Is this a year for babies, or what? Something about 2010 had people going at it with each other like they're trying to repopulate the Earth.
According to a source for Life & Style, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are expecting their third child, a baby boy. The duo already has two daughters: five year-old Violet and Seraphina, 2. Garner hasn't confirmed the news, but the source is apparently a good family friend.
Ben is reportedly thrilled to have a "little sports buddy…he can’t wait to take his son to baseball games and play catch with him." And Jen "feels like she won't know what to do. She’s close to her two sisters, and her instincts were spot-on with the girls. But she never had a brother and doesn’t know the drill.”
Here's a tip: put a video game controller in their hand. Parenting complete. Good luck taking it away from them for the next 20-30 years, though.
To celebrate the possible news, and to prove that celebs have been popping out a crapload of kids this year, here are 10 new celebrity baby boys of 2011:
Owen Wilson: Kicking the year off right, Owen Wilson welcomed his son into the world back in January. The baby was born in Hawaii, and the mom is Wilson's girlfriend, Jade Duell.
Miranda Kerr: Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom welcomed Flynn into the world earlier this year. And somehow Kerr got her Victoria's Secret body and walked down the runway again, all in one year. God just loves some people more than others.
Cynthia Nixon: Cynthia Nixon's girlfriend gave birth to a baby boy in February, Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni. One of the perks of being a lesbian—you can get your partner to carry the child.
Natalie Portman: Portman gave birth to Aleph back in June. It's her first kid, and Portman says that being a mom feels "very natural."
Kate Hudson: Kate had her second son on July 9. She has seven year-old Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson, but Bingham Hawn Bellamy is her first child with Muse Rocker Matt Bellamy. This is how you do it, groupies.
Mariah Carey: Mariah had two kids at once, and one was a boy. Along with Marilyn, Mariah gave birth to Moroccon. Yeah, she named the kid after a room. The room that Nick Cannon proposed to her in had a Moroccan theme to it. Hence, the baby's name. Thank god he didn’t propose in a Fudrcuker's.
Alicia Silverstone: Bear Blu Jarecki came into the world on May 5. Poor kid sounds like he was named after a cologne. A rep for Alicia said "Mom and Dad are completely in love" with their "beautiful baby boy."
January Jones: The father of January Jones' baby remains a mystery. So much that I'm starting to believe it was conceived via Immaculate Conception. Jones gave birth to a boy on September 13, naming him Xander Dane.
Alyssa Milano: Alyssa and husband Thomas Bugliari welcomed Milo Thomas Bugliari into the world on August 31st. "My heart has tripled in size," Alyssa Tweeted. "I love him more than all the leaves on all the trees." Um, let's hope she loves leaves, because most people are pretty indifferent to them.
Selma Blair: Selma had her first child with boyfriend/fashion designer Jason Bleick on July 25. They named the baby Arthur Bleick. Surprisingly normal for a celebrity.
