“Ben and Lindsay started their affair about three years ago, just a few months after she became a mom. They were not casually dating — they were having a full-blown affair,” a source close to the couple claimed to Us. “They were sleeping together, sending each other cute texts and meeting up whenever they could.”

The SNL producer was also still married to Kevin Miller at the time.
