She's used to looking after her three kids, but Jennifer Garner had an extra little one to deal with on Friday.

The A-lister, who's known for being a hands-on Hollywood mum, ferried her baby Samuel around her hometown of Brentwood while he reached desperately for a toy doll in her other arm.

The down-to-earth actress looked the picture of serenity as she chatted away to her eight-month-old son during their daytime stroll.

Although she has had to learn how to juggle a film career with being a mum, Jennifer seems to be doing just fine as she's regularly spotted ferrying her two young daughters to and from school while looking after her young son.

She hasn't had a hit film in a while, but the star has clearly made the decision to put her career on the back burner and concentrate on her children in their early years.

Looking as casual and dressed down as usual, Jennifer wore a pair of skinny blue jeans for her stroll, showing of her super slim legs.

She added a grey fleece over a T-shirt and a pair of simple, black pumps, proving you don't have to go for all-out glamour to look chic.

With her hair scraped back into a ponytail and a large pair of dark sunglasses covering her face, the actress could have passed for any other LA mum out for a walk.

Jennifer seemed completely absorbed in her young son as they wandered the streets and she couldn't stop chatting away to the little one.

Earlier in the day, Jennifer had managed to get a little alone time with her actor husband, Ben Affleck, as someone gave her a break from her mum duties.

Having a chance to pop out together, the A-list couple decided to go and grab a cup of takeaway coffee before having an animated discussion as they walked home.

Ben looked just as casual and sophisticated as his wife, wearing a chic winter coat over a patterned cardigan and a checked shirt.
