated her win to her fans, and as the cameras turned to Ben, the 49-year-old Hollywood star – who has Samuel, Seraphina, 13, and Violet, 16. with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner – beamed as he applauded his partner.

The ‘Marry Me’ star – whose daughter Emme is a twin to Max, her two children with Marc Anthony – said in her acceptance speech: “Because of you, I can do what I love most in life, and that is the most wonderful blessing.

“This is your gift to me, and I want to say thank you.”

Meanwhile, it was just reported that the revived lovers are spending more than $50 million on a 10-bedroom estate.

The couple – who got back together last year – have reportedly reached a deal to buy a 20,000 square foot abode in the Bel Air area of ​​Los Angeles.

The sprawling property offers plenty of space for all of their children, with the couple wanting them all to stay there together.

The home – which has been listed for sale by billionaire Todd Lemkin for $65million – also has 17 bathrooms, multiple kitchens, a theatre, gym, bathtub for her and he and a swimming pool, and offers stunning views of the city in a very private location surrounded by trees.

According to TMZ, there are still contingencies that must be met before the sale can go through.

News of the new family home came after it was recently announced that the ‘Tender Bar’ star and her partner were looking for a London base this summer.

A source said: “There’s a trusted team out there looking for the perfect home for Ben and J-Lo for the summer.

“It will probably be the usual mansion in a leafy area on the outskirts of London. American stars love areas like Richmond which, as well as being lovely, is close to Heathrow airport, but also close enough to some major studios such as Leavesden and Shepperton.”

Ben has been tipped to star in the new ‘Barbie’ movie – which is being shot at Warner Bros. Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire – and that could be one of the motivating factors behind the decision.

Meanwhile, Jennifer recently described her romance with Ben as a “happy and healthy relationship” and thinks they’ve been in a better place since dating from 2002 to 2004.

She said: “We’re older now, we’re smarter, we have more experience, we’re in different places in our lives, we have kids now and we have to be very aware of those things.

“I think we’re strong enough now to know what’s real and what’s not, whereas when we were younger some of those outside voices were maybe a little bit harder to reconcile and survive. .”
