“We moved in together. The kids moved in together,” she said. “It’s been, like, a really kind of emotional transition, but at the same time all your dreams coming true.”
They held their lavish three-day celebration on Affleck’s Georgia estate in front of friends and family — minus Casey Affleck.
“And it’s just been a phenomenal year,” Lopez said. “Like, my best year I think since my kids were born.”
“I love Ben too though,” Duhamel chimed in, joking, “I’ve probably loved him longer than you have.”
“I bet you have,” she quipped. “He’s dreamy, I get it.”
In her November Vogue cover story, the “Jenny From The Block” singer, 53, said that Affleck, 50, emailed her after his split from Ana De Armas to let her know he had raved about her in an interview. The pair never stopped talking since.
“Obviously we weren’t trying to go out in public. But I never shied away from the fact that for me, I always felt like there was a real love there, a true love there,” she told the publication.
“People in my life know that he was a very, very special person in my life. When we reconnected, those feelings for me were still very real.”

Affleck popped the all-important question for the second time in April last year. The pair, dubbed “Bennifer,” initially started dating in 2002 before ending things in 2004 after a brief engagement.
Shortly after they went their separate ways, Lopez married Marc Anthony in June of that year. Meanwhile, Affleck married Jennifer Garner in 2005.
