Ben Affleck Wants To Have Another Baby With Wife, Jennifer Garner! Will This Save Their Marriage? Exclusive!

An insider tells HollyBaby that Ben Affleck’s ready to give daughters Violet and Seraphina a sibling. But his wife, Jen Garner, isn’t thrilled about the idea of more kids because he’s never around.

A source close to Jennifer Garner tells exclusively that Ben Affleck’s bugging her to expand their family. “When Jennifer asked Ben what he wanted for Christmas, he said, ‘Another child,’” shares the insider. But Jen, 38, isn’t exactly jumping at the idea of a third child right now. After all, she’s the one left to take care of Violet, 5, and Seraphina, 23 months, while Ben’s busy acting in and directing film projects. “Jen wants more kids, too. She would have 10 if she could, but they both work a lot and Violet and Seraphina take up a lot of her time as it is with Ben being away all the time.”

Jen goes shopping for the girls

After their relationship hit a rocky patch this year Ben, 38, started thinking that a baby would be the best band-aid to repair their marriage. “Ben thinks it will bring the family closer together,” the source tells us. Jen disagrees, and I can’t say that I blame her. “Jen isn’t sure about the idea. Having had some marital problems in the last few months, it’s not logical to bring another child into the marriage.”

Ben and Jen are spotted holding hands

Apparently he’s also envious of his best friend from Boston, Matt Damon’s new baby daughter, Stella, who was born in October. “Matt raves about his kids. He says that every time one of the kids is born it’s like it’s the first time all over again. So he’s got Ben thinking about when his little girls were born and now Ben has the baby itch,” reveals the source, who stresses that Ben is really serious about this whole baby issue, but it blew up in his face. “He thought it would be a great holiday gift to share with everyone, but it’s only caused another rift in the marriage.”

I never see them having probs…they always look happy & in love to me…It’s about time for the “Seventh-Inning Stretch,” isn’t it?? That’s when it ain’t new but it ain’t old…
Quit starting rumors!!!! They both work, and ben is home as much as he can be…My dad was on the road for his CPA firm, dong state hospitals’ taxes…He was home on the weekends!! My parents were married 57 years…You people wouldn’t know a happy marriage if it bit you…
