Ben Affleck Just Posted a Very Surprising Message for Ex Jennifer Garner on Instagram
Most Hollywood couples sever ties with each other completely after divorce or break up and go their separate ways but that’s not the case with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner.
It has been almost a year since the couple’s heartbreaking divorce, but the two continue to show undying support and love towards one another.
Just recently, Affleck honored two very special women in his life on Mother’s Day. In a sweet Instagram message, he thanked his wife for being an amazing mom to their three kids. He also gave a special shout out to his own mom for raising him to become the man he is today. Talk about loving someone even after a messy breakup!
On May 12, Ben Affleck posted a very beautiful message on his Instagram account in celebration of Mother’s Day, dedicated to his mother and ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
According to the post, Ben said these two beautiful women had shown him the true meaning of love and he will forever be grateful for having them in his life.
The 46-year old renowned actor honored his most two important women by posting a picture of the two while strolling around the park on one sunny day together. He also wishes the two mothers the best in all their future endeavors.
The Philanthropic Plans
While on the subject of love, Ben also disclosed his plans to make a large donation to two philanthropic organizations in honor of the women in his life as well as mothers around the world. Affleck reveals he’s donating towards Cut 50’s Dignity for Incarcerated Women campaign to support women around the world
According to him, it’s a national initiative that aims to reduce the population of people committing crimes to create safer and peaceful communities, especially for women.
He’s also supporting National Ballout, an international organization that collaborates with different groups to equip black moms and caregivers with new skills and better job opportunities. Aside from that, the foundation provides services to help these incredible moms take care of the children and families.
The Platonic Love
Ben’s post received a lot of support from fans who were touched by his charitable act. They expressed how kindhearted the actor was for celebrating the special day with a tribute to his mom and even the mother of his own children, even though the two divorced a long time ago. Some Instagram users wrote that they wished more men in this world could be like Affleck.
They could also see Ben’s love for his ex-wife behind this touching post, even though their relationship is purely platonic now. As of this writing, the parents are pretty hands-on with their three children Violet, 13 years old, Seraphina, 10 years old, and Samuel, 7 years old.
Garner and Affleck began dating sometime in 2004 after they met and co-starred in Pearl Harbor and Daredevil. Their relationship of ten years resulted in three beautiful kids before it all went downhill in 2015 with a massive cheating scandal.
In April 2017, Ben and Jen filed a divorce and decided to part ways but it wasn’t until October last year when their divorce was finalized. Both parents share custody over their three kids and remain good friends to this day.
