What’s that you hear? That, my friends, is the relieved exhale of the sidewalks of L.A. whose burden has at last been lifted after carrying the weight of Ben Affleck, Ana de Armas, the dogs and a rag-tag crew of exhausted paparazzi, lo these many weeks. BenAna has decamped to the desert and gone Instagram Official, taking their thirst into their own hands. According to People, Ana celebrated her 32nd birthday with Ben, her second favorite photographer (Rodrigo will always be her #1), on a remote romantic retreat.
Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas are Instagram official!
The couple didn’t shy away from showing their affection on social media as de Armas celebrated her 32nd birthday with the actor on a desert getaway.
The actress shared a series of photos on her Instagram page depicting her celebrating alongside Affleck, 47. The two smile at the camera as they hug each other, while in another photo, the two embrace as they stare at a sunset.
Damn, you know you’re working hard when even People Magazine sounds like they’re tired of your shit. Apparently, to absolutely no one’s surprise, Ana is a “birthday girl“, and no expense was spared in the celebration. Ana had a novelty tiara ($1.99), way too many helium balloons ($60), Happy Birthday bunting ($2.99), a piñata ($30), caviar (how the hell should I know?), fancy chocolate cake with gold candles ($45), and Priyanka Chopra commenting “Happy birthday love” on her and Ben’s official coming out post signaling that she’s finally reached Elite Status (priceless). Here’s her post.
I love how Ben’s back is coyly turned away from the camera in that sunset shot. #FREETHEFIRECHICKEN! Here’s Ana going to town on her birthday piñata. I see Ben’s ineptitude with face coverings has followed him to the desert. It’s supposed to cover your nose and mouth Ana, not your eyes!
And with BenAna’s desert sojourn, the cracks in sidewalks of L.A. are beginning to heal themselves. The cones are returning. The cement is rejuvenating itself. We are the virus.
