Ben Affleck is a Stay-at-Home Dad

Stay-at-home daddy Ben Affleck takes his daughter Violet, 22 months, for an afternoon Sunday stroll through New York City. Baffleck, of course, had to wear his support for Boston with his Red Sox cap!

Baby Violet kept warm with a “Baby Rosebuds & Satin” blanket by Max Daniel in hot pink.

Working mom Jennifer Garner acted in the preview for Cyrano de Bergerac at the Richard Rodgers theatre. Previews for the play started on Friday for the classic romantic comedy. Cyrano de Bergerac officially opens Nov. 1.

    That has to be an uber loving home to live in.

  • suzy

    love them. :)

  • Nice

    Like any normal dad. Good for you. I love these couples out there, especially actors, who are finding a way to make their lives work.

  • Susan

    Love the Afflecks, they really seem to work as a team to raise their child. P.S. Jared, I’m glad to see the Zac-free days continue. Love Zac but IMO he was starting to grow weary of the attention.

  • Sue

    Cute family, always will like them.

  • Sue

    very cute family, always happy to read and see pictures about them. Something good to see is always a plus, thanks Jared.

    Yo Jared there’s a spelling mistake, it’s spelt Barffleck not Baffleck.

  • license

    She also looks like a careerist. She seems to LOVE the attention.

  • annie

    This guy is such a douchebag.

  • Anonymous

    Poor Violet she looks bored. Ben should have let her stay and play at home.

  • Anonymous

    Jared why are you posting pictures of this idiot. Just post pictures of the hot cute dads like Brad Pitt.

  • Grace

    Goooo Sox!

  • Kira

    After a lot of (other) stories in America, it is refreshing to see this lovely couple balancing their personal life with neither working at the same time. Good for little Violet and what a lucky girl indeed to have such a loving and nurturing father!

    I witnessed the incredible and magical relationship of father-daughter with my step-daughter. A healthy relationship between father-daughter is critical for the sound psychological development of the female as an adult.

    Congratulations, Ben, Jen, and little Violet!

  • Rory

    They are so boring. All they do is drink Starbucks while walking around looking like slobs. YAWN!

  • Get a private jet

    BORING!

  • Mamamia

    CORNY COUPLE..nothing exciting, Affleck is a trying hard dude, always will be no matter how rich he is.

  • Mediterranean

    I wish someone told her that not to go out with whatever she was wearing.

  • NADIA LIKES SIENNA!!!!

    THIS WOMAN IS FAT,THIS MAN IS UGLY AND THIS KID IS ADORABLE

  • jenho

    Jennifer Garner looks like one who flew over the cuckoos nest with that phony smile plastered on her face.

  • martine

    Taupe doing what taupe does best, dressed all in Taupe. If it wasn’t for Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner would only be another former TV star.

    JLo = Bad Publicity

    Violet = Good Pubicity

    Ben has not changed at all.

  • Cissa

    I love Jen… I love Ben…
    They are so cute togheter… the best couple 4eva…
    Violet is so cute too…
    Jen is so beautiful, so happy…

  • Jana

    He is a stay at home dad because he is a horrible actor and a whinner. These two are a nothing couple.

  • amy

    Boy, does she look boring in that outfit. If you’re going to wear neutrals, then your face shouldn’t be completely neutral also. But, I forgot, she is completely neutral and bland.

  • bea

    They are a cute family, and Ben is so handsome….
    for more about this family, come to my forum:

  • d.j

    does Ben work at all or he uses his woman`s money for his life?he always is at home and she works.

  • wow

    brad pitt could learn some lessons from him. Some people do know how to give working a break and be with the family and NOT follow their wives around the world like a freakin’ puppy dog. Kudos to Ben!!! That guy looks like a wonderful father. He’s devoted. You don’t need 4 kids hanging off your leg to win the “father of the year award”! Anyone that picks on this couple should just go and seek out a therapist , b/c you have mental problems. This couple just ooozes warmth. They truly are down to earth …. plus who can’t love a red sox fan :-)

  • A normal mom

    Wow! The hate for these people is a little much. They look nice. They seems happy. Why the hate? Maybe just a little jealous? It’s ok to be boring/common in my book. Hey, not everyone can be Miss “I am the high and mighty giver” Angelina. Thank God!

