The father-of-three appeared to be doing most of the talking, as an eyewitness told DailyMail.com that the Grammy nominee was listening “intensely.”

Additionally, she is credited with strengthening his relationship with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
Despite some media outlets reporting earlier this week that Lopez was “absolutely furious” after photos emerged of him and Garner hanging out, the insider insisted there is no ill will between the three of them.
The insider added that the Hustlers actress fully supports their “happy co-parenting” setup.
The insider even claimed that it was actually Affleck’s new romance with Lopez that ultimately helped him and Garner find peace.
“One of the things that got (Garner) and (Affleck) to a better place was – and is – JLO,” they shared.
‘Ben is healthy. The past drama and emotions of divorce are long gone and they all make it work.”
They added that Lopez and Garner are “friendly” to each other and that all of their children “love each other.”
“It’s really a very happy co-parenting situation,” the source said. “Everything is really good now and should be the same in the near and distant future.”

Closer to weekly reported that Affleck’s recent encounter with Garner “blindsided” a “jealous” Lopez.
However, a source told DailyMail.com this couldn’t be further from the truth and that the Dazed and Confused star and the hitmaker, who tied the knot last July, ‘have no drama in their relationship at all at the moment’.
‘Their relationship is still on fire. They are very happy with each other,” they revealed.
They added that while Affleck is looking forward to returning to work as the writers and actors strikes come to an end, the couple has “enjoyed” the extra time spent together in recent months.
“They want to get back to work and are looking forward to the strikes being over, but they are also really enjoying the more time they are spending together,” they continued.
“(Affleck) writes, JLO writes music, so they still have an outlet to create while enjoying each other’s time together.”
The source explained that Lopez is even turning to Affleck for advice on how to approach co-parenting with her ex, Marc Anthony, with whom she shares 15-year-old twins, Maximilian “Max” David Muniz and Emme Maribel Muniz.
In the past: However, a source insisted to DailyMail.com that Lopez fully supports the former couple’s “happy co-parenting” setup and has helped them “get to a better place” (seen with Jennifer Garner in 2014)

“JLO and Ben have had a lot of conversations about how she deals with (Anthony), and they all figured it out. It’s actually inspiring and fun to watch,” they said.
Photographers spotted Affleck and Garner meeting in Los Angeles this week before climbing into his black Mercedes-Benz together.
Days earlier, they were spotted sharing an affectionate moment in his car.
He was pictured leaning his head on 13 Going’s shoulder on 30 Star’s shoulder as she gave him a hug.
Affleck and Garner first met while working on films like Pearl Harbor and Daredevil, in which they starred. Garner was previously married to Scott Foley, and their marriage lasted from 2000 to 2004.
After that split, the actress moved on with Affleck, with whom she tied the knot in Turks and Caicos in 2005.
The couple started their family with the birth of Violet, which took place that year, and they added Seraphina and Samuel to their family in 2009 and 2012, respectively.
They stayed together until 2015, when they announced they had split, although they waited three years before finalizing their divorce.
