Ben Affleck to Lindsay Shookus: Let's Have a Baby!

by at .

It's only been two weeks since we first learned that Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus are dating.

But depending on who you believe, the couple may have been together much longer than that.

In fact, some say Affleck and Shookus have been together for years, dating back to when they were both married to other people.

That may just be the tabloid media doing what it does and making up a salacious angle for a tame story.

Or maybe Affleck and Shookus really did leave their spouses for one another.

We may never know for sure, but whatever the case, this is clearly more than a rebound fling.

Sources close to the couple say Ben and Lindsay are both in it for the long haul.

Affleck reportedly has yet to pop the question, but it seems he and Lindsay are very much planning a future together.

One insider has even gone so far as to claim Ben and Lindsay are planning to start a family together.

Despite rumors to the contrary, Shookus is not yet pregnant, but there could be another Batfleck on the way very soon.

“They’re actively talking about having a baby,” a source close to Ben tells In Touch.

“They’re ready to start a family.”

The same insider says the couple's only concern is how Ben's ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, will react to the news.

“This is going to be her biggest nightmare,” says the source.

The problem it seems, isn't that Garner begruges Affleck his happiness, but that she's worried about how her children will react to seeing their newly-single dad with a pregnant girlfriend/

The tipster says Shookus' pregnancy is sure to cause “a lot of drama" within Ben's family.

Affleck and Garner finalized their divorce less than three months ago, so it's safe to assume those close to Ben didn't expect him to move on this quickly.

That said, the couple separated in 2015, so it's not really all that surprising that Ben has moved on to another serious relationship.

Sources close to Garner say she wasn't surprised that Ben is dating someone new, as he's never been single for very long.

Tellingly, the actress has kept mum on the question of whether or not Ben's new relationship overlapped with his marriage.
