Ben Affleck spent his Saturday having a blast with his stepdaughter Emme in Santa Monica.
The Gone Girl actor, 51, and the 15-year-old budding star made their way around the city to shop and grab some food as they sported smiles on their faces the entire time.
Emme is one of the twins that actress and singer Jennifer Lopez, 53, had with her former husband, Marc Anthony. Her brother Max was absent from the outing with Ben.
The On the Floor songstress recently rekindled her long-time romance with the Good Will Hunting actor, and the pair tied the knot back in July 2022.
Affleck and Emme both donned comfortable and warm looks for their stepfather-stepdaughter day out.

The Air director sported a black bomber jacket over a black hoodie and a white t-shirt underneath.
He kept extra hidden from the sun in a pair of grey jeans and black and white high-top sneakers.
The actor spent his time making Emme laugh as he moved his arms around and donned a funny face as she laughed beside him.
Emme, who has worked beside her A-list mom before, looked cozy in an oversized white hoodie and a pair of loose-fitting jeans.
She amped up her look with a pair of white Converse sneakers, which looked like they had been drawn on with several different colored markers.
The aspiring performer wore her hair cut short and in tight curls around her face, which she kept makeup free.
In her ears she had a pair of wired headphones connected to the phone in her hand, yet she seemed fully attuned to the jokes Ben was making.
The duo went to a used store book store first before heading to a thrift store, and they finished up their outing with a meal at Jack in the Box.

During their day, both Ben and Emme acquired large paper bags, presumably filled with the things they picked up.
Before marrying J-Lo, Ben was previously married to 13 Going on 30 actress Jennifer Garner from 2005 until 2018.
The two A-list actors share three kids, Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 11.
Since rekindling his romance with J-Lo, 20 years after they were originally engaged, but broke it off just before their wedding in 2003, the pair have worked on blending their new family.
While appearing for an interview on TODAY in January, she spoke about the process of integrating five children under one roof.
‘We moved in together. The kids moved in together,’ Lopez said. ‘It’s been, like, a really kind of emotional transition, but at the same time, all your dreams coming true.’
They met on the set of the box office flop Gigli, where the two played gangsters who fall in love while attempting to kidnap a neurodivergent man.
Ben and Jen had yet to be burned by their looming box office failure when they reunited in 2002 to film Jersey Girl, which was released two years later.

He played a widower in the 2004 rom-com, while she had a supporting role as his character’s late wife. The movie marked the start of the A-list couple’s tumultuous romance.
After postponing their impending nuptials due to ‘excessive media attention,’ the couple stayed together for a few more months before confirming their split in a statement released in early 2004.
The then-former couple both entered long-term relationships with other stars, the Waiting for Tonight singer marrying Marc Anthony and then getting engaged to former MLB player Alex Rodriguez.
Jennifer and Ben, more fondly known as ‘Bennifer,’ reignited their romance in May 2021 and tied the knot officially that following summer.
