Ben Affleck took his youngest daughter, Seraphina, out for breakfast at the Brentwood Country Mart this morning. He's been handling dad duty while Jennifer Garner travels between the Dallas Buyer's Club set in New Orleans and their home in California. The family still finds time to meet up, though, and were all together to celebrate Violet's seventh birthday over the weekend. Ben, Jen, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel make up just one of our favorite celebrity families of 2012 — make sure to vote on your pick!
Ben's mixing home life with the recent success of his latest movie, Argo, which was a big hit both at the box office and amongst critics. Things are about to get even busier for Ben with award season right around the corner, but before he hits the red carpet, he took time to support his Eastern Congo Initiative organization. Ben traveled to the Democratic Republic of Congo to connect the owner of Seattle's Theo Chocolate with local cocoa bean harvesters.
