The couple’s relationship came as a shock to fans, heating up again nearly 17 years after their failed engagement.  

For the romantic trip, Ben sported his classic grey jeans with a navy blue bomber jacket combo after flying to the other side of the country to be with his on-again lady love.

He stayed safe in the air and on the ground, and made sure to protect himself from COVID-19 by wearing a face mask.

Jennifer confirmed the end of her relationship with former New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez just one month ago after the pair dated for four years and were engaged for two years.

A source told PEOPLE last week that Jennifer had returned to LA to spend more time with Ben, reuniting once again earlier this week.

‘Jennifer was just in Los Angeles for a couple of days,’ a source told the publication. ‘She spent time with Ben. They have kept in touch every day since their Montana trip.’

The source went on to claim the pair are navigating a long-distance relationship, saying: ‘It’s a tricky situation since they live so far from each other, but they both seem committed to making things work.’

However, the Waiting For Tonight singer is said to be happy about the reunion, with the source adding: ‘Jennifer is doing well. She seems very happy and excited about her future.’

‘Right now they’re going with the flow and making plans to meet up as often as possible, but there’s still some discussing to do before they officially go public,’ an insider told Us Weekly.

‘It was Ben’s idea to go to Montana, a place he absolutely loves, and they had a wonderful time there just snuggling up and being together without any pressure.’

Ben and Jen first started dating in 2002 after meeting on set of Gigli. They soon became engaged and were set to get married in September 2003, but postponed their wedding and eventually broke up in January 2004.

‘It’s very clear they’ve fallen for each other again in a very intense way, but they don’t want to jinx anything by attaching labels or putting themselves under too much pressure,’ the source added.

‘When the time is right and assuming things continue to evolve romantically between them, likely a month or two, they’ll probably go Instagram official or step out hand in hand at a restaurant somewhere.’
