Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were together on Saturday for the first time since her revealing interview, in which she divulged she knew Ben Affleck cheated on her with nanny Christine Ouzounian--but that the nanny wasn't the cause of their divorce.

“Let me just tell you something. We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny. She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation," Garner said in a recent interview. "Bad judgment? Yes. It’s not great for your kids for [a nanny] to disappear from their lives.”

Jennifer Garner admitted she's "had to have conversations," with the couple's three children, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel, "about the meaning of ‘scandal.'"

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck presented a united front at their son Samuel's fourth birthday party. The party theme was "superheroes," and Ben Affleck stepped up to the plate to bring the theme to life. Affleck dressed up as Batman for the festivities.

"He wanted a superhero birthday party and he wanted superheroes there, and I was like, 'Alright, what heroes do you want?' He's ticking off heroes and he was like, 'I want you to do Batman...real Batman!'" Ben Affleck said while chatting with Jimmy Kimmel during his post-Oscars special on Sunday night.

Ben Affleck allegedly brought a "gift" to Jimmy Kimmel prior to that interview, when he smuggled Matt Damon onto the show.

Both Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck attended the Oscars--however they didn't attend together.

Despite the scandal that has rocked their lives, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner truly seem to put their children's well-being ahead of all else.

Kudos to Ben Affleck for swallowing his pride and dressing up like Batman for son Samuel's fourth birthday. That is no doubt something their little boy will never forget.
