Jennifer Garner looks ready to pop, free of scandal and controversy

There’s not really much of a story with these photos, I just thought they were cute pics, and we haven’t talked about Jennifer Garner in a while. I’m including new photos of Jennifer doing some grocery shopping yesterday, seemingly solo and doing almost everything herself. I’m also including photos of Ben and Jen from a few days ago, when they were spotted looking lovey-dovey coming out of a doctor’s appointment.

Even though Garner and The Dimple Parade have been photographed regularly the past few months, I really do feel like this has been her most low-key pregnancy. Jennifer and Ben Affleck seem tighter than ever – there hasn’t been a scandal for them in a while, although I still think there’s something more to the stories about his gambling. Still, they weathered the speculation well, and at this point, it kind of seems like their marriage is even stronger today than it was one year ago, or two years ago. Ben even seems happier to see the paparazzi around! I suspect that Jennifer really is pregnant with a boy, Ben’s long-awaited son.

I totally forget if Jennifer ever confirmed when the baby is due. I suspect it’s coming up very soon, right? Look at that belly. No pillowy pregnancy for Jennifer. And it just blows me away how much cuter her style is when she’s pregnant.

    She is so naturally pretty-no make up or couture needed. Ugh I hate Ben’s hair like that.

  2. mln76 says:

    OK This is a totally fake scandal I can create out of the top picture (where you can see bottles of wine in the background).

    Jen goes on a drinkning binge in her last week of pregnancy….Ben runs to JLO for help.

    That just made her a bit more interesting :)
    Can’t wait to see the newest set of dimples.

  3. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    In the top photo with the expression on her face, Jen looks a little like Ethan Hawke.

  4. LeeLoo says:

    I still don’t like her or Affleck. In a way that makes them perfect for one another. But I really think Ben was looking for a rebound after J.Lo and stuff with Jen Garner happened. Whether Garner orchastrated it herself I will not say here but I will say I still think she’s the only one into this relationship and Ben is being nice so he doesn’t have to deal with hormones. Either way, good on them for trying to make it work whether that means turning a blind eye or whatever.

    I’m sick of Jennifer Garner and her stupid dimples. Just have the baby so everyone will leave her alone.

    • cmc says:

      Um, whoa. I don’t get the hate- Jennifer Garner seems like a harmless celebrity. And that story about their relationship? You realize you don’t know them, right? They seem like a happy family to me. Sure they have to put up with each other’s flaws and probably fight sometimes, but they don’t seem any different than any other married couple with young kids that I know.

      • LeeLoo says:

        To me it just seems fake, more on Ben’s part than hers. I find Jen Garner annoying but I hate that Ben is only seen with her when it is good for PR or he’s gotten himself in another scandal. Ben is pretty much a sleazy douche in my book and no amount of cuddling with his wife is going to change my opinion of that. Jen Garner is the annoying trophy wife with annoying dimples and by herself I can ignore her. With him it is next to impossible.

      • Tiffany says:

        I agree cmc. The only thing that is fake is LeeLoo’s idea that she actually knows what happens in a relationship between two people she doesn’t know.

      • eileen says:

        I don’t get the hate for these two. They are low key, laid back and seem like dedicated parents. I guess everyone has their taste but creating drama about a couple who clearly don’t have any is pointless IMO.

      • Delleah says:

        Wow is everyone around here this bitchy when someone is honest and speaks their mind? Isn’t that why most of us comment on gossip websites, to give our opinion on the article?

        I’ve come to like you, LeeLoo. You seem to have some sense and call it like it is. I’m not sure what the deal is between these two but they’ve always rubbed me the wrong way, before and after they married. I didn’t like the way Jen dumped Scott Foley and I think Ben has always been more into drugs, hookers and booze than marriage and family, which is fine, but he needs to be honest about it. And all of this is purely speculation and my opinion so don’t bitch at me about not knowing what really goes on between these two.

    • Firecracker says:

      Leeloo, I agree with you. I think Ben was on his way out til the pregnancy happened.

    • HadleyB says:

      LOL. I hardly think so.

      JLO was controlling him and freaked out when she couldn’t actually get him to the alter!

      Does no one remember when he was using bronzer/self tanner, dressing overly snazzy – when that is not his normal way of dressing even on the red carpet?

      JLO went to his house in the country, bike riding, wearing jeans and boots — unheard of for JLO and it STILL didn’t bring him back.

