In one of the first times since Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck got married, Lopez, Affleck, and Affleck’s ex-wife Jennifer Garner were all photographed together at an event to support Affleck and Garner’s 14-year-old daughter Seraphina.
Daily Mail ran photos of the three arriving at a performance hall in Santa Monica with their children to watch Seraphina perform. Lopez’s 14-year-old twins Emme and Max were there, along with Seraphina’s older sister Violet, 17, and younger brother Samuel, 10.
Lopez was dressed fashionably in a cropped Chanel teal-gray tweed jacket, a teal turtleneck, and jeans. Garner was slightly more casual in a gray turtleneck and jeans with a black coat and light blue sneakers. Affleck, meanwhile, dressed in all black and gray, pairing a black button-up with dark denim and a gray blazer. You can see photos of all of them here, on Daily Mail‘s site.
Of blending their families, Lopez explained, “The transition is a process that needs to be handled with so much care. They [the kids] have so many feelings. They’re teens. But it’s going really well so far. What I hope to cultivate with our family is that his kids have a new ally in me and my kids have a new ally in him, someone who really loves and cares about them but can have a different perspective and help me see things that I can’t see with my kids because I’m so emotionally tied up.”
