From the looks of it, it was surely a fun-filled family day. Hollywood couple, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner proved to us one more time that they have mastered the art of parenting. Yes, art, because if you have a little girl, you need to creatively get inside a child’s mind to see what makes her tick.
The star couple took their daughters to Build-A-Bear in Los Angeles on Saturday for their oldest daughter, Violet’s birthday. A birthday bash wouldn’t be complete without some guests, so they invited a few of Violet’s friends. The two girls, Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 3, and the little guests had their hands full of kiddie stuff and goodies—like teddy bears—emerging from the shop.
Don’t you just love birthdays? Happy birthday, Violet!

After being married for seven years, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck surely know how to pull off a date!
The parents of three were spotted on a night one sans their children as they attended a fundraiser event at Spago Restaurant in Beverly Hills. The actress and actor, both 40, were dressed for the occasion, with Garner in a sexy black dress and Affleck in a gorgeous navy suit. However, despite the absence of their children, it seemed like they still stuck around their minds! Apparently, the event was to help raise money for the benefit of less fortunate children.
Jennifer was all smiles during the no-children night. In October, the actress revealed that having a third baby put her “right over the edge.” Meanwhile, she also told Ellen DeGeneres that she doesn’t really want to have children anymore, but her hubby is “a wonder sperm kind of guy.”
Well, apparently her gorgeous hubby still wants another baby! Jennifer shared to Extra back in August:
“The fact that Ben wants another is true . . . I can tell you that would be a pretty uphill battle with me . . . I am not anticipating having any more kids!”
Well, we shall see about that!

Seems like the duo is back!
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, former writing partners and definitely best buds, are back working together! The actors, who won a “Best Original Screenplay” Oscar thanks to 1997’s Good Will Hunting, were seen going to a business meeting together in Sta. Monica, Calif.
In October of last year, GQ reported that the stars were planning to join forces to make a movie out of the story of Whitey Bulger, the legendary Boston mobster.
In this first project they’re doing together after almost 15 years, Affleck is set to direct, while Damon is rumored to star. According to sources, screenwriter Terence Winter is set to write the script.
But even if it’s been quite a while since they’ve collaborated publicly, the two have stayed as close as they can be. Affleck revealed to The Hollywood Reporter:
“[Matt and I] see each other almost too often. I wonder if his wife is thinking, ‘Is he really going to come over every night?’”
Well, seems like Affleck and Damon fans have something to be excited about!
Ben and Jen are friendly exes!
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, or “Bennifer,” as the media liked to call them, were once the hottest couple in Hollywood. At one point they were even engaged to be married, but eventually ended up ending their romance due to the pressures brought on by the intense attention and scrutiny their relationship was getting in the media.
After their breakup, Ben began dating (and eventually married) his “Daredevil” co-star Jennifer Garner. Jennifer, meanwhile, got back together with former flame Marc Anthony, whom she also married and, very recently, separated from.
Still, ten years and five children later—three for Ben and two for Jennifer—the former lovers are still good friends.
Affleck, who covers the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, admits that he and Lopez have remained in touch with each other after all these years. He shares:
“We don’t have the kind of relationship where she relies on me for advice… but we do have the kind of relationship where there’ll be an e-mail saying, ‘Oh, your movie looks great.’”
The “Argo” actor adds:
“I remember when she got American Idol… I said: ‘This was really smart. Good luck.’ I touch base. I respect her. I like her. She’s put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I’m really pleased to see her successful.”
Isn’t that mature of him?
It seems Jennifer Garner feels like a first-time mom again.
Garner, 40, though already a mom to two daughters (6-year-old Violet and 3-year-old Seraphina), shares to a pal that she’s still in the process of getting the hang of having a baby boy. The pal spills:
“Samuel’s at an age where he is starting to do more. He has been so much fun for her and such a different experience from the girls.”
The friend adds, that 6-month-old baby Samuel is “super chill and go-with-the-flow, but a total mama’s boy.”
Ben Affleck’s wife became pregnant with baby Samuel two months after finishing the production of her latest film, Odd Life of Timothy Green.
