Jennifer Garner is Focusing On Her Kids Amid Ben Affleck & Lindsay Shookus News

Jennifer Garner is dealing with the news of Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus‘ affair going public the best way she can – focusing on her family.

The 45-year-old actress reportedly knew about the relationship for a while, but now that it’s out there, she is making sure her three children – Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5, – are OK.

“It’s not an easy situation for Jen,” a source close to the actress told People. “She knew it would happen soon. Ben just can’t be alone.”

“It would have been easier for Jen if Ben would have just dated someone that Jen wasn’t familiar with,” the source added.

Lindsay has reportedly not met Ben‘s kids yet.

Jen and Ben have talked about not introducing the kids to people they date until it’s serious,” the insider said, adding that she “isn’t thinking about dating — she just wants to protect and spend time with the kids.”

    She’s handling it with so much class, given how much of an a** her ex-husband was, that I am amazed.

    I have the deepest respect for how she is handling the mess her ex-husband made. Despite rumors of affairs, she puts her children first. At least one of the children’s parents has a good head on her shoulders. She’s a class act.

  • Barry

    She always had the thing to date her co-workers : Scott Foley on Felicity, Michael Vartan on Alias, Ben Affleck on Daredevil… But hey, that’s not really a good idea to trust Hollywood producers with your love life, and, ultimately, you family life.
    Especially when you husband used to date Jennifer Lopez just before you… Talking about stability !
    That’s sad, but what’s happening to her was so predictable.

    Jenn has so much class and now she is free of that trash she was married to. he is a disgrace getting his new girlfriend splashed all over the press. disgrace. Jenn is a world above him.

    Women always end up not dating, staying with their kids while the pigs who call themselves men whore off with their enablers while their kids watch on.

    Those kids are NOT going to grow up the way they should have now. Their destines have been changed and their development already marked with trauma. Fathers and mothers breaking away is NEVER not a scarring experience. No matter what is done. You have destroyed stability and now there is another woman already in the picture? Those poor kids.

    Ben is a bstard.

  • Delores Pauldo

    Don’t feel sorry for her. She should have start dating someone herself. She should leave the kids out are this. They will be just fine. Glad been find someone to be with. Got tired are seeing them together like that.

  • Delores Pauldo

    So glad ben found someone to be with.
