  • The proud parents’ third child will reportedly be a baby brother for their two girls

    Hollywood power couple Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are expecting a baby boy, according to reports.


    It’s thought A-list pair, who announced they were expecting their third child back in August, have found out their new addition will be a tiny brother for their two girls Violet, five-and-a-half, and two year old Seraphina,

    And according to American magazine Life & Style, doting father Ben just couldn’t be more excited to welcome a ‘little sports buddy’.

    ‘He can’t wait to take his son to baseball games and play catch with him,’ one insider told the title.

    Meanwhile, coming from a family of girls, Jennifer’s said to be slightly more nervous about the tiny male arrival.

    ‘She feels like she won’t know what to do,’ the source added. ‘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.’

    But we’re sure Jen will be just fine.

    In the past the actress has spoken about being very hands-on with her super-cute brood.

    Speaking of juggling work as an actress with motherhood, Jennifer who will soon hit screens in upcoming flick Butter, alongside Ashley Greene, Olivia Wilde and Hugh Jackman, revealed: ‘[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.’

    Congratulations to the happy family!
