After Affleck and Lopez split from Ana de Armas and Alex Rodriguez earlier this year, the two spent as much time together as possible.
A source recently told PEOPLE that "their relationship is very strong" as the two have been seen hanging out together, including spending time with each other's children. (Affleck is the father of daughters Seraphina (12) and Violet (15) and son Samuel (9) with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.)
Today, co-host Hoda Kotb Lopez said on Tuesday on the show that she noticed that Lopez looks a lot happier in recent photos of their revived relationship. Then she asked the singer to confirm or not and said, "Are you happier?" before Lopez dodged the question like an expert.
"You can call me. You have my number!" she joked to Kotb, 56.
