Ben Affleck is already engaged to Ana de Armas but they are keeping it a secret because Jennifer Garner would be upset.
The 47-year-old actor was said to have proposed to his girlfriend by giving her a sparkling ruby engagement ring.
“Ben was originally planning to propose to Ana on her birthday, on April 30,” the source who is allegedly a friend of the couple told Star magazine. “But he was too excited to hold out, so he got down on one knee during a romantic dinner at his place and of course she said yes!”

The tipster further claimed that Jennifer Garner’s ex-husband picked a ring with a price tag of $200,000 and this is just temporary.
The ring is just something that De Armas could wear until they can go out and shop for a bigger stone after the lockdown.
The paper also quoted a jewelry expert to make sure that what The Informer is wearing is an engagement ring and increase the credibility of the report.
It was said that the ruby ring is definitely for the engagement because the stone represents love and passion. The expert added that this type of stone is very “fitting” for betrothal so there is no other explanation for it.
Debunking the engagement claims
At any rate, the source added that Ben Affleck is keeping his engagement to Ana a secret because he is certain that Jennifer Garner will not like the idea.
He believes that his ex-wife and Peppermint actress will go haywire and probably be so upset because he is “thinking with his heart and not his head.”
Gossip Cop set out to investigate and found many loopholes in the report. It pointed out that the article did not mention when exactly the supposed proposal took place.
This is obviously a vital detail that should have been included in the report yet Star failed to supply this piece of information. It is true that de Armas has a ruby ring with diamonds and was photographed wearing it many times.
However, the actress was already seen with this jewelry as early as February and Gossip Cop stated there is no way the couple could have been engaged that early into their relationship.
The fact-checking site concluded that Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas’ engagement report is totally false. This means that Jennifer Garner has no reason to go berserk either.
