Despite rumors that he was dating actress Sienna Miller, Ben Affleck appears to be moving on from his relationship with Jennifer Garner with Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus.

According to Us Weekly (opens in new tab), Affleck and Shookus spent four days together in London in early July, and were seen together in Los Angeles on July 6. "They were together on the set of Justice League in London where Ben was filming reshoots," a source says, adding that Affleck is "very happy" and "very much enjoying spending time with Lindsay."

Meanwhile, E! (opens in new tab) reports that the pair are "in the early stages" of their relationship, but that "It's more than a summer fling. They are having fun and care for each other. It's early and they are taking it slow."

Affleck and Garner split in 2015 after ten years of marriage, and have remained close friends ever since—even spending July 4th together. "The main thing is these kids—and we're completely in line with what we hope for them," Garner said during an interview (opens in new tab) in 2016. "Sure, I lost the dream of dancing with my husband at my daughter's wedding. But you should see their faces when he walks through the door. And if you see your kids love someone so purely and wholly, then you're going to be friends with that person."

FYI, the former couple have been more private about their post-marriage relationship recently, with the exception of the above Facebook post from Garner regarding speculation about her personal life.
