All smiles for these exes! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner looked extra cheerful together in L.A. on Thursday, Sept. 3. The estranged couple — who went to therapy for years before announcing their divorce in June — were spotted leaving what appears to be a doctor’s office.
The friendly day out is a fresh change for the pair, who share three kids, daughters Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and son Samuel, 3. As Us Weekly exclusively reported in August, the Nine Lives actress was “disgusted” with Affleck after he dated their 28-year-old former nanny, Christine Ouzounian. “She hasn’t been responding to his texts either,” an insider previously told Us of Garner.
Despite their differences, the exes, both 43, have been spotted on several occasions together since confirming their split. Last month, they celebrated Affleck’s birthday with a trip to Disney World in Orlando, Fla., with their kids. The family rode the Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride and visited Universal Studios’ The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
“This was all he wanted to do for his birthday, go to Disney World with his family, and that included Jen,” a source told Us at the time. “It was clear they were together for the kids and putting up a united front.”‘
After all, the kids are their No. 1 priority. “[Garner’s] priority is shielding the kids as much as possible. She just wants to move forward and make everything happy and normal,” a Garner pal told Us. “They are happy kids, with lots of love and positive experiences.”
