Regardless of what's actually going on in their relationship, Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus' romance is moving at breakneck speed in the pages of the world's most salacious tabloids.
It was just last week that we learned Affleck and Shookus are dating, and already, rumors about flying about the couple taking major steps forward together.
Of course, it's been widely reported that Affleck and Shookus dated in secret for several years, but that's a topic for another time.
The big Shookfleck news of today comes from an Australian tabloid called Woman's Day, and should thus be taken with several grains of salt.
The magazine claims that Shookus is pregnant and Ben's ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, is "devastated by the news."
An insider explains to the outlet that Ben and Lindsay decided to stop being secretive about their relationship after learning they're expecting.
The source says Ben recently broke the news to Jennifer, who was understandably less than thrilled:
“Ben told her they’d just had their first doctor’s appointment," claims the tipster.
Now, in all likelihood, this is a load of bull, but a Batfleck baby would explain a lot.
The normally secretive and downcast-looking Affleck has been out and about with Lindsay in plain view of the paparazzi in recent weeks, and what's truly amazing is that he's often smiling.
Of course, the most likely explanation is that he's simply happy to have found love again after one of the most high-profile celebrity splits in recent memory.
Affleck and Garner separated back in 2015, but only finalized their divorce earlier this year.
There were rumors that they were trying to sort things out, and the actors were even spotted attending church and couples counseling together.
It was a dark time for both, no doubt, but after two years of darkness, it seems they're both finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.
Affleck is newly sober after completing a stint in rehab, and friends say they haven't seen him this happy in years.
Both he and Shookus are already parents, but if the relationship is progressing as rapidly as some claim, we wouldn't be surprised if there's a baby in their future.
We just doubt it's in their immediate future.
