Just in time for Father’s Day, superstar and super dad, father of three with wife Jennifer Gardner, talked to Extra and US Weekly about his positive experience being a dad and whether there are more little ones in the cards. About his current role as father to Violet, 7, Seraphina, 4, and Samuel, 15 months, Affleck told Us, “Raising kids is the greatest thing I think a person, or at least I, could ever do in my life. I know what the best part of my life is and it’s my kids and it doesn’t mean there aren’t other things that aren’t great, but I know sort of what the center is”. It’s nice to know that in spite of his recent success, including winning an Academy Award for Argo; Affleck has kept his family as his focus. However, as for having any more, Affleck quickly quashed that idea, telling Extra, “That’s not going to happen. We’re in a really good place.… Continue reading
Ben Affleck’s Oscar snub just got a bit less worse. After the release of this year’s nominees, one of the most popular upsets was the star dad’s lack of a nom for his director role in feature film, Argo.

If we told you there was a note on your windshield outside from Ben Affleck because he hit your parked car, you’d probably think it sounded more like a movie. But that’s exactly what happened to some (un?)lucky California resident. Ben was out with his two daughters, Violet and Seraphina, when he accidentally sideswiped a parked car and knocked off one of the mirrors, prompting him to leave the following note:
“Hi, knocked off your mirror! Very sorry! Will cover everything –Ben”
We’re sure Ben would have done the right thing anyway, but considering the accident must have happened while he was being followed by paparazzi—it prompted for some very obvious photo opportunities. Who else can say they got Ben Affleck’s autograph when he hit their car?… Continue reading

The couple’s third child is joined by big sister Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3. Having two little girls and now a baby boy might take time to get used to for the new mommy who recently said, “It would be so weird to have a boy.”
Congratulations Ben and Jen on your beautiful, growing family!… Continue reading
