On Sunday, Ben, his fiancée Jennifer Lopez and son Samuel – who he shares with Jennifer Garner – were spotted browsing a luxury car dealership in Beverly Hills.

The trio, joined by a salesman, seemed interested in a very expensive yellow Lamborghini and could be seen opening the doors to inspect the interior.

Video footage of the incident shows Ben jumping out of the driver’s seat before putting little Samuel behind the wheel.

Supervising Samuel through the driver’s door, Ben turns his head for a split second as J.Lo settles into the back seat.

In the blink of an eye, Ben is forced to stabilize as the car rolls backwards and seemingly collides with the front wheel of a white BMW parked close behind.

J.Lo – apparently unperturbed by the small dent – continues her inspection of the interior of the rear seat while Ben and the clerk sheepishly walk to the rear bumper. After a short while, Sam gets out of the car to inspect the damage himself.

I’m no expert but it appears the car’s engine was running and Sam had accidentally put it in reverse causing it to roll backwards.

In photos taken shortly after the incident, Ben could be seen comforting his son with a hug while J.Lo scrolled through her phone.

The awkward snaps prompted a lot confused answers online, so it wasn’t long before an employee of the dealership spoke up to correct the situation.

“When [Samuel] When I got in the car, it jerked back and forth,” the New York Post representative said. “We have a small property and the cars are close by.”

Despite the collision, they said Ben, J.Lo and Sam were in high spirits and continued to browse the eye-catching collection of cars. “Affleck loves cars,” the employee added. “We hope they come back in.”

Not long after, a spokesman for Ben also joined the rebuild to confirm everyone is fine and thankfully no damage was sustained to either car. Looks like Samuel’s pocket money is safe for now.

The accident came just a week after J.Lo shared an exuberant Instagram post for Ben on Father’s Day, in which he called him the “most caring, loving, loving, enduring and selfless daddy ever.”

In her newsletter, she elaborated on On the JLowhere she gave an insight into the merging of her and Ben’s families and praised him for loving her two children “without commitment”.

While Ben has three children with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, J.Lo is a mother to twins Emme and Max, whom she shares with ex Marc Anthony.

On Father’s Day, J.Lo said that seeing Emme and Max with Ben was “one of the most beautiful things”.

“For over a year I have had a front row seat to watching you become a father and I have never seen a more consistent, loving and selfless father,” she wrote. “And not only for your own children, but also for mine without obligation.”

That being said, anyone who can stay cool after their 10-year-old causes a collision in a $225,000 vehicle is certainly a parent to be commended.
