Yahoo Celebrity

While working the red carpet on Tuesday night for the premiere of his new film, "To The Wonder," Ben Affleck joked with reporters that he's gearing up for his biggest role yet ... daddy duty!

The 40-year-old Oscar winner explained that while his wife Jennifer Garner focuses on her career this summer, he will be responsible for holding down the fort. "She told me to go to the gym. I'm preparing myself," he teased at the premiere hosted by Fiji Water. "I'm going to take on some more of the burden. There's going to be a little Mr. Mom action and I'm going to get back in the ring."

Fortunately, the adorable Hollywood couple seems to have the parental juggling act down pact. Garner recently opened up to The Telegraph about how she and her handsome hubby balance work and caring for their three adorable children -- Violet, 7, Seraphina 4, and Samuel, 13 months. She said, "I definitely work less because Ben is so busy, but we have three kids. That's just part of the deal. I want to be a mom ... That's just what makes sense for our family."
