Jennifer Garner is reportedly expecting her and Ben Affleck’s fourth child! And although the couple are in the middle of a divorce, according to a new report, Jen immediately called it off once she found out about her bun in the oven. Could a new baby be just what this duo needs to save their marriage?
Jennifer Garner, 44, and Ben Affleck, 43, may have filed for divorce, but a certain surprise may just reverse that decision completely. In fact, a new report even claims that Jen and Ben have been doing better than EVER and it’s all because a new baby Affleck is on the way! Of course the actors could not be more “excited!”
“Their friends are expecting an announcement very soon that Jen is pregnant,” revealed an inside source to Life & Style magazine. “Given Jen’s age, she’d want to be cautious about saying anything too early. But Ben’s been very attentive to Jen, making sure she’s taking it easy. He’s even bringing her breakfast in bed. Jen has been absolutely glowing!” Aw! If the news is true, this could actually be JUST what the troubled coupled may need to mend their relationship issues.
And it already seems to be working — the pair even went on an intimate stroll on April 19 along with their son, Samuel, 4. “They were laughing and very touchy-feely with each other,” dished an onlooker who also revealed that Jen lovingly rested her hand on Ben’s arm. “Then they got in the same car to go home. They seemed close.”
Although it’s been 10 months since Jen and Ben announced that their 10-year marriage was coming to an end, apparently the two have called off all plans for divorce — and friends believe that has EVERYTHING to do with a new bundle of joy! Ben has even reportedly completely stepped up his hubby game by planning romantic date nights for two, going to couples counseling, and spending extra time with the kids.
“For all of Ben’s faults, he is a truly great father,” noted the source. “Jen loves being a mom, and having another baby would make her bond to Ben even stronger.” So sweet! Jen has also been allegedly “happier than ever” and pals close to the star have noticed that the usually super-fit mom has been appearing a bit rounder in the middle lately — even skipping alcoholic beverages at parties.
If the news is true, we are SO excited for Jen and Ben’s growing family! We hope the new baby will be able to bring the lovebirds together once and for all.
