The celebs really went for it this Valentine's Day. Not only did Emily Ratajkowski confirm those new relationship rumours with a funny semi-clad photo, but Chris Evans went on an Instagram stories spree sharing the cutest photos of himself with Alba Baptista. 

However, one A-list couple that really went the whole hog to celebrate the most loved-up date of the year is none other than Bennifer. 

Jennifer Lopez and her husband, Ben Affleck, have captured the hearts of millennials across the globe since they rekindled their romance after almost twenty years apart. The pair tied the knot last summer, saying 'I do' at an intimate Las Vegas ceremony in July, followed by a second wedding in Georgia in August.  

In recent weeks, they've been making headlines with their award show appearances - most notably, Ben becoming yet another meme thanks to his less than enthusiastic expression during the Grammys, and a lip reader stepping in to decipher what J-Lo said to her husband in an awkward moment that was caught on camera. 

But it seems that Bennifer decided to use Valentine's Day to prove that 'commitment is sexy' by getting matching tattoos. 

J-Lo shared photos of their inkings on Instagram, with hers placed just above her ribcage and Ben opting for a side torso tattoo. 

The Marry Me star's design shows an infinity symbol with their names woven into the lines, while Ben's shows two overlapping arrows with their initials, 'J' and 'B' above and below the crossover. 

Captioning the series of loved-up snaps, J-Lo wrote: "Happy Valentine’s Day my love 🤍 (Look for more deets on VDay coming #OnTheJLo soon…) #CommitmentIsSexy #ThisIsUsThen #ThisIsUsNow #THISISMENOW."

It seems that J-Lo is planning to update fans with more details in her newsletter, On The JLo
