The magazine insisted that with a baby along the way, it will only be right to take a step back and re-evaluate their relationship. While many were undoubtedly rooting for the couple to make it, Gossip Cop reported that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are not planning to reconcile anytime soon. The outlet also debunked rumors of Garner’s alleged pregnancy.
Early this month, Garner and Affleck went on a family vacation in Italy. The stars took some time off their busy schedule and had a quick getaway at Venice’s Gritti Palace luxury hotel with their children Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel.
“A lot of the damage in their relationship has been mended. They’re in a really good place.”
Insiders close to Jennifer had different takes on the possibility of reconciliation. While some believe that it was only a matter of time before they get back together, given how the relationship is going, others insist that the split is still permanent. They held that while she has forgiven him, she would not take him back anytime soon. Jennifer was said to be only tolerating him for the sake of the kids.
“Ben and Jen are not getting back together. They’re co-parenting and showing the kids Europe while he’s there filming. That’s all it is and they’re happy with this arrangement,” a source said.
In an interview with Vanity Fair back in March, Jennifer Garner shared that they have been separated for months even before she heard about Ben Affleck’s affair with the nanny. The Elektra star insisted that Affleck’s infidelity was not the cause of the divorce. She, however, admitted that their kids were deeply affected by the scandal.
If asked if she would do it all over again, given how their marriage turned out, Garner said that she would marry him again in an instant. The actress added that having Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel is one of the best blessings in her life.
“He’s the love of my life. What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous,” Garner said of Affleck.
Although things did not work out between them, Jennifer Garner said they have not given up on their roles as parents. She explained that they will always be there for their three kids, adding that they will always be their top priority.
“Sure, I lost the dream of dancing with my husband at my daughter’s wedding. But you should see their faces when he walks through the door. And if you see your kids love someone so purely and wholly, then you’re going to be friends with that person.”
