15 Super Dads: Ben Affleck
This fortnight we bring you one celeb father everyday who deserves to be celebrated for his parenting skills and gives all dads #fathergoals to live up to. Today in focus is Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who is best known for his role as DC Comics superhero Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Claim to fame: Having been part of blockbuster films such as Armageddon, Argo, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Gone Girl, Ben Affleck is a well-known figure in Hollywood who has also produced, directed and written many films such as The Town, Argo and Live By Night. He has also won a huge number of awards including two Oscars, one BAFTA Award and three Golden Globe Awards.
Fatherhood: Here’s one example of a Hollywood superhero who is a super dad in real life too. Ben Affleck, who had recently parted ways with long-time sweetheart Jennifer Garner and yet continued to live together under the same roof to co-parent their children, has mutually resolved their issues and put an end to the causes for their marital discord. What’s more, they have happily renewed their marriage vows and are back together for the sake of their children. Despite the actor’s busy schedule, like any regular dad, Ben takes his children on outings regularly, which could range from a visit to the local market or a playdate at the playground or dining out. He even does their math homework sometimes although he is not too proficient in it and ensures that their every need and wish is taken care of, even it means making sacrifices for them.
Lessons learnt: Divorce is a bitter choice for any married couple, but it can become even difficult when there are kids involved. A certain degree of sensibility and understanding between the exes can go a long way in raising confident and happy children. So if you and your ex can make an agreement to raise the kids together, don’t shy away from it since it is the best thing you can do for yourself and especially for your little ones.
