In the recent Mother’s Day celebration, Ben Affleck sent his love to only two women: his mom and his ex-wife. Jennifer Garner, Affleck’s ex-wife, is the mother of his three children: Samuel, Seraphina and Violet aged 7, 10 and 13 respectively. The couple finalized their drawn-out divorce in November 2018 after three years. It was an amicable parting; both couples are often seen hanging out together as friends.
Although it doesn’t seem like there’s a rebound in sight for Ben and Jennifer as Jennifer is currently in a relationship with CEO John Miller, Ben still has nothing but love for his ex-wife who he describes as an incredible mother.
“Happy Mother’s Day to the two incredible mothers who have shown me the meaning of love,” he wrote on his Instagram page. “Today I am making donations to two organizations in their honor: @cut50’s #DignityForIncarceratedWomen campaign, a national initiative to help reduce the prison population while making our communities safer, and @NationalBailout, an incredible organization that works with groups all over the country on Mother’s Day to bail out black moms and caregivers, provide supportive services and fellowship opportunities to help end money bail and pretrial detention.”

One commentator wrote
“You are such a kind and generous human being Ben and your work with those charities and people who need your help inspires us all. Have a blessed Mother’s Day,”
And another person wrote, “you’re a good ex.”We usually point to a thriving relationship or marriage to gush about how they are “couple goals.” Well, how about ‘divorced’ couple goals? Signing a divorce paper doesn’t mean you should stop working together to be better parents to your kids. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner definitely serve ‘divorced’ couple goals. They provide a breath of fresh air from the suffocating aftermath of Tonto Dikeh and Churchill’s divorce.
