We saw the pictures of Ben Affleck arriving in Atlanta yesterday. Jennifer Garner is there with her kids while she shoots a movie. It turns out Ben is staying in a guest house that’s located on the property Jennifer is renting during the shoot.
Ben was seen taking their three kids (Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel) to activities on Wednesday morning while Jen was on the set. A source said:
Ben wanted children and a family his whole life. He didn’t grow up with a present father, so his biggest fear was being the dad that only saw his kids on the weekends. He never wanted that.”
It sounds like he’s really trying his best to keep that from happening, now that he and Jennifer have decided to divorce.
With everything that’s being said about their split, it’s kind of sad. On one hand, it’s great that Ben is doing his best to stay involved with his kids. Yet you have to wonder: if he had done this kind of stuff on a regular basis earlier, would he and Jen still be happily married?
Well, since they’ve made the decision to split, I’m glad that he’s staying in touch with his kids. He won’t be there for long: he’s due in San Diego for Comic Con this weekend. Perhaps he’ll be able to return to Atlanta afterwards.
