Jennifer Garner may be a Hollywood star but that doesn't stop her from facing the same problems as the rest of us! The new school term has already taken its toll on the mum-of-three, who revealed to her fans on Instagram on Monday that she had been taken ill with the flu. Alongside a photo of herself looking worse for wear, Jennifer wrote: "Back to school," which was accompanied by a sad face emoji and hashtags that read 'come and get it,' 'you know you want it,' and 'husky mama.'" Many of Jennifer's fans were quick to sympathise with the star and wish her a speedy recovery. One wrote: "Feel better soon," while another commented: "Feel better! And stay far away." A third added: "One of the reasons why I deeply hate September."

Jennifer had mixed feelings about her children going back to school. She was looking forward to having some time to herself, but she quickly missed the noise and their company when they did go back. On Instagram, she wrote alongside a back-to-school meme: "It was time, Lord, yes. But why does the house feel so empty?"

Both Jennifer and Ben rarely share photos of their children on social media, preferring for them to stay out of the spotlight during their childhood. The actress has previously spoken out about the privacy battle she and many other Hollywood stars fought in court, which helped ensure that the paparazzi keep their distance from their children after they were constantly hounded on a daily basis. While photos are rarely posted, Jennifer often gives an insight into her family life on her social media pages.
