Bennifer has reunited and is now “full-on dating” again. The couple, who were engaged from 2002 to 2004 has maintained a platonic connection since their split, but are now ready to give romance another shot.
“They have always remained close friends and that is the basis for their relationship,” a close source told Us Weekly. “They both respect and trust each other. Ben and Jen are also very attracted to one another.”
The insider also added that “Ben and Jen feel so close to each other very quickly. The old flame is absolutely rekindled. They picked up where they left off in terms of affection for each other.”
Affleck and J-Lo were first seen back together in late April, soon after she called it quits with former fiancé Alex Rodriguez. Just a few weeks later, the new couple took a vacation together to Big Sky, Montana.
Around that time, another inside source told Us “It was Ben’s idea to go to Montana, a place he absolutely loves, and they had a wonderful time there just snuggling up and being together without any pressure.”
After their Montana getaway, the couple was spotted again getting cozy in Miami. Allegedly, insiders saw the two exchanging kisses on a gym date, prompting even more curiosity about their then-undisclosed relationship status.
And although the pair have confirmed that they are, in fact, dating, sources say they’re still taking it slow for the sake of their kids. The couple says they “don’t want to jinx anything,” but that “love is there.”
