Jennifer Garner named Celebrity Mother of the Year

Slide 1 of 14

ETOnlineJJennifer Garner, 40, not only remains an A-list actress and looks amazing without makeup, but she's now also being recognized as an incredible mother to her three kids with Ben Affleck, Violet, 7, Seraphina, 3, and Samuel, 10 months.The woman who has it all was just crowned Celebrity Mother of the Year by Today's Parent magazine, which says she won by "a landslide." The magazine chose Garner because she appears easy to relate to yet is still "gorgeous and put-together." The mag's editors also note Garner's honesty about being overwhelmed and exhausted as a mother of three, specifically her surprisingly candid admission to Conan O'Brien in August that she's done having kids.

She'll star opposite Matthew McConaughey in next year's highly anticipated "Dallas Buyers Club."Though the actress's big win is hardly surprising, one look at her seemingly always happy children is a testament to her amazing parenting skills.
