Rejoice, Bennifer stans, because it sounds like things could not be going better between the recently reunited Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck (opens in new tab). An insider told Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab) that the former fiancés, whose reunion first hit headlines at the end of April, "are both hopeful about their relationship this time around and putting the effort in."
Lopez and Affleck, who were engaged between 2002 and 2004, have reportedly "talked about the past and why things didn't work out," according to Entertainment Tonight's source. "They have both matured and are on the same page and it has been easy," the insider added.
"Jen is elated and really trusts Ben," the source continued.
So what does the future hold for Bennifer 2.0? Firstly, some very cute vacation pics, if we're lucky. Last week, People reported that the duo were "discussing summer plans" (opens in new tab) and hoped to "take a trip" together, a follow-up to their May getaway in Montana. They "want to spend as much time together as possible," an insider told the magazine.
At present, the couple are living on different coasts—J.Lo in Miami, and Affleck in Los Angeles—but the distance is proving no obstacle. "They will continue to travel back and forth between Los Angeles and Miami," the source told People. "They are very happy together."
