Jennifer Garner Opens Up About Raising Kids In The Public Eye
Jennifer Garner has recently opened up about raising her three kids in the public eye. The Hollywood actress shares her children, Violet, 13, Seraphina, 10, and Samuel, 6, with her ex-husband Ben Affleck.
Speaking to WSJ Magazine, the big screen star says that she does her best to juggle her career with her personal life as best as she can, knowing that the world might also be watching her every move, too.
When asked about how she ‘adapts’ to her career and being in the spotlight, Jen said,
“Being someone who is well known requires an enormous adaption. Who am I now? How do I go through the world? Then there’s having children and, in my case, a career that’s a very selfish one. The combination of those things is the largest adaption of all. When I had kids, I started considering how jobs worked for my family. How much am I going to ask of my partner and kids? What’s worth it and what isn’t?”
“Something Ben and I used to say to each other all the time is, ‘We have to adapt.’ We were surrounded by paparazzi,” the mother-of-three further explained. “There were so many things you wouldn’t expect. We’d be left alone at Disneyland and then we would be at a park in Santa Monica. But if you love something, you’ll do whatever you need to do.”
With that being said, it looks like Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have been doing a phenomenal job of co-parenting, despite their circumstances. As a matter of fact, Ben is often seen joining his ex-wife and their three children for church service every Sunday. Clearly, Ben wants to be a father that is present all the time. Kudos to them for putting their children first in their lives.
