You know when you go through a breakup and you’re mostly worried that you won’t get to hang out with your ex’s family anymore? Well, Jennifer Garner definitely isn’t worried about that, because she’s still friends with her ex-husband Ben Affleck’s mother.
Entertainment Tonight reported that the two went on an errand run together around Los Angeles on Tuesday, and some paparazzo snapped the sweetest picture of the two.
They’re both dressed casually, wearing black sandals, loose fitting tops, Garner wears skinny jeans and Mrs. Affleck wears some nice white slacks. They walk with their arms around each other, both smiling as if laughing at a quick joke. The two haven’t commented on their day out together, and Ben hasn’t responded yet either, but with everything that’s gone on within the Affleck-Garner family, it doesn’t seem out of the ordinary for Jen to have a relationship with the grandmother of her children.
Lately, most news surrounding the ex-couple has been focused on Affleck’s new relationship with Lindsay Shookus, Emmy winner and producer for Saturday Night Live. The two have been photographed nonstop around Hollywood and New York. A source spoke with ET about how Ben’s new beau is affecting Jen, if at all. “Jen is trying to move on with her life,” said the source. “Jen is very strong. She is not embarrassed about this at all. Jen isn’t focused on dating at the moment… Her number one priority is her children and making sure they are OK during this.”
So while it’s definitely cool to think that Garner is just out on the town with her ex-mother-in-law, it’s even sweeter that the two have built such a healthy relationship outside of the divorce, especially for the sake of the kids. And even if they are just running errands, who says the two can’t have a little fun or giggle here and there? Nothing is stopping the girl power rushing through this family.
