Hollywood Couple Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner Welcome Third Child
March 1, 2012
Actors Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have a new family edition, with the news breaking earlier in the week via a source close to the couple. Already parents of two daughters, ages 6 and 3, the happy couple can now count a boy amongst their growing family.
People magazine got a confirmation from the source, with proud papa Ben taking to Facebook to announce the name of their son. “We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck.”
A recent late-night television appearance from the actress revealed that the proud papa wasn’t even expecting a boy, growing comfortable as a dad of daughters.
In January, Garner visited the "Jay Leno Show" where she shared that Ben was fine with another daughter. "I would have thought [he wanted a boy]. At first, I really thought so," Garner told Leno. "And then [Affleck] kind of said, 'Well, we have girls. We know how to do girls. My girls love me. I'm the big guy in the house.' So, now I'm not sure.”
Congrats to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner.
