• Jennifer Garner attended a church service last Sunday
  • The actress was joined by her son, Samuel
  • Ben Affleck skipped the outing because he's currently filming

Jennifer Garner recently attended a church service with her 7-year-old son, Samuel.

The mother and son tandem were photographed just before they entered the church. Garner wore a black and grey ensemble, which she paired with her black shoes and dark sunglasses. The “13 Going On 30” star also tied her hair in a half bun, and she even smiled for the cameras.

Samuel, on the other hand, wore a blue t-shirt and navy-blue jogging pants during his outing with his mom. Garner’s ex-husband, Ben Affleck, was visibly absent from church, and their children Violet and Seraphina weren’t around either.

As of late, it is unclear why Violet and Seraphina didn’t attend the church service. But Affleck is busy filming for his upcoming movies.

Garner and Affleck have been co-parenting their three children since they announced their separation in 2015. However, it was only in 2017 that their divorce was finalized.

A source previously told Us Weekly that Garner and Affleck tried to make their marriage work. For years, they have attended couple’s counseling, but this didn’t help much. Years after they kept trying, the two agreed that it’s best to go their separate ways.

Following the announcement of their separation, reports swirled that one of the reasons why their marriage didn’t work was because Affleck had an affair with their children’s nanny, Christine Ouzounian.

While speaking with Vanity Fair, Garner denied that the Nannygate issue was the main reason for their split. But the “13 Going On 30” star did appease fans by telling them that she wasn’t asleep during their lengthy marriage.

Meanwhile, Garner also made headlines a few days ago after the actress shared a sexy photo of herself wearing a black two-piece swimsuit and faux fur. The actress revealed that the photo was taken years ago when her kids while still very young.
