JLo and Ben are said to be doing their best to keep things friendly for their kids' sake.

Affleck appeared on Kevin Hart's most recent episode of his Hart to Heart talk show and discussed what it's like being married to Lopez. The interview went viral when the star gushed about his leading lady; however, a spokesperson for Peacock tells RadarOnline.com that the footage was shot in January.
