Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Went Trick-or-Treating With Jennifer Garner

We love friendly exes.

No, this isn't a trick — Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were really spotted trick-or-treating with Affleck's ex Jennifer Garner over the weekend. The cordial exes met up while their kids enjoyed Halloween night in a neighborhood in Malibu, California.

On Sunday, J.Lo and Ben took their kids to Huckleberry restaurant before the Halloween festivities began. At one point, Ben's ex Garner, with whom he shares Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9, met up with the reunited couple.

"Everyone gets along and the focus is always on the kids. Jennifer, Ben and Jen Garner all wanted the kids to have an amazing Halloween," a source told People. "The kids are friends and wanted to go trick-or-treating together. It made sense that they all went together."

The source added that as Ben's busy schedule resumed the next day, it was a great time to spend some quality family time together.

Affleck and Garner wed in 2005 before announcing their separation in 2015. The exes' divorce was settled in October 2018, but the former pair appear to remain cordial. Affleck even posted a tribute to Garner in May for Mother's Day. "So happy to share these kids with you," he wrote to Instagram. "Luckiest parents in the world. Thanks for all the good you do. Happy Mother's Day. Love, their Dad."

A source also previously told E! News that amidst the news of the Bennifer reunion, Garner's focus remained on the kids.

"She's trying to live her life and raise her kids, and the last thing she wants to be doing is be dealing with Ben's love life," the source said. "Her focus is always on the kids' happiness and Ben being a good father."
