Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are hanging out all over the country!
Based on new photos taken on May 23, People reports that the suspected couple are spending time together in Miami and that Lopez was “all smiles.” This comes just a few days after a source told Us Weekly that the pair reunited in Los Angeles following their highly publicized trip to Montana. That’s three states in one month! (Check out the Miami pics here)
“They have kept in touch every day since their Montana trip,” a source recently told People. “Jennifer is doing well. She seems very happy and excited about her future.”
In late April, the famous exes first sparked reunion rumors when they were spotted together near her L.A. home, but sources pushed that the hang was strictly platonic“They are friends…. They’ve never not been,” an insider told Page Six at the time.
However, things took a turn after it was reported in early May that the pair took a less-than-friendly trip to Big Sky, Montana. “She had a great time with Ben,” a source told People about the mini vacation. “She is happy with him and enjoys spending time with him.” A separate insider added, “[Jennifer] spent several days with Ben out of town. They have a strong connection. It’s all been quick and intense, but Jennifer is happy.”
Now it seems like the former costars—who were engaged from 2002 to 2004—are getting more serious. “She wants to give it a shot with Ben,” an insider revealed to E! Online earlier this month. “They never really had closure, and she has always wondered what could have been. The timing was never right and they were in different places until now.”
They continued, “[Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez] have always stayed in touch and had a strong connection…. She finally has had the opportunity to spend time with him and see where this could lead. They are very comfortable together and it’s easy. She wants to keep seeing him and is very happy.”
And hey, even Affleck’s BFF Matt Damon ships it! “I hope it’s true. I love them both. I hope it’s true,” he said on Today on May 11. “That would be awesome.” Now we just have to wait for confirmation from the actual parties involved.
