In a statement released Monday, the couple announced that they are thrilled to have another baby in addition to 5-year old Violet and 2-year old Seraphina. A source close to the couple told USmagazine.com that Jennifer has always wanted three kids.
In April, Garner told US magazine that the key to juggling motherhood and a busy acting career is a great nanny and supportive husband. She also points out that it’s not as glamorous as we all would think.
Ben Affleck hopes he’s a good dad, as he revealed to the UK’s Mirror in 2008. “I think we all like to see ourselves as good dads, but there’s also that fear, ‘Oh, I don’t want to be like my father,’ or, ‘I hope my kid doesn’t turn out like me.’ You know, I have those feelings too,” he says. ”So the key is optimism.”
Fatherhood has definitely changed him for the better, he also says in the interview.
Affleck and Garner, both 39, married in 2005. They starred together in the film Daredevil in 2003. Ben recently wrote, directed, and starred in The Town. Garner is promoting her new film The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
