Jennifer Garner is admitting her recent “mom fail.”
The 49-year-old recently shared on The Late Late Show alongside Greg Kinnear how she accidentally hit reply all when responding to her kids’ coach — revealing that Kinnear was one of many on the receiving end of the email.
“So, we have kids who do the same activity and I emailed the coach one weekend, kind of being funny about my kid and saying, ‘Well, this one seems to be getting a little womped this weekend,’ ” she recalled. “‘So, what does that mean for tomorrow morning because we have something planned? What does that mean typically?’ And I was being funny, I thought I was being funny.”
“Turns out it was the one time in my life I replied all,” Garner added. “I replied to everyone on the team, to every parent, including you and Helen.”
Jennifer then asked Kinnear, 58, if he remembered her embarrassing moment and he responded, “I do remember this. I remember thinking, ‘Jennifer Garner is a raging lunatic.’ Sweet enough, but I had no idea.”
However, the actor admitted that he also hit reply all on an email in the past, but it was “not as bad” as Garner’s story.
Jennifer then asked if the email came off as “cute and funny,” to which Kinnear responded laughing, “No, no, no.”
Garner is mom to three children, Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10, whom she shares with ex-husband Ben Affleck.
This past September, Garner went on about her excitement as her children went back to school.
“I’m just so happy for them. And I’m nervous and hopeful and grateful. All the things. I feel all of it,” she said, noting her added excitement for a child in high school.
“I love back to school. I’m ready for it,” she added at the time. “I love high school football games. I loved any high school game. I’m so excited to have a high schooler and to get to go.”
Garner also revealed how her kids prepare each night for school, sharing how they’re “more organized than I am, honestly.”
“We’re big on having everything packed the night before,” she said. “Clothes are laid out. The backpack’s by the door. Backpacks with computers, there’s a charging station by the door. Backpacks, computers, everything’s already in there and charged for the bigger kids.”
“Phones are already in their charger so that I know they aren’t going to their rooms at night,” Garner continued. “And yeah, just tons of alarms go off just in time to think about going to the bus.”
