Ben Affleck fatherhood: he hates being a stay-at-home- father
Ben Affleck wants to have as many kids as he can, but he hates being a stay-at-home father. The 40-year-old actor opened up about fatherhood and more in one interview for Details’ October issue.
“I don’t want to be a stay-at-home dad. Work is very important to me. I like to work. But I need my work to mean something to me in order for me to not be home with them”, he said.
The actor also talks about always wanting to spend more time with her family. “Anytime you think, ‘I’m wasting my time here’, the first thought you have is, ‘I could go home and be with my kids’. Now, you may go home and be with your kids and very quickly start thinking, ‘I wonder what’s on the work front?’” he said.
Ben has three children with 40-year-old wife Jennifer Garner: daughters Violet, 6½, Seraphina, 3½, and son Samuel, 6 month.
Ben also admitted that his wife is very patient with the kids. “She does everything”, Ben admitted.
