Estranged couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are seen by the public and media together despite announcement of getting a divorce, but that is only because of their three children, friends close to the two clarified to the media.
“As always, it’s about the kids and they will always put them first. Everyone had fun. They put them first no matter what,” a source told People magazine.
Affleck celebrated his 43rd birthday with former wife Garner and three children. The whole family had fun as they toured the Wizarding World Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Studios on Saturday, but the couple of 10 years did not look “too happy,” onlookers observed as told by the news.
“They did not even look at each other. They were talking to the kids, but they did not talk or even look in each other’s direction,” the source continued.
“They seemed like strangers—awkward strangers,” the source added.
Focused on putting their children first
Former nanny to the Affleck-Garner family Christine Ouzounian squealed to the media – after her alleged termination by Garner – that she was having intimate relations with Affleck, who in turn, repeatedly denied the issue. Affleck was seen nervously pacing back and forth at his Alabama flat. People close to him said Affleck’s concerns are on their children.
“All Ben wanted for his birthday was to be with his children,” the source emphasized. Another friend said, “They have had a great weekend and the eyewitness saw them engaging as a family.”
