Violet Affleck made a grand entrance with mom Jennifer Garner at the White House on December 1, and she looked all grown up. The duo attended the state dinner hosted by President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden in honor of French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron. Thursday was also Violet’s 17th birthday and in the photos Garner is beaming at her oldest. Check out the photos from Violet and Garner’s night out in DC.
Garner shares Violet and her siblings Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, with ex-husband Ben Affleck. The trio also have two step-siblings thanks to father Ben’s marriage to Jennifer Lopez, twins Emme and Maximilian, 14. Violet and her siblings attended Ben and Lopez’s lavish August wedding in Georgia. After Thanksgiving, Ben was spotted with Violet, Seraphina, Emma, and Max at the Beverly Hills Farmers’ Market.
Garner and Ben are both fairly private about their children’s lives. Garner is very active on Instagram, but she rarely shares photos of them or updates about them and their activities. Garner also tends to keep her lips shut about her love life, but she’s reportedly been dating businessman John Miller since 2018.
Other celebrities at Thursday night’s dinner included Stephen Colbert, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, Ariana DeBose, Anna Wintour and Julia Louis-Dreyfus and their son Charlie Hall, who appears in the new season of The Sex Lives of College Girls.
Earlier this year, Garner starred alongside her 13 Going on 30 co-stars Mark Ruffalo and Ryan Reynolds on Netflix’s The Adam Project. She’s also been busy filming her new series The Last Thing He Told Me for Apple TV+. The show, based on the novel of the same name and produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine, also features Spider-Man: Far From Home actress Angourie Rice, Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Aisha Tyler to see.
