Although both parties are peacefully divorced and are currently taking part in co-parenting, actor Ben Affleck paid tribute to his ex-wife Jennifer Garner through an Instagram post, captioned by a touching message to Garner, saying that he wishes her a happy Mother’s Day and expressed how he is thankful for all the good that she does for him and their family.
The Batman actor posted some rare and beautiful family photos, showing most of Garner’s and their kids’ face. There is even a picture of a very young garner holding the sweet bundle of joy, smiling like the happiest mom in the world. There is also another picture where the Affleck-Garner family is seen dressed up with costumes inspired by The Wizard of Oz.
In the photo, Affleck is dressed up as the Tin Man, while Garner dressed up as the Good Witch Glinda, alongside their three children, Violet who is 15, Seraphina, 12, and their youngest son Samuel, 9. Affleck blurred the faces of their children for their safety.
The former couple has been on good terms ever since their divorce back in 2015 which broke most of their fan’s hearts. Both parties wanted the best for one another and their children. Even the Elektra star said that she was not bothered by the rumour surrounding Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s reunion.
Garner remarked that she wants what is best for her former husband and that she is not bothered with him and Lopez reuniting again. The couple met while filming Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor (2001). That time, the two were still with their former partners; Garner was still married to first former husband Scott Foley and Affleck was still engaged to former fiancé Jennifer Lopez.
They then met and worked together in Daredevil where Affleck played the main lead, and garner played his character’s badass love interest Elektra. After this, the two were still dating their former partners but the public can see the spark. And after months and months, Garner announced that she and Foley are separating. Affleck and Lopez also soon announced that they finally broke off their engagement.
They made their first public appearance as a couple during the Boston Red Sox game. After that, the couple began dating and Affleck proposed to Garner on her 33rd birthday. The former couple got married in a private ceremony, had their child in 2005, and was married for ten years before they finally decided to break up in 2015.