      You can totally tell he was in lust with JLO, and is in LOVE with Jgardner..just because she isn’t an overly made up beauty doesn’t mean he doesn’t love her…

      They were involved before so I hardly think it’s a rebound and 3 kids later? Um no.

  5. Petunia says:

    Jen seems like a nice, grounded person but I have never seen her as even remotely pretty. Rather the opposite, to me, with that huge chin. I know, looks aren’t everything and she seems to be a good wife and mother. But for the life of me, I cannot understand how she ever got to be a famous star or married to a hunk, looks wise.

    • Tazina says:

      You must be kidding. Jennifer is very pretty when she has a reason to fix up. Her smile lights a room. When she’s just hanging out on Mommy duty, shopping, or day to day stuff, she isn’t too worried about wearing dress clothes or makeup. If the paps want to follow her around, then they can take what they get.

      • Petunia says:

        It’s good to hear other people’s POV. I’ve never seen attractiveness in her myself, but there you go, there’s someone for everyone and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And I agree that a great smile can make a person lovely. Thanks for the input.

        And like I said, she seems to be a great mom and good wife, so that’s what counts.

  6. SoCalGal in FL says:

    They both have dirty hair. Why?

    • Petunia says:

      I totally give moms-to-be a free pass for a bad hair day, bad makeup day, dirty hair day, pajama day, whatever. And the same goes for an exhausted dad-to-be.

      It’s when it’s chronic (Brad Pitt) that I get the “ewwww” feeling churning in my gut.

    • Ms Petit says:

      I have to agree, I don’t understand the dirty hair thing. In every non-red carpet photo I’ve seen of JG, her hair always looks dirty. I’m a mom of 3 and have managed to at least wash my hair a few times since the birth of my first ;}

      I do love how she looks now, hair notwithstanding… her belly is adorable!

  7. Dee says:

    I also think they’re having a boy. Something about the pointyness of her belly. They look happier than they have in a LONG time. Best of luck to the family!

  8. guilty pleasures says:

    Why has she been pregnant for so long, when Beyonce was only pregnant for a few weeks?? I’m confused.

  9. RobN says:

    If Ben is that much happier because she’s having a boy, then I kind of hate his guts.

    • sharylmj says:

      me too!! and I really try to like him, but he makes it so hard!!

    • Alix says:

      Agreed. That would make him a dick.

    • cici says:

      Oh come on! What’s wrong with hoping for or being happy about having a boy after 2 daughters. I would too! Everyone talks about “who cares as long as it’s healthy” – I call BS. it’s perfectly fine to want one or the other before the baby arrives. The only important thing is to accept and be happy with what you got once it’s here. You can hate Ben’s guts if he “resents his third daughter,” but not for hoping for a boy.

    • Petunia says:

      Maybe he just wants a boy too, and it would make him very happy. I’m sure it would be nice for him to have someone to play baseball with and talk to in the mancave when the boy is older, just as he’ll appreciate time spent with his daughters. There’s something special in each sex and I can’t fault someone for wanting to have both sexes to experience life with.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      Oh, please! He already has two daughters that he obviously loves, what is wrong with him wanting a son, too?

      Before my daughter was born I was really hoping for a boy. Growing up having only younger sisters, I didn’t want a girl. I love her very much and wouldn’t trade her for the world. But that didn’t stop me from being really excited when my son was born and I finally got my boy.

  10. Naye in VA says:

    Kaiser i have to say that everything looks cute on you when you are pregnant. The clothes you look lumpy or frumpy in pre-pregnancy look GREAT with a basketball in front. That is the ONLY thins i miss about pregnancy. I was a hot pregnant chick. Back to being lumpy

  11. DorothyZbornak says:

    Super-cute. I love her glasses, too.

  12. brin says:

    Love Ben and Jen (and Matt Damon and his wife, too).

  13. Roxy750 says:

    Gosh I love this woman. Now this is what a woman is! Real. Not fake. She doesn’t come across as somebody in a “higher” class. I’m proud of her as a woman and a mother, actress. Thank you Jennifer for being a positive..real life role model. Wish her the best with her family.

  14. the original bellaluna says:

    I like them together, and I’m happy for them & their little addition to their family.

    (Ben’s hair is *ahem* that way for some movie role.)

