Ben Affleck And Lindsay Shookus Planning To Elope Amid Pregnancy Rumors
It has been almost a year since we found out that Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus were an item, and the couple is still going strong. Shookus – a Saturday Night Live producer – is currently on summer hiatus which means she can spend more time with Affleck. The two have been traveling and spending time with family, and now there are rumors that Shookus is pregnant, and the couple is planning to elope.
According to Radar Online , Affleck and Shookus are headed to Hawaii to get married because they have a baby on the way.
“They want to do it before the end of the summer when Lindsay goes back to work on SNL ,” reveals an insider. “They love Hawaii and had a great time there in April when Ben was filming Triple Frontier .”
Earlier this year, the couple enjoyed a romantic vacation in Hawaii where cameras caught them kayaking and swimming in the ocean. A source says they want to go back to the Aloha state for a Hawaiian-themed wedding complete with leis, Hawaiian shirts, and a luau.
The insider also says there is a “sense of urgency” because Shookus is expecting, and a muumuu dress is a great way to hide a baby bump.
Affleck, 45, shares three children – Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6 – with Jennifer Garner, and Shookus, 38, also has a five-year-old daughter.
In the meantime, Shookus is enjoying her summer in California with Affleck at his new $19.2 million Los Angeles mansion in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood. The property is close to Garner’s home, so Affleck and Shookus can spend time with his kids, and insiders say that everyone is getting along well.
Shookus’ daughter has also been getting to know Affleck, and the couple has made it a priority to incorporate her into their new life together. The producer’s parents have also visited – with cameras spotting Affleck, Shookus, and her parents recently out on a double date – and they are “crazy about” the Good Will Hunting actor, and think he is “smart and charming.”
Affleck has been generous and warm to Shookus’ parents, and everyone has enjoyed going out to restaurants together, as well as enjoying hikes.
But, as far as being considered a “celebrity” or public figure, Shookus says that thought makes her laugh. In a recent interview, she explained that her entire career has been behind the camera because that is where she is most comfortable. She says she is a producer, mom, and friend.
Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus have not commented on the marriage or baby rumors.
