Ben Affleck can't hide his love for Jennifer Lopez.

The Academy Award-winning actor was the embodiment of the heart eyes emoji while supporting the Marry Me star as she accepted the 2022 iHeartRadio Icon Award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Tuesday (March 22). Standing in the audience, Affleck gazed lovingly at his girlfriend, clapping as she gave a passionate acceptance speech on stage.

The Icon Award celebrates Lopez' impact on pop culture and her continued presence touring the world and making waves on the radio. Not only did the "On My Way" singer win the major award, she also treated the audience to a career-spanning performance of some of her biggest hits, introduced by Pose star Billy Porter.

Lopez recently opened up about her rekindled romance with her former fiance. The couple were together in the early 2000s, splitting in 2004, but surprised the world by reuniting in 2021. Their relationship even surprised the "Jenny From The Block" singer herself.

"I don't think anybody was more surprised than us," she said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "No, you never could imagine something like that could happen. It's a beautiful thing."

Since rekindling their romance, the pair have kept their relationship mostly private, especially since the intense scrutiny of their relationship in 2004 is one of the factors that led to the "brutal" split. Lopez did, however, share the heartwarming surprise Affleck pulled off as they celebrated their first Valentine's Day together since reuniting. According to the On The JLo newsletter, Afflect created a personalized music video with photos of the couple throughout the years.

"Watching it made me think about the journey of true love, its unexpected twists and turns, and that when it's real, it actually can last forever," she said. "This seriously melted my heart."
