Ben Affleck appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night where he spoke about being a father and said the unthinkable about one of his daughters, saying, ‘She was kind of ugly?’
As the parent of two children, who were both pre-mature, I laughed and thought, ‘so, I’m not the only one?’ While some parents may be outraged hearing a father say those dreadful words, remember it’s after the fact. I used to look at my infant daughter and think how absolutely gorgeous she was. She was and is beautiful both then and now. Years later I looked at a photo of her and thought, ‘what was I thinking?’
Do you think Ben Affleck was out of line by saying this? Is calling your child ugly a ‘no no’?
