Affleck pays tribute to wife in Mother's Day video
Actor Ben Affleck made a Mother’s Day video, paying tribute to all mothers around the world especially those in his life.
"I want to say Happy Mother's Day to all the mums in my life - my mum, Chris, and my amazing wife, Jennifer, who is an incredible, spectacular, world-class mum, and I want to thank her."
The Gone Baby Gone director also wished the mothers he met in the Democratic Republic of Congo in the video he posted on his Facebook page.
The video was shot during the star's recent trip to the Central African country, where he founded the Eastern Congo initiative (ECI) in 2010. (ECI is a non-profit US based advocacy and grant-making initiative wholly focused on working with and for the people of eastern Congo).
“And I want to say Happy Mother's Day to all the moms I've met in the Democratic Republic of Congo who are on this video that I hope you watch. I urge you to share it, to post it to Facebook, to celebrate all the moms in the world, including the ones in your life, as well as those out there in the world working at the very hardest job there is every single day."
Affleck, 39, and Garner, 40 have three children together; Violet, six, Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, three, and Samuel Garner, two and a half months old.
