The reason for Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner’s move overseas isn’t exactly scandalous, but it is raising some eyebrows.
As the actors continue their reign as Hollywood’s most amicable exes, their plan to move to London with their three children has been revealed. Their relocation comes almost a year after announcing their divorce following 10 years of marriage.
E! Online reports the relocation is only temporary for Jen and their kids. While Ben rents a home in North London during production of the 2017 DC epic “The Justice League,” his family will visit him for one month of the shoot in May. “They take turns bringing the kids to where the other is on location and just renting a house while they are there,” an insider told Us Weekly.
Ben and Jen’s plan to spend time with their children together overseas isn’t exactly a shock. The couple has been living together since their separation and are said to have no plans to change their arrangement. Not only are they living under one roof with Violet, 10; Seraphina, 7; and Samuel, 4; they have also been spotted out and out together. The exes were seen “sitting very close” to each other and “hugged upon seeing each other” at their children’s karate class in Los Angeles last month, E! reports. Ben even leant his ex-wife the sweater off his back during the outing.
Despite calling their marriage quits, the duo have continued to sing each other’s praises in the press. Garner said she didn’t regret marrying the “Batman v Superman” star during a sit-down with Vanity Fair last month.
“I didn’t marry the big, fat movie star; I married him, and I would go back and remake that decision,” she said. “He’s the love of my life. … He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy.”
Ben had equally complimentary things to say about his ex-wife at the “Dawn of Justice” premiere in New York City on March 20. “She’s an amazing mother, and I’m really lucky to have her as a partner to co-parent these kids with,” he said. “We try our best; we put them first, and that’s what we do.”
