Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are expecting another baby! The couple are parents to Violet Anne, 5 and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 2. I wonder if they will stick to flower names + normal girl name combinations for their third child as well. Daisy Jessica, Petunia Megan, Sunflower Brittany? I should never be allowed to name children.
The couple’s representative has released a one-word statement to the Associated Press saying they are “thrilled” to have a baby on the way. No other details have been released but it’s believed that Jennifer is in her second trimester. Sources say they have been trying to add to their family for a while now, the Garner-Affleck clan wants to “out-baby” the Jolie-Pitt clan. I kid. I kid.
A source says, “She’s always wanted three kids. This was her plan all along.” Affleck and Garner are the cutest celeb couple ever, they seem so normal and not Hollywood at all. Despite Affleck’s weird midlife crisis hair-cut, they are still my fave star couple.
Though Garner says it isn’t easy being a mom and an actress. After the two welcomed the birth of Seraphina in 2009, Garner says, “I fake it like any working mom, and I run out the door. If you looked in my bag, there’s a sippy cup in there right now!” she tells People.
And says she has a “split personality” in order to juggle working and parenting. “I feel like half my brain is somewhere else all the time, but when the camera’s rolling, I pull it together and focus for two minutes and then I kind of turn back to a ditz again.”
But Garner says there is no “right” way to be a mom. “It’s tricky, I don’t think there’s any right way to be a mom. Whatever works for you, don’t judge yourself for it. And don't let others judge you. Just do what feels best for your family, and if that's going to work, then go to work with your head held high, and if that's staying at home, then don't let yourself feel any less for being at home with your kids."
Affleck previously stated that he would “love to” have more kids. The more the merrier, which I think is what the Kate Gosselin said, I’m sure, as 6 babies popped out of her uterus.
Right now, Affleck is starring in and directing a CIA-based film called “Argo.” Jennifer can be seen next in the Disney film, “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.”
