Violet Affleck is the pride and joy of her actor parents, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. Her parents had kept her away from the limelight as they wanted their daughter to have a normal childhood.
She has grown up and the similarities between her mother are uncanny. Even though Violet and her mother Jennifer are 33 years apart their facial features are nearly identical and the teen is already just as tall as her mama.
The teen made headlines when she was seen spotted alongside her mother after coming back from a trip. Additionally, she is also the oldest daughter of her parents. Do you want to know about her personal life? Well, in today’s article, we will tell you everything you need to know about her including her parents’ relationship and more.
Violet is a real mommy’s girl
Violet Affleck was born on 1st December 2005 in Los Angeles, California, United States. She is the first born child of her actress mom, Jennifer Garner, and actor dad, Ben Affleck. Her full name is Violet Anne Affleck. Violet’s parents gave her the name in honor of Jennifer’s great-grandmother and shares her middle name, Anne, with her movie star mom.
According to her birthdate, she is currently 16 years old and her zodiac sign is Sagittarius. Her parents had kept her away from the media because it’s always been a top priority of the Peppermint actress to keep her kiddos grounded.
In an interview with Southern Living, Jennifer told, “It’s really important for my kids to see that everyone doesn’t have the lives they see in Los Angeles. That doesn’t reflect the world.”
“I want them to grow up with the Southern values I had — to look at people when they say hello and to stop and smell the roses. If I could do half as good a job as my mom did, I’d be pretty happy,” she added.
Violet gets along extremely well with her mother. A source previously divulged to In Touch exclusively about Jen’s relationship with her firstborn stated, “Violet [is] a real mommy’s girl. Not only does she look identical to Jen, [but] they share similar personality traits, too, like their passion for cooking.”
Violet Affleck is highly studious
As she is just 16 years old, she is currently focused on her studies and enjoying her life. Furthermore, she has always been her parents’ dream child because she’s incredibly well-behaved, highly studious, and still so loving and affectionate with Ben and Jen.
In March 2020, her father revealed about Violet on The Kelly Clarkson Show. He told, “She’s always been a very good student, and she’s been interested in Spanish, and so I would often help her. Now, all of a sudden, she’s gotten into the grade where she’s, like, in the harder Spanish classes and she’s getting better.”
“She’s right at the point where I think she might be passing me,” and Ben wasn’t about to let that occur. I was like, ‘Nope. This is not happening,’” he laughed. “I don’t mind that I can’t do your math homework when you’re 14 years old, but you are not going to be better at Spanish than me. So, I’ve decided now I gotta take classes; I gotta do something to keep up,” he added.
Her father also revealed that she goes to an all-girls school. On the other hand, her mother has always been there encouraging Violet’s academic endeavors, as well as just being each other’s best pals.
Additionally, Viole is a charming and beautiful person. She is 4’10” (147 cm) and weighs about 40 kg (88 lbs). Her body measurements are 30-25-31 inches. She has a pair of beautiful brown eyes and nice blonde hair. Moreover, she is in a growing stage of her life so the measurements might change in the future.
Violet Affleck’s parents’ love life
Violet’s parents Jennifer and Ben had met each for the first time on the set of 2001’s Pearl Harbor. The two soon fell in love with one another as costars in the 2003 comic-book movie Daredevil. Surprisingly, the actress was married to actor Scott Foley at the time. But the couple decided to get divorced after four years of marriage in March 2004.
After that, Jennifer and Ben started seeing one another. They even made their first public appearance as a couple at the Boston Red Sox’s opening World Series game. Garner revealed how she met Affleck at Parade in 2010, she said that he is “a very good writer” and wooed her with emails, explaining, “He’s a very persuasive writer.”
In January 2010, she also told Parade magazine how they fell in love. She revealed that she had visited Affleck in Vancouver while he was filming the comedy Man About Town. At the time, the two had gone for a romantic stroll together and ended up getting caught up in the rain. “Well, it helped that we were both singles at the time,” she added.
It is also revealed that Affleck had taken the initiative to propose to Garner on her 33rd birthday in April 2005. The couple decided to hold a private ceremony in the Caribbean on 29th June 2005. The wedding ceremony was officiated by Garner’s Alias costar Victor Garber. Interestingly, Garner was also expecting their first child, daughter Violet, at the time.
The reason behind the divorce of Violet’s parents
Unfortunately, they decided to end their relationship after 10 years of marriage. The couple announced their separation in June 2015. Both of them released a joint statement stating, “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”
Their divorce was finalized in October 2018 and since then they have been candid about their emotional split. Furthermore, Affleck also explained the separation on The Howard Stern Show in December 2021. He said, “The truth was, we took our time, we made a decision, we grew apart. We had a marriage that did not work. This happens. It is somebody I love and respect, but to whom I should not be married any longer. And then we said, ‘You know what? We tried. We tried because we had kids.'”
Additionally, he told host Howard Stern that he believed the former couple “would have ended up at each other’s throats” had they stayed married, noting at the time, “Both of us felt like, ‘We don’t want this to be the model that our kids see of marriage.’”
Currently, Garner has moved on and is spending lots of time with her children. She has been seeing businessman John Miller whereas Ben has rekindled his romance with his former ex Jennifer Lopez.
Does Violet Affleck have any siblings?
Violet Affleck does have two siblings named Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck and Samuel Garner Affleck. Her parents welcomed Seraphina on 6th January 2009. Later, they welcomed another child named Samuel back on 27th February 2012.
Even though Violet’s parents have separated, they haven’t had to worry about boys yet when it comes to their gorgeous teenage daughter. On 1st December 2020, Jennifer revealed to Hoda Kotb on the Today Show, “All I know is she’s on Zoom school, she goes to an all-girls school — we haven’t had to deal with that yet.” Additionally, the date was also Violet’s milestone 15th birthday, thus Jennifer revealed she was “full of all the feels today — my daughter’s birthday! It’s more than I can handle!”
Violet’s net worth and her presence on social media
As mentioned earlier, Violet is just 16 years old so she must be focusing on her studies and planning to choose a career. Thus, she doesn’t own any net worth. However, her father Ben has an estimated net worth of $150 million and her mother Jennifer has an estimated net worth of $80 million.

Her most recent appearance in public was on Saturday, 1st January 2022 after a holiday gateway with her siblings Seraphina and Samuel. She was spotted unloading the car, carrying and moving various duffle bags which they took on vacation alongside her mother.
She was spotted wearing a pair of skinny blue jeans along with a gray sweater featuring a rainbow design across the front sleeves. Finishing her look with a lilac-colored beanie, black sneakers, and her signature glasses. She also wore a black face mask to be safe from COVID-19.
Her mother on the other hand echoed a similar style. She wore a distressed pair of denim bottoms from brand Mother. She went with a navy blue turtleneck that included white and baby blue details while staying cozy in a sweater. Finishing her looks with a gold necklace, bold black glasses, and cozy-looking fur-lined black boots. While she stepped out of the driver’s seat of a family-style SUV, the mom-of-three appeared to be rocking a perfect blowout with her smoothed-out brown locks.
