MEANING OF SERAPHINA ROSE ELIZABETH AFFLECK'S NAME

Seven days after her birth, Affleck and Garner announced the name they chose for their second daughter. Linda from NameBerry says that the name the then-couple chose was an appealing one that has not appeared on the top 1000 list in the past couple of decades.

"Seraphina" is derived from the Hebrew word Seraphim, the name of a cast of the most powerful winged angels in heaven. It has also been a Saint's name in the past. According to Linda, the name is "feminine, elegant, rhythmic and spirited."

The only current trend Affleck and Garner followed while picking names were the two middle names they gave her, and Linda guessed it must have family ties.

SERAFINA'S PARENTS ARE FAMOUS

Seraphina's parents are actor Ben Affleck and actress Jennifer Garner. They met while filming "Pearl Harbor," a movie that flopped so bad that most people only remember it as the foundation of the two star's relationship.

When they met, Garner was still married to Scott Foley, and Affleck fell in love with Jennifer Lopez while filming "Gigli." They started dating, but life brought Garner back into the actor's life in 2002 when they had to work on "Daredevil" together.

During the filming, they chose to remain with their respective partners; however, according to Affleck, they fell in love on that set. Then, in 2003, they both appeared on "Dinner For Five," where Garner openly flirted with him. Affleck was already engaged to Lopez at the time, so he did not heed what Garner was doing.

Two months later, Garner announced her separation from Foley, who blamed it on stardom. In May 2003, Garner filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences; then, in 2004, Affleck and Lopez called off their engagement. The year flew by, and as it tapered to an end, Affleck and Garner made their first public appearance together.

It quickly happened more frequently, and by April 2005, Affleck proposed to Garner with a 4.5-carat ring. They welcomed their first child, Violet, in December of that year then her sister followed in 2009.

Their relationship seemed perfect in the following years; however, in 2015, they shocked the world by announcing their separation. The revelation came three days after Christine Ouzounian; their nanny shared a picture that captured her wearing his four rings.

SERAPHINA IS FRIENDS WITH JENNIFER LOPEZ'S DAUGHTER

With Lopez back in Affleck's life, his daughter Seraphina will have a much closer relationship with her, but that won't be a problem. Not only are things good between them, but Seraphina is also great friends with Lopez's child Emme Anthony. The pair have been spotted wearing the same clothes, and their hairstyles are practically the same.

The similarity in their age has drawn them closer to one another, but that's not all they have in common. Both Emme and Seraphina have identified as non-binary and use they/them pronouns.

Lopez is supportive of her kid's choice and has always supported it. Fans are glad her kid is getting along great with Affleck's because the alternative is a threat to the Bennifer ship movie fans are supporting.
