Ben Affleck was on dad duty in Los Angeles on Monday as he was seen with his 10-year-old son Samuel.
The 50-year-old Oscar-winning Argo director took his only boy to a Big 5 Sporting Goods store as they purchased two basketballs and a bag of goodies. 
This comes after his wife Jennifer Lopez talked openly about her first Christmas with her new husband Ben and their ‘newly blended family.’
Daddy Ben: Ben Affleck was on dad duty in Los Angeles on Monday as he was seen with his 10-year-old son Samuel
The 53-year-old On The Floor crooner has two kids with ex-husband Marc Anthony – they are 14-year-old twins Max and Emme.
And Affleck has three children with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner – they are Samuel as well as daughters Violet, 17, and Seraphina, 13.
On his Monday outing Ben looked to be nicely style by JLo as he had on an expensive casual look.
In the past he stepped out in old T-shirt and flannel jackets, but these days he is wearing a higher class of clothing.

Affleck had on a light gray cashmere zip-up cardigan with pockets over a black shirt that was over a white shirt.
The Good Will Hunting actor added light gray slacks with a crease up the leg, and finished off his look with powder blue Nike sneakers with a maroon swoosh that had different laces: one shoe had a blue lace, the other had a white lace.
Samuel was more dressed down in a T-shirt that said Daredevil – which is the 2003 movie Affleck made with Garner – with black slacks and white-and-black sneakers with matching white laces.
When they left the store, Samuel was holding two basketballs and Ben had in his hand a stuffed plastic back from Big 5.

Big 5 Sporting Goods is a sporting goods retailer headquartered in El Segundo, California with stores sprinkled throughout the west coast and south. 
A week ago his wife Lopez was gushing over their first Christmas as a married couple after they wed in August. 
In a newsletter shared with her fans, the actress revealed she spent the holiday ‘hunkered down at home’ with her new spouse, her twins, and his three children from his first marriage, joking it was ‘double the people and triple the chaos.’
Lopez also shared that her family joined her for a festive taco night after being forced to put their tradition on ice during the Covid pandemic. 
Glamorous: Lopez, 53, offered fans insight into her first Christmas with her husband Affleck since they tied the knot earlier this year
Hilarious: She added: ‘We have blended families, doubled the people, doubled the fun, doubled the love, doubled the presents and tripled the chaos!’
Memories: Jennifer also shared snaps that she had taken over the holiday weekend, including tasty treats and another view of her hummingbird tree 
Writing in her newsletter, Jennifer shared her joy and explained she themed the festivities around hummingbirds which she sees as a symbol of love.
She wrote: ‘I like to create a theme for every holiday. I wrote a song called Hummingbird for my new album, This Is Me Now. 
‘To me, hummingbirds are messengers of love. They’re very agile – can fly forward, backward, and up and down. 
‘They’re also the fastest bird but they always have time to stop, eat something sweet and smell the roses. I identify with them, but more than anything, whenever I see one, I feel like it’s a sign from God that everything is going to be OK.
‘So, I decided this year that the hummingbird would be a perfect theme.’
Family time: In a newsletter shared with her fans, the actress, 53, revealed she spent the holiday ‘hunkered down at home’ with her new spouse, her twins, and his three children
Jennifer then went onto reveal that she and Ben celebrated Christmas with their blended family.
She added: ‘We have blended families, doubled the people, doubled the fun, doubled the love, doubled the presents and tripled the chaos!’
Jennifer decorated her tree with a hummingbird theme and even wore the bird’s colours for her Christmas party.
She explained: ‘I wanted to have a tree in the house that was a hummingbird tree, reminding us that everything done in love and with love will always be OK.
She had fun on New Year’s Eve too: The siren wore a plunging red dress for her NYE celebrations at home with Ben
‘I also picked hummingbird colours for my holiday party dress this year.
‘It’s a Gucci dress that I’ve had in my closet which I bought a year ago and I’ve been waiting for the perfect occasion to wear. I thought it was perfect for our Hummingbird Christmas Party.’
Revealing how she and Ben celebrated the holiday season, the star revealed that her family came together for a taco night. 
She added: ‘For the past 8 years we’ve been doing a Christmas Edition Taco Tuesday, where we get together and dress up and sing Christmas carols. 
‘During the pandemic that went to the wayside, so this was the first time in a long time we were able to get together with people that we haven’t seen in forever. 
‘The party was filled with family, friends, colleagues, and people we’ve known from over the years. We sang and danced and had the most amazing time!’
