J-Lo and Ben Affleck have finally confirmed their relationship with an Instagram photo of them engaging in some PDA.

The pair, famously known as the portmanteau Bennifer, spent the weekend on a luxury yacht in St Tropez celebrating Jennifer’s 52nd birthday, and she was kind enough to give fans a gift of their own on her big day.

The singer shared a series of photos to her Instagram account from their vacation, making sure to include some snaps of the birthday girl’s incredible figure as she posed in a red string bikini with an orange triangle pattern, paired with a flowing floral cover-up and a fedora.

But what caught everyone’s eye was the final photo, which showed Ben and Jen sharing a passionate kiss at sea.

JLo captioned the post: “5 2 … what it do …”

The photo marks the first time either Ben or Jennifer has posted anything about their rekindled relationship on their own social media accounts.

Earlier this week, the couple were spotted in a photo montage on Instagram as they celebrated Leah Remini’s 51st birthday.

Lopez and Affleck originally began dating in 2002 after meeting on the set of Gigli, and nearly got married before calling it quits in 2004.

They then sparked dating rumours when they were photographed together back in May following Lopez’s split with Alex Rodriguez and Affleck’s breakup with Ana de Armas.

Although they remained tight-lipped about their relationship until now, the pair have been spotted getting cosy all over Los Angeles - including JLo’s home - and at a weekend trip to the Hamptons to celebrate the Fourth of July.

“They want to do everything they can to make this work. Even though their split many years ago was devastating for Jennifer, she has never had a bad word to say about Ben,” a source recently told People.
