This is 49! Jennifer Garner rings in her birthday with shopping and a celebratory lunch in rainy NYC… before donating $10K to two charities

Jennifer Garner celebrated her 49th birthday in NYC with a no-fuss outing— minus a bit of unexpected rain.  

The 13 Going On 30 star was seen doing a bit of shopping before grabbing a celebratory lunch at Sarabeth’s with some friends. 

Despite the festive day, the down to earth mother of three felt no need to put on a show with her outfit as she jaunted around the city in jeans and a black cardigan.

Jennifer kept it classic in blue jeans and a striped T-shirt with a sweater on top for added warmth. 

And the Texas native wasn’t afraid of a little rain but had a trusty driver ready with an umbrella to shield her from getting soaked. 

She was suited up in a black face mask while running from place to place and carried a hot cup of coffee in hand. 

On Instagram she had revealed that her ‘birthday wish’ was for her followers to join her for a dance party to benefit Save The Children and the Equal Justice Initiative.

Additionally she revealed that as she approaches 50 she wants to do more producing so she can push narratives and greenlight projects that are suitable for more seasoned actresses like herself. 

Speaking about still being a household name all these years later she confessed: ‘It’s a very hungry, greedy career and a very unforgiving one…and for someone who has chosen family way more often than I probably should have, I can’t believe I’m still here.’
