Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are easily one of my favourite couples. Although snarky sites out there have their theories about this marriage (and every other Hollywood marriage), the image they put out to the public is solid, authentic and loving.

In promoting her latest flick, Draft Day, on Good Morning America, Jennifer, 41, got to talking about her family and the innovative ways in which she keeps Ben in their kids' lives while he's working abroad for long periods of time.

“You can’t go for too long without being together as a unit," Jennifer says, adding that "Facetime is a must."

"I make pyjamas for the kids with Ben’s face on it that they sleep in," she continues, "I put his voice in things…, like there’s a teddy bear you can get where you can put the voice in the paw." Wow, who knew there was such a thing?

Jen and Ben are parents to Violet, 8, Seraphina, 5, Samuel, 2. Look out for Draft Day, in theatres now. Jennifer costars with Kevin Costner in the flick—and she says it's been super exciting working with the ultimate sports-movie star!
