As OK! previously reported, the Gigli stars spent time at Affleck's home in Big Sky Montana over the weekend, and apparently the trip went great. The source revealed that the mogul "had a great time with Ben" in Montana, adding: "She is happy with him and enjoys spending time with him."

The source continued, "[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."

While the power couple seems optimistic about the future, so do their friends! While appearing on Jackie Schimmel's "The Bitch Bible" podcast with fellow podcaster Heather McMahan, Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence broke the thrilling news mid-episode by yelling, "Breaking f**king news. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are back together. They're in Montana. They are on vacation with each other right now."

Lawrence isn't the only celebrity pal who is totally here for Jen and Ben. During a May 11 appearance on TODAY, Affleck's pal and fellow Good Will Hunting co-star Matt Damon was pressed by anchors Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb about what he thought of the duo's reunion. 

"There's not enough liquor in the world for you to get me to say something about that," the gorgeous actor hesitated at first. Then he lovingly confessed, "I love them both, I hope it’s true. That would be awesome."

In early April, OK! was the first to exclusively report that the Oscar-winning actor and the music superstar were "talking in private a lot" amid the end of her relationship with ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez and that Lopez was finding "comfort" in Affleck.

While Affleck and Lopez seem to be ready for another round of Bennifer, their respective exes are adjusting in their own ways. According to sources, the Batman star's ex-wife Jennifer Garner "wants what is best for Ben" but “doesn't want to be a part of the circus" surrounding his relationship. 

As for J.Lo's part, her baseball pro ex-beau is totally "saddened" by her newfound relationship with the actor and is "shocked" that the star moved on so quickly.
