Time to turn the music up, because celebrations are officially in order: J.Lo just celebrated another birthday - all while making a shocking couple's debut on Instagram with her new man. Any guess who we're referring to? (Psst, you've seen him before.) Hang on while we break down the Let's Get Loud artist's latest festivities.

On Saturday, July 24, J.Lo took to Instagram to ring in her 52nd birthday with the rest of us. And, well, let's just say it was one for the books. Celebrating aboard a massive yacht, Lopez pulled out all the stops during her birthday getaway to the south of France. But her flashy boat (and um, abs for days) wasn't the only thing that caught our attention...

Of course, we're talking about the stud she was caught locking lips with while onboard. "52... what it do," Lopez wrote, alongside a picture of her and Ben Affleck. Yes, really: #Bennifer is officially back, guys. A lot to digest, we know. But from the looks of that picture (below)? The happy couple doesn't seem to be fazed one bit. Which begs the question: How long has this been going on?

In case you forgot, the former exes have sparked endless romance rumors ever since J.Lo and her latest ex, A-Rod, announced their split back in April.

“Everything is just amazing. And I feel great,” Lopez gushed to Apple Music’s The Ebro Show of coming full-circle (a.k.a getting back together with her ex, like these other celebrities). “It was about me realizing I was good on my own, and happiness starts within me. And once I realized that? Things happen. Things happen that you don’t expect to ever happen.” We’re with you on that one, Jenny.

And on that note, stay tuned - who knows what other surprises 52's going to bring? And of course: Happy Birthday Miss Lopez!
