Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck 'Talking Every Day' Since Romantic Getaway — And Now Celeb Pals Are Rooting For Bennifer 2.0
So, is Bennifer 2.0 officially a thing? Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's celebrity pals certainly hope so — and, according to new reports, so do J.Lo and Ben, who are "in touch every day" and are eagerly trying to figure out where to have their next romantic rendezvous!
"They are making plans to see each other," said an insider. "Jennifer is still very excited about how things are going with Ben."
While Bennifer awaits their next reunion, the multi-talented star is making time for family and work. According to PEOPLE, Lopez "is spending time with her kids in Miami" and "has been working, too." Lopez shares 13-year-old twins Emme and Max with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
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."
In fact, another source told Us Weekly, "[She] has feelings for Ben. They are taking it slowly, but things are moving in a romantic direction.”
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."

The Silver Linings Playbook actress then revealed she's shipping the couple by saying, "I'm so excited!"
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.
