Cape Town - Ben Affleck is well on his way to recovery.

In October last year, the actor-director revealed he’d spent 40 days in a rehab centre to treat his alcohol addiction, E Online reports.

Ben’s ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, reportedly took it upon herself to take him to the treatment facility.

"He was grateful that Jen was there for him again and didn’t fight it," an insider told the celebrity site.

Now, five months later, the Golden Globe winner is doing much better.

“Ben is doing great,” a close source said to People. “Of course life has its challenges. He focuses on the kids and making sure he’s present.”

During an interview earlier in the year, Ben revealed he and the Peppermint actress are trying their best to co-parent their three children, Violet (13), Seraphina (10) and Samuel (7).

“I hope I’m a pretty good dad,” Ben said.

“I certainly try very hard. I’m lucky they got a great mom, and she helps out a great deal with making sure we co-parent in as good a way as possible.”

Reports have recently surfaced that the Justice League actor has rekindled his romance with SNL producer Lindsay Shookus, Elite Daily reports.

“He and Lindsay are spending time together,” the source says.

“He loves to be with her. They still are both focusing on their families.”
