Ben Affleck wants another baby

Baby Samual's only five months old, and Ben Affleck's aching for another child with wife, Jennifer Garner. See what she has to say about it.

“The fact that Ben wants another [baby] is true,” Jennifer Garner, 40, told Extra yesterday.

But does Jennifer want another baby? “I can tell you that would be a pretty uphill battle with me,” she said. “I am not anticipating having any more kids!”

Jennifer and Ben, 39, are already parents to Violet, 6.5, Seraphina, 3.5, and Samuel, just 5 months old, AND Jennifer is 40, so it’s not surprising that she’s had enough. Although…, we know that in Hollywood 40 and up is a ripe age for having kids, so it wouldn’t surprise me if they had another child.

It also doesn’t surprise me that Ben loves being a dad so much that he wants another baby already. In fact, as Jennifer told Extra, Ben’s such a supportive husband and father that he opted to put his career on hold and take care of the kids, so Jennifer could do her latest movie The Odd Life of Timothy Green — a family movie she simply could not say “no” to (indeed, from now on, she says she’ll only do movies she can’t refuse). “Ben took a break,” she said. “He came, he did the school drop-offs and pick-ups and bedtimes.”
