Ben Affleck & Ana de Armas walked with his kids, he wants them to ‘get to know her’

Over the holiday weekend, TMZ posted new photos of Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas taking a walk with his kids on Saturday. At first only TMZ had them so I suspect they paid a premium. None of the other major outlets posted those over the weekend, but they’re available for the plebe subscribers now, which is how we got them. Incidentally, that’s the same photo agency that had the exclusives of Ben and Ana on a beach in Costa Rica. I wonder how they also knew to be there when Ben and Ana stepped out for the first time with his kids.

Of course there are multiple stories about how Ben is introducing Ana to his kids. They spent the night at Ben’s house when Ana was there too. I wonder if this is all storyboarded out by a team of people, because we last heard that Ana admires Ben so much for somehow juggling a career and co-parenting. Now she’s meeting his kids, how sweet. US, People and ET Online all had sourced quotes about this.

“He wants the kids to spend time with her so they can get to know her,” the source says, adding that Affleck is “very serious” about the Cuban star, who he met on the set of their upcoming erotic thriller, Deep Water. – From US Magazine

The source says Affleck, 47, is “very serious” about 32-year-old girlfriend de Armas. “He wants the kids to spend time with her so they can get to know her,” the source adds. “They are very happy together.” the source says Affleck “continues to work on co-parenting” with Garner. “Ben and Jen work together at that” – From two stories on People

“Ben and Ana are happy together and have enjoyed spending time with his family,” a source tells ET.

“He and Jen continue to work together on co-parenting,” the source added of Affleck’s ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, 48. “They make it work.” – From ET Online

Consider how open Ben and Ana have been about their relationship and how much regret he’s expressed, for years, about making his romance with Jennifer Lopez so public. Here he is involved with another celebrity who also likes the spotlight. He definitely seems like someone stuck in a pattern. We remember what’s next and maybe he’ll be able to avoid that this time.

At first I thought that Ana was socially distancing from Ben’s kids but there are several photos of her touching Samuel, 8. Also the newest photos of Ben and Ana are exclusives so we don’t have them, but you can see them on JustJared. The Daily Mail points out that Ben dyed his beard.

    I’m here for the three dogs.

      I notice that stroller cat wanted nothing to do with Affleck’s nonsense.

      When this implodes will he have Matt Damon do the stroll talking crap about Ana like he did with JLo? (Lock down is making me extra salty today)

      • Jules says:

        Stroller Cat is so above this mess. And quite frankly, is the only one that comes out looking good amongst the adults.

  2. julia says:

    What a perfect time to introduce your children to your girlfriend! I’m sure Jennifer loves the fact that someone the kids barely know has her hands all over them during a global pandemic.

    • jbyrdku says:

      No joke. I remember being a teenage girl and I’m wondering how polite the girls are being versus actually having an interest in ‘dad’s new girlfriend’.

  3. Stef says:

    Seems a little fast for him to involve her in the kids lives, but some people just move quickly.

    I too thought these two and their ridiculous pap strolls had an air of JLo 2.0. They may stay together a while but I sense it won’t end well for Affleck…

  4. Léna says:

    I’ll be honest, I’m tired of these two, but as the child of divorce, I’m happy when I see a blended family and a “young step mom” that includes the step kids. (I know it’s just a meeting and a walk, but I appreciate it)

  5. NatureLover says:

    I really don’t care about him and his destructive behaviour, but shouldn’t he be spending time focusing on his kids and his sobriety? I only say this because when I was a single mother with 2 kids for 6 years, my kids only met 2 guys that I had long term relationships with and I had primary custody with an ex out of state. I know it’s different for each single parent and it’s really none of my business what he does. I have trouble grasping at their exposure to all of his girlfriends in the past, but they may have never met them.

    Where the fudge is stroller cat, the true star of pap walks?!

  7. Barbara Owens-Dewitt says:

    He may be sober from alcohol but he still presents as the selfish, reactionary, emotionally immature, self-consumed alcoholic he has always been. He has been sober a little over 6 months-there is no way he is in a place to maintain a healthy relationship with boundaries while doing the daily work of sobriety. Having been sober nearly 10 years myself, I have always identified with him and his struggles but his behavior is maddening.

  8. MellyMel says:

    I weirdly find some comfort in their consistent pap walks in this time of uncertainty. Keep walking y’all. Also, beautiful dogs!!

  9. Mia4s says:

    Eh, I’m totally bored of them now. (Not great that I’m already bored of her and I’ve only seen her in two movies). One agency has the photos? The one that had the previous exclusive? Well. Well. Well. Using the kids in this attention-seeking nonsense…gross Affleck, just gross.

