BEN Affleck is said to be “upset” about his split from girlfriend Ana de Armas and “really wanted the relationship to work”.
Following the news the couple have called it quits, a source close to the Batman actor has revealed he’s taken the decision hard.
Ben, 48, is reportedly upset about the end of his relationship with his actress girlfriend, Ana, 32, after almost a year of dating.
Speaking to PEOPLE, a source close to Affleck revealed the actor had been invested in the success of their relationship.
“[Ben] has been upset about the split," the insider told the publication but went on to say that he "is committed to focus on the happy things in his life."
They added: "Ben really wanted their relationship to work.
"Ana has a great energy. Ben was always very happy when Ana was around. She likes to stay healthy and inspired Ben to keep staying healthy too."
Calling the relationship “very complicated” the source added: "Ana is young and adventurous. When she is not working, she wants to travel. She doesn't want to settle down in Los Angeles. Ben needs to live in L.A. since his kids do."
Another source close to the couple said they had been arguing over whether or not to start a family together.
Page Six reported: “He would not commit to having more kids.
"She [Ana] is in her 30s. It was a deal-breaker.”
Other sources shared: “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.”
Ben and his ex, Jennifer Garner share daughters Violet, 14, and Seraphina, 11, and eight-year-old son, Samuel.
Those who know the former couple reportedly believe the two will eventually reconcile, according to Page Six.
A source said: “They could get back together.
“They are in love. People who know them believe it’s temporary.”
There had been rumors the couple was drifting apart, but a source told PEOPLE on Monday they parted ways.
The source revealed: "Ben is no longer dating Ana.
"She broke it off. Their relationship was complicated. Ana doesn't want to be Los Angeles based and Ben obviously has to since his kids live in Los Angeles."
A second source added: "This is something that was mutual and something that is completely amicable.
