It’s a Boy for Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck! (UPDATED)
Jennifer Garner’s and Ben Affleck’s new baby has arrived—and it’s a boy! Congratulations!
So remember back in January when Jennifer Garner told Jay Leno that she was 17 and a half months pregnant, but wasn’t due until the spring? Well, she may have fibbed just a little bit, because guess what? It’s a boy for her and Ben Affleck! Mazel tov, you two!
We don’t know when exactly the little bundle of joy arrived, but everyone from Us Weekly to People is reporting that sources have confirmed to them that the bouncing little boy has burst onto the scene. The as-yet-unnamed baby joins big sisters Seraphina, who is three, and Violet, who is 6. I wonder if Jen and Ben will just keep having babies every three years? That could develop into quite a brood.
Speaking of names, we’d like to take this moment to remind Jen and Ben that we came up with a whole list of fantastic, unusual baby names, and that they are welcome to use any one of them. Or several of them. They can be combined into an almost endless selection of possibilities. Howabout Jackalope Lampshade? He can be called Jack for short. It’s perfect. He’ll fit right in with little Moxie CrimeFighter Jillette and Pilot Inspektor Lee.
Well, in any event, good luck to the happy parents as they embark on this new adventure in parenting. Boys can be a whole different can of worms than girls, but they seem to have been doing quite well thus far, so we’re sure that they’ll rise to the occasion magnificently. Besides, now Ben’s got another Y chromosome in the house, so maybe he won’t feel so hopelessly outnumbered by the women in his life anymore. Or something.
UPDATED: The baby has a name, and it isn’t Jackalope Lampshade! According to People, littl Samuel Garner Affleck arrived on Monday, February 27.
Congrats to the whole Garner-Affleck family! (again!)
