    She shares her three children with her ex-husband Ben Affleck.

    But Jennifer was taking charge of the kids on Wednesday when she shuttled her youngest, nine-year-old Samuel, to a playdate in Santa Monica, California.

    The 49-year-old actress looked relaxed and cozy in a fuzzy baby blue sweater as she picked her son up from school before heading to the beach to meet his friends.

    Jennifer’s sweater appeared to have been hand-knitted, as it had gaps in the sleeves just below her shoulders.

    She wore a white T-shirt underneath the top and paired it with complementary gray–blue and white striped pants with a white drawstring. 

    The 5ft8in beauty kept things breezy with a set of wavy brown sandals, and she wore her brunette locks tied back in a low-slung ponytail.

    She blocked out the brightness with black sunglasses and carried along a mask, though she opted not to wear it while she was outside.

    Samuel wore a gray shirt and matching sweatpants as he left the school, though he changed into a long-sleeve navy shirt and blue tie-dye shorts once they arrived at the beach.

    His mother appeared to be whispering something in his ear while holding him close, though he rushed away to play as soon as she was finished. 

    While Samuel was off on his own, Jennifer socialized with some of the other parents at the beach and enjoyed some sweet treats. 

    A stand nearby advertised ‘All Natural Popsicles,’ so the Alias star picked up a fruity red variety to cool down with.

    Missing from the beach outing were Jennifer’s two other children, her mini-me eldest Violet, 15, and her middle daughter Seraphina, 12.

    The Love, Simon actress’ outing comes amid her ex-husband Ben Affleck’s renewed romance with his former fiancée Jennifer Lopez.

    Last month, the on-again couple were spotted on week-long trips to snowy Montana — where Ben owns a chalet — and to the Out Of Sight actress’ home turf of Miami, where she spends most of her time with her 13-year-old twins Emme and Max.

    Prior to that, the lovebirds were more secretive with their rendezvous, as Ben would drive himself to a hotel where he was picked up by Jennifer’s SUV and ferried to her home in Los Angeles.

    A source recently told People that the pair are ‘slowly starting to talk about the future,’ while continuing to ‘travel back and forth between Los Angeles and Miami’ to renew their relationship.

    ‘They are very happy together,’ the insider continued, adding that the connection between the two ‘is not a casual relationship.’

    ‘They are taking it seriously and want it to be long-lasting.’  

    Rekindled romance: Jennifer's ex-husband Ben Affleck has recently reunited with his former fiancée Jennifer Lopez, whom he got engaged to in the early 2000s

    The actors first met in 2001 on the set of their box-office bomb Gigli, and they made their relationship official the following year, shortly after Jennifer divorced her second husband.

    They got engaged later in 2002 and scheduled their wedding for September 2003 but called it off with only a few days notice.

    Ben and Jennifer then split in early 2004, but reportedly remained friends afterward, which may have helped them get close again.

    Later, Ben and Jennifer Garner married in 2005, before separating a decade later amid his ongoing struggles with addiction.
