Jennifer Lopez Pays Tribute To ‘Daddy’ Ben Affleck Via Thirst Trap
Jennifer Lopez appreciated Ben Affleck (and his chiseled abs) on Father’s Day. The singer and actress, 53, celebrated her husband yesterday (June 18) by sharing a thirst trap of the Batman star on social media. “Daddy Appreciation Post. Happy Father’s Day Papa,” Lopez captioned the Instagram post of Affleck, 50, showing off his six-pack. “And Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing Papas out there!! We love you and appreciate you more than you will ever know.”
The second slide featured an adorable video of the two in intimate moments from the present and the past, as well as working together. The first clip shows the Air director and star sitting in an office chair and turning around to show a big grin to the camera. Lopez cut in a few moments from her appearance on The View last month as she talked about what an “amazing dad” Affleck is. Though the two don’t have any children together, Affleck shares children Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 11, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
In the clip from The View, Lopez says, “It brings tears to my eyes. He is honestly the best dad I have ever seen. He is so involved. He teaches me about how to interact with the kids sometimes. He’s just so in tune, and he’s just such a brilliant guy anyway. He’s so learned in so many things anyway. And you can just tell that when he had his kids, he must have read every book and everything that you could possibly learn about children, and he applies, and he’s present. And that’s all you can ask for: a present, loving dad who cares and shows up every single day, and that’s who he is.”
Lopez shares twins 15-year-old twins, Maximilian “Max” David Muniz and Emme Maribel Muniz, with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony. Since Lopez had no shoutout for the father of her children, who has five other children, many fans criticized the “Waiting For Tonight” singer. One person wrote: “How about giving a shoutout to your kids actual father instead of all your fill in men that you’ve had in and out of those poor kids lives?” Another said, “I don’t know why …. But this post is somewhat cringe.” Meanwhile, another commented: “Where are pics of him with the kids? I love her, but this post is strange to me.” Another wrote: “Way to diss ur baby daddy.”
J-Lo also shared a photo of her father, David Lopez, on her Instagram Stories.
