Jennifer Garner isn’t due for another month, might be having another girl

Here are some new photos of Jennifer Garner and her bump in LA yesterday. We’ve been saying that Jennifer is “ready to pop” for weeks now, but seriously, look at her. I don’t think she’s got that much longer, do you? Us Weekly’s sources say she’s due in late February or early March – so she’s got a month longer? That can’t be right! Jennifer and Jessica Simpson are like the anti-Beyonces. They carry to large so fast, people just don’t believe their due dates.

I do have to say, though, Jennifer is carrying differently with this pregnancy – her legs and her face don’t seem to have gained much weight, which I’m sure is part of some old wives’ tale about the gender of the baby. Early reports indicated that this one was definitely a boy, and considering Ben Affleck’s willingness to be publicly affectionate with Jennifer, I think many of us assumed that Ben’s physicality with his wife meant that he was finally “getting his son.” But! When Jennifer was on the Tonight Show recently, she made it sound like the gender wasn’t a sure thing:

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck’s third child may end up with the most unusual name in Hollywood if they leave it up to daughters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3.

“Our girls are working on names. At first they were definitely Disney. It was like, Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck,” Garner, 39, said on The Tonight Show Wednesday. “And then they’ve moved on. Then it was Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Smee.”

“They’re coming up with lists and coming in and saying, ‘Let’s have a baby-naming contest! Let’s have a baby-naming poll!'” the Butter star added. “They ask everyone, because they just want to know. But we’re not telling.”

Garner said she knows the sex of her baby, though she chose not to reveal it on The Tonight Show. The actress previously said she’s hoping for a little girl, but she isn’t sure if Affleck, 39, feels the same way.

“I would have thought [he wanted a boy]. At first I think I really thought so,” Garner told host Jay Leno. “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.”

Garner, who announced her third pregnancy in August, is due in late February/early March.

So Ben will be fine with another girl? He very well might be. I can sometimes have a low opinion of Affleck, but I don’t think he’s really d-bagging out on the sex of the baby. He’ll be happy with a healthy baby, a boy or a girl. Whatever it is, I’m sure it will be dimply and on parade soon enough!

    Another month? She must be having a 14 lb. baby!

    • Jess says:

      With both of my kids people told me I looked “ready to pop” from six months on. Of course, my kids were 8 lbs 8 oz and 9 lbs 6 oz, but some people just get bigger.

  2. Dawn says:

    That is how I carried my boy. I’ll be surprised it is a girl. Either way these two make beautiful babies and I’m sure this one will be no exception!

  3. Jules says:

    I’m sure if its a girl, it will have another flower name. Daisy? Rose? Lily?

  4. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Awww, its a baby and as long as its healthy then who cares if its a boy or girl.

    Its really good to see a pregnant star actually look pregnant with a big bump and glowing with it!

    Good luck to them

  5. Alexis says:

    She, Jessica Simpson, and Hilary Duff are examples of REAL pregnancies. They look bloated, uncomfortable and most importantly healthy.

    There’s NO WAY Beyonce was ever pregnant.

    • Beatrix says:

      Absolutely agreed. That woman did not give birth – anyone with a brain has got to know this.

    • novaraen says:

      I concur!! 🙂

    • cmc says:

      Errrr…anyone remember little ol’ Posh? She looked tiny and fabulous for all four of her pregnancies and carried way differently than Jen/Jessica/Hilary- doesn’t mean she wasn’t pregnant.

      At this point, I’m kind of feeling sorry for Beyonce. There’s literally nothing she can do to convince people that she gave birth to her child.

      • mln76 says:

        agreed Line up 10 pregnant women and they all carry 10 different ways. Jen isn’t even carrying the same she did in her other pregnancies. I don’t see how this is ‘proof’ of anything.

      • jellyfsh says:

        Yeah but posh is stick thin. Beyonce is very curvy, like jessica simpson, and look at the extra weight she’s put on. I have a hard time believing that Beyonce woulndn’t have gained any extra weight in her face and the rest of her body.

