Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, one of Hollywood’s most adored couples and the parents of daughters Violet and Seraphina, are expecting their third child…and it’s a boy!
Ben Affleck, who rose to fame alongside his BFF Matt Damon after writing the Oscar-winning screenplay for Good Will Hunting, and Jennifer Garner, whose sexy portrayal of a kick-ass international spy gave her critical acclaim, have been married since 2005. They are said to have first met on the set of Pearl Harbor in 2001 when Jennifer was married to then-husband, Scott Foley. As fate would have it they met again as co-stars of the 2003 blockbuster, Daredevil, and began dating in 2004. When they married, in a private ceremony on the luxurious Caribbean sands of Turks and Caicos, the pair was already expecting their first child, Violet, now five years old. Their second daughter, Seraphina, followed a three years later and is now two years old.
The picturesque family is frequently spotted shopping at their local farmer’s market, heading to ballet class, and walking around town hand in hand. They appear to be one of the most down-to-earth and idyllic couples in Hollywood, avoiding the spotlight but for Affleck’s critically acclaimed new role in the Director’s chair, and weekly paparazzi photos of the family enjoying in wholesome outdoor activities. They walk in the rain, go to baseball games, stock up on organic fruits and veggies, and take their girls to the playground.
Since news of the pregnancy broke after paparazzi photos of Jennifer’s growing baby bump were taken, fans of the couple have been waiting on the edges of their seats for news of the child’s sex. Though the couple has yet to confirm the speculation, sources close to the couple have spilled the beans on their new addition. Affleck, a guy’s guy who is known for his love of baseball, was hoping to have a son to play catch with, while Garner, who is one of three sisters, is also said to be ecstatic with the news. Jennifer has already been spotted around town buying a lot of blue!
No word on the due date yet, but the actress appears to be about 6 months pregnant by the looks of her bump. Judging from all those trips to the farmer’s market, Garner is already well versed on the ideal pregnancy diet and how to treat her body well. The actress and mother look healthy and has already got the pregnancy glow.
Congratulations Violet, Seraphina, Jen, and Ben!
