Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck reunite for holiday
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck celebrated Independence Day together.
The former couple – who announced they were splitting in June 2015 after 10 years of marriage – were spotted at the 68th Annual Fourth of July Parade in Pacific Palisades, California on Monday (07.04.16), along with their oldest two children, daughters Violet, 10, and Seraphina, seven.
However, onlookers insist there were no signs the former couple – who also have a four-year-old son, Samuel – have reconciled.
A source told People magazine: "[Ben] and [Jennifer] were sitting together watching the parade. They were not being affectionate.
"Ben and Violet were holding hands, and Ben was smiling watching the parade and walking around the community."
It was recently claimed Jennifer is "open" to reuniting with the
‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ star after they grew closer while spending time in London with their kids while Ben worked on ‘Justice League: Part One’.
A source said: "Jennifer followed Ben to England and the trip has given her a whole new outlook on their future.
"She still feels conflicted, and she’s only telling close friends that she’s started to open up to the idea that they could get back together. She thinks they have a long road ahead of them, but Ben is already proving to her that he’s committed to changing."
The 44-year-old star is said to have reconsidered her future with the 43-year-old actor following a romantic trip to Paris.
The source said: "Jen vowed never to go back to Ben, but recently that’s all changed. The truth is Ben desperately wants her back and he’s been doing everything in his power to show Jen that he means it, that he’s sorry and he’s changed."
The ‘Juno’ actress recently admitted Ben is the love of her life.
She said: "I didn’t marry a movie star; I married him. And I would go back and remake that decision. I ran down the beach to him, and I would again. You can’t have these three babies and so much of what we had. He’s the love of my life. What am I going to say about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous.
"When his sun shines on you, you feel it. But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it’s cold. He can cast quite a shadow.
"The main thing is these kids – and we’re completely in line with what we hope for them. Sure, I lost a dream of dancing with my husband at my daughter’s wedding. But you should see their faces when he walks through the door. And if you see your kids love someone so purely and wholly, then you’re going to be friends with that person."
