Ben Affleck has 3 kids with wife Jennifer Garner who just had their first boy Samuel earlier this year. And he admits Jennifer does most of the work caring for their kids.
“I am not very present in the rest of my life. My wife’s very patient. She does everything,” he says. “If I have time, I try to spend time with the kids, even if just to be a physical presence, the bath, whatever. But my mind’s always going, ‘How are we going to light that shot tomorrow? What’s the master shot for that scene? Is there even going to be a master?’ Just ruminating endlessly. Because for me — I wish it was discipline or being a great artist. But it’s just anxiety.”
Jennifer Garner recently revealed that Ben does want to expand their family, but she is good with three! “The fact that Ben wants another is true . . . ” she said. “I can tell you that would be a pretty uphill battle with me,” the busy mom said. “I am not anticipating having any more kids!”
