Ben Affleck Flies to Atlanta to Be with His Kids After Split from Jennifer Garner
The actor had been spotted solo in L.A. without his wedding ring
After a solo weekend in Los Angeles, Ben Affleck boarded a private plane to Atlanta to reunite with his children.
It was a quick visit home for the Oscar winner, who returned on July 3 to the L.A. house he continues to share with his family. In town on business, he was later spotted riding his motorcycle and picking up coffee at a Starbucks, minus his wedding ring.
Affleck subsequently left L.A. to rejoin his kids in Georgia, where estranged wife Jennifer Garner is shooting the film Miracles from Heaven. She was spotted wearing her wedding ring in Atlanta on Monday.
“The minute he was done, he packed up some gifts and got on a plane to see his kids. He is committed to his family. He wants to be with his kids,” says a source close to the couple. “It’s important. He wants them to be stable.”
Why Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck Will Continue to Live Together
The actor/director is racking up the miles, having recently returned stateside after spending time with Garner and their three children in the Bahamas as seen in these exclusive photos. The couple announced the end of their 10-year marriage to PEOPLE on June 30, affirming a “commitment to co-parenting our children.” That’s just what they seemed to be doing on their island vacation with Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.
“He spent a great deal of time hanging with the kids,” the source tells PEOPLE. “They had a lot of great activities they were able to do together with the family and separately that he really appreciated.”
Expect to see Affleck heading to the airport again soon. He’s expected at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday, to promote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
