object animation sart/stop position based on variable width

I'm building some lower third templates with editable text for use in Premiere, using the Essential Graphics panel.

The width of the container box changes size depending on the length of the text. The text also animates in from the left from behind a mask. Is there a way to set the start/stop positions of the text items based on their width? If the text is too long, it appears halfway visible from behind the mask at the beginning of the animation.

Thanks!

Hey AK, screenshot or sample .aep would help to guide you better, with less guessing.

Apart from that, few pin points:
1. Does text need to be the same size, or downscaling is preferred?
2. Do you prefer mask to increase the size as the length of text increases?
3. Have you applied any expressions to anchor point by now, or position?
