"Alex flew to the Dominican Republic yesterday," a source close to Lopez, 51, tells PEOPLE. "Jennifer was excited to see him in person. They are really trying to figure things out."

"It was a happy reunion," the source adds.

"Happy Monday. New week. New day," he wrote, tagging Lopez in the post. "Onward. Upward."

The two "are working on their relationship," a source close to the situation tells PEOPLE.

Over the weekend — after multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE that Lopez and Rodriguez had called it quits — Rodriguez told photographers "I'm not single."

Rodriguez's public appearance came after the couple told PEOPLE in a statement, "We are working through some things."

"They never officially broke up and talked about it but are still together. They hit a rough patch. But were not broken up," a source close to the pair told PEOPLE on Saturday. The source added that the speculation that arose last month that Rodriguez had had an affair after Southern Charm's Madison LeCroy "had no bearing on the rough patch at all."

"She's working in the Dominican Republic and he's in Miami so it's tough seeing each other especially with quarantining and COVID," the source added of Lopez and Rodriguez, "but they want to try to stay together."

Lopez also addressed their relationship saga in a TikTok posted on Sunday morning.

To the beat of Saweetie's "Pretty Bitch Freestyle," Lopez included several headlines, including two referring to her relationship to Rodriguez.

"Sunday brunch playlist," Lopez captioned the post.

The couple got engaged in the Bahamas in March 2019 after dating for two years. Over the past year, the couple has spent time at home during the pandemic with their blended families — Lopez's 13-year-old twins Maximilian "Max" David and Emme Maribel with Marc Anthony and the former MLB player's daughters Ella, 12, and Natasha, 16, with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis,
