Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner news: Ex-couple seen leaving restaurant together


Despite being in the midst of a divorce, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have recently been spotted having a family dinner with their three kids.

The estranged couple, who announced their separation in June 2015, were seen leaving a lavish restaurant in Brentwood, Los Angeles with their two girls, Violet,10 and Seraphina, 6 and youngest son, Samuel, 3.

A report from Daily Mail was able to take a snap of the family. Affleck was pictured wearing a grey jumper and dark denim jeans. Garner was also on a dressed-down fashion with a large cream-colored cardigan over a plain T-shirt, a pair of tight-fitting jeans, and a hair tied in a carefree ponytail.

The two decided to end their 10-year marriage and made it publicly known a day after their 10th year wedding anniversary. They released a joint statement at that time, saying: "After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding."

Rumors then spread that Affleck had an affair with their nanny, Christine Ouzounian, causing them to go their separate ways. The allegation was later on denied by Affleck.

However, in spite of them working on their divorce, they still have been spending time together and with their children. They even celebrated Garner's 43rd birthday as a family back in August. Moreover, they have not removed their wedding bands just yet.

In his acceptance speech for taking home a trophy at the 2013 Oscars for the film "Argo," the actor received a backlash after referring to her marriage a piece of "work."

"I want to thank my wife...for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases. It is work, but it's the best kind of work. And there's no one I'd rather work with," he said on stage.

He later on appeared on "Saturday Night Live" where he clarified what he meant by his speech. He said, "I want to tell you how I wish I had ended that speech. I couldn't do any of the things I do without you, without your support. You're my angel, my wife, my world."
