In the first two photos, Garner cried while clapping at the 18-year-old’s ceremony and wiped tears from her eyes.

The “Alias” alum, 52, sobbed on a plane in the next two shots, asking what she was “gonna do” and how she would “make it,” before completing the carousel with a silly snap in “2024” sunglasses.

Garner’s fellow A-list moms shared supportive words in the comments.

Ree Drummond, for her part, reflected on the “deep, searing pain/joy/grief/pride/mourning” involved in watching your child graduate.

Garner gave birth to Violet in 2005 while married to Affleck, followed by Seraphina, now 15 and Samuel, now 12, in 2009 and 2012, respectively.

The Emmy nominee told “Live With Kelly and Mark” viewers in November 2023 that Violet was “handling [the stress of college applications] like a champ.”

While Affleck did not appear in Garner’s emotional upload, the former couple have co-parented their little ones since separating in 2015.

The actor, 51, is currently facing split speculation less than two years into his and Jennifer Lopez’s marriage, with a source telling Page Six Monday that Affleck has “come to his senses” about the “fever dream” romance.

The insider claimed that the Oscar winner, who was recently spotted without his wedding ring and missed his wife’s “Atlas” premiere, “understands there is just no way this is going to work.”
