Ben Affleck Celebrates Birthday With Children and Estranged Wife Jennifer Garner
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner may have made the decision to part ways in their marriage but they seem to be having a hard time staying away from each other. First, they were spotted in an Atlanta home together and now, E! confirms that the duo along with their three children took on Orlando for Affleck’s forty-third birthday. This comes on the heels of rumors that the marriage ended due to Affleck cheating with the nanny, who has been cruising around town in a brand new Lexus. But it seems that there is some magnetic force or maybe even a glimmer of hope that Ben and Jen can reconcile. Ben, Jen and daughters Violet, Seraphina and son Samuel spent the day at Universal Studios where they became particularly enchanted by Harry Potter World Land and Hogwarts.
The family also is said to have utilized the park by going on rides but a source has told E! that they did not make their presence known. “They looked like they were having a great day together.” The ex-couple was “smiling and the kids looked very happy and adorable too.” Jennifer is renting a home in Atlanta while she is filming “Miracles From Heaven.” Ben has been stopping by as a frequent visitor to see his children as he is reigniting his hit HBO show “Project Greenlight,” which gives aspiring filmmakers a chance at making a real movie. Both parties have also been spotted still wearing their wedding rings however Jen’s could be due to her new movie.
Though they are separated, a source has told E! that they are trying to keep it as normal and comfortable for their children as possible. “Jen and Ben are still in communication. They are working through the separation for the kids and as a family.” The source also let it be known that Ben has no interest in starting a new relationship with anyone, any time soon. “Ben’s focus has been on his family and his work—with family coming first.” We wish them nothing but the best and a very happy birthday to the new Batman.
