Jennifer Lopez celebrates her 53rd birthday in Paris with Ben Affleck

Happy birthday, Jennifer Lopez!

The singer turned 53 on Sunday and celebrated her special day by enjoying a romantic walk in Paris with her new husband, Ben Affleck.

The newlyweds looked smitten as they were spotted cuddling up close as they walked past the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and the Louvre courtyard on Sunday.

The birthday girl – who also launched her new JLo Body booty balm on Sunday – turned heads in a stunning red dress that featured a keyhole neckline. She completed the look with a matching handbag and super high nude stilettos.

Meanwhile, Affleck, 49, kept it smart and casual, sporting dark trousers and a blue button-up shirt.

We’re told Lopez and Affleck stayed at the Hôtel de Crillon on the Champs-Élysées, home to the iconic fashion district on the right bank of the Seine.

An eyewitness told Page Six the couple walked through the Tuileries Garden, entered the LouLou Paris restaurant for lunch, and toured Dior’s new showroom and display space, dubbed La Galerie Dior.

On their way back to their hotel on Saturday night, the lovebirds stopped for an ice cream at luxury French sweets supplier Berthillon.

The previous night, the lovebirds had also enjoyed a romantic dinner in the City of Lights. We’re told they dined at the Plénitude rooftop restaurant at the Cheval Blanc hotel and stopped for ice cream at Berthillon on Île Saint-Louis on the way back.

The romantic getaway followed Bennifer 2.0’s wedding in Las Vegas on July 16 at A Little White Chapel. Minister Ryan Wolfe, who oversaw the nuptials, exclusively told Page Six that Affleck “gasped” as his blushing wife walked down the aisle.

The two tied the knot in Las Vegas earlier this month.

“He watched her walk down the aisle and you could tell he was like, ‘Wow, woah,'” Wolfe told us. “You could tell he was definitely right in the moment.”

Lopez confirmed she married Affleck via her “On the JLo” newsletter a day after their intimate nuptials.

“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years of patience,” she wrote, describing the ceremony as “Exactly what we wanted”.

The two stars met in 2002 on the set of “Gigli” in 2003, when Lopez was still married to her second husband, Chris Judd. The “Hustlers” star filed for divorce from Judd in July 2002, around the same time she and Affleck were first seen canoodle in public.

Lopez and Affleck got engaged a few months later, but eventually broke up in January 2004 before rekindling their romance last year.

In the time between their whirlwind romance in the early 2000s and the two getting married this month, Affleck married Jennifer Garner in 2005 while Lopez married singer Marc Anthony in 2004.

Lopez gave birth to twins Emme and Maximilian in 2008 before divorcing Anthony in 2014.

Shortly after, Affleck and Garner, who share children Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, divorced in 2015.
