Honestly, we were disappointed when “Bennifer” bit the dust. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck felt like one of those celebrity couples that really had things squared away and knew what they were doing. When they filed for divorce last year, we were a little crushed!
That said, Jennifer and Ben are demonstrating they do know what they are doing—showing the rest of us how to separate in an adult and amicable fashion while willing to support one another. For Father’s Day, Jennifer Garner posted a gracious Instagram post celebrating her husband’s parenting paired with an image of the wistful father looking down at one of their three children. She said, “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.” Aw…
Ben Affleck put up a sweet post featuring a card that one of his children gave him (we assume) with a fitting message for “Batfleck.” The actor also toasted his wife’s hard work, writing, “I can think of three incredible reasons why today is so special. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and father figures out there, and to the women that empower them to be the best they can be. We are all so fortunate beyond measure.” Damn! These two are dominating mutual respect and understanding!
According to reports, Ben, Jen, and their kids spent the day together in Santa Monica. We should all be so gracious and kind to our fellow parents and fathers on Father’s Day—and the rest of the year.
