Exes Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are getting along. The two spent the day with their kids on Halloween, beginning with a family meal at Huckleberry in Santa Monica. They were later spotted out trick-or-treating in Malibu with Affleck's new girlfriend Jennifer Lopez (opens in new tab) and her kids.

"Everyone gets along and the focus is always on the kids," a source tells People (opens in new tab). "Jennifer, Ben and Jen Garner all wanted the kids to have an amazing Halloween. The kids are friends and wanted to go trick-or-treating together. It made sense that they all went together."

Lopez and Affleck have been spending a lot of time apart (opens in new tab) recently because of their busy work schedules, but are meeting up when they can (opens in new tab). "Ben is working today [Nov. 1] again, so they wanted to enjoy a family weekend," the source added.

The couple spends a lot of quality time with some or all of their respective kids: Affleck's three children with Garner and Lopez' two children with Marc Anthony (opens in new tab). They have previously been spotted enjoying restaurant dinners (opens in new tab) together, and hitting up The Magic Castle (opens in new tab) in LA, as well as various other family-friendly venues (opens in new tab).

Jennifer Garner has been dating businessman John Miller since 2018, per Us Weekly (opens in new tab), and when she's not filming various movies and TV shows (opens in new tab), she spends time being extremely wholesome at farmers' markets (opens in new tab) and on her Instagram page (opens in new tab).

TBH, it looks like Garner, Affleck and Lopez have this whole blended family thing down to a T. Good for them.
