Ben Affleck is still in rehab for alcohol and substance abuse, but insiders say he is already planning for his future with veterinary technician turned Playboy model Shauna Sexton. Could wedding bells be ringing for the 46-year-old Gone Girl actor and his 22-year-old girlfriend?
“He’s totally in love with Shauna and wants them to live together the moment he’s home, then he’ll make it official with a proposal,” claims an insider.
Things have gotten serious pretty fast between Affleck and Sexton. She even promised to give up alcohol to support the Justice League star’s sobriety. She has also been visiting him at the Canyon rehab facility in Malibu where he has been in treatment since August, despite his medical team’s objections.

Doctors have advised him to hold off on a relationship, but Affleck isn’t listening. And, his closest friends have been hoping Sexton was just a fling, and they would break it off when he went to treatment. But, they are getting closer every day. An insider says that the more time Affleck spends with Sexton, the more he wants to go home.
The insider adds that Affleck is insisting he has gotten his sobriety under control, and he is ready to check out. But, he is doing it in phases, starting with day releases.
Affleck and Sexton started dating just days before his ex-wife Jennifer Garner took him to rehab. He had fallen off the wagon after he split from his girlfriend of one year, Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus.
But, it didn’t take Affleck long to move on and set is heart on Sexton, and Radar Online is reporting that he is ready to take things to the next level. Their insider says that Affleck and Sexton have talked about marriage extensively, and she is “on board with it.” For Sexton, dating Affleck is a fairytale, and she is in it for the long term.

While Affleck remains in rehab, Sexton has been spending time with friends. Cameras recently caught the model having dinner at Avra in Beverly Hills, where she wore a slinky black dress with a high-neckline and spaghetti straps. She fixed her blonde hair in a high ponytail and accessorized the look with gold hoop earrings with faces and a simple chain.
Sexton finished the look with strappy sandals that had a chunky heel.
Cameras first spotted Ben Affleck and Shauna Sexton together at Nobu Malibu in mid-August, and since he has been in rehab, she has been driving his vehicle. They also meet up when he goes home on his day releases to workout in his private gym.
