It’s been nearly two years since Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced their shock split after 10 years of marriage, and now she’s finally ready to file for divorce, according to the report.
The couple, who share three children – Violet, 11, Seraphina, eight, and Samuel, four – together, have been often pictured together on social occasions and big holidays sparking speculation they could get back together.
But now Us Weekly have claimed that Jennifer is ready to make it final with divorce papers.
“No matter what happens, Ben and Jen are committed to raising their family as one unit and will continue to do so as it has worked for them,” an insider told the magazine.
While another claimed that the Batman actor had moved out of their Brentwood home.
Garner and Affleck, both 44, married in June 2005 after meeting on the set of the 2001 movie, Pearl Harbor, and then meeting again in 2003 on the disastrous Daredevil.
Despite their split, the couple have talked affectionately about each other in public. Back in February 2016, Jen told Vanity Fair that Ben was the love of her life.
“I didn’t marry the big fat movie star; I married him,” she said.
“And I would go back and remake that decision. I ran down the beach to him, and I would again. You can’t have these three babies and so much of what we had. He’s the love of my life. What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy. I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it.’ But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it’s cold. He can cast quite a shadow.”
With their demanding schedules, the couple would make conscious decisions to travel as a unit with the kids so that they could support each other on location.
While Ben, 44, can’t help gush over the mother of his children, praising her as “the greatest mum in the world”.
He also gave an insight into their cosy family nights, as he told Us Weekly.
“Jen is a really great cook. She’s probably the best cook I know. We had roast chicken this year; it was really, really good. Other than that, we do pizza nights, where a guy comes and makes pizza and nobody has to cook.”
