Though they just made their pairing public, Ben Affleck and girlfriend Lindsay Shookus didn’t seem to have a care in the world while spotted out in LA Monday.
Both lovebirds were grinning ear-to-ear as they ventured out to for a romantic Italian dinner together.
It’s possible the pair were celebrating their new digs, as People reports that the SNL producer is now ‘staying at Ben’s new house.’
Lindsay, 37, looked simple and stylish donning ripped skinny jeans and a sleeveless tank with lace trim to the eatery.
She sported several luxe bangles and carried a light denim jacket in her arms while Ben, 44, looked casual yet polished in a grey shirt and slim jeans.
The Academy Award winner still sported salt and pepper stubble on his face, but looked significantly slimmer – and happier – than he appeared in months past.
While inside the restaurant the couple appeared utterly besotted, barely able to take their eyes of each other as they nibbled on their Italian fare.
And they were all smiles upon exit, with Ben carrying a bag of leftovers as both sipped on some to-go drinks.
News of Ben and Lindsay’s relationship became public last week
‘They are spending time together in LA Lindsay is staying at Ben’s new house,’ a source told People.
‘They had dinner at Giorgio Baldi on Thursday. They arrived in a limo. They looked happy. They had a quick dinner and then returned to Ben’s house,’ the source added.
The insider told Us that Ben and Lindsay ‘were not casually dating’ but have been ‘having a full-blown affair’ since 2015.
‘They were sleeping together, sending each other cute texts and meeting up whenever they could,’ claimed the insider.
However, a source close to Ben claimed they pair have only been dating for three months and tried to make it clear that ‘Lindsay was not what led to the end of [Affleck and Garner’s] marriage,’ adding ‘They had a ton of other problems.’
Lindsay was previously married to Kevin Miller, a former SNL producer; they have one child together.
