Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas split up over whether to have a family together, sources exclusively tell Page Six. But pals think there’s a chance for a Hollywood ending, and the lovebirds will reconcile.
Page Six confirmed the split on Monday, with a source telling us the pair — who were together for almost a year — were in “different places” in their lives. Another source has further elaborated that the breakup came down to children. “He would not commit to having more kids,” said the insider. “She is in her 30s. It was a deal-breaker.”
Affleck, 48, has three children — Violet, 14, Seraphina, 11, and 8-year-old Samuel — with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. De Armas, 32, does not have children.
Another source close to the couple explains, “Ben is not in a place to start a new family. Both he and Ana have three jobs lined up. His family has, and will continue, to be his focus.”
While we’re told the decision to split was mutual, pals think that the pair may not be done for good. “They could get back together,” said a source. “They are in love. People who know them believe it’s temporary.”
The pair first met on the set of their thriller, “Deep Water,” and as Page Six reported, they were then seen enjoying a romantic trip to Havana last March. They’ve since been seen in paparazzi pics on dog walks and sipping coffees in LA.
But after quarantining together, she took a trip home to visit family, which sparked buzz the relationship was on the rocks.
The Post reported on Monday that de Armas has been seeking rental homes in West Hollywood in the wake of the split after she’d moved into Affleck’s $20 million mansion and put her Venice, Calif., home on the market last month.
Reps did not immediately comment.
