Ben Affleck has a new lady friend.
ET confirmed on Monday that the Justice League star and Lindsay Shookus split after a year of dating. The news comes after Affleck has been spotted looking very happy while hanging out with Shauna Sexton, a 22-year-old Playboy model, in the past weeks.
A source close to Sexton told ET that Affleck and Sexton are currently “having fun, it’s light,” noting that the two just recently met. So who is this mystery lady that has Affleck smiling and making Jack in the Box runs? Here are seven things to know about the Virginia Beach native.
1. She is a full-time veterinary technician.
Sexton began in the field at the age of 16. "After my first experience in surgery, I realized working fast-paced and under pressure is for me," she told Playboy.com. "Whatever requires me to move quickly and freely is intriguing. I love surgery more than anything."
2. She was Playboy's Miss May 2018 Playmate.
Before hitting it off with Affleck, Sexton appeared in the pages of the popular magazine as its Miss May main lady.
3. She doesn't call herself a model.
Being a vet tech is a priority for Sexton, who told Playboy in the same interview that she doesn’t "classify" herself as a model. "It's so cliché nowadays for people to say, 'I'm a model.' I need to have some sort of backup plan," she explained. "Modeling is my plan B. If it takes off, I'd be stoked. You're only outwardly pretty for so long."
4. She has a dog named Otis.
Sexton loves to spend time with her "best friend" Lab-Bloodhound mix. The pup frequently makes appearances on her Instagram.
5. She loves to work out.
"If I'm not working, I'm working out," she told Playboy.com, sharing that she gets up at 5 a.m. every day to hit the gym. "I do a lot of high-interval training and incorporate cardio."
6. What she looks for in a guy.
"Humor is important. I need someone who can keep up with my sarcasm or it's just not going to work," Sexton also told the magazine, adding, "I want someone who's able to compromise but doesn't sell himself short. I appreciate people who are the truest forms of themselves and brutally honest about who they are."
7. She likes dark liquor.
Her go-to drink is "whiskey all day," Sexton shared. "Bourbon, for sure."
