But it seems Ben, 49, was moved to tears during a very emotional moment shared between the two during a birthday dinner at La Girafe, which is located on the Place du Trocadero, in front of the Eiffel Tower.
Surrounded by balloons, a source said that Jennifer immediately comforted her love with a hug after he was seen breaking down.
Breaking down: Ben Affleck was moved to tears during VERY emotional moment celebrating wife Jennifer Lopez’s 53rd birthday at La Girafe in Paris on Sunday evening
Happy birthday! Earlier that night, Ben flashed a rare smile as they headed out for their romantic evening
The singer and actress looked incredible wearing a busty long black dress which had a cut-out detail at the waist and Chanel pearls.
And her new husband could be seen flashing a rare smile as he held hands with his love, while looking dapper in a black suit and white shirt.
They were without Jennifer’s daughter Emme, 14, from her marriage to Marc Anthony and Ben’s daughter Violet, 16, from his marriage to Jennifer Garner, who have joined them on the trip.

The Selena actress confirmed she and Ben said ‘I do’ on her newsletter On The JLo, where she shared details of their intimate wedding held at the Little White Wedding Chapel.
The newsletter was signed ‘Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck’ and included candid selfies of the newlyweds and video of the couple preparing for their special day, including one of Ben getting ready inside the chapel’s bathroom and photos of J.Lo in her wedding dress.
‘We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,’ she wrote in her post.

The performer revealed that they ‘flew to Vegas’ and ‘stood in line for a license with four other couples.’
She continued: ‘Behind us two men held hands and held each other. In front of us, a young couple who made the three hour drive from Victorville on their daughter’s second birthday—all of us wanting the same thing— for the world to recognize us as partners and to declare our love to the world through the ancient and nearly universal symbol of marriage.
‘We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight. They graciously stayed open late a few minutes, let us take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible, evidently once used by the king himself (but if we wanted Elvis himself to show, that cost extra and he was in bed).

‘So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives. They even had Bluetooth for a (short) march down the aisle. But in the end it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined. One we dreamed of long ago and one made real (in the eyes of the state, Las Vegas, a pink convertible and one another) at very, very long last.
‘When love is real, the only thing that matters in marriage is one another and the promise we make to love, care, understand, be patient, loving and good to one another. We had that. And so much more. Best night of our lives. Thank you to the Little White Wedding chapel for letting me use the break room to change while Ben changed in the men’s room.
‘They were right when they said, “all you need is love”. We are so grateful to have that in abundance, a new wonderful family of five amazing children and a life that we have never had more reason to look forward to. Stick around long enough and maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at twelve thirty in the morning in the tunnel of love drive through, with your kids and the one you’ll spend forever with. Love is a great thing, maybe the best of things-and worth waiting for.’

The content included a video of Ben preparing for their nuptials inside the chapel’s pink bathroom.
‘And this was my wedding changing area!’ Ben, wearing a white suit, declared as he held the camera up to a scratched-up mirror.
The couple collectively known as ‘Bennifer’ obtained a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada on Saturday and exchanged vows in a ‘super small’ ceremony.

Jennifer will also be taking Affleck’s last name. The Clark County Recorder’s Office shows the pop star will be changing her name to ‘Jennifer Affleck.’ The marriage certificate, however, has yet to be filed.
Marriage officiants have 10 calendar days to submit the certificate to their office for filing, according to the Clark County Clerk’s Office.
A source close to the on/off couple – who previously dated between 2002-2004 – confirmed to the site: ‘They did, indeed, get hitched and the license is a signal they are now man and wife.’
Wife number two: It’s the second time down the aisle for Ben, who has three children – daughter Violet, 16; daughter Seraphina, 13; and son Samuel, 10 – from his decade-long marriage to Jennifer Garner, which ended in 2018
