"The kids are their number one priority, and they're both amazing, hands-on parents," a source told Closer Weekly. "They're getting a lot better these days and are in a great place, which makes coparenting so much easier."

The source added that Affleck and Garner, who met in the summer of 2001 and got married in June 2005, even go to each other's houses and catch up over coffee.

BIGGEST REGRET

In a recent interview with The New York Times, the "Justice League" actor talked about separating with Garner, who gained recognition for her performance as CIA officer Sydney Bristow in the hit film "Alias." He said:

"The biggest regret of my life is this divorce. Shame is really toxic. There is no positive byproduct of shame."

Affleck added that without a doubt he had committed mistakes, yet he needed to pick himself up, learn from his mistakes, and try to move forward.
