Jennifer Garner’s “Mom Fail”

We loved Jennifer Garner in Alias and 13 Going on 30…and now in her biggest role to date (being a mom of three) you’re going to love her even more.

This week, on an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Jennifer revealed that she accidentally hit “reply all” on a message to one of her kid’s coaches, and all parents in the group were unexpectedly hit up with what was supposed to be a private message about her kid. Jennifer didn’t say exactly what she wrote, but she did say she felt, “like a jerk.” Ack!

This isn’t the first time that Jennifer has garnered unwanted attention after a mom fail. Remember when she was a new mom and accidentally locked herself out of her car with baby Violet trapped inside? It was a momentary snafu that ended safely, but not before being captured on camera by paparazzi.

The panic of locking your child in a car with photos snapping!

But who hasn’t had a newborn and done something like this? You tell me who, Glow Getters, who?!

The reason why we forgive and continue to love Jen, is because she will then turnaround and do something selfless and kind like this…

Yes, Jennifer Garner does work to help underserved children around the world and she recently promoted my book, What Is Light? in a charitable collaboration to help feed the hungry. There’s nothing mom fail-ishy about that… just 100 percent certified organic Glow Girl goodness.

BTW, you can support this mama by watching her new film, The Adam Project is now streaming on Netflix.
