Ben Affleck flashed a nervous smile while climbing into the passenger seat and letting his 15-year-old daughter Violet take the wheel.
The 49-year-old Justice League actor looked every part the doting dad when his oldest child with Jen Garner jumped in the driver's seat of his black Mercedes after dinner in the ritzy neighborhood of Brentwood, CA.
Affleck and Violet weren't alone. He also had his other two children — Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9 — in tow for the rare date with all his growing spawn.
Keeping it suave for the outing, Affleck wore black jeans, an unbuttoned white shirt, a blazer, and a pair of boots.
Slipping on a mask and making sure his kids were protected too, the Academy Award winner held his only son's hand while walking through a nearly abandoned parking lot to the upscale eatery on Tuesday.
Violet — who will turn 16 in December — looked happy and eager to begin driving, but her dad, not so much.
Affleck did have a proud papa moment when she climbed out of the driver's seat. He was photographed planting a sweet kiss on his oldest daughter's forehead, clearly acknowledging that she's growing up before his eyes.
The Argo actor enjoyed a night out with his family sans his girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez.
The couple — who was on a PDA tour over the summer — hasn't been spotted together in weeks.
J Lo jetted off to Italy for fashion week, and they opted not to spend time together over Labor Day.
Meanwhile, Affleck's ex-wife has reunited with her on-again boyfriend John Miller, proving her former husband isn't the only one who can recycle past lovers.
Just one week ago, Miller was caught sneaking out of Garner's home — located in the same neighborhood as Affleck's $20 million mansion.
Their Los Angeles reunion seemed to solidify the rumors that the two were back together after breaking up in March 2020.
Romance rumors began circulating again after Garner was seen with Miller in New York City last month.
She looked beyond happy while walking the city streets with the CEO before disappearing into an apartment building.
Garner was first linked to Miller in 2018.
Despite being together for two years, their relationship didn't get a chance to survive the pandemic. Garner and Miller reportedly ended their romance "before LA went into lockdown."
