Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's romantic reunion is said to be a few months in the works, with the actor reaching out to the multi-talented star back in February,

Some 17 years after they split, Affleck, 48, emailed J.Lo while she was in the Dominican Republic shooting Shotgun Wedding to tell her "how beautiful she was looking", TMZ has claimed.

The publication also added that the Batman star, who was busy filming The Tender Bar in Boston, told Jennifer that he wished he could have been in the Dominican Republic as well.

The pair, who have been spotted on holiday at The Yellowstone Club in Montana, allegedly kept in contact after the Batman hunk initiated contact.

However, there isn't anything to suggest that the pair were romantically linked at the time.

Jennifer was engaged to basketball star Alex Rodriguez, 45, at the time. They announced their split in mid-April.

A source told E! News that A-Rod "reached out to his ex-fiancée to let her know he is disappointed with the situation" but that Jennifer "has no intention of patching things up with A-Rod and is planning on moving on with her life."

The singer fell in love with actor Ben in 2001 on the set of their movie Gigli, and he then proposed to her in 2002 with a beautiful pink solitaire engagement ring.

Unfortunately, they never made it down the aisle and called off their engagement in 2003 with a public statement citing "excessive media attention".

Their split was publicly confirmed in January 2004.

Ben got together with ex-wife Jennifer Garner shortly after, and they went on to have three children together but separated in 2015.

People have been anticipating a reunion as Ben always speaks highly of his ex-fiancé.

He told a New York Times reporter last year that Jennifer "should have been nominated" for her performance in Hustlers, going on to say "she's the real thing" and that he still keeps in touch with her.

Ben also told InStyle magazine last month that Jennifer is "the hardest-working person" that he's come across in showbusiness.
