The couple was photographed by the paparazzi out and about, and they were not just by themselves. Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus’ relationship has been going great. So much so that they are meeting each other’s families!
Ben was seen heading to dinner with the SNL producer’s parents on Saturday.
This nice dinner comes nearly a year after the two made their romance public.
After knowing each other for years through Ben’s appearances on Saturday Night Live, they started dating and in July of last year, they also confirmed their relationship.
This happened no more than three months after the man filed for divorce from Jennifer Garner.
One insider previously told ET that Affleck and Shookus started their romance during the two years long separation (without divorce) between the two actors.
‘Lindsay and Ben are very in love. During Ben and Jennifer’s split, Lindsay felt villainized. Every day she spent with Ben out in the world for people to see felt like another day of public scrutiny, but her love for Ben was worth it. They both learned to stick by each other during those painful months,’ the insider dished.
In addition, Ben has been trying his best to get rid of his vices after struggling with addiction for the past few years and Shookus, ‘has been his rock.’
Meanwhile, he and Garner have continued to be friendly to each other after the split for the sake of co-parenting their three children together – 6-year-old Samuel, Seraphina, 9 and 12-year-old Violet.
They are so amicable that Garner even took to social media on Father’s Day to post a super sweet tribute to Affleck.
‘Our kids are lucky to have a father who looks at them the way that you look at them and loves them the way that you love them,’ she wrote.
