Ben Affleck and his wife, Jennifer Garner, welcomed their third child, and first son, this year. Samuel was born in February, and Ben spent lots of time close to home with Jen, Seraphina, and Violet around his arrival.
Ben also made time for his philanthropic and film passions. He directed and starred in the upcoming Argo, which is based on the 1979 Iran hostage crisis and marks his first big-screen project since 2010's The Town. He also paid a trip to Africa with his Eastern Congo Initiative, writing about the experience on Facebook, and visited Washington DC to raise awareness about the child mortality rate in that country.
