The Love, Simon star and Affleck — who share three children, Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6 — announced their separation in a joint statement in 2015, just one day after their 10th wedding anniversary. Their divorce was finalized in February 2017, and the two remain amicable despite their split.

Earlier this year, Garner visited her ex on location in Hawaii for a joint Easter celebration, however, a source told Us Weekly that the reunion was strictly for their children.

“Jen was planning on only spending a few days in Hawaii with Ben and the kids, and then leave them with the nanny so that he could have quality time with them,” the source told Us at the time. “Easter has always been very important to Jen and they typically go to church as a family.”

The insider added: “A few weeks before the kids’ spring break, Jen decided along with Ben that she would spend a bit more time on the island than she originally planned. This was only done because of the kids. Ben and Jen are spending no time together alone without their kids, this absolutely isn’t a romantic trip for them. Ben is very serious with Lindsay, and Jen is enjoying dating a very special someone back in Los Angeles.”

Affleck is currently dating Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus. The two went public with their relationship in July 2017. Garner, meanwhile, recently began dating again. A source told Us in March that “Jen is ready to go with her feelings and give love another try.”
