Now, it’s being reported that Lopez is looking to close the distance between them and considering relocating to Los Angeles — where Affleck lives — as she was recently spotted “scouting out new schools” for her kids in the area.
As OK! previously reported, although Bennifer’s rekindled flame may be heating up fast, they're a little more hesitant on when to have their kids meet one another.
The pair, who were previously engaged from 2002-2004, have not introduced their respective broods to each other — but a source revealed the two plan to get their kids together "soon." (Affleck shares daughters Violet, 15, and Seraphina, 12, and son Samuel, 9, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.)

“Jen and Ben rushed into getting back together," a source spilled. "They didn’t mess about jumping back into the relationship; however, they are taking things much slower when it comes to introducing their children.”
Since Affleck split from his ex-wife Garner in 2015, he had a string of failed relationships, most recently with Knives Out actress Ana de Armas — the duo amicably split in January after almost a year together — but it seems the Batman star always harbored lingering feeling for Lopez and was elated when the two reunited.
Affleck is reportedly “happier than he’s been in a long time” since reconnecting with his former fiancée. A source revealed that the Argo star says, “Jennifer has always been the one for him,” according to the recent print issue of InTouch.
The feeling is mutual, as the source claimed, “Ben and Jennifer both realize now that they never really got over each other,” adding that they often wonder “what could have been” if they never called it quits years ago.
