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.”
