IT’S a Hollywood love story for the ages - and it really has been ages.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck seem to be happier than ever since rekindling their romance earlier this year.

We learned they were back together in May, when Ben whisked Jen away for a romantic Montana getaway.

The pair were a golden couple from 2002 to 2004, but the split was painful. 

Jennifer revealed that it took two years to get over the relationship after the couple broke off their engagement.

In her 2014 memoir, True Love, Lopez said of the break-up: “It felt like my heart had been torn out of my chest.”

But now - after coming back together later in life - could the pair finally find their happy ever after?

Jennifer Lopez got tongues wagging at the American Music Awards on Sunday night by belting out new song On My Way in a wedding dress.

Here we reveal all the clues that the pair could soon be heading down the aisle.

  1. The wedding dress

At the American Music Awards, Jennifer Lopez looked stunning in a bridal gown as she performed her new single On My Way.

The track is the single from her new rom-com Marry Me, in which she stars with Owen Wilson.

J-Lo began the performance seated in a black gown, before quickly changing into the tulle-number complete with a veil which she tossed into the audience.

In September she wore another bridal-esque dress for her red carpet debut with Ben at the Venice Film Festival.

And there was a symbolic reason for choosing the white Georges Hobeika gown.

A source close to the actress said: “Jennifer requested white dresses only for her red carpet debut with Ben. White symbolises a new beginning and rebirth and she told everyone around her that this first appearance with Ben is an official rebirth of their relationship.”

Could her wedding dress also be a symbolic representation of her willingness to wed?

  1. The ring

If they do want to tie the knot, the couple could already have sorted their engagement ring.

Ben proposed to Jennifer back in November 2002 with a beautiful pink diamond Harry Winston engagement ring. 

GettyJennifer reportedly kept the $1.2million engagement ring Ben gave her in 2002 - and it's said to have skyrocketed in value '/caption '

He reportedly purchased it for $1.2 million, but it is now thought to be worth up to $12 million.

The couple decided to postpone their planned 2003 wedding, blaming “excessive media attention” in a statement.

But according to friends, J-Lo never got rid of it.

However, Ben was spotted browsing Tiffany engagement rings in Los Angeles this August. So perhaps he could be looking for a new ring after all.

  1. ‘Marry again? 100%!’

The pair have both been unlucky in love since their split in the early 2000s - but it hasn’t stopped them from craving their happy ever after.

J-Lo - who was previously wed to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd and Marc Anthony - said she would definitely consider a fourth wedding.

Grilled earlier this month, she told the Today Show: ...You know me, I'm a romantic. I always have been. I've been married a few times. Yeah, I still believe in happily ever after, for sure, 100 per cent....

Ben’s longest relationship has been with Jennifer Garner - the mother of his three kids - but the pair finalised their divorce in 2018 after 13 years of marriage.

More recently he was dating his Deep Water costar Ana De Armas, but the pair called it quits in January.

But Ben also seems to be seeking the real deal.

“I would love to have a relationship that was deeply meaningful,” he said last year. “And one to which I could be deeply committed.”

  1. The ‘look of love’

Ben and Jennifer can’t seem to help but gaze adoringly into each other’s eyes.

Body language Judi James reveals: “This is one of the most telling body language traits that show genuine love or affection between a couple.

“The muscles relax, causing a softened expression that is reflected in the eye shape, the upper cheeks tend to round and the mouth will pull into a smile that might even have some puckering due to the fact the person doing it is trying to avoid looking too ‘soppy’ in public.

“Jen always had that look when she gazed up at Ben but now he has it too. In some poses he’s almost unrecognisable because of it.”

The pair have also “notched up” their embrace rituals, according to Judi.

She said: “They now tend to be happiest with their arms thrown right round each other in a reciprocal gesture that implies happy intimacy and a desire to be as close and even as isolated as possible. 

“It also presses the front torsos together, making this a sign of strong sexual attraction and bonding, too.”

  1. Family blending

The couple are reported to be planning a family Christmas with their two sets of kids and Ben’s ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

More than anything else this indicates just how serious the couple are.

A source told OK!: “Christmas is all about the kids. Despite being totally opposites, Jennifer Garner and Jennifer Lopez have bonded over the children.”

The group all came together at Halloween to go trick or treating in Miami - with a source confirming: ”The kids are friends and wanted to go trick-or-treating together. It made sense that they all went together.”

Ben previously dined with both of Lopez’s kids in Malibu in June, and they had a blended outing at Universal Studios in Hollywood in July.

  1. They’re red carpet ready

After “going public” at the Venice film festival in September, Ben and Jennifer have made no secret of their romance.

Just days after their red carpet debut the pair attended New York’s glamorous Met Gala together, sharing an intimate kiss in front of the cameras.

According to J-Lo’s former publicist Rob Shuter this could hint a wedding is just around the corner.

He told Fox News: ...I don’t think either of them would be this open about being back together if they weren’t serious.

“Jennifer would not be letting us see them walk together in the park or on the red carpet if she didn’t see a future for them. 

“They could have easily met quietly, dated on the side and had some fun together. The world would have never known about it. 

“But the fact that they’re allowing us to see this tells me it’s serious....

  1. It’s written in the stars…

Jen was born on July 24 and Affleck on August 15 — meaning both fall under the sun star sign of Leo.

The star sign is ruled by the heart - making Leos passionate and romantic.

Occasionally their competing egos may see them butt heads - but Leos share the same values and can offer each other a great deal of support.

They’re also - like lions - known to crave physical touch, explaining the couple’s penchant for PDA.

With spooky accuracy Mystic Meg predicted back in January that Leos could be in store for boomerang love in 2021.

She wrote: “As the year unfolds, a secret crush revives and this time you can see it through.

“Female singer-songwriters, ice-cream vans, sci-fi ringtones and seaside paths all lead Leo to love.”
