Ben’s two Jens unite! Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Garner came together as the blended family supported Affleck and Garner’s daughter, Seraphina, 14, in a musical event in LA.
Jennifer Lopez and her husband Ben Affleck were joined by his ex-wife Jennifer Garner on Sunday to celebrate their daughter’s musical event.
53-year-old Affleck and 50-year-old Garner were joined by their children as they arrived at a performance hall in Santa Monica, California.
Lopez and Affleck were both seen looking like a happy family with her child Emme, 14, while Garner was spotted arriving at the venue with her and Affleck’s oldest daughter Violet, 17, and son Samuel, 10, while Seraphina, is assumed to already be in the venue.
The whole family was dressed in casual clothing for the function.
Lopez was spotted waiting outside the venue with Ben’s mother Christopher Anne Boldt as well.
The blended family get-together comes after Lopez discussed the joys and challenges of joining a blended family while speaking with Extra at the premiere of her new romantic comedy Shotgun Wedding on Wednesday.
“It’s going really, really well, it’s amazing, we have five beautiful, beautiful children, blessings…” she said.
“We dropped one of them off at school today and we were just kind of thinking about what our lives have become and just feeling so blessed and grateful for where we wound up in our lives,” she continued. “It’s a beautiful night, that’s all I can say.”
During a recent interview with Today, Lopez said she had had her “best year” in a long time. “We moved in together, the kids moved in together. So it’s been, like, a really kind of emotional transition. But at the same time, like, all your dreams coming true and it’s just been a phenomenal year. Like, my best year, I think, since my kids were born,” she said.
Lopez discussed how she tries to juggle her busy singing and acting careers while being a mother and now a stepmother, “I put my best foot forward as much as I can,’ she told People, and then added that she prefers to keep it to herself when she’s stressed out by her obligations.
“I’m not one to share my angst. I don’t feel like that’s my life as a performer. You always show the best of you,” she explained. “But I’m a human being like everybody else, and I suffer in silence at times.”
Lopez then went on to say that she has to think carefully about how many personal details she wants to share with the public.
“I’ve been thinking a lot about that — like, what parts of myself do I share with my audience? And what it means to be an artist and to be authentic, and I feel like there are some things that need to be said and shared because I think, like you just said, it’s like, “Oh, you have it all together.”‘
Lopez continued, “But the truth is, I’m just like anybody else. I struggle at times, and I wonder at times and I doubt at times, and I’m insecure.”
