Ben Affleck appears to have taken his romance with Ana de Armas to the next level, after introducing her to his children.
The couple were spotted earlier this week taking a walk together with Ben’s children – Violet, Seraphina and Samuel – from his marriage to actress Jennifer Garner, with everybody donning masks as they went for a walk with their dogs around Brentwood.
Ben and Ana have made no secret of their relationship of late, having gone Instagram official earlier this month – but just who is Ana, and how did the pair of them meet?
Here’s what you need to know…
Who is Ben Affleck’s new girlfriend Ana de Armas?
Ana is a Cuban-Spanish actress who was born in Havana, Cuba, on 30 April 1988 – meaning she’s just celebrated her 32nd birthday.
She launched her acting career in Spanish movies after moving to Madrid when she was 18, before heading for Los Angeles in 2014 in a bid to crack Hollywood.
Her breakthrough role came in Blade Runner 2049 in 2017, in which she played AI projection Joi, the holographic girlfriend of Ryan Gosling’s character – while she also landed herself a Golden Globe nomination for her role in 2019’s Knives Out as immigrant nurse Marta Cabrera.

Ana will be seen later this year in the new James Bond movie No Time To Die – which was originally set for release in April but has been postponed to November in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
She has several other films lined up for release in 2020, including Deep Water, Sergio and The Night Clerk.
How did she and Ben Affleck meet?
Ana and Ben met while they were filming the movie Deep Water – based on the Patricia Highsmith novel – in which they play a husband and wife whose mind games turn deadly.

‘Although it’s sad in a way to see him move on and be so happy, she is ultimately happy that he is happy and in a good and healthy place with his life,’ an insider claimed.
‘That’s what she ultimately wants for the father of his kids.’
