Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas didn’t immediately get the actor’s mom’s seal of approval when they first started dating.
According to In Touch Weekly, Christine Anne Boldt had some concerns about Ben Affleck and de Armas’ relationship.
Initially, the actor’s mom didn’t know what de Armas’ true intentions were. And Boldt was also, allegedly, concerned about the couple’s age difference.
Ben Affleck’s mom allegedly adores Ana de Armas
But shortly after Affleck introduced his mom to his girlfriend, Boldt’s perception of de Armas changed. Boldt also, allegedly, started seeing why her son fell in love with the actress in the first place.
Boldt also, allegedly, thinks that de Armas is a positive influence on Affleck. And the doting mom is thrilled to see his son happy and in a good place.
“Seeing Ben happy makes Christine happy. He and Ana flew to the East Coast with [his] kids Violet and Samuel (Seraphina stayed with Jen), and they spent four days together as a family,” the source said.
Ben Affleck introduced his girlfriend to his ex-wife, children first
Affleck first introduced de Armas to his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, and their three children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel.
The source said that the Batman v Superman star needed to get a green light from his ex-wife first before he could introduce de Armas to their kids. The exes waited until the timing was right and everything just fell into place.
Does Jennifer Garner approve Ben Affleck, Ana’s plan to wed?
According to the source, Ben Affleck has no intention to replace Garner because the actress is the best mom in the world. But there is also no denying the fact that the actor’s relationship with de Armas is becoming more and more serious.
Just recently, there are claims that Affleck is thinking about proposing to de Armas. And the couple has, allegedly, been talking about having kids.
According to Woman’s Day, Affleck doesn’t want to waste any more time before he proposes to de Armas. After all, Garner already gave them her blessing to tie the knot.
“They both love to travel and will want to lock it all down before the film sets to open up again, as her schedule will be very tight. It wouldn’t surprise me if next time they sneak off, it’s to say ‘I do,’” the source said, as per Woman’s Day.
However, one should take the claims made by the tabloids with a grain of salt. It is unclear what Boldt really thinks of de Armas. And it is unlikely for Ben Affleck to already be thinking about marriage again. After all, his three young children are still his top priority.
