Having recently announced her split from Alex Rodriguez, Lopez and Affleck’s reunion comes 17 years after they called off their engagement in 2004. And now, the pair look to have reunited and are become more and more serious as time goes on.
“She wants to give it a shot with Ben,” a source said, as per E!. “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.”
“[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 while the world waits with bated breath for a loved-up announcement, it turns out that even Hollywood A-listers close to the pair are hoping for the same outcome. Matt Damon, who’s rather close to Affleck, has also publicly hoped for a reunion.
“I hope it’s true. I love them both. I hope it’s true," he admitted on an interview with Today on May 11. "That would be awesome.”
Until then, the world can only wait patiently for the pair to make the announcement. And in the meantime, we’ll be watching the “Jenny From The Block” music video and imagining part two of their loved-up yacht romance.
