JLo and Ben Affleck look loved-up during romantic dinner date in Beverly Hills as they 'plan to marry this year'

JLO and Ben Affleck looked smitten as they went for a romantic dinner date in Beverly Hills.

The singer, 51, and actor, 48 – who are "planning to marry this year" – headed for a meal at Avra restaurant on Friday night.

JLo showed off her incredible figure in tan shorts, a cream blazer and strappy heels.

Ben, meanwhile, kept things casual in sneakers, a shirt and a bomber jacket.

The couple seemed to be in great spirits as they left the eatery in a car, giggling and cuddling up in the backseat.

Their date comes just days after claims that they plan to wed by the end of 2021 because Ben is "desperate not to lose" JLo for a second time.

The couple have rekindled their relationship 17 years after they broke off their engagement in 2004 just days before their wedding.

Within a year, they were married to other people.

But Ben is keen not to let history repeat itself, and is said to be planning to get down on one knee "before the end of the year".

A source told OK! magazine that Ben wouldn't "let Jen get away" a second time as he "doesn't want to lose her again".

"The new relationship might technically only be a few weeks old, but in reality they are picking up where they left off," the source added.

"Jen and Ben both know everything about each other – the good, the bad and the ugly. They are not starting at square one.”

Bennifer reignited their relationship in April, and were seen soon after in May at the Global Citizen's Vax Live: The Concert To Reunite The World.

Days later, the pair were spotted hanging out in Los Angeles together as Ben left her home, before they headed to Montana, according to PEOPLE.

"They are meant to be together and will make it official before the end of the year," the insider added.

"Neither Ben nor Jen are messing about here. It isn’t a question of if they will get married but rather when," a friend agreed.

The sources added that Ben had been spending time with "her kids, mom and sister", as well as meeting up with Jen regularly.

Another insider close to Bennifer told Closer magazine that Ben is keen to get down on one knee on Jennifer's 52nd birthday next month.

"Ben wants to give long-lasting love another shot and is planning a romantic proposal on the singer's 52nd birthday on 24 July,” the source said.

Earlier this month, JLo and Ben were spotted locking lips and packing on the PDA at her sister Linda's 50th birthday party.

In photos obtained by Page Six, the famous couple embraced one another while at Nobu in Malibu, California, to celebrate her sister's birthday.

It's been nothing but sparks again for the newly reunited couple, as even JLo's mom, Guadalupe, is all about the relationship.

Even Ben's baby mama Jennifer Garner is happy her ex has found love again, with the singer having the "seal of approval".

The reunion comes after the Hustlers actress parted ways from her fiancé Alex "A-Rod" Rodriguez.

The Sun exclusively revealed that JLo was moving to Los Angeles to be closer to Ben and further away from Miami, which painfully reminds her of the former ballplayer.

JLo ended her engagement to A-Rod, 45, back in April, with a statement that read: "We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so."
