Despite both his current and former wife having a problem with his bad habit, Ben Affleck’s smoking may not be the source of drama it’s made out to be. Another insider reported to The Daily Mail in September 2023 that Jennifer Garner and Jennifer Lopez are on good terms. “Ben is healthy. The drama of the past and the emotions of divorce are long gone and they are all making it work.” The individual claimed. “It is really a very happy co-parenting situation.”
Garner and Affleck share three children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel Affleck. Similarly, Lopez has twins, Emme and Max Muniz, with her ex-husband Marc Anthony. For the sake of all five children, the celebs have had to navigate co-parenting. Fortunately, the “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” singer and Garner seem to get along rather well, even appearing in public together. In April 2023, Affleck and both women were seen out and about with their blended families. The next month, the trio was reunited again, this time in support of a school production in which Seraphina performed.
While the women are doing their best to make the situation work, Affleck has shown that he’s trying, too. SheKnows reports an insider close to the couple admitted, “He’s cut his habit way down by using nicotine gum.” Although, they continued, “But he admits [Lopez] hates all the gum-chewing as much as the actual smoking.” Baby steps, right?
