Jennifer’s post in honor of her kids comes just three days after she enjoyed a date night with Ben at Wolfgang Puck’s new restaurant inside the Pendry hotel in West Hollywood. The “Jenny From the Block” singer and theJustice League actor, 48, rekindled there romancein April, shortly after she andAlex Rodriguez called it quits after a nearly two-year engagement.
Shortly after the news broke that Jennifer and Ben were giving their love another shot they were spotted on a trip to Montana. They also recently enjoyed a low-key vacationtogether in Miami. But, as HollywoodLifepreviously reported, Jennifer hasn’t introduced Ben to her kids.
“Jennifer’s excited for Ben to meet her kids, she’s so proud of them, but it hasn’t happened yet. She’s letting them set the pace,” a friend close to the Emmy nominee shared. “She’s very tuned into them so as a mother she’ll know when they’re ready. For now she’s been focused on reconnecting with Ben and enjoying her time with him.”
“Even though so many years have gone by in a lot of ways it’s like no time has passed, their connection is so natural. If you had told her a year ago that she’d be dating Ben again, she never would’ve believed it. But the universe works in mysterious ways and she’s just trying to stay open to whatever is meant to be and enjoying every step along the way.”
A second source who is close to the Oscar winner said, “Ben and Jen are working on each other and once that perfects itself, then they want to add the kids to the situation. Right now they are just happy that they are able to invest another honeymoon phase to their relationship and they want to see where their feelings take them.”
