Once again serving as a shining example for co-parents everywhere, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are giving everyone major feels on Father’s Day. On Sunday, Garner posted a heartwarming tribute to Affleck on Instagram, celebrating the dad that he is to the former couple’s three kids: Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6.
“Our kids are lucky to have a dad who looks at them the way you look at them and loves them the way you love them, @benaffleck. #happyfathersday #threeluckykids #haveagreatday,” Garner captioned a sweet pic of Affleck staring adoringly at one of the children (who was just out of the frame).
Since splitting in August 2016 after a decade of marriage, Garner and Affleck have remained on the same page about one thing: putting their kids first.
In her first interview after their divorce, Garner emphasized to Vanity Fair, “The main thing is these kids — and we’re completely in line with what we hope for them. Sure, I lost the dream of dancing with my husband at my daughter’s wedding. But you should see their faces when he walks through the door. And if you see your kids love someone so purely and wholly, then you’re going to be friends with that person.”
In the time since, Garner and Affleck have vacationed together, gone to church together and, in general, seemingly seized every opportunity to spend time together as a family. Earlier this month, the exes looked friendly watching Samuel’s baseball game together. And just this week, Garner dropped by Affleck’s office while out and about on errands.
If only we could all follow their lead when it comes to amicable co-parenting! Violet, Seraphina and Samuel are lucky kids indeed.
