Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner baptised their son in her hometown.

The acting couple christened 16-month-old Sam when visiting Charleston, West Virginia on Sunday.

Ben, 40, and Jennifer, 41, were joined by their two daughters Violet, seven, and Seraphina, four, plus Jennifer’s parents and her sister.

"He's really cute. He was wearing little blue overalls," a parishioner told People about the youngster. "He kept trying to high-five the pastor as he was getting baptised."

The event took place at Jennifer’s family's parish, Christ Church United Methodist.

Their children were full of personality on the special day apparently.

"Violet was very well-behaved," the parishioner said. "Seraphina was funny – she was running around, and Ben had to keep getting up to run after [her]."

Ben donned a fitted suit and Jennifer fashioned a white dress.

The pair were filled with joy at the religious ceremony and gathering of loved ones.

“They looked really happy," the insider continued.

The night before the duo celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary in simple style.

They went to a local pizza places named Pies & Pints to enjoy a dinner of beer, pizza and salad.

"They were so cute, holding hands and kissing each other. She had her hand on his leg," fellow diner Robyn Brammer revealed. "They were really affectionate."

Apparently the famous faces can be seen there regularly when they have time to return.

"Ben and Jen like to drop in when they're in town," Pies & Pints owner Rob Lindeman shared. "They're just really solid people. They seemed like they were having a great time. “

After dinner Ben and Jennifer are said to have visited Ellen's Homemade Ice Cream for dessert.

Ben reportedly tipped up to six employees "like $100 each."
