Jennifer Garner stepped out for a pre-birthday celebration in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon. 

The 13 Going On 30 actress, who turns 50 on Sunday, stepped out in a loose-fitting gray sweater and a pair of high-waisted blue jeans. 

The ex-wife of Argo actor Ben Affleck wore loafers, and her socks didn’t poke out from above the heel.

The Texas native brought a cake in a white box with a red stripe along the side and on the top. 

She let her hair down later on as she was leaving the event.  

Garner’s appearance out came just days after her ex-husband Ben Affleck announced he was engaged to Jennifer Lopez.

The pair became engaged on Wednesday, April 6 when he got down on one knee and offered her a diamond ring reportedly worth $10 million. 

Lopez was in the bubble bath when she said Affleck popped the question. 

‘[I] just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again,’ she wrote in her fan newsletter. ‘I was quite literally speechless and he said, ‘Is that a yes?’ I said “YES of course that’s a YES.”‘ 

The pair were previously engaged from 2002 to 2004.

Despite their own romantic history, Garner reacted very positively to the engagement news. 

An insider told E! News that Jennifer Garner ‘knows that J-Lo has been a positive influence in certain ways’ and said Garner is ‘happy’ for her ex-husband. 

Another source told the outlet that,’Ben told Jen and the kids, so they knew about it,’ echoing an insider who told Us Weekly that Ben informed his ex and children ‘ahead of time.’ 

Garner and Affleck were married from 2005 to 2018, wedding just one year after Lopez and Affleck’s initial engagement ended. 

They share three children: 16-year-old Violet, 13-year-old Seraphina and 10-year-old Samuel.

Later in the day Garner took to her Instagram to share a clip of a sweet pre-birthday surprise she received from Donny Osmond.

‘My first (pre)birthday surprise was a doozy — the one and only, legend in his own time, object of my childhood adoration and devotion — @donnyosmond showed up to knock my purple socks off,’ she wrote in the caption underneath the video.

‘He took an hour and a half of his day to sit with me, sing my favorites, and to give me a master class on how to be a class act.’
