“Ben really wants to introduce his girlfriend Lindsay Shookus to his kids, but Jen has put her foot down,” a source told In Touch. According to the insider, the actress thinks it’s too early to have their kids meet the Saturday Night Live producer. “It’s taken the whole family a long time to adjust to the divorce. Bringing Lindsay into the picture could be very jarring,” added the insider.

“They are both extremely dedicated to making this a seamless transition for the kids,” said a Ben insider, who also claimed that while Ben understands Jen’s point, he knows Lindsay isn’t going anywhere.
