Jennifer Garner is not pregnant, but her pumpkin might be

Happy last week of October 2020, Celebitches, and welcome to our next round of What’s in Jennifer Garner’s Womb! Poor Jen is doing her best on Instagram to post some light-hearted, wholesome content and can’t seem to avoid people asking whether she’s knocked up or not. Just for context, let’s remember that Jen is 48, has been broken up from her last serious relationship for a few months now, and her ex-husband is supposedly moving in and on the verge of prosing to his younger girlfriend. The last time Wombgate happened, Jen was just trying to introduce us to her uncle’s cows when her fans were all, ‘hey, is that a baby bump?’ And she was like, ‘who, the cow? Wait, me?! No, it’s pizza, relax.’ This time, Jen tried to show off her pretty impressive pumpkin carving skills, and lo and behold, people looked right past the pumpkin to the message:

It didn’t take long for people to start commenting on what was Jen really trying to tell us with this post. Us reported that one commenter asked, “Wait … are you pregnant?” while another repeated, “Does this mean there is a little Jennifer [coming]?” Even when I clicked on the post, the first comment that came up was, “I thought this was a pregnancy announcement for a hot second 😭😂”. Jen responded to her fans and other inquiring minds with, “STILL NOT HAVING MORE BABIES. Good grief, I didn’t even see it, I just saw matching smiles.” On the cow post, I was rather upset that someone asked Jen about her midsection and still think they should’ve known better. Here, however, at least I understand. I mean, I wouldn’t have jumped to that conclusion given Jen’s multiple comments on the subject, knowing her relationship status, etc., but, this, just going on appearances alone, could resemble a pregnancy announcement. (That said, any actual fan of Jen’s should have known not to comment on it.) And it’s too bad that this turned into the sequel to Is Mamma Jen PG? because it’s a super cute pic and Jen’s right, she and the pumpkin are vibing. So did she plan the controversy? I don’t think so. I honestly think Jen would rather get the saccharine-sweet, aw-shucks attention than repeated womb-watch.

And I know people hate when moms say they totally understand what other moms are trying to say but in this case, I really think I do. That large pumpkin is a house. The small pumpkin is Jen, alone, smiling. This is not a pregnancy announcement, this is Jen fanaticizing about having the whole house to herself once this GD quarantine is finally over.

    You’d have to be a moron to think JG is pregnant. People are total idiots. But if she was 10 years younger and preg it’s literally no f-ing anyone’s biz. I’m not a fan, she made a career of trading up and cheating along the way but still. Stop talking about women’s bodies. It gets embarrassing this idiotic baby talk. Sorry I didn’t read the article so I might be over reacting 😂😂 as someone whose reproduction has been discussed ad nauseum, I feel it

  2. Astrid says:

    I wouldn’t speculate but I could see how someone might think she’s making an announcement, the way she’s holding two pumpkins.

    I just finished watching “Alias” for the first time (not sure why I never watched it before, just didn’t). She perfectly balanced being a total badass with also being very vulnerable. I’ve always enjoyed her in her movies but I definitely saw in that series what made her a real star. Not to mention her chemistry with Michael Vartan and Bradley Cooper was off-the-charts (I wanted her with Cooper’s character more than Vartan’s tbh). Anyway…even though she mostly gets a lot of slack around here because of her relationships I really like her and think her responses to the pregnancy questions have been to-the-point but with a little humor, while not getting super defensive about it. That might not last if people keeping pushing it, but so far I think she’s been taking it in stride.

    Yikes. I mean, she’s 48. She outright has said no more children. I guess because motherhood has become her brand, people assume pregnancy? It’s a crazy conclusion.

  5. Jessa says:

    Its a pumpkin. In a little pumpkin house. With windows. Houses don’t get pregnant.

  6. tempest prognosticator says:

    I recently saw her interviewed on PBS, I forget the name of the show. I never had an opinion about her one way or the other, but I came away from it really liking her.

  7. Anony83 says:

    She’s almost FIFTY and has multiple kids and people are genuinely watching her WOMB?

  8. Boo says:

    I follow her and saw this yesterday and it never occurred to me to wonder if she was pregnant. The larger pumpkin is clearly a house for the smaller pumpkin. Duh.

    • Lena says:

      I didn’t think of pregnancy either when I saw the picture but some women seem to have it on their brain. A lot of women judging by all the ones that admitted they thought she was doing a pregnancy reveal. Like the writer said, If you know anything about her you know she’s said for the last seven years or so no more babies for her. Believe her people!

  9. Sass says:

    The larger pumpkin has windows, it’s clearly a house. Pregnant bodies don’t have windows. 🤷🏼‍♀️

  10. anniebel says:

    She looks so so good for her age, i think people often forget shes 48.

  11. Nottoday says:

    She likes cabins. She posts it all the time on her IG. The pumpkin is in a cabin. That’s the vibe.

  12. Carolnr says:

    This is at least twice now that Jen has said that she is not having any more children. & has been pretty emphatic about it! She actually responded to a total stranger on IG to try to shut down the conversation! She is a single parent trying to raise 3 children during a pandemic…I think that is the last thing on her mind!
