Ana de Armas is moving into Ben Affleck’s place, an engagement is imminent

While this story seems to have originated in The Sun and that’s a questionable source, it’s being run by Page Six, which has had exclusives from Affleck’s team. You know they’re not running it without a nod and a wink. Plus it rings true based on other sources stories we’ve heard about these two. Supposedly Ana de Armas is moving into Ben Affleck’s bachelor estate, although she’s still keeping her rental place in Venice Beach. What’s more is that they’ll probably get engaged “any day now.” It’s been so long since we’ve had thirsty dog walking photos of these two and I’ve missed them. We’ve heard that they’re in Ireland while Affleck is working on a film so maybe they’ll come back soon and we’ll get pap pics again. Here’s that story from Page Six:

Sources tell The Sun [Ben Affleck] is preparing for his “fiancée-in-waiting” Ana de Armas to move in with him.

“This house has become Ben’s sanctuary, and it’s been the ideal place for him to make a totally fresh start,” the source told the Sun. “The kids spend a ton of time there and Ben has decked it out to incorporate his clean lifestyle plus offer them features to make it lots of fun when they come over.”

Inside the home are seven bedrooms, seven full baths and two half baths, an indoor spa, chef’s kitchen, screening room, a full gym and separate living quarters for the hired help.

Affleck is also planning on spending more time with Armas, whom he met while filming “Deep Water” last year

“There’s a lot of talk that Ben and Ana will make things official soon, and that this will serve as their main LA home,” the source told The Sun. “They spend a ton of time here at the moment, although Ana has still kept her place in Venice Beach. But they’re head over heels in love and in this for the long term, so their mutual friends are convinced it’s just a matter of timing before they’re engaged.”

[From Page Six]

I hope that Ben and Ana get engaged, that they hire the same photographer Demi Lovato used for her cheesy beach photos and that Ana Instagrams the hell out of it! You know that saying Dr. Phil didn’t originate but always repeats, “The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior?” It may or may not hold up in this case. Ben is 16 years older than he was when he ditched J.Lo right before their wedding and he’s since been married and divorced. I don’t think Ben and Ana will make it down the aisle but maybe their breakup won’t be as spectacular (although remember how Ben broke up with Lindsay Shookus?) I do think they’ll flaunt their engagement for a while. Also, how is Ana moving in if she’s still keeping her rental place?

    Ben told Ana to keep her appartment as an investment piece but you know it reassures him she’ll have a place to stay once he breaks up with her 10 days before the wedding.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      But it’s a rental so no real investment. She’s actually losing money.

      • Marietta58 says:

        I’m hoping what @Bibi meant was that Ana won’t know the difference. In other words, girl is dumb. If Ben is paying for this place, we all know he is, then he’s keeping it for her because he doesn’t want her fulltime.

        I’m assuming he can only handle her in small doses.

      • Bibi says:

        Marrietta58 exactly. Rented or not, there would always be a “good” reason to keep it. Ben would make sure she still has a place of her own because “he still wants her to be independent”, or “since there’s no space at the main house, he’ll pay for her lease so she doesnt have to worry about it” something that really feels like he cares lol until he dumps her 10 days before the wedding

      • M says:

        It reads to me as “she’s not my financial obligation and I’m not on the hook for partner/spousal support” if it ends, as she’s maintained enough independence.

        It also means his property doesn’t become their property as she maintains her own dwelling.

        Huge flashing red lights here.

  2. Teresa says:

    Her extreme reactions make me think she will go both ways of extreme. Extreme happiness, extreme anger, extreme sadness.
    Good luck to them, I’ve just never seen someone actually slapping their knees laughing on a dog walk.

    • PlainJane says:

      Never seen anyone slap their knees laughing while dog walking except when they are getting papped by the photographers they called to take photos to release to the media that prove how happy they are and how great everything is, even though one of them is a chronic alcoholic who can barely stay sober for more than five minutes and lets his co-parent do all of the child rearing, and loves to fall in love and get engaged, but doesn’t particularly care for marriage.

      Unless that’s happening.

  3. julia says:

    They’re annoying, but he seems stable and healthy. And they’ve lasted through covid. I can’t really roll my eyes at people who are in a happy relationship, even though they absolutely call the paps for their strolls. If it makes them happy, and Ben stays on this path of sobriety, then good for them.

    • minx says:

      I feel the same way. Their pap strolls make me roll my eyes but if they’re happy, and they seem to be, good luck to them.

  4. Angel says:

    I actually like them together lol. They entertained me a lot during quarantine. I wish them all the best.

