Knives Out star Ana de Armas has made her relationship with Ben Affleck Instagram official. The actress celebrated her 32nd birthday this week, and in the slideshow she posted on Instagram, Affleck made two appearances. This is the first time de Armas has shared a photo with Affleck since they started dating.
“Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes and love!” wrote de Armas in the caption of the nine-picture slideshow. “Cheers to another great year. 🎉🌈💕🙏🏻🌸🌹✨🎈.”
De Armas used a Polaroid filter for the pics to show off her birthday celebration. One of the photos was a selfie with Affleck, who had his arm around her waist. In the second pic with Affleck, the couple was facing away from the camera and enjoying a sunset. Affleck had his arm around de Armas in that photo, too.
The actress also shared photos of her chocolate birthday cake, the colorful balloons that filled the room, and some selfies from when she was out on a hike.
According to Us Weekly, de Armas met Affleck in November 2019 in New Orleans on the set of their upcoming movie, Deep Water, which is scheduled for a November 2020 release. In the psychological thriller, de Armas and Affleck play a married couple who have fallen out of love with one another and start playing “mind games” with deadly consequences.
After they wrapped shooting on the project, de Armas and Affleck vacationed in both her home country of Cuba and Costa Rica. Cameras spotted the couple on the beach in Costa Rica, and de Armas later posted some pics that Affleck took of her on Instagram.
