On a balmy Friday afternoon in Florence, Italy, the renowned streets witnessed a poignant reunion. The versatile actor, Ben Affleck, 50, landed in the city, greeting his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, 51, and their three children with warmth and affection.
Making his way from a private jet, the "Argo" director was the epitome of casual elegance. Donning a classic black button-up shirt paired with tailored beige trousers, Affleck's outfit was punctuated with a pair of vibrant multicolored Nike sneakers.
His smiles radiated joy as he hugged each of his children: Violet, 17; Seraphina, 14; and the youngest, Samuel, 11, revealing the enduring bond the family shares.
Garner's Elegant Florentine Ensemble
Garner, always the style icon, looked effortlessly chic in a striped white shirt, paired with cream-colored trousers.
Adding an Italian flair to her attire, she sported leather sandals, complemented by a subtle gray purse and a tasteful necklace. Her luscious brunette locks cascaded gracefully, offering a contrast to her light ensemble. Later, the "Elektra" star was spotted browsing a local bookstore, where she shared a gleeful exchange with an acquaintance.
Hollywood enthusiasts will recall the early days when Affleck and Garner's paths first crossed on the set of "Pearl Harbor." Their chemistry spilled over from the silver screen to real life, leading them to co-star in the superhero flick "Daredevil." Prior to Affleck, Garner was wedded to Scott Foley from 2000 to 2004.
Yet, destiny had other plans. Garner and Affleck, drawn to each other, sealed their love in a 2005 wedding. Life gifted them with three children, starting with Violet in the same year, followed by Seraphina and Samuel in 2009 and 2012 respectively.
Yet, as fate would have it, in 2015, the couple announced their separation. Their marriage legally concluded three years post the announcement, but they've remained amicable, showcasing the maturity of their relationship. The narrative took another turn when Affleck rekindled a past romance with global icon Jennifer Lopez.
The duo celebrated their love, walking down the aisle last July, marking a new chapter in Affleck's life. Yet, his reunion with Garner in Florence epitomizes the timeless bond family and true friendships hold.
