Ben Affleck may no longer be married to Jennifer Garner, but he feels luckier than ever to have the actress as the mother of his three kids. Since the former Hollywood couple called it quits in 2015, they continue to be model coparents of their beloved children, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel. In fact, the Batman star’s cutest quotes about Jen are proof of it.
Ben and the 13 Going on 30 star’s love story began when they tied the knot in 2005. The pair started their family when they welcomed their eldest daughter, Violet, in 2005, followed by their second daughter, Seraphina, in 2009. Jen and Ben completed their brood when their youngest son, Samuel, arrived in 2012.
Although fans thought the two were a match made in heaven, the ex-lovebirds split in June 2015 following 10 years of marriage. However, it turns out that they’re more perfect when it comes to coparenting their kids as they’ve put their differences aside for the sake of Violet, Seraphina and Samuel.
“The kids are their No. 1 priority, and they’re both amazing, hands-on parents,” an insider exclusively told Closer Weekly in February. “They’re getting a lot better these days and are in a great place, which makes coparenting so much easier. They even go to each other’s houses and catch up over coffee.”
Even though the A-listers have moved on in their romantic lives — Jen has been linked to boyfriend John Miller since 2018, while Ben began dating Ana De Armas in early 2020 — their roles as coparents will always be important. Aside from grabbing coffee together, Ben and Jen have also been spotted countless times at church and on other outings with their kiddos.
It seems the Good Will Hunting alum and the Alias actress are doing everything they can to be the best dad and mom, and there’s no doubt it’s paying off. “Despite everything Ben and Jen have been through, the kids couldn’t be more grounded,” a separate source previously revealed to Closer in December 2019. “Violet, Seraphina and Samuel are so well-behaved and polite.”
The source noted their children aren’t even phased by their parents’ fame and fortune. “While Ben and Jen are Hollywood royalty, they’re determined to give their brood a normal, stable upbringing,” the insider explained. “The kids are lucky enough to grow up in luxury surroundings, but aren’t overly spoiled.”
Ben and Jen sure know what they’re doing!
