Ben Affleck spent Father’s Day with ex-wife Jennifer Garner amid reports of turmoil in his marriage to Jennifer Lopez.

The actor seemingly spent the day with his children, whom he co-parents with Garner, who was seen headed to his Brentwood house on Sunday.

Affleck’s son Samuel was photographed riding shotgun as Affleck was seen giving Garner a ride home in the afternoon.

Meanwhile, Lopez showed some Father’s Day love in a tribute to Affleck on her Instagram stories on Sunday. “Our hero. Happy Father’s Day,” she wrote in a caption on a black and white throwback photo of Affleck from his 2001 movie Pearl Harbor, paired with a white heart emoji. The post comes amid growing speculation on the status of the couple’s marriage.

However, Lopez and Affleck were spotted together the day before at Affleck’s Brentwood rental after returning from their US$60mil home, which they recently put on the market.

Affleck and Lopez don’t have any children together, but Affleck has three children — Violet, Seraphina and Samuel from his previous marriage with actress Jennifer Garner. Prior to the rumours of marital problems, the blended family had reportedly been close.

A source told People earlier in June that Lopez and Affleck are “still friendly” despite their marital strain.

Another insider told ET that Lopez and Affleck have “been having issues for a few months and trying to figure things out on their own,” the source revealed.

“Jen has been having a hard time dealing with the general stress of life as well as in her career. She has been experiencing ups and downs while processing everything. She has been throwing herself into work, which has always been an outlet for her to stay busy and distracted.” – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
