Jennifer Garner is celebrating a major milestone in her daughter Violet Affleck’s life.

Garner shares Violet, 18, as well as Seraphina, 15, and Samuel, 12, with ex-husband Ben Affleck.

It is unclear if Affleck, 51, attended his eldest child’s ceremony amid his marriage “issues” with wife Jennifer Lopez, whose Los Angeles premiere for her Netflix sci-fi thriller, Atlas, was held Monday evening.

“They started having issues a few months ago as Jen had started ramping up work commitments and prepping for her tour,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly earlier this month. “Jen is very focused on work. They are on two completely different pages most of the time.”

Despite a second insider telling Us that the couple is currently living apart and that Affleck moved out of the home he shares with Lopez “several weeks ago,” the pair have been seen out and about together twice in the last week after it was reported that they hadn’t been photographed together in 47 days.

In Touch obtained photos of the duo out in L.A. on Thursday, May 16. In the pictures, Affleck could be seen behind the wheel of a black SUV with a solemn look on his face, while Lopez waited for him to open the passenger door.
