Ben Affleck really loves Jennifer Garner. Like, really loves her. They’ve been married since 2005 and unlike many Hollywood relationships, they’re not constantly in the press over cheating claims and have seemingly gotten over any issues privately and with grace. They have three adorable kids and basically just seem like a great couple, despite Garner’s tendencies to overshare about her husband’s super sperm and whatnot. Anyway, with all this love in the air, it’s only natural that Ben would gush about his wife at every available opportunity, most recently after his Directors Guild Award win on Saturday night for his latest project, Argo.
It was a celebratory evening for Affleck – and it was also date night with his doting wife, Jennifer Garner, by his side (and often with her hand on his back).
“I have to just thank my wife for being the best person in the world. I love you,” Affleck, 40, told the audience as he accepted the award for outstanding directorial achievement for Argo. “I don’t need to look at the teleprompter to know why I want to thank you. I want to thank you because I love you.”
He added: “I want our daughters to break boundaries.”
Aw, isn’t that sweet? And speaking of sweet, THESE KIDS:
Let’s just compare this photo up here ^^ to this photo right here:
Because really, if we’re comparing photo #1 to photo #2, there’s a big, big difference. Jennifer Garner‘s lips are generally full as it is, but in the top picture, they’re, like, ready to burst open. Kind of freaky, if you ask me.
Thoughts? Fake lips or no fake lips?
No, but seriously: good for them, I suppose. I know I hate on Ben Affleck a lot, and that’s because he strikes me as a bargain basement discount power tool with an inflated me-complex, and I think Jennifer Garner‘s way too sweet and patient for him, but hey. It’s not my marriage, and it’s apparent that these two get along in some sort of way, because girlfriend just keeps popping out little girls and they ain’t divorced yet.
Either way, nothing can get me down today – I painted my living room a very zen green yesterday and Lowe’s is on its way today to install my new carpet, so I suppose I’m seeing everything through rose-colored glasses. Even if we did happen to find out that these guys were having a baby now because Jennifer Lopez is ten different kinds of single, I’m sure I’d find a way to put a positive spin on that, too.
Congratulations on the pregnancy, guys, and I hope this little darling is as sweet and adorable as your other two!
