Jennifer Garner's touching tribute to ex Ben Affleck for Father's Day

The pair remain good friends.

Jennifer Garner took to Instagram yesterday to wish her ex-husband Ben Affleck a happy Father’s Day with a very sweet post.


The mum-of-three shared a filtered picture of the 45-year-old on her Instagram with a touching caption that read:

“Our kids are lucky to have a dad who looks at them the way you look at them and loves them the way you love them.”

Ben also marked the day on his social media with a picture of a handmade card he received from his kids that read:

“Love you, Dad! You are my superhero.”

Sharing a picture of the card on Instagram, Ben said:

“I can think of three incredible reasons why today is so special. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and father figures out there, and to the women that empower them to be the best they can be.

“We are all so fortunate beyond measure.”

The pair announced they were separating back in 2015 and despite reports that they were getting back together, filed for divorce last year.

However, Jennifer and Ben have remained close friends since their split, with a source close to the couple told People:

“The kids love when they all spend time together. As long as Ben keeps working on himself, Jen is happy.

"She will continue to support him because it benefits the kids.”