  • Big ego ben

    Ben has a big ego and an arrogant person. He blames everyone and everything else apart from himself for his failing career.

    Now he’s got himself a superficial wife, who is not all that sweet as she portrays herself.

    Both of them are very ambitious people and thinks highly of themselves.

  • Violet

    Too bad for Violet, she is looking more and more like Ben growing up.
    I just think this aby has some weird eyes, its too small and too deepset. She has some mouse ears, too. Sorry, I know its not nice to bash a baby, just cant help but notice, that she is not that cute.

  • Debbie

    Fantastic family!!!

  • mar

    28 wow it’s unfair that everything bad is placed on angelina, as if she was the only one that has to travel in her family. here, JG is also traveling (germany and wherever) and if she takes her kid should be bad, also, if she leaves her kid at home should be bad too,.

  • Regina

    Love Ben, think Jen’s boring. Violet is so adorable.

  • BECKY SMITH

    WELL AT LEAST BEN IS NOT LIKE KATIE HOLMES WHO HAS NOT WORKED AT ALL
    EXCEPT FOR ONE MOVIE.HER JOB IS TO TAKE CARE OF SURI FULL TIME.

    BEN AND JEN DECIDED THAT ONE WILL WORK AND THE OTHER WILL TAKE CARE OF
    VIOLET.

    WHEN WILL WE SEE MORE PIX OF BEN AND JEN AS A COUPLE?

  • Mediterranean

    to 28 wow,

    We are certainly NOT ask you your therapist phone number, because it seems that he/she has not helped you yet.

    Leave the Jolie-Pitts out of any thread on JJ for God’s sake!!! But it’s hard to be the best like them, isn’t it?

  • http://elearnqueen.blogspot.com dogandponybot

    I love Jennifer Garner in Alias…

    Unfortunately, the quest for definition seems to have left her with a thickened jaw, big veined hands, and furface (Madonna / Ms Olympia). What’s going on???

  • ivermom

    #28- You said it so well!

  • wow

    anyone that picks on a child, whether it be the color of their skin, their facial expressions, their features or even their flaws is a low life piece of trash! Violet is a very cute little girl.. she resembles her mother mostly ( and unless you knew what Ben looked like as a toddler, who are any of you to do the comparison?). Her eyes are her mothers – you can see it. I think JJ needs to keep the children off this site. Seriously, there are sick demented mentally challenged people out there …. and when they pick on kids the post should be removed. Food for thought, Jared.

  • cute family

    #30 Read this week’s Parade magazine…the only person he blamed for his failures was HIMSELF! It’s crazy how many people have this warped impage of him.

    ans he has been working…have you not seen all the recent publicity for GBG.

    Love them…love that Jen can be goofy (not fake).

  • mimi05

    somebody is trying to look like brad and angie. ben is playing the good dad because he has a movie coming out. i bet you won’t see pictures of him again taking care of violet when his movie comes out

  • mariadel barrio

    #30 I totally agree with you. They are so full of themselves and really take themselves seriously lol. Both bad actors and I think he is a terrible person, she is very calculating.

  • to 41 mimi05

    get a life dumb a**. Ben is always attentive to his daughter. If anyone is playing a role for father of the year it’s Brad! Yippee, “let me go adopt my girlfriends 2 kids, throw a biological one in there to satisfy my NEED and then she can adopt an extra one in her name only”. AND then maybe I’ll gain the publics respect for being a “daddy” since they don’t respect me as an actor or as husband! He’s a loser, you’re a bigger one for liking him. Ben doesn’t need to put on a show – him and Jen are pretty low key for actors. NOT like the attention wh*res that make up Brangelina.

  • mimi05

    to 41 mimi05. you got proof that he’s attentive? it’s always jen who’s taking care of their daughter. Brad has always yearned for a family while he was with Jen so I’m not surprised he adopted Angelina’s children. Brad is a respected actor. He’s made more movies compared to Ben. Lastly, Brangelina are the ones chased by paparazzi and not the other way around. Stop defending Ben you dumb ass!