  15. honeybunz says:

    awwww im dare i say actually rootn for them now!! ses adorable and ben seems more tolerable…and from the looks alone id guess theres a bennydimply boy in that big ol swole hard belly button showing natural looking no pillowpet in sight due any day now tummy!! congrats to a real couple who have real babies in a real marriage who actually define the meaning of “private”!!!

  16. OriginalTiffany says:

    Yep, that right there is a very pregnant lady. For real.
    Funky look on face, belly popping out, probably has to pee. Waddle. Yep.

  17. really says:

    Love love love her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. D says:

    I love how every time some stars get photographed everyone jumps all over them and calls it a pr stunt but Jen garner gets a free pass for getting papped even though she hasn’t been relevant in ages. I’m sure she’s a nice person and a great mother, but c’mon.

  19. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    They are so cute. I appreciate how natural and healthy she looks, just like a pregnant lady running to the store. They are cute, sweet and harmless. Let’s just be happy for them and wish them the best.

  20. Rhiley says:

    Wasn’t she on here yesterday going to lunch with the chick from Party of Five?

  21. Rux says:

    She’s always pregnant that’s why she learned to dress better pregnant; she does not know how to dress her body when there is not bun in the oven.

  22. serena says:

    honestly, she bothers me and it’s hard to pinpoint why. she just seems so milquetoast. pretty but not that pretty, average intelligence, mediocre acting abilities and a sickeningly sweet girly voice. plus she dresses like a soccer mom and her answers in interviews are totally canned and toe the line. in other words, she completely lacks the IT factor.why is she famous?

  23. Enny says:

    When Jen is pregnant (and therefore a little fuller in the face) you can see how much Violet really looks like her!

  24. Quest says:

    She is so pregnantly cute (can I even say that???)


  25. ella says:

    She’s so cute….I kinda don’t like him for w reason idk. Can’t wait to see the baby!!

  26. NO SH¡T says:

    I don’t understand why if you don’t like her why click on a post about her and comment??! NEWS FLASH dumbass you keeping her famous the less hits or comments her posts gets the less bloggers will put up post about her.

  27. dorothy says:

    They are a sweet couple. Bless her heart…she looks miserable, so hard the last few weeks of a pregnancy.

  28. Mara says:

    Such a lovely woman wish her good luck with the new baby .

  29. Insertrandomname says:

    some make- up wouldn’t hurt

  30. Jules says:

    I hope they get a boy this time.

  31. original kate says:

    she looks far more interesting with glasses.

  32. The Truth Fairy says:

    I was indifferent about her until I saw her on the Rachel Zoe show. Now I find her super annoying. I can’t imagine being married to her.

  33. Diane says:

    I am not even a fan of hers, but hasn’t she been pregnant for about 2 years? I bet she would like to sample the champagne/wine that’s in the background of the 1st pic.

  34. ahoyhoy says:

    Belly looks like she’s dropping. I give her 2 1/2 – 3 weeks. Unless it’s scheduled.

  35. BerMan says:

    She’s glowing and he’s glowing. Let them be. They’re happy and getting bless again in a few days. Mazel Tov !

  36. Delleah says:

    They’re a bunch of has beens. Especially Jennifer. I never liked her as an actress. These guys were relevant in 2003. Let them have their perfect little family, let Jennifer preach to the other soccer moms about having a child but I don’t see how these two are still relevant.

  37. Kimberly says:

    natural beauty is never out of style

  38. JoJo says:

    Ben and Jen are one of the only subjects I ever comment on because she just … irks me! Sorry, it’s just true – I can’t help it! A main reason is that she gives the impression that she will do ANYTHING to hold onto Ben. She takes on his hobbies/interests, tries to seem more interested in politics and intellectual things (glasses too!) Something reeks of desperation from her – it always has. Like she will go to any length to keep her Martha Stewart household together. I always remember that Dinner for Five video and her obvious infatuation with Ben. That and her attitude toward Gary Busey at an awards show. Those showed her true colors as a person in my mind. Sorry – no, I don’t know them – just my opinion.

  39. PyrLover says:

    bennydimply boy! Love it. I have no feeling either way, but it is nice not to see conspicious spending and over the top famewhoring for getting knocked up, whether your 16 or 40. Go Jen!

  40. Dredz says:

    Ben is looking at the whole J.Lo divorce fiasco and breathing a HUGE sigh of relief… LOL
