Being a single working parent can be stressful enough as it is, but just imagine doing it in the public eye. That's what Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are currently going through, after confirming their divorce last July. Now that both the stars are on the road doing press for their latest films (Miracles from Heaven and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, respectively), the conversation is, of course, focused on their split and how it's affecting their three kids, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel.
"You know what? We're doing really well. The kids are great, they'll be getting up and going to school soon. And Ben is there, and he'll be taking them. We will make it work," Jen said on Today Wednesday. "It's not easy to go through it — period. I have found going through it in the public eye, it's just another facet of it. But for anyone, when your life shifts in any way, it's tricky enough. But I have found people to be so warm and loving that it hasn't been nearly as bad as you might imagine."
Ben appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show (airing Wednesday), where he mirrored the Miracles from Heaven star's sentiment. He explained to Ellen how he and Jen have managed to work out a plan so that they can always be there for their kids despite their break-up. "We're good friends and we're doing our best and our kids are fabulous and we're working our best for them. And what else are you gonna do?" the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star shared.
If these two ever need advice on co-parenting, they should look no further than The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills exes Yolanda Hadid and Mohamed Hadid, who are successfully raising their kids together post-divorce. Yolanda recently opened up about their process to The Daily Dish, below.
