Ben wrapped his latest movie and is heading home to play Mr. Mom. We hope he plays Mr. Husband to Jen Garner, too!
It’s finally Jennifer Garner‘s turn enjoy a little personal time while her hubby Ben Affleck takes over daddy duty at home with their two girls, Violet, 5, and Seraphina, 2½ — and he’s very excited! “My wife’s going to a movie and then it’s going to be just pure Mr. Mom time!” Ben tells UsMagazine.com. But now that Jen is getting a break from practically being a single mom, when will the couple enjoy quality time together? From the sounds of it — never!
When asked what he loves most about Jen, he says, “What’s not to love?” But, instead of spending time with his wife, Ben plans on taking a trip to the mall to find her a Christmas present. We will give him some credit — that’s a step in the direction, considering he did admit to Ellen DeGeneres that he usually just goes to CVS on Christmas Eve and picks her up something like a “little Godzilla that goes around.” HollyMoms, how unhappy would you be to get that gift from Ben on Christmas morning? “It sounded bad, I know!” he says to Us, explaining his holiday shopping routine. “When I watched it I was like, ‘I don’t come off very well here.’ But I have that experience quite a bit.”
Ben says what he meant was that Jen is much better at the job! “Basically, my wife is very in-depth with all this stuff, really sharp, very thoughtful, very thorough,” he explains. “And so for me, I get kind of panicked, I put things off and I just don’t know what to get so just buying her a present — I put more work into that than she does into buying fifteen!”
