Jennifer recently described her romance with Ben as a "happy, healthy relationship".

The loved-up couple previously dated between 2002 and 2004, but Jennifer thinks they're both now older and wiser.

Reflecting on their romance, she said: "We're older now, we're smarter, we have more experience, we're at different places in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things."

Jennifer and Ben's romance created huge interest in the early 2000s.

But the “Jenny from the Block” hitmaker is convinced they will both be able to cope with the pressure this time around.

She explained: "I think we are strong enough now to know what's real and what's not, whereas when we were younger maybe some of those outside voices were a little bit tougher for us to reconcile and survive."
