Ben Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner attracted attention in Boston over the weekend while they were simply picking up coffee. The couple went to Darwin’s at the edge of Harvard Square on the way to the set and attracted many people, whose hearts were apparently melted because of the way Ben played with Violet while mommy got the coffee. A customer said that "Ben [is] obviously gaga over the baby, [he] played with and talked to her while Jen got the stuff." Apparently no fans actually approached them, with many saying "it seemed to be a sort of family moment."

The couple, who had been living in Massachusetts while Ben directs his new movie Gone, Baby, Gone, split this weekend when Jennifer and Violet left for Arizona to start filming Jen’s new movie.
