Her ex Ben Affleck was recently spotted touring multi-million dollar homes in Los Angeles with his revived flame Jennifer Lopez.

Garner had a big smile on her face as she gave 12-year-old daughter Seraphina and nine-year-old son Samuel a grand tour of the property.

Being among all the dirt and sawdust, the Alias ​​star kept it casual in black sweatpants and a gray t-shirt with “hug a farmer” written on it.

She also donned a pair of black sneakers and wore her dark brown locks long.

Seraphina sauntered beside her mom and little brother in charcoal gray leggings and a black retro Boston Bruins Bobby Orr t-shirt, likely a tribute to her father Ben and his hometown hockey team.

The Alias ​​alum makes pit stops to the property over the course of more than a year for personal updates on the status of the construction.

Garner and the children previously lived in a whopping 16,000-square-foot home on a 3.1-acre lot in nearby Pacific Palisades when she was still married to Ben Affleck.

After their split, which they announced in 2015, they sold the property to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and his wife Behati Prinsloo for a reported $32 million.
