Jennifer Garner’s extreme parenting

Actress tells of working mum struggle

A-list mums have it easy right? Well Jennifer Garner begs to differ, telling W magazine she has two pretty extreme sides to parenting daughters Violet, 4 and Seraphina, 11 months with hubby, Ben Affleck.


“Its hard on my family. You can’t tell your kids, ‘I’m exhausted, wake up with someone else today,’” explained the 13 going on 30 actress.

“It’s about getting the kids up and fed, getting one to school, getting the other down for a nap, going to the grocery store, picking one up from school, getting the other one down for another nap. But I live my life at two extremes. I’m either a full-time stay-at-home mom or a full-time actress.”


But the busy schedule doesn’t stop the mum-of-two giving it her all and trying her hand at a bit of homemade blending, making her own baby food for Seraphina. “I tell myself, ‘Just give her a jar of food and forget about it! Don’t be so precious!’ But it’s so easy to just puree and freeze.”
