Over the weekend, the exes were seen riding in a car together near a resort in Big Sky, where Affleck, 48, has a home. He was spotted behind the wheel with Lopez in the passenger seat.

That day, a source told PEOPLE Lopez "had a great time with Ben" in Montana, adding, "She is happy with him and enjoys spending time with him."

"[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," the source said of the pair who were later spotted arriving back in L.A. on Saturday on a private jet.
