The Associated Press has confirmed the news that Jennifer Garner is expecting her third child with Ben Affleck. The two actors, who married in 2005, are parents to Violet, 5, and Seraphina, 2. The new bundle of joy’s due date hasn’t been released. Neither have any other details. Except that the couple is “thrilled” with the news. Well that’s good!
Garner told Parents magazine in 2009 that parenting was a great joy:
”The best part of being a mom is the kid herself ”” that you get to have this little person be your friend and hang out with you (and drive you crazy!),” she told the mag at the time. ”Obviously your life changes and your heart expands, and it’s something you can’t even put into words without sounding incredibly sentimental and cliched ”” both of which I am! But what it really is, is this new being is there, which is just the most fun ever.”
While pregnant with Seraphina, Jennifer said she used it as an excuse to enjoy more sweets.
”I always have cravings,” she also told Parents magazine. ”It doesn’t matter if I’m pregnant or not! I use pregnancy as an excuse to say I’m craving ice cream and chocolate, but really, that’s just me.”
As a third child, I just have to say that this news is awesome. Third children are the best!*