      • Molly says:

        But the thing is, Posh is naturally thin. Beyonce has a body that wants to be fat, but she works out and she eats well. If your pregnant, you cant really work out to much. She was so tiny, I was shocked to hear that she had her baby. She only looked about 6 months along. Who knows, she may have pretened to be pregnant to protect the surrogate. If she is at the Grammys or out in public soon, it should be clear if she was really pregnant or not.

    • kibbles says:

      Haha. Yes. Beyonce will come up in every pregnancy post until the end of time! Whenever a woman is really pregnant, it will just be more evidence to prove Beyonce wasn’t. Beyonce should learn a few things from her “experience” and try to gain a few extra pounds the next time she lies to the public about being pregnant.

  6. brin says:

    She looks so cute preggers.

  7. dorothy says:

    She seems like such a regular person. So refreshing after all the Kim Kardashian nonsense.

  8. Delta Juliet says:

    Another month? Ugh I’m uncomfortable for her lol

  9. Samigirl says:

    The only old wives tale that has held true for me is that boys give beauty (I was so hot when I was pregnant with my little guy), and girls take beauty away (my hair and skin have never been more dry, my nails are brittle, my skin is blotchy…I’m a mess.) I carried the exact same way both times, except showing a bit sooner with little miss on the way. Either way, the next Affleck baby is sure to have dimples just like the other 2 girls, and I’m sure will be a little doll as well 🙂

      • Lisa says:

        You know…that makes sense, considering baby girls are tapping into the same estrogen that Mama herself needs to stay looking spry fit and balanced!

        And with baby boys…you’re manufacturing that extra testrone…which should be LOVELY after you get past the morning sickness phase!

    • Ana says:

      I don’t know my mom looked pretty cute and healthy when she was pregnant with me (from what I can tell looking at pictures).
      Well she was carrying me, how could she not!? Just kidding…

      But everybody was convinced I was a boy, because I kicked so hard, they said I was going to be a soccer player…please I’ve had balls go through between my legs into the net…

      I think everybody should have at least a different sex child if they have more than one, my aunt was left wishing for a girl, she had 3 boys. And my grandpa was left wishing for a boy, he had 4 girls… 😛

      • Samigirl says:

        You made me lol 🙂

        Before I was showing with Emerson, I got hit on CONSTANTLY. That “glow” they talk about? I had it. I *glowed* 24 hours a day. With little miss, I’m so gahhhhh. She kicks harder than he did, btw. She’s a demanding little thing 🙂

      • Ana says:

        I’m glad I made you smile!

        I’ll have to ask my mom, maybe she can tell me more about how it made her look!

        My mom’s second pregancy made her huge even by the first month, we never got to know what the sex was though, although a psychic told me the baby was going to be a boy…

        Maybe girls take some of their mom’s beauty to make theirs grow and thus they make us look like that! Crazy theory I just invented! 😛

        Good luck with your babies! 😉

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @sami, I swore my second little boy was a girl because I got cystic acne, pregnancy carpal tunnel and sciatica! I was shocked to find out I was having another boy.

        @Lisa, I think there’s something to be said for that extra testosterone. I was constantly randy! Helped me get a little taste of the male perspective.

  10. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Don’t they say if the belly is more downward or lower, it is most likely a boy? Never been pregnant so I’m not sure about all the gender “signs.”

    • Samigirl says:

      Supposedly with a boy you carry low, yes. But, it’s just an old wives tale. I carried low with my little guy, and I’m carrying even lower with the little lady. Oh! I said above the only old wives tale that worked for me, but the Chinese Gender chart totally worked on both, also. 🙂

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @sami, the gender chart said my second would be a girl and he was a boy. That little trixter!

      • Isa says:

        Chinese gender chart was wrong with both of my kids. I had a girl-boy and it said boy-girl. But I did do an old wives tale quiz that told me I had a 61% chance of having a boy with my boy.

  11. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    I hope it’s another little girl. I firmly believe that men who dog out ladies are destined to have little girls so that they’ll have to worry about all the little dogs that will be sniffing around their daughters!

    • Samigirl says:

      When you have a boy, you only have to worry about one penis. When you have a girl, you have to worry about ALLLLLLL of them. I think you’re dead on. My dad was a MAJOR player before he adopted me, and then ended up with 2 more daughters, hehe 😉

    • bluhare says:

      Certainly true with my dad! He had two girls and still wants to think we’re virgins.

