Despite the family time, it sounds like Ben Affleck’s 43rd birthday celebration at Disney World’s park, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, wasn’t exactly a joyous occasion. Ben was spotted there with Jennifer Garner and their kids yesterday on his birthday. An onlooker said the two didn’t look too happy together.
Ben celebrated his birthday with Jennifer, their three kids (Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel), and his mother, Christine. However, there seemed to be tension between Ben and Jen. An onlooker explained:
[N]either of them looked too happy. They didn’t even look at each other. They were talking to the kids, but they didn’t talk or even look in each other’s direction. They seemed like strangers – awkward strangers.”
Is this really a surprise? Something tells me the only way Ben got Jen to participate in this birthday celebration was to make it a family vacation.
A source said:
As always, it’s about the kids and they will always put them first. Everyone had fun. They put them first no matter what. All Ben wanted for his birthday was to be with his children.”
Another source explained what the onlooker described:
They have had a great weekend and the eyewitness saw them engaging s [sic] a family.”
Here’s a picture of the two that someone tweeted:

Honestly, I think Jennifer deserves a medal at this point. I’m not sure I’d have the poise to go on a family trip to a public place where you know they’re going to get photographed. I think Ben would’ve gotten the kids for the weekend to celebrate without me if I were in Jen’s place. Hopefully the kids had a fun time, at least! The pictures accompanying this post were taken last Friday in Atlanta, when Ben took his kids and mother to a science center in Atlanta before they jetted off to Orlando.
