The 48-year-old actor was spotted clad in all black, sporting sunglasses and a face mask while walking around the city alongside his nine-year-old son. He stylishly paired the open black leather jacket with a dark tee underneath, along with black jeans, and a pop of white with his fresh looking sneakers.
The former couple tied the knot in 2005, and officially divorced in 2018, but Affleck still appears dedicated to his co-parenting relationship with the 13-Going-On-Thirty star. Just last week, The Accountant actor was spotted visiting Garner’s house to pick up Samuel, and the exes have also previously been spotted hanging together in support of their son at swim lessons.
The doting father was also recently seen bonding on an intimate outing with his teenage daughter Violet, as the two ventured out for ice cream on a sunny day in L.A. a little over a week ago.
The Santa Monica sighting comes just after the Gone Girl actor returned from a romantic getaway in Miami, with former and current lover, Jennifer Lopez.
Bennifer, the former couple who called it quits on their two-year engagement in 2004, are giving their romance another go, and the two are reportedly head over heels for each other once again.
The hot-and-heavy couple has been spotted heating things up across the country, as they first spent time together in Big Sky, Mont. before their most recent trip to Florida. The reunited lovers packed on the PDA on a romantic Miami getaway where they rented an $18 million mansion.
One source noted that Affleck "never looked more dapper" than when he and J.Lo "dated years ago," and the Selena actress seems to have a lasting effect on Affleck's style.
"Jen has influenced Ben's style change because she looks so great herself," a source shared. Fans have even begun to notice his new look and polished style after rekindling the old flame with Lopez.
The On The Floor singer, who is well-known for her fitness routines, healthy glow and fit physique, has also reportedly motivated the Batman alum to focus on his own health and fitness. According to an OK! exclusive, Lopez is encouraging Affleck to spend more time at the gym and even quit smoking.