      • Samigirl says:

        You’re not, darling bluhare? Scandalous!

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        Hehehe. Ladies.

        @bluhare, my husband and I had a guest bedroom that we claimed was his (because we cohabitated before marriage). LOL. I can’t believe my father bought it, I’m sure it was just wishful thinking on his part!

  12. Forever says:

    No way in the world fakeyonce gave birth. This is what a real pregnancy looks like.

  13. Justalark says:

    I think Jennifer is adorable pregnant–she is glowing and happy–but I don’t think it’s accurate to say that her pregnancy isn’t showing in her legs.

    Her face does look as gorgeous as usual, but her thighs have really expanded, and it’s very noticeable because she always wears short sweaters, shirts, and jackets. (Jessica Alba, on the other hand, appeared much slimmer because she wore more flattering long tunics and cardigans in her last trimester.). It’s always surprising to me when I remember that Rachel Zoe is Jennifer’s stylist…

    P.S. I bet it’s a boy–Ben seems very self-satisfied and affectionate lately!

  14. Girl says:

    If she’s 40 weeks in a months time, really she could have that baby any day now as after 37 weeks, in the US at least, you are considered term and healthcare providers will not try to stop labor. I hope for her she goes into labor soon if babe is ready. That last month is really uncomfortable.

  15. Julie says:

    And who doesn’t think it’s not funny that Beyonce is staying completely out of public view while she gets her body, I mean pillow readjusted for post-preg.

  16. Diana says:

    I feel bad for Jennifer, Jessica and Hilary as Beyonce gave everyone a warped sense of what they SHOULD look like right now. All I read is how huge and “ready to pop” they are. I feel like no one has ever seen a 9 months pregnant woman before to know how big they actually are.

    Side note, remember that video of Beyonce when she hopped into an SUV bent over and head first a few days before she gave birth? I just recently saw a video of Jessica getting into a car and her fiance was helping her slide into the seat sideways. Reminded me again of the glaring differences between Beyonce and other pregnant women.

    But according to her fans she just kept herself in super awesome shape and didn’t let herself go like the others, so what do I know?

  17. Bernice says:

    As someone already mentioned, seeing JG and JS has just made me positive Beyonce was pillow stuffing and was not pregnant. Beyonce is no willowy model and she would have puffed up like these two. Plus, she was only ” pregnant” for like a minute and a half. So sad she would do that.

  18. Jess says:

    I have no doubt that Ben wants a boy – I think every guy does, if he is being honest – but maybe it has helped that his buddy Matt Damon has survived four girls!!!! Either way, Jennifer is HUGE for only 8 months. She has got to be closer than that.

  19. Tweakspotter says:


    That’s because they are actually carrying their babies.

    BTW – I carried my babygirl just like that. I don’t know what it is but girls are all wide and offsides!

  20. kelly says:

    Lucky me had an 11 POUND boy without a C-Section….42 hour labor. Whew! I was pretty big, but I don’t think the PG size always foretells the baby’s sex…either way, congrats to them and wishing them a healthy baby.

  21. Alix says:

    I wonder whether Affleck realizes that HE, not his wife, ultimately determines the sex of their baby?

    • Fatkid says:

      There’s some interesting new research that indicates baby gender is not exclusively determined by the father. It’s been a while since I read about it, but it had to do with the woman’s body being selective about the sperm permitted to impregnate. They drew some interesting preliminary conclusions regarding the woman’s perceived comfort/security in the relationship based on the findings. Not sure if I buy the relationship assumption, but it’s nice to know we might have say after all 🙂

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        Yes. That acidic cervical Ph favors x chromosomes and a more basic Ph favors y’s. The shettles method has a series of foods that you should/shouldn’t eat when you’re trying to conceive one sex or the other. There’s been limited research as to it’s effectiveness though.

      • Isa says:

        Mort is right. (Waves!!!) We were going to try the Shettles method in order to try for a boy but never got a chance.

  22. Isa says:

    I kind of hope she has a boy. I wanna see what he would look like.
    Why don’t celebrities announce the sex when they find out? I would totally slip up and say he or she.
