Hoda said to Hustlers star Jennifer: "You look happier. Look, I just have to tell you, every time I see a picture of you and Ben, I'm like, 'She looks happier, she looks happier.' Are we happier?"

Swerving the line of questioning, she replied: "I'm always happy when I see you Hoda."

Jennifer then went out to awkwardly plug the song she was promoting with Lin-Manuel before Hoda tried again to get some intel on the romance everyone is intrigued by.

"Wait, it's me you're talking to, you know that," Hoda said.

"I know,' Jennifer said. 'You can call me. You have my number!" the Play musician hit back.

Jennifer and her fiance Alex split earlier this year, while Ben broke up with Knives Out star Ana de Armas in January.

Lopez and Affleck had first dated back in 2002 after meeting on the set of their film Gigli the year prior.

The pair got engaged in late 2002 amid a highly-publicised romance that saw the pair dubbed 'Bennifer'.

They later postponed their wedding in 2003 and ultimately called time on their engagement in 2004.

Following the end of their romance, Ben went on to date his Daredevil co-star Jennifer Garner and they married in 2005 and stayed together until their separation in 2015 and finalised their divorce in 2018.

Affleck and Garner share three children together: 15-year-old Violet, 12-year-old Seraphina, and Samuel.

Meanwhile, Lopez married singer Marc Anthony in 2004 and they had their twins Max and Emme in 2005.

The couple separated in 2011 and went on to finalise their divorce in 2014.

Since her marriage to Anthony, Lopez was in a relationship with former backup dancer Casper Smart from 2011 to 2016 before she began dating baseball player Alex Rodriguez in 2017.

They became engaged in 2019 but ultimately confirmed their split in April this year.

Around this time, Lopez and Affleck were spotted spending time together again.
