Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck In The Bahamas With Kids

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner Visit The Farmer's Market With Their Children

Keeping things civil for the kids!

Prior to announcing their plans for divorce, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner headed out of Hollywood. The A-listers took their three children – daughters Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and 3-year-old son Samuel – to their property in the Bahamas, PEOPLE reports.

According to sources, the pair waited for the kids’ school to be out for summer before revealing their impending divorce.

“They plan on co-parenting and doing absolutely everything in the best interest of the kids,” says an insider, adding that the their kids are “their top priority.”

As for the day they announced the split – which was one day after their 10th wedding anniversary – Ben and Jen made sure they were all together.

“They were together as a family that day,” a source says. “The family felt it was important to be together and they were together. The family is united and, no matter what, will protect the kids. This isn’t easy for anyone and it’s devastating to Ben too. He loves his family and will always put them first.”

In the weeks before their split, the Gone Girl actor, 42, and the Dallas Buyers Club actress, 43, were spotted with their kids near their L.A. home, including a trip to the farmers’ market on June 14; a shopping trip at the Brentwood Country Mart on June 10; another stop at the farmers’ market on June 7; and an ice cream date with their daughters on May 28.

Once they are back from the Bahamas, the pair will continue to live together in the family’s Pacific Palisades home, as they plan to share custody.

Busy Philipps: Happy 2nd Birthday Cricket


Look who’s 2!

Cougar Town star Busy Philipps celebrated her daughter Cricket‘s second birthday Thursday (July 2) with a series of Instagram images and messages.

“Happy 2nd birthday to our little firecracker!!!!,” Philipps wrote. “I’m glad she proved my husband and I to be terrible liars when we told everyone for years that we were “one and done”. It seems totally insane that we ever thought that because we simply cannot imagine life without this little ball of light and laughter, our little Cricket.”

In another shot, the Dawson’s Creek alum, 36, posted a photo of Cricket’s birthday cake.

“I’m making Cricket a big cake next weekend for her party but Birdie made her this pink swirl delight for today that she frosted all by herself! I’m so proud of both my big girls!,” she captioned the cute pic.

The proud mom went on to share a throwback photo of a newborn Cricket. “#tbt exactly 2 years ago,” she wrote.

Philipps and her husband, screenwriter Marc Silverstein, are also parents to nearly 7-year-old daughter Birdie.
