Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus aren’t talking about having a baby together, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this fake news.

Reports emerged last week that the actor and “Saturday Night Live” producer started dating following his divorce filing from Jennifer Garner earlier this year, and now a supposed “source” tells In Touch the couple is “ready to start a family.” The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to claim Affleck’s friends “think he’s completely out of touch with reality” and have been trying to convince him that having a child with the producer “isn’t a good move.”

According to the repeatedly discredited magazine, however, no one is more furious about this supposed baby news than Garner. “This is going to be her biggest nightmare,” says the tabloid’s questionable source. “Seeing him around with his pregnant girlfriend with their children is going to cause a lot of drama.” The “insider” further contends Garner is now plotting to “take Ben to the cleaners” as “payback.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a mutual pal of ours and Affleck, who exclusively assures us the actor isn’t discussing having a baby with Shookus, and the magazine’s claim otherwise is simply “false.” Additionally, Gossip Cop has repeatedly called out In Touch for flip-flopping on the status of Affleck and Garner’s relationship.

Earlier this year, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for wrongly reporting Affleck and Garner were calling off their divorce and having a fourth child together. Shortly after that fabrication, we corrected the outlet’s sister publication, Life & Style, after it falsely claimed Affleck and Garner were renewing their vows. The magazine has dropped its reunion narrative now that the actor is clearly with another woman, but this latest article is no more accurate.
