Actors Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, who announced in June they were separating and planning to divorce, reportedly are having Christmas together with their three children.

Us Weekly said that “Danny Collins” star Garner and “Good Will Hunting” and “Argo” Oscar winner Affleck, both 43, would spend the holiday at the tony Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Montana. The couple, who married on June 29, 2005, at the Parrot Cay resort in Turks & Caicos, have three children: daughters Violet, 10, Seraphina, 6, and son Samuel, 3.

The magazine, citing an anonymous source, said the gathering was for the sake of the children’s Christmas memories and that no reconciliation is being contemplated.

The stars’ representatives did not respond to Newsday requests for comment.

On June 30, Affleck and former “Alias” star Garner announced that, “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children. . . . ”

They had begun dating several months after Affleck called off his engagement to singer-actress Jennifer Lopez in January 2004. This was his first marriage. Garner wed actor Scott Foley in October 2000 after the two met when she appeared on his show “Felicity” in 1998. She filed for divorce in May 2003, and it was finalized the following March.
