Jennifer Garner stepped out with her son Samuel in Santa Monica, California on Monday morning.

The 51-year-old actress was in high spirits as she walked and talked with her son Samuel on his way to school just one day before ringing in his 12th birthday.

On the same day, her ex-husband, Ben Affleck, 51, was also spotted out in Los Angeles, presumably on his way to meet up with her amid rumors that they will be working on a new movie together.

This comes after it was reported that Garner is ‘in early talks to play the female lead’ in Affleck’s next film.

The pair may be working together in an upcoming Netflix film titled Animals, which follows a mayoral candidate and his wife on a mission to rescue their kidnapped son.
