Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are continuing to celebrate her 52nd birthday in style with a glitzy dinner during their south of France getaway.

The newly-reunited couple spent Sunday evening at L'Opéra restaurant in Saint-Tropez, snuggling up together as fans took photographs before being caught by security.

Birthday girl Lopez beamed as a cake covered in sparklers was delivered to the table, as they were joined by pals on their special night.

They were later spotted sunbathing on a mega-yacht, seemingly recreated a similar scene from Lopez’s Jenny From The Block music video, where Affleck rubbed her upper-thigh as they lay next to each other.

Dubbed ‘Bennifer’ by fans, Lopez and Affleck first met on the set of their 2001 box office flop, Gigli, becoming a Hollywood power couple as their respective fame began to rise.

However, after getting engaged in November 2002, the pair called off their wedding by September 2003, citing the heavy media attention for wanting to postpone.

But months later, in January 2004, they decided to split completely, with no reason being given.
