Jennifer Lopez celebrates Mother’s Day with throwback Bennifer video

Jennifer Lopez pulled a video archive from the early 2000s-era of Bennifer to celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday.

The “Jenny From the Block” singer, 52, tweeted and Instagrammed a clip of her and Ben Affleck getting spotlighted by courtside cameras at an NBA game on May 11, 2003 – when they were engaged the first time around.

The -faced couple wished their moms a “Happy Mother’s Day” in the video, while the announcer could be heard calling them “Hollywood’s hottest couple” at the time.

Lopez captioned the resurfaced clip on her social media, “Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommy’s out there!!! 💕”

The game the pair attended was a playoff match between the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs. It was held at LA’s Staples Center, now known as the Crypto.com Arena.

Lopez and Affleck appeared very much in love at the time, even sharing a kiss that was captured by photographers at the game.

However, less than a year later, the stunning couple would end their engagement.

In January 2004, a rep told People, “Jennifer Lopez has ended her engagement to Ben Affleck. At this difficult time, we ask that you respect her privacy.

“I am not going to confirm anything about his personal life,” Affleck’s rep then added. “We don’t want to get dragged into quicksand. Everybody wants a war. It’s not happening from our side.”
