It sounds like Ben Affleck is working to turn things around after a rough summer when we were flooded with rumors about his alleged affair with his kids’ former nanny, Christine Ouzounian (which he still denies as far as I know). Christine seems to have adopted a lower profile these days, and we saw Ben leaving a family counseling session with Jennifer Garner. In these pictures he enjoyed time at church with Jen and their kids, something he enjoys doing.
A source said:
His family is all he cares about. This is what makes him happy and it makes sense that he looks happier. He enjoys the time with his family and that includes Jen. They are still working hard at this.”
That’s quite a change from what people were saying earlier this summer, when they were complaining about Jen making Ben feel “inadequate” with all of her criticism! Ben and Jen seem to be making good on their resolution to co-parent their kids and still spend time together as a family.
The source added:
It’s still really hard and every day Ben’s learning new positive ways to cope and that goes on both sides. He’s just focused on his family.
“They had to take a step away from each other at first and now they are coming back together and you have to find your footing first and then move forward.”
I’m glad to see them making positive steps to finding their “new normal.” This can only be beneficial for Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel.
