A family affair! Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were all smiles while leaving church with their kids on Sunday, April 28. It’s refreshing to see the former flames coparenting and getting along since they finalized their divorce in November 2018. Scroll through the gallery below to see their outing.
Ben, 46, and Jen, 47, reunited to bring their kids to church. Afterward, the duo was talking with each other and some friends while the brunette beauty was drinking out of a white cup. The loving parents seemed to be getting along.
Hmm … what do you think they are talking about? The Hollywood A-listers looked cute and casual — the handsome hunk wore a blue leather jacket with a blue sweater and gray pants while Jen wore a black sweater with a skirt.
The Triple Frontier actor was recently spotted spending quality time with his daughter Violet on April 14. “I hope I’m a pretty good dad,” he said on the Today show on March 4. “I certainly try very hard. Dads are so important to kids, and it’s our responsibility to be there for them, to be present, to be mindful, to be attentive, to be part of their lives, to be as in it as moms.”
Of course, Ben can’t get all of the credit. “I’m lucky they got a great mom, and she helps out a great deal with making sure we coparent in as good a way as possible,” he added of his ex. After 11 years together, Jen and Ben announced they were getting divorced in June 2015. They share three kids — Violet, 13, Seraphina, 10, and Samuel, 7.
Meanwhile, Ben is single and ready to mingle. After reuniting with his ex Lindsay Shookus for a second time, they decided they couldn’t make it work. “After having a lengthy discussion about where their relationship was going, they both agreed that it was unrealistic to take things to the next level because of family commitments and living arrangements,” an insider told In Touch.
“Lindsay doesn’t want to disrupt [her] daughter Madeline’s life by moving her from New York to L.A., and Ben can’t move his kids to New York, so they decided to call it quits,” the source added. “It was all very emotional!”
On the other hand, even though the hot mama hasn’t been seen out with her beau, John Miller, in a while, they are still very happy together. “He’s the man of her dreams — stable, intelligent, successful, funny and he treats her like a princess,” an insider told Life & Style about their relationship.
After a difficult 2018, the Good Will Hunting alum realized that he needed to make a change. While promoting one of his films, Ben addressed his struggle with alcoholism. “It doesn’t really bother me to talk about alcoholism and being alcoholic,” he said in an interview. “It’s part of my life, it’s something that I deal with. It doesn’t have to subsume my whole identity and be everything, but it’s something you have to work at.”
