And with good reason.
The couple formerly known as "Bennifer" had a very serious relaysh back in the day, but as the story goes, each ended up with a different spouse, kids, a (couple of) houses—the whole she-bang. However, they were super-hot for each other, and it was a pretty bad bustup, with the two not staying in touch at all.
Until recently, that is.
According to Us Weekly, J.Lo's mom has reached out to Ben!
"Guadalupe reached out to Ben over email. She wanted advice for Jennifer," a source told the mag. "She always liked and trusted him. [Ben] replied back on email, wished her well and offered what he could."
We have confirmed that the story is accurate.
So, we must declare now that J.Lo is single, Jen Garner might wanna lock up her man because no doubt Jennifer herself will be calling Ben next. Count on it! (Hasn't happened yet, though, we're assured. But it will.)
Or perhaps we should be expecting Diddy to make a comeback alongside Jen, studded bandana headband and all?! We know how J.Lo loves to recycle her men!
Don't forget, Jen and Marc dated in the '90s before getting back together and eventually marrying in 2004, days after his divorce from Dayanara Torres was finalized.
And after a first marriage to Ojani Noa and a second marriage to backup dancer Chris Judd, Marc was Jen's third husband.
Gosh, is it too soon to make a film on Elizabeth Taylor's life, because now we're thinkin' that's who should play the role!
And in the meantime, it sounds like someone's mama is taking over the role of matchmaker for her little girl!
Maybe mother knows best this time around?
Which raises the question: Who do you think would win in a throwdown for Ben Affleck: Jennifer Lopez or Jennifer Garner?
Or should J.Lo just start from scratch and date one of these dudes (or dudette!?)
