Newborn-son Samuel stays home as Jennifer Garner enjoys time out with 6-year old Violet and husband Ben Affleck
Sometimes the chaos of a having a new born at home means it’s fun to spend time alone with your other children.
Actress Jennifer Garner, 40, was spotted buying craft supplies at a paint-your-own ceramics shop Color Me Mine with daughter Violet in Beverly Hills recently, reports the Daily Mail. The pair then met up with dad Ben Affleck for a meal nearby.
Jennifer was wearing a knee-length pleated grey dress, nude heels and a short denim blazer, while Violet went floral in a white-and-pink dress with a pink satin bow with a gorgeous flower-shaped purple bag.
Jen and Ben, who have been married for seven years and own homes in California, Massachusetts, and Georgia, are reported by the Mail to be overjoyed with their new addition of Samuel to their family. Their first son is now three-months old.
Color Me Mine is said to be a favourite haunt of other art-loving celeb parents Gwen Stefani, Mark Walhberg, Jessica Alba, Christina Aluilera, David Beckham and Heidi Klum. According to the Mail, Jennifer often takes Violet and her 3-year-old sister Seraphina there.
The actress has a new film out in August, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, about a childless couple desperate for a baby who find a 10-year-old boy on their doorstep one morning.
"It is a story about living in the now," she told Popsugar at CinemaCon last month.
"It's about enjoying the day that's right in front of you and not wishing for something too far off, just appreciating what you have in front of you, which of course is what parenthood is all about."
According to the Mail, Ben recently described wife Jennifer as a "world-class mom".
Top work, Ben!
