Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck reveal their baby boy’s name

Ben Affleck has revealed the name of his third child with wife Jennifer Garner.

The couple welcomed the latest addition to their adorable family, a baby boy, in Santa Monica earlier this week.

Affleck has confirmed the news on his official Facebook page: ‘We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck.’

Garner is believed to have been used as a middle name, rather than a double-barrelled surname.

The couple are already parents to daughters Violet, five and a half, and two-year-old Seraphina.

Jennifer revealed in January that the girls were desperate to name the new baby after a Disney character: ‘It was like, Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck. And then they’ve moved on,’ she told E! Online.

‘Then it was Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Smee,’ she added.
