Jennifer Garner Talks Family With Jimmy Fallon

According to Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck Is No Mr. Mom

Forget a 50/50 split of parenting duties in the Garner-Affleck household. During a visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, Jennifer Garner may have thrown her husband of eight years under the bus when she told the host about their roles in parenting their three kids — Violet, 8, Seraphina, 5, and Samuel, 2. Though last year Ben Affleck claimed he was taking on a Mr. Mom role while his wife worked on a few movies, Jennifer doesn't exactly see it that way, saying that the couple is "divided down a very mom/dad [line]" and if it "has to do with actually functioning . . . that's a mom thing and if it has to do with coming in just as you're getting them into bed and picking them up by their heels and swinging them around, that's a dad thing!" Watch the clip — which also includes a very funny anecdote about how the couple are teaching their son about his private parts — and tell us: is your household divided the same way?
