Ben Affleck and his Cuban girlfriend met while filming for the movie 'Deep Water', which is set to release in 2020.
Not everyone gets lucky with finding a great partner after getting out of a serious relationship. And especially when your previous partner was an amazing one, you can't help but compare. However, everyone is different, and finding true love is a lot about the right timing.
Actor Ben Affleck's bond with actress Ana De Armas, his girlfriend, is getting stronger even though they met only six months ago. The Argo actor and the Bond girl met when they filmed Deep Water in 2019 and have been together ever since. And, what makes them a good pair is the effect she has on him. She's reportedly a catalyst for their good relationship.
"They are enjoying their time together. He makes her laugh and she’s a great influence. They safely visit with his family and he works to make sure he is healthy and present for his family. His priority will always be his children and making that work," a source said, according to PEOPLE.
The couple makes time to spend with his kids with Jennifer Garner. During the Memorial Day weekend, Affleck, 47, and de Armas, 32, spent the night with his three kids — Violet, 14, Seraphina, 11, and Samuel, 8 — at his home. Another source had said that the Good Will Hunting actor is "very serious" about de Armas.
"He wants the kids to spend time with her so they can get to know her," the source added. And most people introduce their new partner to their children only when they are quite sure about the person. They spent more time together when they went on a stroll with his children and dogs in May. The five of them have also hung out at his LA home together.

The Cuban actress has reportedly been spending time with him at his home in Los Angeles a lot more amid the recently-lifted lockdown, as per Mirror UK. They are also able to spend extra time together as filming is shut at the moment. It's giving them time to strengthen their bond.
In March, the couple had flown to Havanna, Cuba, where they strolled on the beach barefoot together and looked like they were enjoying their romantic time together.
"Ana was his tour guide and took him to all her favorite places. Ben seemed to love the trip, he was in a great mood and very friendly. He was approached by fans multiple times and happily posed for pictures. They visited several restaurants and enjoyed Cuban cuisine," a source told PEOPLE.

They also said that de Armas "is great and very pleasant to be around. She always greets people with a smile and you never hear a complaint. She has this very calm and sweet personality." It still hadn't been confirmed if they were dating back then.
Affleck and de Armas were seen spending time together in Louisiana city in January several times after wrapping up filming on upcoming thriller Deep Water, which was shot on location in New Orleans. One person who saw the couple tweeted about it too. "Ben Affleck right behind me spitting game to Ana de Armas in Spanish all night long is a vibe," the tweet said.

Affleck has previously romanced his co-stars too. Jennifer Garner and he met on the set of Daredevil. They got married in 2005 and went on to have three kids before divorcing 13 years later in 2018. They continue to have friendly relations as they co-parent their kids. He recently spoke about how amazing she is as a mother to their kids. He revealed in front of Good Morning America's Diane Sawyer a note that he had written to Garner.
"What I want to say publicly and privately is, 'Thank you. Thank you for being thoughtful, considerate, responsible, and a great mom and person,'" Sawyer read out aloud, according to Mirror UK.
The actor has also dated Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez previously. His current girlfriend is also divorced. She was previously married to Spanish actor Marc Clotet from 2011 to 2013.
