Jennifer Garner Says She Can ‘See the Stress’ as Daughter Violet Tours Colleges: ‘Handling It Like a Champ’

Jennifer Garner and her daughter: On Tuesday, the Family Switch actress, 51, appeared on Live with Kelly & Mark, chatting with co-hosts Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa about how things are going as her daughter Violet, 17, is in the middle of touring colleges.

“We hear you’re about to have an adult in your household?” Consuelos says to Garner.

“I am. I’m about to have an adult,” Garner responds. “Three days. I’m three days from my eldest turning 18. Can you guys believe that?”

“Oh wow. And you’re on college tours and all that?” Ripa asks.

“Yes, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. She’s in the middle of all of that,” Garner says.

“It’s exciting,” Ripa says.

“It is exciting,” the actress affirms. “I can see the stress — even though the excitement and stress go hand in hand. But she’s handling it like a champ and she’s totally in charge. I’m not having to say, ‘Are you doing this, are you doing this?’ She’s a self-starter. And I’m just proud of her no matter what.”

Along with Violet, Garner is mom to daughter Seraphina, 13, and son Samuel, 11, with ex-husband Ben Affleck, 51.

Garner also discusses some of her kids’ extracurricular activities as Consuelos asks her about being a “sports mom and a debate mom.”

“Yeah, I’m a basketball mom but also a debate mom, which basically means batting down the hatches and saying, ‘Please don’t debate me right now. Like, just, please, please, please talk to someone else if you want to have a tussle,'” Garner says.

“Don’t you think debate is an underrated art form?” Ripa asks.

“It is incredible for building confidence, for building, just the ability to articulate an argument. I grew up in the South — I didn’t know how to have an argument until I was 40!” Garner jokes.
