Ben Affleck turns 43 today, and he spent yesterday with his kids in Atlanta.

A source tells People magazine that Affleck, who has endured increased scrutiny following his separation from Jennifer Garner and rumors of an affair with their nanny, Christine Ouzounian, is "happiest when he's with his family. He's focused on his kids and his work. He's trying to ignore this circus."

The same source has denied that Affleck gave Ouzounian the Lexus in which she was photographed this week, and the contention that he is in constant touch with her. "They are not in communication. They are not talking."

According to the Daily Mail, a day ahead of his birthday, Ben, his mom, and a new nanny took his kids, Violent, Seraphina, and Samuel, to Fernbank Science Center for a family day. Beefy Ben was in shades and a baseball cap.
