Everyone Wants Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner To Have A Baby Boy — Even Best Pal Matt Damon!

The actor — friends with Ben since childhood — is rooting for a baby son to break up the female dominated Affleck-Garner household!

Matt Damon‘s not alone, although he’s telling everyone he just wants his buddy to have a healthy baby — sources say Ben Affleck‘s secretly hoping his wife Jennifer Garner is expecting a little brother for their two daughters!

“I really hope it’s a boy,” Matt Damon, joked to reporters when asked about his best bud’s baby news.

The star, himself a dad to FOUR girls, added, “I think that you always cross your fingers for a healthy kid. Everybody would settle for a very healthy, beautiful baby.”

Friends tell Ok! magazine that Ben agrees, but has his fingers crossed for a son. “Ben is so excited,” the pal says. “He’s really hoping for a boy, but obviously, he’ll be happy with either sex.”

“Jen doesn’t care one way or the other. She’s just thrilled to be pregnant again.”

As for their daughters, Violet, 5, and Seraphina, 2 — they’re overjoyed!

“Seraphina is probably more excited than Violet, because now she gets to be the big sister, too.”

And they’re more than willing to help out when it comes to picking out baby names: “They are coming up with names. But most of them are stolen from their favorite Disney characters.”

Maybe they should leave the names to mom and dad!

What do you think Jen’s expecting, HollyMoms? A THIRD daughter — or boy number one!

hollybaby it’s a 50/50 shot everyone should butt out as long as mother and child are healthy the gender doesn’t matter. Ben and Jen won’t love their baby any less if it’s a girl again same as Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward didn’t their youngest daughter Claire
