Lopez shared a heartfelt Thanksgiving week slideshow to Instagram early Sunday morning, including a touching photo of her son Max, 14, lying on Ben Affleck’s shoulders during what appears to be a car ride.
“This Is … Thanksgiving Holiday ??,” Lopez wrote, with a few hashtags, including “#ThisIsMeNow” and “#Family.”
Other images in the slideshow include shots of J.Lo — who is a mother to both Max and his twin sister Emme, whom she shares with ex Marc Anthony — cooking up some seasonal cookies and showing off her winter attire: knit beanies, big coats, and some turtleneck action.
The video is soundtracked by Lopez’s song “The One,” off her 2002 album This Is Me… Then. The lyrics, sampling The Stylistics’s “You Are Everything,” work in the context of the post: “You are everything, and everything is you.”
Fans of the album are in for a treat, as This Is Me…Then will see a long-awaited follow-up with Lopez’s newly announced album, This Is Me…Now. The singer shared the news herself on Friday in a short clip that showed Lopez recreating the cover of the 2002 album and then transforming into 2022 J.Lo.
On the album, Lopez will share 13 new songs including tracks that allude to her relationship with Affleck, such as “Dear Ben pt. II” and “Midnight Trip to Vegas,” which references the couple’s first marriage ceremony in July. The initial LP was dedicated to Affleck, who she first dated in the early 2000s. The singer and actress previously called her 2002 effort her “favorite album.”
Lopez has used Instagram to celebrate her loved ones before. Earlier this month, the star shared a touching video of her and her husband holding each other close, with a frequently used TikTok audio clip to soundtrack it.
While Affleck also parents son Samuel, 10, and daughters Seraphina, 13, and Violet, 16, with ex Jennifer Garner, Lopez has opened up about the process of blending families with her spouse.
