Jennifer Garner’s Dance Class Cuties

Jennifer Garner's Dance Class Cuties

Another busy weekend for Jen and her girls!

Alias alum Jennifer Garner took her daughters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3, to ballet class in Santa Monica, Calif. on Saturday (February 18). The day before, we saw the hands-on mama taking her girls to karate class.

Last weekend, we saw the Garner-Affleck girls at ballet, karate, a birthday party, and the spa for some mani-pedis.

We hope Jen gets some time to put her feet up for a little R&R as well!

The 39-year-old actress and her husband Ben Affleck are expecting their third child – rumored to be a boy – in the spring.

    Ben’s beautiful girls! A woman who loves and takes care of her own children, never a nanny in sight.

      She’s stated that she has help from a nanny. It’s not a secret. That said, there is nothing wrong with having a nanny.

        As someone who uses a nanny myself (when I am at work), thanks!

        At least Jen is a hands on, involved mom when she is with her girls and doesn’t bring her nanny on every outing to do the grunt work in fear of breaking a nail — unlike another celeb who is always featured here.

    I love Jen trust me but she has a nanny with her a lot of the time, she even talks about her nanny in interviews. You are shown a couple of photos from a set of many, the nanny is in a lot of photos and not pictured in the published one.

      In her business, I can’t imagine that it would be easy to be WITHOUT a nanny. I mean, it’s not a 9-to-5 job so I’m sure business related things come up all the time throughout the day and you MUST have someone on hand at all times to take over the kids for a spell.

          What is wrong with you? Of course her job is important…. to her. What do firemen and paramedics have to do with it?

          And she may be called to discuss a project or have a phone interview with a magazine. Who knows? The point is that I’m sure many unscheduled things relating to her job happen every day.

            Aha, and now I think we are starting to see the real reason behind the constant anti-nanny comments on this site – the sexist idea that a woman’s job is not important, and the only thing a woman should be doing with her life is staying home with the children. It’s a gross, antiquated idea, but at least we know the truth about the attitudes being perpetrated here.

            Re: “anti-nanny” comments —

            Comments castigating Garner and raking her over the coals for employing a nanny are probably from 1 or 2 posters who say the same thing over and over again and probably have a problem with her rather than the use of nannies in general. Since she is usually pictured with her girls – WITHOUT the nanny – Garner is a sharp contrast to someone like Gwen Stefani who clearly uses the nannies 24/7 and seems helpless without them.

            I think you’re on to something there, but sometimes I actually think it’s more to do with jealousy.

            A lot of women I know get overwhelmed with the physical demands of raising kids (whether or not they work outside the home). There’s nothing wrong with that, it happens to most of us.

            For someone to have nannies to help them out on a 24-hour basis is infuriating to some people because they will never have that luxury (or claim not to want it).

            If you can be supermom and do it all alone, more power to you. If you have live-in help and decide that you’re all in this child-raising thing together, more power to you too.

            This is also a very good point. And I don’t doubt for a second that the people who criticize celebs for having nannies would hire one in a heartbeat if they could afford it. Easy to claim you wouldn’t if you don’t actually have the means to make the choice in the first place.

    She sure isn’t very intelligent.. carrying those heavy kids all over being that huge. She’s no spring chicken either. I’m sure she would be advised against doing that by a doctor like all pregnant women are at her late stage. She’s always been a dim bulb.

      The dim bulb appears to be you. And let’s throw in rude and narrow minded. What she does with her children is her business. Not yours or mine. I was also an older mother with children close together in age. My father is a pediatrician and had no problem with me carrying my first child late in pregnancy. Pregnancy is not an illness. As long as she is not having problems with her pregnancy, I think it is up to her to decide whether to carry her child or not. She may have picked her up because of a parking lot or the fact that there were a lot of photographers around.

    I personally work as a nanny and I think maybe some people have a misconstrued idea of what a nanny is. My job is basically to be a daily babysitter while the parents are at work. It is to spare the children from having to go to a daycare, (not that there is anything wrong with that option). Their parents are still completely hands-on and totally raise their kids. I consider myself a part of the family because I have been with them so long but its more like I am a big sister, not their mother. Sometimes I’ll clean, start dinner, help with homework, etc but their mom and dad will also do the exact same things when they can. I’m just an extra pair of hands for a busy couple. I’m not a replacement parent.

      Thank you for some actual, real-life perspective. So many people just like to bash and criticize who have no clue what they are talking about. Of course truth and facts don’t mean anything to those people, so it probably won’t do much good.
