Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Were 'Laughing and Talking' During a Family Outing in Atlanta
As the estranged couple continue to weather the fallout from Affleck’s alleged affair with former family nanny Christine Ouzounian, a source tells PEOPLE the couple looked relaxed and happy while taking their dog and three kids for a walk in Atlanta, where Garner continues to film Miracles from Heaven.
“They were laughing and talking to each other and looked like they were having fun,” said the source.
The latest sighting comes just days after Affleck rang in his 43rd birthday with Garner and their kids Saturday at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Studios, followed by a trip to Disney World a day later.
Although onlookers thought the couple appeared distant during the trip, a source close to the couple said the pair “are both making the best of a hard situation” and “they did it together and the kids had a great time, which is what they both wanted.”
Garner got back to work after the Florida trip, and was spotted on set in Atlanta this past week.
Affleck, meanwhile, was seen meeting with his Eastern Congo Initiative co-founder Whitney Williams at a luxury hotel in Atlanta Thursday. The Argo director was spotted wearing his wedding ring when he met with Williams, with whom he’s working to raise money and awareness for the impoverished region.
Garner and Affleck announced their split in June while on a family vacation in the Bahamas. A short time later, Ouzounian’s friends told PEOPLE the California native admitted to an affair with Affleck. A source close to the Oscar winner, meanwhile, maintains the actor had “a work relationship and a friendship” with her, but nothing more.
On Friday, Ouzounian was spotted taking a walk around Los Angeles, looking casual in gray jeans, a flowing white shirt and shades.
The former nanny has been keeping busy since she ended her position with the family. After a stay at the swanky Hotel Bel-Air, she’s been seen driving her new Lexus convertible around Southern California and sporting a bikini while soaking up the sun at Newport Beach last week.
