Affleck and Cowan have been dating for over two years. Affleck made their romance Instagram official back in Nov. 2021, and the pair publicly celebrated one year of knowing each other with dueling social media posts in Jan. 2022.

"On our first date, you carried firewood up, built a fire, and gave me a low eyelid look that was so strong I had to take a knee for a minute," Affleck wrote in the caption for the post, which showed a photo of the pair learning to bake bread together at a bakery in Budapest. "Tonight, to celebrate knowing each other for a year, we went down to the local bakery here in Budapessshtt and cooked twelve loaves of bread. All I could smell was you."

Cowan echoed her beau's sentiments on her own post, which featured two photos of the couple, at the time. Alongside them, she wrote, "Caleb Casey Affleck, you are the other half of my heart. You are such a wonderful and loving boyfriend. You are a genius who beats everyone at chess (except your youngest son). You are genuine. You say what you mean and mean what you say. You are generous with your time. You are gracious and forgive yourself and others. You are the greatest gift."

Affleck was previously linked to Supergirl alum Floriana Lima. The duo began dating in 2016 and never publicly announced their breakup.

He shares two sons — Indiana, 17, and Atticus, 14 — with ex-wife Summer Phoenix, whom he was married to from 2006 to 2017.

The Gone Baby Gone actor is set to appear in Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer in July.
