Would you want Ben Affleck as your roommate after 7 months?

Well that was quick. After only seven months of dating, sources say Ben Affleck has already moved in with his Saturday Night Live producer girlfriend, Lindsay Shookus.

Well, sort of. Despite reports that the couple was looking at houses together in the Los Angeles area, an insider just told Us Weekly that they "recently" ended up buying an apartment in New York's Upper West Side, where they are "fully living together." Except that Affleck's kids, who he shares with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, keep him firmly tied to LA, so we're not entirely sure how this works. According to the source, whenever Affleck is in New York, "he’ll be living there with Lindsay."

How often he's in New York is the real question now. Affleck seems to be in LA an awful lot, like over Thanksgiving, when he celebrated with Garner, the kids, his mom and his brother, Casey Affleck. Ben Affleck and Garner are co-parenting their three kids, 11-year-old Violet, 8-year-old Seraphina and 5-year-old Samuel, post-divorce, and that arrangement doesn't seem like it'll change anytime soon.

Affleck has also stayed friendly with Garner, and I'd be lying if I said there's no small part of me that's still hoping, just a little, tiny bit, for them to reconcile. Ugh, it's the worst when our favorite celebrity power couples break up.

Still, Affleck and Shookus are clearly happy together, and they seem to be moving things in a more serious direction. What that means for the future of where he'll live — or if he'll just continue splitting time on two opposite sides of the country — remains to be seen.
