According to a source from Us Weekly, Garner, 49, has given Lopez her “seal of approval,” noting that the two actresses have crossed paths over the years.
“J. Lo thinks Jennifer is a kind and wonderful person and an amazing mother,” the insider added.
Meanwhile, another source told Entertainment Tonight that Garner “is accepting of Ben” and there is “no animosity” between the former couple.
Garner and Affleck, 48, were married between 2005 to 2015 and finalised their divorce in 2018. They share three children: Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12 and Samuel, nine. Affleck was engaged to Lopez prior to his romance with Garner, but they called off their engagement in 2004.
It was recently revealed that Lopez, 51, is reportedly “packing up her Miami rental” and moving to Los Angeles to be with her former flame. The Hustlers star is said to be travelling “between LA and the Hamptons” during summer in the US, according to E! News.
“She is excited about a fresh start and pursuing things with Ben,” the source told the outlet. “They will be at their LA home soon.”
Affleck was first spotted hanging out again with Lopez in April, shortly after she and her ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez split. The Good Will Hunting actor was pictured at Lopez’s LA home multiple times in April and they were then spotted in Montana for a days-long trip last month.
The pair — who are also known by the moniker Bennifer — were engaged between 2002 and 2004 after meeting on the set of Gigli. They postponed their 2003 wedding days before they were set to walk down the aisle and officially split by January 2004.
