Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's youngest son, Samuel, is now ten years old and growing up so fast! 

The little boy has two older sisters, Violet and Seraphina, and now has step-siblings, after his dad married Jennifer Lopez. She shares twins, Emme and Max, who are now bonding with their new family too.

Both Jennifer and Ben have done a good job of keeping their children out of the spotlight, meaning on the rare occasions Samuel is seen in photos, fans can't get enough of him. 

He's transformed a lot over the years and has gone from being the shy, blonde-haired youngster who was always being carried in his mother's arms, to a sporty young lad with long locks.

Jennifer is a doting mom to her three children who she shares with ex-husband Ben Affleck 

Jennifer has previously been seen on the sideline of her kids' soccer games or riding their bikes together and it appears Samuel inherited his mom's charitable genes too.

Neither of his famous parents talk publicly about him often as it appears he prefers life away from the spotlight. 

He was thrust into it recently, however, when he was photographed out at a car dealership with his dad and stepmother - only he had an unfortunate accident as he bumped a Lamborghini into a BMW after being allowed into the driver's seat.

Luckily, nobody was hurt, and a representative for the actor told TMZ that no damage was caused and all parties involved were okay.

Jennifer and Ben had three children during their marriage 

Jennifer has spoken about Samuel's preference to fly under the radar in the past. Talking to Dr. Oz back in 2016, Jennifer revealed that her son doesn’t feel comfortable around photographers. 

"It’s a shame because I have a four-year-old son and of all my kids, he hates them the most — he hates them," she said. "And every time he sees the cameras, which is still every day, he says, 'I don't like that. There are two things I don't like, mom. I don't like cameras and I don’t like being laughed at. I don't like if I feel like you’re laughing at me.'"

Despite their parent's split, Samuel and his siblings appear to have a close relationship with their mom and dad as it's clear they've made their children their priority regardless of their personal relationship.
