Being on mom duty is hard, especially when you have to take care of your kids while your ex-husband frolics all over New York City with his once fiancée-turned-on-again-girlfriend.
Jen Garner made the most of her solo time with her children while her former husband Ben Affleck packed on the PDA with his leading lady Jennifer Lopez 3,000 miles away in the Big Apple at the Met Gala.
As her ex continued his affection-filled tour with J Lo on the red carpet of the year's biggest night in fashion, Garner romped around Los Angeles with the former couple's three kids — Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9.
While her outfit didn't fit the Met Gala's "American Independence" theme, Garner slapped on a brown flowing number, perfect for a date with her spawn in sunny SoCal.
Rocking the simple patterned attire, Affleck's ex-wife paired the afternoon look with strappy sandals, an Apple watch, and retro sunglasses.
Exiting her $14 million rental property with her kids in tow, Garner lead her pack down the street to strut on a stylish walk.
Garner and Affleck's middle child looked like the ultimate trendsetter. Rocking bell-bottom denim, Seraphina wore an electric blue shirt showing off her stylish confidence.
While it's unclear where the group was going, they definitely weren't headed to the red carpet with Affleck.
The Justice League star switched out his family for his smoking hot girlfriend.
Affleck and J Lo have been on a PDA tour since going public with their on-again relationship in April. Their unnecessary fondness for one another didn't stop on the Met Gala red carpet.
The Love Don't Cost a Thing singer came dressed to kill for the year's biggest night in fashion.
Channeling her inner cowgirl and sticking to the theme, J Lo sizzled in a Ralph Lauren dress with a dangerously high slit up to her thigh.
Wearing a fur jacket and a western hat for the photo op, but her greatest accessory of all was having Affleck on her arm.
The chic couple stole the show when they appeared at their second major event together since becoming Bennifer 2.0.
But when they leaned in for a kiss with masks on, everyone went from swooning over J Lo and Affleck to questioning their real motives for their unwarranted PDA.