    The break up though? Oh I’ll be here with popcorn and cocktails. It will be epic. I only hope she doesn’t get pregnant, because then I’ll have to be mature and sad for the kid.

  10. lizardqueen says:

    Gosh, it must be so hard that the only space they have to exercise and get fresh air is in front of paparazzi. He can’t even afford some green space for his children to play, prayers 4 BenAna!

  11. Helen says:

    lainey thinks they might be pregnant, hence the over the top PR roll out, which would make sense. but then i took a look at the most recent pics from justjared and she doesn’t seem pregnant at all. he was never this demonstrative and out there with it with the kids’ mom. nor with his previous girlfriend (that we know of). wonder what’s going on, this all can’t just be for a movie promotion.
    p.s. i don’t ever want to read about the garner/afflecks complaining about the paparazzi again, while they so blatantly collude with them on the other hand, keeping the “industry” alive and kicking.

  12. Carolnr says:

    This is obviously a very serious relationship for Ben to publicly introduce his children to Ana! I think Jen believes this as well and that Ben is in a good place with his sobriety! I don’t believe that Jen would allow her children to be introduced to someone in just a casual relationship! ( I would hope Ben would not either) I think that they are going to be living together now. ( even after this quarantine) And with him having joint custody, the children will be staying with them. Obviously,
    they have been introduced to Ana before this public walk. Vacations are going to much different now…

  13. Christy says:

    Ben’s lovebombing her hard. Let the lockdown be over and he’ll do what he knows best – cheat and throw her under the bus. Ana maybe dumb and thirsty but I hope her publicist is well prepared when that time comes.

  14. Janice_scho says:

    My two cents. This is PR doubling down on the fact the media is highlighting the legitimacy of this relationship. The build-up to this was set in the leaked sources early last week, all those sources were used in the articles around this stroll ‘Jen trusts Ben to do what he wants with the kids, Ana thinks Ben & Jen are great at juggling co-parenting, the kids are a priority for Ben’.

    This situation suits all parties. Ben gets to seem like a handsome leading man who has his life together, Jen gets to lose the media tie to Ben whilst promoting her accessible mom persona, Ana gets great coverage and becomes a household name.

    I don’t know if the relationship is 100% legit, I think BenAna get on but I have no doubt it’s being co-ordinated to some degree (I’d guess a high degree) by PR.

    …and don’t even get me started on the Costa Rica parade!

    • milliemollie says:

      What about Costa Rica?! It’s well known that it’s the paparazzi capital of the world!:P

    • WilliamJoelene says:

      Thank you JANICE_SCHO for your thoughts, bc it’s plain this is all for show, but I never understood the possible reasons for it? Came here to say this is such a non story people can’t even be bothered commenting lol. I just hope Ana is in on it. It reminds me of Cruise and Cruz back in the day, I never understood that either.

  15. Marietta58 says:

    I find it amusing that in one of the strolls with the girls and their mom, they were obviously making fun of their Dad and Ana… they were playing kissy face with each other.

    In all of the pictures, the girls want nothing to do with Ana. I can only imagine how that must feel for her. Meeting your bf’s kids is nervewracking enough, but to do it in front of the whole world, I can’t even imagine. I know what it was like meeting my dad’s gf (now wife) and I was very suspect at first. It’s going to be interesting to see how the kids interact with Ana now that they have met.

    Did anyone see the pics from the DM on Monday? All of the other pics from that stroll are Ben looking super annoyed while Ana is laughing or smiling. In one pic, not on the DM, Ben even looks as though he’s rolling his eyes while Ana’s laughing. He’s on his way to being done with her. Only a matter of time.

  16. LaurenMichelle says:

    Ben never brought Shookas around his children…I think this romance is real. Yes, Ana went braless in the boiling heat on her birthday, but she is decent.
    Ben did not have an affair with Ana while he was married, like all the others. This is the best Ben has looked in years, and he looks healthy too.
    The children will be fine, and Ana doesn’t have her own children, which probably suits Ben.
    Maybe Ben & Ana can adopt their own exotic stroller cat for these fascinating pap walks.

  17. milliemollie says:

    Ugh, no masks in the justjared pics and back to their cringy pda. Let’s hope their movie pda is better or Ana gets dumped before she can call Rodrigo for one last pap stroll

  18. Tina says:

    It is probably about time for Thirsty and Thirstier to go on another vacation. They have made it clear how much they enjoy being alone together. We also know that Ben makes sure Ana is number one. Do they even realize how they come across? Also, I am sure the white dress is a preview of what it is to come. They are very calculated in their PR.

    Apparently the A- list actress who also does a lot of commercials is OK with her actor ex and the PR relationship he is having, and is going all in to help it succeed. Jennifer Garner/Ben Affleck/Ana de Armas
