Just the other day, we had a brief convo on Twitter. Some of our readers tweeted that they were getting flack for enjoying a moderate amount of caffeine while pregnant. I can totally see a website (or commenter!) chastising Jennifer Garner (39) for enjoying an iced Starbucks tea while extremely pregnant.
Who knows? It’s probably decaf, anyway.
Here she is with little Seraphina (3). Gosh, with two little ones to take care of (Seraphina and 6-year-old Violet), caffeine would definitely be appealing. I remember calling my doctor when I was pregnant with my second child, asking if I could have a second chai-tea latte late in the afternoon. “No problem,” she said. And I chugged it so fast, as my under-two-year-old daughter sat with me, enjoying a blueberry muffin….
Jennifer’s due very soon, and you can tell in her face that some third-trimester exhaustion is kicking in. She still looks gorj as ever (perhaps even more gorj, au naturel and smiling). But she’s probably getting uncomfortable and antsy! I remember it well….
