Jennifer Garner wished her ex Ben Affleck a Happy Father’s Day on Sunday by posting a touching tribute on Instagram.
“Our kids are lucky to have a dad who looks at them the way you look at them and loves them the way you love, @benaffleck,” the actress wrote alongside a photo of the actor. “#HappyFathersDay #ThreeLuckyKids #HaveAGreatDay.”
Affleck also celebrated the big day by posting a picture of a card he received from one of his children. The Batman v. Superman star shares three kids with Garner: Violet, 12; Seraphina, 9; and Samuel, 6.
“I love you Dad! You are my superhero,” the card read.
“I can think of three incredible reasons why today is so special,” the proud papa captioned the photo. “Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and father figures out there, and to the women that empower them to be the best they can be. We are all so fortunate beyond measure.”
It looks like Affleck spent Father’s Day with his little ones. An eyewitness spotted Affleck driving with Violet and Samuel earlier today.
In addition to paying tribute to Affleck, Garner sent a special message to her own father.
“Hey Dad, Melissa, Susannah and I know how lucky we are to be yours,” the 13 Going on 30 star wrote, referencing her two sisters. “We love you, Dad, and can’t wait to see you SOON! #happyfathersday#threeluckygirls #haveagreatday.”
Garner and Affleck announced their divorce in June 2015 after 10 years of marriage. However, the two didn’t officially file for divorce until April 2017.
Despite the split, the two stars still co-parent their kids. Earlier this year, they celebrated Seraphina’s birthday together. They’ve also spent the holidays together, including Christmas and the Fourth of July, and have even vacationed together.
“Parenting is hard work, but it’s so rewarding,” Affleck told E! News back in 2016. “I certainly do my best. Jen is a superhero mom. She is an amazing mother and I’m really lucky to have her as a partner to co-parent these kids with. We try our best, we put them first and that’s what we do.”
In fact, Affleck, who is dating Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus, reportedly bought a house closer to Garner in April.
