The two met after co-starring in the thriller "Deep Water," in which they play a married couple. The movie wrapped production in New Orleans in February. As their relationship continues to progress, the source has also suggested that Affleck is doing well in his personal life.

"Ben is in one of the best places he’s been in a long time,” the source said. The star has been battling alcoholism for years, and completed his most recent stint in rehab in October of 2018.

Since then, the actor seems to be largely focused on his career. "The Way Back," in which Affleck plays an alcoholic basketball coach, was released on March 6, just before many movie theaters closed down in response to the coronavirus.

Speaking of the virus, the source also suggested that de Armas and Affleck have tried to stay close amid California's stay-at-home order. The two were even spotted sharing a kiss as they took a walk on March 24 after leaving Ben's house.

The couple first sparked romance rumors following a trip they took to Havana together in early March. Following their trip to Cuba, the couple were also spotted taking a romantic stroll along the beach in Costa Rica, making it clear that they were romantically involved with one another.

The confirmation of their romance comes after Affleck did a round of press interviews in which he discussed some of his biggest regrets. Many of those regrets had to do with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner.

Garner and Affleck were married from 2005 to 2018, and Affleck told The New York Times that his divorce from her was one of his life's biggest regrets.

“What happened was that I started drinking more and more when my marriage was falling apart. This was 2015, 2016. My drinking, of course, created more marital problems," Affleck said in the interview.

It seems that now, the actor is in recovery and in a healthy relationship that can hopefully last for some time.
