Jennifer Garner turns 43 today--and we're guessing she'll have her adorable family by her side.

The Lone Star State–born actress, became a household name playing a CIA officer in the hit series Alias---a role that earned her a Golden Globe for best actress in a TV series. She also made her mark starring alongside hubby Ben Affleck in Daredevil, and had every girl singing "Love is a Battlefield" with her girl-power performance in 13 Going on 30.

Now the Danny Collins actress's favorite role is being mom to her three kids, while also juggling an A-list career. "I'm still wiping a bottom, making three meals a day, dealing with sass—and also trying to work," our October cover star told InStyle. "I'm too happy to be a moody nomad all the time."

We expect that her hubby will be taking the busy birthday girl out on a much-needed date night.
