They have been a model of committed co-parenting since announcing their divorce nearly six years ago.
And Ben Affleck, 48, and Jennifer Garner, 49, continued their streak on Saturday as they joined forces to support their son Samuel, nine, during his swimming lesson in Los Angeles.
The meeting comes just two days after the Justice League star sparked rumors with his former fiancé Jennifer Lopez after he was spotted exiting an SUV that appeared to belong to the Hustlers star.

Both Ben and Jen were dressed casually and comfortably for the family outing.
Ben emphasized his strong stature in a black sweater with rolled up sleeves, while he wore an anthracite-colored T-shirt underneath.
He stuck to the muted scheme with black jeans and added a pop of color with pricey green and white Golden Goose sneakers.
As usual, he didn’t have a drink, although he seemed to have traded in his favorite Dunkin ‘iced coffee for a refreshing lemony drink.

The Gone Girl star trip with an ex comes two days after a possible reunion with another ex: Jennifer Lopez.
On Thursday, Ben was seen being picked up from Hotel Bel-Air in a white Escalade allegedly belonging to Jennifer, before returning to the hotel about 3 1/2 hours later, according to Page six.
The Argo director appears to have driven to the hotel and taken to Jennifer’s house several times, including the day before on April 28 and April 22, a day before the actress met her ex Alex Rodriguez for dinner. .

Despite the clearly mysterious nature of the meetings between the exes, a source claimed to the publications that they were just friends.
“They’re friends … they’ve never been there,” they said.
Jennifer has a history of good connections with her exes as she and ex-husband Marc Anthony have continued to co-parent their twins Emme and Max, 13,.
In fact, she and A-Rod appear to be on relatively sympathetic terms, and they will continue to maintain the business interests they entered into during their relationship, which began in 2017.

Ben’s relationship with Jennifer began in July 2002 after they worked together on the romantic comedy Gigli.
But despite the high-profile nature of the then-couple, the film was bombed at the box office and received scathing reviews, earning it the status of one of the worst films ever made.
The two became engaged in November 2002, but eventually postponed their marriage in September 2003 and separated in early 2004, reportedly due to Ben’s discomfort with the interest in their relationship.
The actor confirmed in a 2020 New York Times profile that he and Jennifer are still in a friendly relationship.
“I have regular contact with her and have a lot of respect for her,” he said, before complimenting her film Hustlers.
