The insider added that "their relationship is very strong," and Lopez "is beyond happy" with Affleck.

Affleck and Lopez's Hamptons getaway came one day after the two were spotted walking around Universal Studios Hollywood with their children, per photos published by Page Six.

Dressed casually in a white tank top, baggy pants and sneakers, the "Cambia el Paso" singer brought along Max and Emme. Affleck, meanwhile, donned a hoodie and jeans, and was seen with son Samuel beside him.

The couple originally began dating in July 2002 and got engaged that November before postponing their September 2003 wedding days before the date. They ultimately called off their engagement in January 2004.

Affleck and Lopez reconnected romantically following their respective splits from Ana de Armas and Alex Rodriguez earlier this year.
