Welcome to the family Salsa 🌸💕

A post shared by A N A D E A R M A S (@ana_d_armas) on


It’s been two weeks since the Washington Post article came out calling Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas the “world’s first pandemic celebrities.” They’ve toned down the pap walks so much that we haven’t even seen Ana walking her dog. We definitely haven’t seen Ben and Ana together, although it’s known that Ben took a trip to Portugal (which was open to US tourists), and it’s thought Ana was with him. We saw some new photos of Ben out to lunch in Brentwood with Samuel on Friday, a photo of that is below, and there were exclusive photos of him out at a meeting on Tuesday, so he’s been back for a while. So is he visiting Ana? If so, why don’t the paps have photos of him outside her house? Is he not seeing her or is it easy for them to avoid the paps when they want to? Also, why don’t the paps have photos of Ana alone? The last photos we have of her out alone are from July 5th. Whatever is happening, Ana got a new puppy. She posted photos of the dog to Instagram, that’s above, and his name is Salsa. She wrote “Welcome to the family Salsa”

You can see Ben’s foot in one of the photos, the one of Ana on the lounge chair with Salsa. I checked and he does have those sneakers, so it’s not like he’s not seeing Ana. They just made a choice to tone it down after that article came out, and it was not a coincidence.

Salsa is adorable! Elvis is also a special boy and I hope he gets along with Salsa.

So how much longer do we have to wait for photos of them together? We got used to the over the top walks and I love how easy they are to cover. When they’re pulling faces like that, all you have to do is post the pictures, point out how goofy they are, and the story writes itself. Don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone.

Here’s Ben on 7-17:

This is him on 7-18 out in his classic car. The paps are still following him, they’re just not getting any pics of him with Ana for some reason.

Ben Affleck and girlfriend Ana de Armas can't contain their joy!

    Salsa is adorable! I’m still perplexed as to why they feel the need to share every part of this relationship with everyone. Why the overexposure?

    Cute puppy. Glad they toned down the “look how happy we are!” pap strolls, it was annoying.

  3. Tootsie McJingle says:

    Totally unimportant: I’m not sure if you pronounce her name A-na or Ah-na, but either way, are we calling them BenAna?

  4. Lila says:

    I miss them, although I don’t miss her disregard for wearing masks. I will take a hundred masked, hard-to-recognize celebrities over her.

    I think nowadays anyone who doesn’t want to be caught by the paps won’t be, tbh. I used to believe the whole narrative that celebrities are long-suffering and in a fishbowl — which I think was true of paparazzi culture for a while — but not so much anymore. Now it seems like people get pap’d when they want to be. Perfect example: Taylor Swift complaining about how she could never have a private relationship because the paps were always after her, until *gasp* she decided that approach kept backfiring and now we only see her with her boyfriend when she wants to remind us they’re still together. Wild how that works.

      One of the Best example of a famous couple is Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes. 10 years later and 2 Kids and Many people still Don’t know that they are together (they are married or no?). And at the begin, i was sure that paparazzi will be after them because they were so famous and followed. So if you want, you re not papped. She has let a hint because you see him in the second pic like she must post that to tell us

      • Case says:

        That’s so true. They’re two gorgeous, well-known actors with a lot of interest surrounding them (especially when they first got together) and people barely know anything about them or their children, and we VERY rarely see candid pictures of them.

    Both of her dogs are so cute! Does anyone know what kind of dog/breed/mix they each are?

    *Adjust tinfoil hat* Maybe she contracted COVID at one of her mask-less lunches. She is quarantining and he is not visiting her (much).
