Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck may be living happily ever after, but one thing evades the newlyweds: having their own child together, a new report claimed.
Ben Affleck Grieves What He Can’t Give Jennifer Lopez?
Sources told New Idea, in its latest edition, that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck often fantasized about having a truckload of children. However, after they called off their wedding in September 2003, the lovebirds reportedly never got to realize their baby dreams.
While both Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are happy to have kids with their former partners, they are reportedly longing to have a child of their own. The “On the Floor” singer has 14-year-old twins Emme and Max with Marc Anthony, while the Batman star has three children – Samuel, Seraphina and Violet – with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
An unnamed source claimed:
“Ben and Jennifer are happy they had the opportunity to have children with their previous partners. But it’s been hard to accept that their one-time dream of having a child together will likely no longer be possible. They’ve missed the ‘baby boat,’ so to speak.”
Ben Affleck just celebrated his 50th birthday earlier this month, and it is highly likely he could still father another child. However, the insider pointed out that the chances of Jennifer Lopez using her own eggs to conceive with the Gone Girl actor are almost nil despite her incredible physique.
The informant shared:
“If Jennifer did decide to carry his child, it would most likely have to be through the user of a donor egg, which would defeat their original goal of having a child that was part of them both. Knowing they will never be able to meet that baby they once fantasised about having so many years ago is bittersweet. They do still lament about what a child of their own would have looked like.”
Both Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have yet to comment on the reports saying that they badly want a child of their own. So, avid followers of the newlyweds should take all these unverified claims with a huge grain of salt until everything is proven true and correct.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez Focus On Their Blessings
Despite the regret, it is claimed that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are counting their blessings and focusing on their five kids.
The source said:
“Ben is crazy about her twins, and she’s already shown to be a great stepmother to his children, which means the world to him. Jennifer’s twins will live with her and Ben and will visit their dad Marc. But Ben’s brood will live with their mum close by, while visiting Ben often.”
The same insider furthered:
“Ben and Jennifer are very much in love, and they know they must put the past behind them. They look forward to building a life together and have to accept the fact their one-time baby dream isn’t going to come true.”
To recall, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck just tied the knot again last weekend following their spontaneous wedding in Las Vegas on July 17, 2022. Page Six reported that the nuptials were held for three days.
There was a rehearsal dinner on Friday, and the actual wedding ceremony of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck reportedly took place on Saturday. On Sunday, the wedding ended with a barbecue and picnic.
