Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have given us hope that there could be a reconciliation between them in the near future.

In a Facebook post, Ben confessed that he had quietly received and completed rehabilitation for his alcohol addiction. He also vowed to be the best father he could be and used the opportunity to thank his "co-parent" Jennifer.

The Batman actor was admitted into rehab in 2001. He and Jennifer separated mid-2015, pending a divorce, until earlier this month when they called it off.

"I went to rehab for being 29 and partying too much and not having a lot of boundaries and to clear my head and try to get some idea of who I wanted to be," Ben told The Hollywood Reporter in 2012. "It was more a 'let me get myself straight,' before it became a rite of passage."
