‘What I hope to cultivate with our family is that his kids have a new ally in me and my kids have a new ally in him, someone who really loves and cares about them but can have a different perspective and help me see things that I can’t see with my kids because I’m so emotionally tied up.’

‘He’s an amazing dad,’ she said. ‘It brings tears to my eyes. He is honestly the best dad I’ve ever seen. He’s so involved, he teaches me about how to interact with the kids sometimes.’
Lopez called Affleck the type of father anybody would ask for – a ‘present, loving dad who cares.’
‘He’s just so in tune, he’s such a brilliant guy anyway, like he’s so learned in so many things, and you can just tell when he’s had his kids, he read every book and everything you could possibly learn about children, and he applies it and is present and that’s all you can ask for, is a present, loving dad who cares and who shows up every single day, and that’s who he is.’
