Sep 18, 2023 by apost team
Everyone loves Jennifer Lopez; she stole the nation's hearts with her performance in the 1997 hit biopic "Selena" and hasn't stopped since. Lopez is currently in her 50s and is thought to be one of the most influential Latin performers in the world. Her movies have grossed over $3 billion, and she has sold around 80 million copies of her musical recordings worldwide.
In addition to performing, she has clothing lines, perfumes, and a charity that provides medical care to disadvantaged children. The star has incredible skills: singing, dancing, acting and producing. What you may not know is that she has 14-year-old twins. She married Marc Anthony in 2004 and had a set of fraternal twins, Emme and Maximilian.
Lopez and Anthony split up in 2011. The divorce was finalized in 2014, and Lopez got primary custody of the twins. As the twins have matured, it is uncanny how much Emme looks like their mother. Max looks a bit more like a merging of his two parents.
As for her love life, Lopez has found love once again with someone from her past — Ben Affleck. The pair famously dated during the early 2000s but parted ways before finding their way back to each other two decades later. They married in July 2022.
While there are many reasons why people would be so interested in Lopez’s life, from her danceable music to her fun movies to her eclectic, romantic life, there is one reason that truly stands out: her beauty. Over the years, Lopez has been candid about her beauty and skincare routine while showing off makeup-free looks, and she captivated her fans worldwide with an August 2023 post.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, who are often dubbed "Bennifer," are one of Hollywood's favorite couples. The duo attempted marriage twice and only succeeded on the second trial. They were regarded as the quintessential pair while dating several years ago. Lopez and Affleck met on the set of "Gigli" in 2001, and their relationship, which started in 2022, was quite popular.
Pictures of the two being affectionate flooded the media and frequently made headlines. Affleck also showed up in Lopez's music video for her song "Jenny from the Block." Paparazzi followed the duo around, giving them little room for privacy.
The lovebirds got engaged in 2003, and everyone seemed to be holding their breath for when they would become a couple. However, the wedding was postponed for security reasons. Shortly after that, their relationship was also called off in 2004. At the time, many people were shocked because it seemed like the twosome were made for each other.
Lopez married fellow singer Marc Anthony the same year her relationship with Ben Affleck ended. The marriage produced fraternal twins, Emme Maribel Muñiz and Maximilian David Muñiz. Lopez's and Anthony's marriage seemed perfect until it wasn't. The pair called it quits after seven years together and officially divorced in 2014.
Lopez went on to date Alex Rodriguez in 2017, and the pair got engaged in 2019 with plans to walk down the aisle in 2020. However, with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the stay-at-home orders, the duo postponed their official union. They eventually separated in 2021.
Affleck and Lopez surprised fans when they rekindled their romance in 2021. In July 2022, they eloped to Vegas with two of their children to say their vows after the stress of planning a celebrity wedding got to them.
While the families have blended beautifully, Lopez admitted that there are times it’s tough raising teenagers. In February 2022, Lopez opened up about how things have changed as the twins have gotten older. “They’re going to be 14 in a couple of days, and they have opinions about the world and their lives,” she told Today. “And now they see their dad, me as well, we’re in the public eye, what that means, what that means for them, school, everything.”
The mother of two is keen on keeping her kids away from the media, particularly after seeing an uptick in attention following her rekindled romance with Affleck. She said their priorities have changed since the heyday of their youth and told the outlet:
“I think we’re older now, we have kids, and we have a different sense of responsibility, and we have a lot more experience and we’re just in a different place in our life. We’re going to try to keep as much as we can sharing our happiness, but at the same time keeping it very sacred and close to our own hearts.”
The singer admitted it’s not always sunshine and roses as her kids enter their moody teenage phase. She told ExtraTV:

“My kids were at that age where they were challenging the status quo and really looking at you. And now it’s not all hearts and flowers anymore. Now, it’s like, ‘Why are you telling me to do that? ‘I don’t want to do that.’ Just constantly the push and pull of being a teenage mom.”
Also in 2022, Lopez celebrated her 53rd birthday in the romantic French capital of Paris alongside Affleck during their honeymoon. The pair shared an intimate dinner in the luxe La Girafe restaurant located in the Eiffel Tower overlooking the magnificent City of Lights. During the course of the night, Affleck reportedly “teared up and began to cry,” as Lopez "was very loving and cradled his face. She held him and kissed his forehead stroking his cheek. Soon he was smiling again and laughing,” a source claimed.
The night ended with cake and sparklers as Lopez began to dance while her husband filmed the magic moments. “They were both grinning and very happy,” the insider added. “She twirled around and was having an amazing time.”
Lopez and Affleck went on to celebrate their one-year anniversary on July 16, 2023. The duo went out twice that day, first with their blended family and then alone. Lopez shared some adorable snaps on Instagram the day after the event. The singer captioned the post:
"One year since our Midnight Trip To Vegas … 🤍♠️❤️ Go to On The JLo for a special surprise… #ThisIsMeNow."
Lopez celebrated her 54th birthday on July 24, 2023, but that doesn’t mean she’ll be slowing down any time soon. The workaholic star is known for consistently putting out big projects, from feature films and albums to cross-country tours and beauty campaigns. The woman can do it all! She even makes time in her busy schedule to head to the gym, keeping herself fit and healthy with workouts that range from resistance training to bulk up muscle and tone her arms, abs and glutes to circuit training, kickboxing and even dance.Jennifer Lopez (2019), (David Crotty/Patrick McMullan via Getty Images)
Lopez’s healthy diet consists of organic ingredients and sufficient protein, and the results are nothing short of fabulous. Lopez took to Instagram in July 2023 to post a photo of herself in just a robe and matching white Intimissimi lingerie set. “Getting ready to celebrate 🎂🎉” the star wrote in the caption.
