Jennifer Garner dons brown mini-skirt to pick up son Samuel from school

Four-time Emmy nominee Jennifer Garner donned a brown suede mini-skirt and striped cardigan to pick up her son Samuel Affleck from private school in LA’s Brentwood neighborhood on Thursday.

The Texan-born, West Virginia-raised 49-year-old and her ex-husband #2 – two-time Oscar winner Ben Affleck – will celebrate the 10th birthday of their youngest child on February 27.

The Daredevil castmates are also parents of two teenage daughters – 16-year-old Violet and 13-year-old Seraphina – from their decade-long marriage, which ended in 2018.

On December 14, the 49-year-old actor-director made headlines for saying he felt ‘trapped’ while married to Jennifer and wouldn’t have gotten sober had he stayed.

‘We probably would’ve ended up at each other’s throats. I probably still would’ve been drinking,’ Ben lamented on The Howard Stern Show.

‘Part of why I started drinking was because I was trapped. I was like, “I can’t leave because of my kids, but I’m not happy, what do I do?” And what I did was [I] drank a bottle of scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution.

‘Ultimately, we tried, we tried, we tried because we had kids, but both of us felt like we didn’t want this to be the model that our kids see of marriage.’
