The trio were pictured standing on the deck of a palatial Los Angeles home, and it appears the ten-year-old is already fond of his soon-to-be stepmom as he was seen sweetly holding the singer's hand as she cuddled up to her fiancé in photos obtained by MailOnline.

This isn't the first house the couple has shown interest in – but it may be a strong contender for their new family home after bringing Samuel along for his seal of approval.

Earlier this month, 'Bennifer' were spotted viewing the $165million 'Spelling Manor' – which was recently owned by Petra Ecclestone – after their deal for a $55million mansion in Bel-Air fell through.

The Holmby Hills mansion, now known as The Manor, was built over several years by Aaron Spelling and his wife Candy Spelling. Petra sold the property for $119.75million in 2019, making it the most expensive home ever sold in Los Angeles County.

Ben and Jennifer rekindled their romance in 2021

The sprawling estate is bigger than the White House and would certainly have a lot to offer Jennifer and Ben and their children from previous marriages. It sits on a 4.6-acre estate and has 14 bedrooms, 27 bathrooms, a bowling alley, cinema, tennis court, hair salon and swimming pool with Jacuzzi.

Jennifer announced her engagement to Ben on 8 April, sharing an emotional video in her On the JLo newsletter that showed her crying while admiring her 8.5 carat, natural green cushion modified brilliant-cut diamond ring, reported to be worth $5million.