    • Case says:

      I like them too. They’re harmless and seem happy. I don’t have the energy or desire to criticize that.

    • Heat says:

      Yeah – I think they’re a cute couple. I don’t think that it’s going to be a romance that will stand the test of time or anything. But for now, they’re fine and happy.

  5. Mia4s says:

    Their movie got pushed to next August. So they have to make it basically another year or that’s going to be one awkward press tour!! We will see. 😏

    • TeamMeg says:

      Came here to say I hope they make a movie together. Sounds like it’s already in the works! Do we know the plot? I hope it’s a rom-com!

      • Mia4s says:

        Psychological thriller from Adrian Lyne (he’s known for movies like 9 1/2 weeks, Unfaithful, etc.). Generally makes very sexualized movies.

        What was interesting is this year it had a traditionally prime awards-contender release date. The new date? Not so much. In fairness the whole market and industry are a mess right now, but they’ll really have to hustle if they want it considered a contender. Can’t the poor paparazzi get some rest?! 😉

  6. lola says:

    Is that really a smart idea?! This way, they can’t do any more house viewing pap walks! Think again, Benana!

  7. ThEHufflepuffLizLemon says:

    I think that floral dress is gorgeous and I want it.

  8. detritus says:

    She’s really milking the innocent young naif look isn’t she?

    I don’t think Ben makes a good partner, he was just leaking about how immature she is, but godspeed I guess.

  9. sara says:

    There were pictures of her back in LA with a friend last week.

    • Lena says:

      I assume you’re talking about the Daily Mail article that used pictures taken last June. That was strange.

  10. Lena says:

    Some of that Page Six article was flat out wrong “Ben Affleck has finally moved into the $20 million home he bought in 2018 after his split with Jennifer Garner” – umm -he moved into the house back in early 2018 so he’s been living in it for two years now. So long that Shookus helped him decorate it during their brief “reconciliation”. And “friends think they’ll be engaged soon” haven’t we heard that speculation since about April? I guess page six just wanted to write about them even if there is nothing more to say.

  11. lucy2 says:

    Good luck to them. Her especially. I hope he is able to maintain his sobriety and their relationship is healthy.

  12. Snappyfish says:

    @Lucy2 I agree. I like her. She was sweet in both War Dogs & Knives Out. I just think he uses women for his sobriety & stability & has proven himself a huge douchebag. But best wishes

  13. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Meh. I feel like this Ana’s people trying to MAKE something happen. Otherwise if they were actually getting engaged and moving in together, why would she be keeping her rental place?

  14. Noki says:

    Ana gives me stage five clinger vibes,she will not go away quietly if he does a Jlo on her. Plus even though she is 33 her body language reads like some love struck teenager.

  15. bluemoonhorse says:

    Make him wear a condom, Ana.

  16. Leigh says:

    Fiancé in waiting better NOT become a trend!! So cringey

  17. Tiffany says:

    Not gonna lie, I miss these two cheesing it up on the regular.

    If really just gave me some no muss, no fuss gossip to look forward to.

  18. PineNut says:

    It will be interesting when he falls off the wagon.

    • minx says:

      I don’t want to see anyone fall off the wagon.

    • Marietta58 says:

      You shouldn’t wish that on anyone. Such a douchy thing to say. I hope you never become an alcoholic/addict and have to go through what they go through everyday.

      • PineNut says:

        Maybe interesting was a poor choice of words. Sorry to have offended you. I don’t want to see him fall off the wagon but given his history, I think it likely. And don’t assume you know anything about posters here.

  19. Meg says:

    That older article where she was described as filling him up so he doesn’t feel the need to drink-was a big red flag for me and sign hes dragging his ex and the mother of his children for not being enough for him

  20. Lizzie says:

    Considering this “source” can’t even get the basic fact that Ben has lived in his home for more than two years correct, and it isn’t just now ready for him I’m calling BS on it. That and it’s from The Sun. I also don’t think Ben and Ana share any mutual friends. Plus there’s been half a dozen articles over the course of their six month PR extravaganza claiming she’s “about to move in” or has “moved in” or an engagement is happening any day now. Maybe this was her people trying to bury the story that Ben’s team put out about her being one to pick immature fights with him.

  21. Carolnr says:

    Sorry, I don’t like them as a couple. She does strike me as someone who would like to pick immature fights. I don’t think Ana is moving in when according to a source, she plans on keeping her rental. I think Ben likes the relationship the way it is & I think Ben will get bored of her & will eventually move on.

  22. Bets says:

    I would keep my rental until that prenup is signed and wedding over. Even then, I might keep it!
