The star couple shook rumors last week when photos surfaced of them during a romantic getaway in Montana, where they got to know each other again after calling off their engagement 17 years ago.
And while the two are currently on different shores – Ben is in Los Angeles as Jennifer is in Miami – the relationship is gaining momentum with intimate phone calls, it is claimed.
“Jennifer is in touch with Ben every day,” said a source People on Friday. “They’re making plans to see each other.”

She spends time with her kids in Miami. She also worked, ‘it added.
But Lopez dropped a hint Thursday night that her thoughts are on her famous ‘Bennifer’ days.
She took to Instagram to say that her favorite album to date is the one she made in 2002 when she was engaged to Ben. She and the Argo star were together from 2002 to 2004, and he featured prominently in the flashy music video for that record’s most successful song, Jenny From The Block.
At the time, she dedicated that album to Affleck. In the liner notes she shared, “You are my life … my only inspiration for every text, every emotion, every feeling on this record.”

This comes after People claimed Lopez on Thursday that Lopez has been “ in a different place ” since she last dated Affleck.
The Hustlers star has spent time with the two-time Oscar winner following her recent divorce from Alex Rodriguez, and sources have said the pair have both grown since their breakup.
An insider said: ‘That doesn’t seem possible [Jennifer] would come back with Alex someday, but can’t say that about Ben. Time has passed and they are all in a different place with children. ‘
Jennifer reportedly wants to spend “ as much time as possible ” with Ben, but sources claim they are not in a hurry yet.

The source added: ‘She wants to spend as much time with Ben as possible to see where this can go. They certainly don’t make plans for the future. ‘
Ben thinks their current arrangement is “good for them.”
Speaking to People magazine, the source said, “ Whether they end up together or not, it’s good for both of them now. And not so surprising. ‘
Meanwhile, another insider said recently that Jennifer, 51, is ‘thrilled’ to spend time with the ‘Argo’ star after taking a brief trip to Montana together.
They said, ‘She had a great time with Ben. She is happy with him and enjoys spending time with him. Jennifer and Ben – pictured together in a car near a Big Sky resort – are said to have revived their romance and have a “ strong bond ” with each other.
Another source said: ‘[Jennifer] spent several days outside of town with Ben. They have a strong bond. It’s all been fast and intense, but Jennifer is happy. ‘
The actress became engaged to her Gigli co-star in 2002 and they were to be married in 2003, but the ceremony postponed the ceremony just days before it was due to take place and officially split in January 2004.
