This is divorce done right.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, who announced plans to divorce in June after 10 years of marriage, were spotted at an appointment in L.A. Thursday. The exes smiled as they walked to Affleck's car. Though neither actor was wearing a wedding ring, they remain committed to being friends for the sake of their children. In fact, a source tells E! News that the duo is "doing great" and focused on "making sure the divorce is amicable for each other and for the kids."
The Daredevil co-stars spent the summer in Atlanta, where Jennifer was filming Miracles from Heaven while Ben tended to their three children: Violet Affleck, 9, Seraphina Affleck, 6, and Samuel Affleck, 3. Since the family returned to L.A. in late August, Jennifer and the kids have been staying in the family home, which is undergoing renovations. Ben, meanwhile, is living in a rental down the street.
Last week, E! News exclusively revealed that Ben took his two daughters to see Taylor Swift's fifth and final concert at the Staples Center in L.A. Thursday The trio even got to meet the "Wildest Dreams" singer, 25, backstage. "The girls had been begging to go," a source said of the family. "He was so excited for them." Two days later, Jennifer took Seraphina to paint ceramic pots at Color Me Mine in Santa Monica. On Sunday, she took all three kids to church and the farmer's market.
Since announcing their split in June, Ben and Jennifer have been putting on a united front for their kids' sake. "After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time," the actors told E! News. "This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding."