Two days later, she posted snaps from her birthday party showing her dancing on a table and captioned it, “Birthday mood…all month!! Always a good day when Lola comes to play…”
Over the years, the bombshell has flaunted her natural look on social media, which most fans often find fascinating. However, the "Hustlers" star has at times been accused of having undergone cosmetic surgery.
In November 2013, the vocalist was cited as a case study by Doctor Ayham Al-Ayoubi, a facial plastic and laser surgeon. According to the Daily Mail, in the post since taken down, Dr. Al-Ayoubi added a split-screen image of Lopez and wrote, "These before and after pics of @JLo show many signs of #plasticsurgery - naturally pretty but now looks amazing."
Lopez did not keep quiet about this false accusation and fought back with a simple statement clarifying Dr. Al-Ayoubi's claims. She posted, "Sorry Sir, but I have never had plastic surgery of any kind. #fact." The doctor was quickly slammed by a dozen of the "On the Floor" singer's fans, who tagged him as a "fake doctor."
After being slammed repeatedly for tweeting without any proof, Dr. Al-Ayoubi posted an apology to the actress, claiming the post was "written by my assistant without my knowledge…" but still contradicted his statement and added, "Sometimes clever makeup can enhance features slightly changing their appearance @JLo."

There’s no denying that Lopez is a stunning woman. The singer, actress and dancer has been in the spotlight for several years and continues to amaze us with just how glowy and effortless she always looks. So it’s not surprising that the star started her own beauty line called JLo Beauty. The brand mostly focuses on skincare.
In a 2016 interview with People Magazine, Lopez discussed maintaining her health and beauty at any age.
“I try to always to get as much sleep as I can so that I can start the day well rested and do my morning meditation and affirmation,” she said.
Afterward, the “hard work” for Lopez would typically begin, and she exercises quite frequently.
“It’s no secret that I love dancing, so it doesn’t even feel like exercise to me,” Lopez said. “I freestyle dance with Tracy Anderson five times a week. We’ll incorporate light weights (three pounds) for the arms and moves that focus on the butt and thighs and engage the core.”
Lopez said she also did “circuit training,” which involved planks, pushups and boxing.
“It’s all about changing it up and keeping your body guessing,” she shared.
Along with this, Lopez has a good diet, ensuring she drinks plenty of water and eats her vegetables. The performer also has other tricks for keeping her skin so healthy and young-looking, as she loves “glycolic acid to get that healthy glow and clear skin,” she “never” goes to bed without taking her makeup off, and “SPF is k-e-y” as she believes it's vital to protect one’s skin.Jennifer Lopez (2019), (Steve Granitz/WireImage via Getty Images)
When Lopez launched her beauty line, fans were incredibly excited – especially since they were given a beautiful video from Lopez where she went makeup-free! In December 2020, Lopez posted:
“This moment is a dream come true for me. I am so excited to finally share my #JLOBEAUTY products with all of you. Each one plays a key role in how I keep my skin feeling and looking youthful. Head over to @JLOBEAUTY for the full lineup!”
In March 2022, Lopez shared more about her line in an Instagram post, giving fans yet another look at her glowy, youthful skin.
“When I’m moved by something I just have to share it! 📣 That “JLo Glow Serum is my secret sauce for that limitless glow,✨even while 🎥 filming nights for weeks straight on location far away! This serum (my baby) works for all skin types and can seriously revive skin back to SUPERSTAR status 🤩” she captioned the post.
While Lopez has shared several tips and tricks to keep her skin looking so great, people can’t help but wonder if the star has had any work done.
“I haven’t ever had Botox to this day,” Lopez said, as per The Daily Mail. “I’m not that person. I don’t have anything against people doing that; it’s just not my thing. I’m more about a natural approach to skincare… but I want (my products) to work,” she went on to say.
People were blown away by how gorgeous Lopez looked without makeup. One person commented, “She’s all natural!” Another person said, “ never thought that I will see you without makeup you are incredible you have the most beautiful complexion I've seen in a long time.” A third person simply said, “You are beautiful.”Jennifer Lopez (2022), (Frazer Harrison/Getty Images Entertainment via Getty Images)
Lopez also spoke to Vogue and detailed her beauty secrets.
As mentioned, she uses her own products for her “very simple” skincare routine. Among the things she uses are brightening serums, an antioxidant cleanser, a hyaluronic acid cream, a peptide eye cream, and a luscious body serum. Lopez also revealed that she prioritizes rest and happiness in her life. Evidently, being in the presence of her husband, her twins, and co-parenting her husband’s children brings the singer joy.
"The truth is if you start young, it will make a huge difference,” she explained. “Because you can put on all the makeup in the world, (but) if you're unhappy, if your skin's not healthy… you can't cover it up."
The same thought could be said in Lopez’s Instagram post on Aug. 28, 2023. In the photo, Lopez sported a makeup-free look, although a little eyeliner can be spotted.
The 54-year-old stunner sat in her bed, looking all glamorous despite being barefaced as she seemed to have just woken up from her sleep.
“Good morning and Happy Monday! It’s going to be a great week!!” she captioned her post, and said it was a little “Monday Motivation” before inserting the hashtags “Limitless” and “This Is Me Now.”
Fans were smitten with Lopez’s beauty in the selfie where she wore a lacy green lingerie.
“YOU ARE GORGEOUS INSIDE OUT 😍✨” a fan gushed.
“THE nicest, prettiest most talented down to earth star PERIOD !” another raved.
“She don't look close to 50 she looks 25,” someone testified.
“You are always beautiful even when you are without makeup, you are always beautiful 😍,” another fan wrote.
