AceShowbiz - Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Garner may have never been seen together since the former married Ben Affleck, but they are surprisingly getting along well. Words are they have been building on their relationship since J.Lo married Garner's ex-husband.
If HollywoodLife's report is to be trusted, the two actresses will likely celebrate the holidays together. "They'll be exchanging gifts this year for Christmas, they've got a great rapport," a source told the outlet. "There's a real mutual respect and appreciation because of the kids. They are so happy and that just makes everything work."
Echoing the sentiment, a second insider claimed that J.Lo and Garner's friendship is "deepening" since the Bronx star married the "Peppermint" actress' ex-husband. "J.Lo is so thankful that her friendship with Jen has come leaps and bounds over the past several months," the source said. "They had been growing closer since she and Ben reunited their romance, but J.Lo and Jen's friendship is definitely deepening."
The informant went on to say that the "Hustlers" star is the "happiest" she's ever been. "She got her fairytale ending and she's grateful to have formed a really wonderful bond with Jen. They get along great, and things really couldn't be better," so the insider dished.
This is in contrary to recent report by Radar Online, which claimed that there's trouble brewing in J.Lo and Affleck's marriage. "J.Lo and Ben are dealing with a lot of issues right now," a source claimed, as their mothers reportedly butted heads.
"J.Lo's mom [Guadalupe Rodriguez] is incredibly close with her and Ben. She's championed their reunion from the get-go - and even plans on moving in with them someday. But the same can't be said for [Affleck's mom Chris Anne Boldt] - or Ben's other relatives - and Guadalupe finds that unfair and kind of unforgivable," one friend snitched.
Another insider claimed that J.Lo and Garner clashed behind the scenes. For this reason, the "Butter" star reportedly plans to split their three children instead of sharing the holiday as a family unit with her ex. "The idea of them cooking together or giving warm and fuzzy speeches - it's not going to happen," the source dished. "They'll shuttle between the two houses and have two holidays."
