Ben Affleck, 47, sports much darker beard as steps out with girlfriend Ana de Armas, 32

ACTOR Ben Affleck, 47, displayed his much darker beard as he stepped out with girlfriend Ana de Armas, 32, in California yesterday.

The Hollywood star was recently pictured sporting a gray-hued beard and now showed off darker facial hair as he enjoyed a stroll around his Pacific Palisades neighborhood.

The couple, who were first linked in March, looked smitten as they walked hand-in-hand alongside their dogs.

Looking chic for her walk, Ana donned a white sundress by Zimmerman with a pair of sneakers and pink-lens shades.

Offsetting Ana's stylish appearance, Ben opted for a pair of baggy grey joggers, gray T-shirt and hoodie while holding onto his iced coffee.

The pair looked incredibly cosy during the outing as Ben wrapped his arm around Ana's waist and notably they went without face masks, despite Los Angeles requiring coverings anytime in public amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The couple's latest appearance comes after his ex Jennifer Garner appeared emotional and in need of some girl talk on Sunday, days after Ben introduced their three children to Ana.

Ben and much-younger girlfriend Ana spent time with his three children – Violet, 14, Seraphina, 11, and eight-year-old Samuel – over the Memorial Day weekend.

But the same weekend, Jennifer met up with a friend where they went for a coffee run around the Pacific Palisades neighborhood.

The Alias actress seemed upset and was pictured covering her face in a sweater several times, turning away from her friend.

Until now, Ben had dropped in solo to visit his kids with Jennifer from whom he split in 2015.

As Ben and Ana moved forward in their relationship his children were off-limits and it was recently reported that Jennifer had banned Ben from introducing their children to his new girlfriend.

A source told Us Magazine: “Ben is understanding.

“[He] said he would work with Jennifer to prepare the kids for meeting [Ana].”

However, it seemed Ben decided it was time for introductions, and Ana, Ben and the kids all sported face masks as per Californian law to prevent the further spread of coronavirus.

They had with them his ex-wife's Jennifer's dog, Birdie whom Violet was walking and Ana was in charge of her pooch, Elvis.

The couple who are in lockdown together have been regularly spotted getting smoochy around Los Angeles, and a smitten Ben was spotted whisking the Knives Out star away for a romantic desert dinner to celebrate her birthday this month.

Ben and Ana were first linked in early March after they were both spotted visiting the actress' native Cuba.

A fan spotted Ben and Ana enjoying themselves in a small town in Havana.

Ben's apparently a fluent Spanish speaker and fans snapped pics of the two enjoying a little town in Havana.

They met this past November when they were shooting Deep Water in New Orleans.

Last year Ben was seeing Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookas while ex Jen has been dating businessman John Miller since 2018.
