Ben Affleck stepped out with his new girlfriend Lindsay Shookus and both of them were all smiles

The new couple couldn’t contain their smiles while heading out of Beech Street Cafe on Monday night in Pacific Palisades. Ben and Lindsay both kept a casual style wearing just tees and jeans. While inside the restaurant, the couple were spotted sharing a table and chatting while enjoying some pizza. Earlier that day, Ben and Lindsay were seen while out on a coffee date. They’ve reportedly been spending lots of time together at Ben‘s home while Lindsay is on hiatus from SNL.

The 44-year-old actor and 37-year-old Saturday Night Live producer have reportedly known each other for years, and began an alleged affair in 2013.

Lindsay was previously married to SNL colleague Kevin Miller and they share a child together. She grew up in Buffalo, N.Y., and went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for journalism. She won an Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special in 2015 for producing the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special. She was also nominated in 2016 for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series and for Outstanding Variety Special for producing the Adele Live in New York City concert special.
