Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner celebrated the 4th of July together with their three children yesterday, nearly three months after officially filing for divorce.
The duo was seen with their family at a parade and celebration in Santa Monica, which isn’t too far from their home in Brentwood, California. They were accompanied by their kids—Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5—and their fluffy Golden Retriever. Affleck and Garner were seen spotted sharing a laugh from their seats as they watched the parade.

They exes first announced their separation in 2015, and filed for divorce in April 2017, where they both sought legal and physical joint custody of their children. Their official separation was reported a month after Affleck revealed he completed a treatment for alcohol addiction. In his telling Facebook post, he thanked Garner, calling her “my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do.”
Their joint celebration on the Fourth isn’t Affleck and Garner’s first reunion since filing for divorce. The two were also seen together on Easter, just a few days after news broke of their legal separation, and just last month they vacationed at Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas with their kids.
In a recent statement, the actress commented on her life after amicably divorcing from her husband: “I have three wonderful kids and my family is complete.”
