With ladies like Heidi Klum and Katie Holmes running around with little ones, one of Hollywood’s biggest trends these days is being a hot mom. Well, we think Jennifer Garner qualifies for that category so we thought we’d look into how Jennifer got to where she is today.

We think it had something to do with the fact that she was raised in West Virginia. This could have something to do with her low-key lifestyle that we love. After graduating from high school, she went off to Denison University as a chemistry major. Not surprisingly, she switched to drama, realizing that she loved it too much to pursue anything else. After graduation, she moved to New York, and like many aspiring actresses, worked as a waitress. We always appreciate a woman who doesn’t mind working her way to the top.

Once she moved to Los Angeles, she was thrust into the public eye as she assumed her lead role in the television show Alias. She also starred in several chick flicks, including 13 Going on 30, Juno and Catch and Release. In two of her films, Pearl Harbor and Daredevil, she acted alongside her future husband, Ben Affleck, though they didn’t begin dating until 2004. Garner also made her theatre debut in Cyrano de Bergerac in 2007.

While we know she remains stellar in the acting category, we would now like to admire her personal life. In 2001, Garner married boyfriend Scott Foley, but the marriage only lasted three years. Blaming the spilt on the pressures of Hollywood, she was married again soon enough to Mr. Affleck. We love this relationship, as well as the two beautiful daughters is has produced. One of the tabloids’ favourite families, Ben and Jen live at home with Violet and Seraphina, as well as their yellow lab, Martha Stuart. Like most moms, Garner finds balancing being a mom and working tough. She went back to work for the first time after Seraphina’s birth to film Valentine’s Day. As far as the struggle between home and work goes, we think Garner is doing a great job!

However, while she is busy splitting her time, she better add in her promotional and charity work. She has made recruiting videos for the CIA as well as donations to the Save the Children’s Make Time for CHANGE movement, to help children who live in poverty live healthy lifestyles.
