After their relationship hit a rough patch in the past year, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are back on track and ready to expand their family!

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck already have two adorable daughters, Violet, 4, and Seraphina, 20 months, but an insider tells HollyBaby.com exclusively that the couple are hoping to have another baby — soon. “They always planned on having another child. They’re getting along better than ever and are going to start trying again,” adds the insider, who reveals that while Ben would love to have a boy, he’d be just as happy if a third daughter joined the family.

Over the past year, Ben, 38, was so busy writing, directing and acting in the film The Town, that it began to seriously affect his five-year marriage to Jennifer. Luckily for Ben, all of his hard work paid off because The Town topped the box office last weekend — which was a huge relief considering he’s had a string of box office flops! “He’s finally in a good place,” the source tells HollyBaby.com.

Now that he’s done promoting the film that got his career back on track, Jen, 38, is making sure that Ben spends more time with her and the kids they already have. “Jennifer is very family-oriented. She’s hoping now that Ben will get back to playing the role of doting dad,” says the insider. Maybe we’ll be seeing Ben take Violet to and from her ballet classes in the near future! “It’s not that Ben doesn’t love his kids, he does, but Jen feels they need to do more things as a family and is making sure that they fit it into their schedules,” adds the insider. Ben and Jen make beautiful babies, so we can’t wait to see a third little Affleck out and about in Hollywood and Boston!
