Celebrity guests, songs, kisses and… even a cue: here are the images from the couple’s Christmas party
For their first Christmas as husband and wife Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have decided to anticipate the celebrations with a big party in their luxurious villa in Los Angeles, inviting many celebrities, from Jane Fonda to Kim Kardashian, passing through Billie Eilish, Doja Cat and Vanessa Hudgens.
J.Lo welcomed the guests wearing a shimmering green and gold long-sleeved gown and after the banquet kicked off “dancing and music.”
The Bennifers sang a duet to John Legend’s “By Christmas Eve,” as a pianist played the romantic tune for them. “It’s my sweetie’s favorite Christmas song,” the pop star said. He did his best not to disfigure in front of the guests, but the cue was inevitable. In the end, however, those present appreciated the effort anyway, encouraging him with an ovation.
At the end of her performance, Jennifer held Ben close to her and the couple indulged in an intense and romantic kiss. Shortly before, J. Lo had performed, alone, on the notes of “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” and a jazz version of “Jingle Bells”, only to then let everyone go wild with her “On the Floor” .
To celebrate Christmas, “Ben and Jen have chosen and decorated a huge tree with the help of their children, but the whole house is lit up with various decorations,” reveals a source close to the couple, who are expected to spend the holidays together with their children and to the Lopez family. “His mother and sister are fantastic cooks.” No indiscretion on gifts, but it seems that the Bennifers are planning a romantic getaway, a trip alone, to rest and relax. A project, however, still to be defined in detail, due to the professional commitments of the couple.
