Filing for divorce seems to have done Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner a world of good. The exes seem happy these days, and with their new ‘honest and raw’ relationship, along with a possibly surprise pregnancy, there may be a chance at a real reconciliation, a new report claims.
Could Ben Affleck, 43, and Jennifer Garner, 43, be getting back together?! Even though they’ve broken up, the stars have been spending quite a lot of time together lately, and according to a new report, their relationship is stronger and more honest than ever.
“They’ve never been as honest and raw with each other as they have over the past few months,” an source told OK! magazine of the couple, who’ve been attending joint therapy sessions. “It’s connected them emotionally, in a way neither of them could have predicted.”
In therapy, the actors have both come to terms with what they contributed to the downfall of the marriage, according to the mag. “[Ben] has promised to cut back on his drinking and gambling for the sake of the children,” the insider said. “He also admitted that he works too much. [And Jen] admitted that she can be judgmental and harsh in the way she speaks to Ben, especially when they’re fighting. And she’s been making a real effort to be direct with him now when she wants something, instead of her usual passive-aggressiveness.”
All this progress has reportedly brought the pair closer, and after a mid-August family dinner, Ben allegedly spent the night at his ex-wife’s house. Now, Jen’s friend are speculating that she may be pregnant with the duo’s fourth child after a one night stand, OK! reports. “She kept saying how exhausted she is,” the pal explained. “And she’s told a few very close friends that the only other times she’s experienced this kind of fatigue were in the early stages of her pregnancies.”
Reps have denied pregnancy rumors diligently, and as HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Jen isn’t interested in having more kids. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t hope for this relationship! “Jen is interested in saving her marriage for her kids,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s taking it day-by-day and Ben has really been a changed man of late, so it might just work out now that the dust has cleared.”
