In a recent interview, Ben Affleck called estranged wife Jennifer Garner an "amazing mother," adding that he's "really lucky to have her as a partner to co-parent these kids with" — and in light of his rehab confession, that statement rang true.
Less than one week after Ben admitted he'd been in rehab for alcohol abuse, Garner was spotted taking their daughter Seraphina to her soccer game in Brentwood, Calif. — attempting to keep their kids' lives as normal as possible.
As RadarOnline.com reported, Affleck made his rehab confession on Facebook on March 14: "I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront," he wrote. "I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be."
"I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step," he went on.
"I'm lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen Garner, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I've done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery."
Affleck and Garner share three young children — Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5.
