Ben Affleck's ten-year-old son, Samuel Garner Affleck, had a mishap during his trip to Los Angeles's luxury car rental shop, 777 Exotics, with his dad and Jennifer Lopez.

While looking at different cars, Ben allowed Samuel to jump in the front seat of an expensive yellow Lamborghini. Within a short while, the vehicle crashed into a white BMW parked behind it.

It seemed that the engine of the Lambo was left running, and Samuel placed the gear in reverse. The young boy immediately jumped out of the vehicle and inspected the back for any damages. Ben's representative said there was no damage and no one was hurt.

BEN AFFLECK'S SON THROUGH THE YEARS

Born in 2012, Samuel is the third son of the "Justice League" star and his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. The couple confirmed their pregnancy in August 2011 without disclosing the baby's gender. Garner said of her husband at the time:

“He knows when to swoop in with the gesture. He's sweet that way. Honestly, I would do anything for that man because I know it's not taken for granted.”

In February 2012, the couple welcomed Samuel in Santa Monica, California. He completed their family with two daughters, Seraphina and Violet.

Although no longer together, Ben and Jennifer successfully co-parent their little boy as the actor remains committed as a father. Previously, Ben supported Samuel during his Saturday baseball game and even wore his son's Little League team blue jersey and cap. Speaking about his son, Ben said:

“It’s one of those things you love it so much. It’s like the dad dream [...]. I’m a coach on the Little League team and it’s going great. He’s awesome. It’s a lot of fun. The kids are great kids. I do have to wear a Dodgers hat [...].”

The "Triple Frontier" star went as far as cutting his Asia film promotion short to be back in Los Angeles with Samuel. "I was like, 'I have to come back a day early,'" he said. "It was like, 'What's the [reason]?' And I was like, 'My son's Little League game? I'm the coach."

Ben credits his ex-wife for helping him raise their kids well, primarily when his alcohol issues occurred. Jennifer supported the actor through tough times and always made co-parenting possible.

The couple divorced shortly after, although Jennifer later revealed they had already been separated for months before the nanny issue happened.

WHAT ARE SAMUEL AFFLECK'S PARENTS UP TO NOW?

Ben and Jennifer met in 2000 on the set of "Pearl Harbor," but it wasn't until two years later that they fell in love while filming "Daredevil." However, they remained in relationships with other people until 2004. The pair made their debut as a couple in October of the same year.

It took less than a year for Ben to propose on Jennifer's 33rd birthday, and two months later, they tied the knot in a private ceremony officiated by Victor Garber.

On December 1, 2005, the couple welcomed their first child, Violet. Seraphina Rose was born four years later in January 2009, followed by Samuel in 2012. Unfortunately, their relationship took a turn in 2015 after Ben had an alleged relationship with the family's nanny.

The couple divorced shortly after, although Jennifer later revealed they had already been separated for months before the nanny issue happened. "She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce," the actress said. "She was not a part of the equation."

After their split, Ben focused on treating his alcohol addiction and entered a treatment center. He later revealed that his divorce from the "13 Going on 30" star was his "biggest regret."

Although Ben had relationships, including his rekindling with Lopez, Ben and Jennifer remain committed to raising their kids well.
