Apparently, Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus have been seriously dating, but this does not mean that she will be meeting his three children in the near future. A new report has claimed that Ben will not introduce her to the children, unless his former wife, Jennifer Garner agrees with this.
The new report indicated that Ben is ready to have his children meet his girlfriend Lindsay, but he is waiting for the kids’ mom, Jennifer, to approve of this. Apparently, Ben does not want to start a fight with his former wife, so he wants to wait until Jennifer will be fine with this.
“Ben and Lindsay are practically attached at the hip right now, which is hard to do considering they live on opposite coasts,” an insider claimed according to Hollywood Life. “They’ve both been logging frequent flyer miles like crazy, they hate being apart. Ben is so ready to introduce her to the kids but he’s waiting for Jennifer to give the approval,” the same source went on to explain.
The insider claimed that although Ben is dating and has a new life now, he is still a very dedicated father and wants what is best for the children. He “is still very committed to co-parenting” and is very “respectful” of his ex-wife. “Ben is all about keeping his life as drama free as he can,” the source said.
The fact that things are so serious between Lindsay and Ben is quite surprising, considering that the two recently started dating. However, the new romance is not free of scandals, as it has previously been claimed that Ben and Lindsay had an affair while the actor was still married to Jennifer. At that time, back in 2013, Lindsay was also still married. One report claimed that Jennifer knew about the romance and at one point she actually asked Lindsay to leave her husband alone, which she allegedly refused to do.
Whether Jennifer knew about this alleged romance or not has not been officially confirmed. In fact, none of the stars involved in this scandal have made any official statements.
