Is Jennifer Garner Close To Ben Affleck’s Mom?

Ben Affleck’s mother, Christopher Anne Boldt, recently made headlines when she fell at her son’s Georgia estate the day before his big wedding to Jennifer Lopez. While the fall was not serious, the Daily Mail reported, Boldt cut her leg on the dock when she fell. Boldt was later photographed being discharged from the hospital the same day, and Bennifer’s wedding celebrations went smoothly. Still, some conspiracy theorists perked up and they immediately hopped onto Twitter to share their thoughts. “Something tells me Ben Affleck’s family tried everything [sic] to stop the second marriage. There were ambulance back2back injuries. Mom fell. She’s vocal about all the frivolous attention Jlo brings when Ben is doing so much to make the world a better place,” speculated one user. Hmm… isn’t that funny?

But what about Ben Affleck’s first wife, Jennifer Garner? How did Affleck’s mom feel about her? And are they still around today? The answer might surprise you.

It looked like Ben had a nice, low key Father’s Day at home with his family,” a source told the Daily Mail of the pleasant exchange.

Ben Affleck’s mother reportedly asked Jennifer Garner to call off the divorce

However, some claim that Jennifer Garner and her former mother-in-law didn’t always see eye-to-eye.

In 2016, the Daily Mail reported that Christopher Anne Boldt asked Garner to call off his divorce from her son, Ben Affleck. “She’s so scared that without the family grounding him, Ben will go off the rails,” a source revealed. To make matters worse, it was also rumored that Boldt wasn’t exactly thrilled about Affleck’s reunion with Jennifer Lopez. “A number of Ben’s friends and family, including his mother, are worried about Jennifer [Lopez] far too controlling, he rushed to the altar, and it could all end in tears. Chris is [a] tough, highly intelligent lady who adored Jennifer Garner and was devastated when this ended. They’re still very close, so it’s not a huge shock that she’s dreading J.Lo.” Another source told Globe Magazine (via Epic Stream). whoops Hopefully, Lopez doesn’t find herself in the middle of another “monster-in-law” situation.
