Cape Town - After finalising their divorce last month, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are reportedly in a “good place” and remain committed to co-parenting.

A source, who is reportedly a friend of the couple, said the pair had experienced some ups and downs this year but seem to be in a good place, reports Daily Mail.

“Jen and Ben continue to work together to make their parenting as seamless as possible. They really like to do things as a family, be it outings, church, cooking or watching movies,” the source said.

The stars, who first announced their split in June 2015, have three children together – Violet (12), Seraphina (9) and Samuel (6).

According to another source, the former couple spent Thanksgiving with their children at Affleck’s home in Montana, reports People magazine.

“Jen, Ben and the kids were in Montana for Thanksgiving,” the source said, adding: “This was long planned. They always celebrate big holidays together as a family.”

Garner (46), who posted a light-hearted throwback photo in which she dressed up as a pilgrim, wrote on Instagram: “Thanksgiving is for family and friends, food and football – but don’t forget FUN.”

Jennifer has been romantically involved with Cali group CEO John Miller, reports People magazine.

“She doesn’t call him her boyfriend but she loves getting attention from John. They have fun together and it’s easy,” the source said, adding: “She only sees John when she isn’t busy with her kids. He understands that her kids are her number one priority.”

According to a source close to Affleck, the Hollywood actor is open to Garner moving on.

“Ben will always want the best for Jen. They continue to have a really strong relationship and both work very hard to make everything easy for the kids. She’s always been supportive of him,” the source said.
