Cape Town - Jennifer Garner just got a thumbs up from her son for being an excellent mom!

The actress and mother-of-three shared a photo of a cheque written to her by her son, Samuel, for $168,42 (about R2 442), USA Today reports.

The 7-year-old wrote that the cheque was for "being my mama".

Jennifer captioned the photo, which she shared on her Instagram account, "Apparently, birthing and raising someone is valued at $168,42. I guess I should keep my day job."

The 47-year-old’s followers were quick to comment on the touching gesture, People reports.

"Is this fully tax deductible? He got it in Dec 29... #nonprofitmom," one user joked.

"Written on Dec 25th, which means it also qualifies as your holiday bonus. Lol, don’t spend it all in one place!" another added.


This isn’t the first time the star has shared relatable mom moments on social media.

In November, Jennifer shared an Instagram post about rushing to get her daughter to school on time.

"She barely made the bus on time, but at least her mother kept it classy," she wrote, with an accompanying photo of her with wet hair, dressed in a robe and house slippers with a giant mug in hand.
