    Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are reportedly in the process of finalizing their divorce. Still, the actress had nice things to say about the Cambridge native last weekend.

    Garner posted a sepia-toned photo of Affleck on Instagram and extolled his virtues as a father.

    “Our kids are lucky to have a dad who looks at them the way you look at them and loves them the way you love them, @benaffleck,” Garner wrote in the Father’s Day post, adding the hashtags #happyfathersday, #threeluckykids, and #haveagreatday.


    Affleck reportedly purchased a $19.25 million Los Angeles home in April that’s less than a mile from Garner’s residence.
