Ben Affleck has revealed the name of his new son on his Facebook page. Surprisingly for a Hollywood couple, he and wife Jennifer Garner, 39, have settled on a pretty ‘normal’ name, Samuel Garner Affleck.
“We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck,” Ben, 39, wrote.
It seems that the proud new parents managed to talk their two daughters, Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3, out of their Disney-themed name suggestions then!
Ben and Jennifer were coy about announcing the sex of their baby during the pregnancy, even keeping it secret from their two girls. Despite reports Ben wanted a boy this time around, the couple insisted they didn’t care about the sex of their third child.
In an earlier interview Jennifer explained, “I would have thought he wanted a boy. At first… I really thought so, and then Ben kind of said, ‘Well, we have girls. We know how to do girls. My girls love me. I’m the big guy in the house.’ So, now I’m not sure.”
We’re sure Ben will get used to not being the only man in the family so enough.
