In a surprising turn of events, Ben Affleck spent Father’s Day with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner, even as his current wife, Jennifer Lopez, publicly praised him amidst swirling divorce rumors. 

The 51-year-old actor, known for his role in Pearl Harbor, was seen entering the gated community where Jennifer Garner, 52, resides on Sunday.

Jennifer Garner, exuding casual elegance, was spotted strolling around the neighborhood. She wore a grey V-neck sweater layered over a white T-shirt, paired with blue jeans and periwinkle-colored trainers. 

Her look was completed with a pair of classic black wayfarer sunglasses, and she held a can of Waterloo Sparkling Water. The actress, known for her natural beauty, showcased her signature brunette tresses worn down and opted for a makeup-free look.
