People went crazy for the pictures as memories of the music video floated in the minds of many fans.
Sea nostalgia aside, Ben and Jen seem future-focused, intending to fix it a second time.
an insider told us weekly: “The last few months have been a real whirlwind.
“They are well aware that some eccentrics still see it as one big flashy attention span and roll their eyes at this speed, but it doesn’t give them an iota.
“They are fully committed to taking the next step and spending the rest of their lives together.”
Meanwhile, ex Katie keeps a low profile. His instagram Page notes she is a “film composer, producer, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, mother and patriot.”

Ben’s blame upsets fans
Ben was recently reprimanded for saying that he felt “stuck” in his marriage to Jennifer Garner and that it escalated his drinking.
The actor went after his ex-wife during an interview with Howard Stern where he claimed that the unhappy marriage contributed to his alcohol use.
The Argo star told the radio host, referring to his time with the actress: “Part of why I started drinking was that I felt stuck.
“I was like, ‘I can’t go because of my kids, but I’m not happy, what do I do?’ and what i did was [I] Had a bottle of Scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which didn’t work out.”
The former couple were married for a decade before calling it quits in 2015 and share three children together: daughters, Violet, 16, Seraphina, 12, and son Samuel, nine.
Fans may be loving the JLo and Ben material, but they weren’t happy for the star’s comments.
