Jennifer Garner has revealed that husband Ben Affleck is the "fun parent" in their family.

The Dallas Buyers Club actress and Argo star Ben have three children - Violet, eight, Seraphina, five and two-year-old Samuel - and Jen has told how the couple have clearly defined roles, reported Us Weekly.

She said on The Tonight Show in the US: "We are divided down a very mom-dad [line]. If it has to do with making food, or homework or anything that has to do with actually functioning, that's a mom thing.

"Then coming in, just as you're getting them to bed and picking them up by their heels and swinging them around? That's a dad thing. Anything fun, that is Ben!"

The couple juggle their parenting duties with their Hollywood careers and Jennifer revealed that Ben is soon heading off to start working on the Superman vs Batman film, in which he will play the Caped Crusader.

"I get home Friday and he leaves that day for Batman," she said. "I know, it's going to be awful, though, because he's been home now for a few months and when he's really home, he's so in dad mode and I think he's going to have a hard time."

Jennifer, 41, also revealed to host Jimmy Fallon that her husband is loving having a son.

"He LOVES his girls, but he's serious about his son right now," she said. "So, he taught him about his bits. He taught him about his 'P' and his two 'Ns'."
