Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner head to Paris for family trip

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner continue to put their children first as following their breakup last summer. The estranged couple headed to Paris this week with their son and two daughters in tow for a family getaway.

The family have been in London where Ben, 43, is shooting his new action film Justice League, but on Thursday the group hopped across the Channel to France.

The ex couple were spotted taking their children to Amorino, the famed ice cream shop. Ben was pictured scooping his four-year-old son Samuel into his arms while the rest of the group tucked into their desserts.

On Friday, Jennifer took the kids for a day of sightseeing, People reports. The Daredevil star and her three children went on a tour of the main attractions, including the Place de L'Opéra and the Ferris Wheel.

They then headed to the Jardin du Luxembourg where Samuel, ten-year-old Violet and seven-year-old Seraphina played with sailboats in the fountains.

The northern quarter of Montmartre, famous for the towering Sacré-Cœur, was also on the list of sights. Jennifer took selfies with her daughters, before helping a slightly tired Seraphina with the last flight of steps to the top of the hill.

While fans may have been speculating whether Jennifer and Ben are reconciling, a source told People that family holidays like these are the norm. The group especially get together when Ben is filming abroad.

Speaking about the trip to Europe, a family friend said: "They are so excited for this opportunity for the kids. He is shooting over there and they will likely come back and forth. He similarly brought the kids to the set during Miracles From Heaven. This is normal for them."

Earlier in the week Ben, Jennifer and the three children were spotted visiting the Harry Potter studios in London. "They are enjoying showing the kids London," a source told People.

Last month Ben made an appearance on CBS This Morning, in which he spoke about his and his estranged wife's priorities.

"We're doing our very best and we're putting our kids first and that's how we're focusing on our day-to-day lives," said the actor. "We don't know what the future's going to hold, but each step that we take is one where we prioritise our children and everything else comes second."
