Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were seen hugging in a car while Jennifer Lopez was not present. What does this gesture mean between ex-spouses? Is there more than a simple friendship?
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were one of Hollywood’s most popular couples and had three children during their 13 years of marriage: Violet, Samuel and Seraphina. However, they announced their separation in 2015 and officially divorced three years later. Despite this, the actors have maintained a good relationship for the sake of their children and have been spotted together on several occasions sharing family moments and celebrations.
But no one expected them to hug in Ben’s car while Jennifer Lopez, Ben’s current partner, wasn’t with them. This happened a few hours ago when Ben Affleck picked up Jennifer Garner and her daughter Seraphina at the actress’ house. According to photos shared on social media, Ben and Jennifer Garner were very affectionate with each other and she leaned toward him from the back seat of the car.
At one point, Ben Affleck rested his head on his ex-wife’s shoulder and closed his eyes as she wrapped her arm around him. Seraphina, who was sitting next to her father, watched the scene with a surprised expression. Then Jennifer Garner got out of the car and waved goodbye to Ben with a smile.
This episode has caused a lot of reaction on social media, where fans are wondering if there is more than just a simple friendship between Ben and Jennifer Garner. Some think they can reconcile while others think it’s just a gesture of mutual support. The truth is that Jennifer Lopez was not present at the time, which increased speculation about the status of her relationship with Ben Affleck.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck resumed their romance this year after getting engaged in 2004 and breaking up shortly before their wedding. Since then, they have been seen very much in love and happy, and it is even rumored that they might be planning a wedding. However, these photos of Ben and Jennifer Garner may put their future as a couple in question.
