Academy Award winner Ben Affleck and his beautiful wife Jennifer Garner are now proud parents of their third child and first son! Jen delivered in a Santa Monica hospital, a source close to the couple tells Highlight Hollywood. People Magazine broke the story earlier this evening, and we were on the phones as quickly as we possibly could be, in order to verify the authenticity of the story. The friend says they are about to announce it in the morning, and the baby boy is healthy and the parents are ecstatic. The couple has two daughters, 6-years-old Violet and 3-years-old Seraphina. The announced last summer that they were expecting a baby, and Jen blurted out to Jay Leno two months ago that she knew the sex of the baby. Well, now we all know! It’s a boy!
The parents are both 39, and now Ben has a little more equality of the sexes in the house. With Jen and her two girls, the two guys are still outnumbered, but at least the ball team is a bit more complete now. Asked if the couple plans on anymore kids, the source tells Highlight Hollywood, “I would not count it out. Ben and Matt Damon have a very healthy competition going, and Ben and Jen would love a bigger family.”
Good luck to the Affleck/Garner family! And many more!
