We've been assuming for a while now that Jennifer Garner (39) and Ben Affleck (39) are having a boy. But now the rumours are swirling in the other direction....

Jennifer's comments on Jay Leno's Tonight Show yesterday suggest that they actually may be having another girl.

On the show, Jennifer, who's due late February or early March, told Jay a lot of the same things she told Ellen Degeneres back in September — i.e., how her daughters, Violet (6) and Seraphina (3), have tons of whacky names picked out for the new baby already, and how having a third girl would be ideal for her.

But she added some interesting new tidbits. She revealed that she and Ben actually know the sex of the baby this time, but, of course (and good for them), they're keeping it a secret — "I'm not supposed to share it with you, Jay." And she said she's not sure if Ben really does want a boy, as she previously suspected. Interesting....

"I would have thought [he]," she told Jay. "At first I think I really thought so, and then he 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."

I guess will have to wait and see, huh? But what do you think, Gorgeouses? Think it's a girl now? Or is Jennifer trying to throw us off the scent?

Here, check out the vid for the whole scoop (very cute!)....
