Back in April, I prayed to god that we might live long enough to witness Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas participate in “The Blended Family Big Top Corona Quarantine Pap Parade featuring three kids, three dogs, a cat in a stroller and a hamburger flipping robot.” Well, less than two months later, it actually happened, albeit without cat or robot (tell me how it is that Jennifer Garner’s boyfriend is never seen, yet, in addition to knowing Ben’s Dunkin’ Donuts order by heart, I’m pretty sure I could confidently walk into any Victoria’s Secret and pick out a bra and panty set for Ana knowing it would fit and the color would match her eyes?). Does time somehow move slower in Quronatine (™) for everyone else, or are BenAna going toe to toe (X 3 X 10) with Britney Spears and Usain Bolt for the 100-meter dash? Because according to The Daily Mail, BenAna’s already looking at property together.
The DM reports:
They have been inseparable since going into lockdown together at the start of the pandemic.
But Ben Affleck, 47, and Ana de Armas, 32, may be taking their relationship to the next level.
The couple were seen checking out a property together in Venice, California on Wednesday.
While it’s not entirely clear if the couple for looking for a home for themselves, the pair’s relationship has been moving rather quickly these last few months.
Ana and Ben were seen at the site of an unfinished property in the oceanside community, wearing their trusty face masks as they toured the home.
The actress was seen checking out the view from the balcony, while her quarantine partner was spotted at ground level.

“Peek-a-Boo, Rodrigo!” You guys are so cute! Get a room. Or seven!
According to the property’s listing, there’s plenty of room for Rodrigo to have his own room. The still unfinished (“completion 7.2020”) 3 story “3,500 sqft beach house” and “2,100 sqft guest house” is listed for $9,750,000. It features “a sunken living room, 2 indoor/1 outdoor kitchen, service area in the master with additional sink & dishwasher, wine refrigerator. 7 bedrooms, 5 baths, 2 powders,” and a “1,000 sqft master suite with two decks, free-standing tub & 55 sqft marble shower,” for, you know, “the most discerning buyer.” Only the best for our BenAna!

You know, while I did successfully predict these two were going to take this circus to a whole other lever, two months ago I could not have ever guessed that BenAna’s thirst Olympics was going to be the only thing to bring me joy come summer. Yet here we are. A debt of gratitude is owed to these two pioneers. Huzzah!
