Jennifer Garner is, despite being one of the most famous and admired women on the planet, kind of folksy and relatable.
Jennifer Garner married fellow actor Ben Affleck after his immensely high-profile relationship with Jennifer Lopez, and in contrast, the two relationships seem to be polar opposites. While Lopez retained much of her diva-esque vibe even after becoming a mom, Garner is frequently snapped out in yoga pants and no makeup, kids in tow and looking a lot like many of us thirty-something moms see ourselves on a grade school pick-up run. (Okay, maybe with slightly better moisturizer on her bare face.)
Garner also has some of the worries regular moms have about family size and planning. In a recent interview, Jennifer says she and Ben Affleck are pleased with their brood of three — two girls and a baby boy — but she does worry about accidents given what she perceives as her husband’s awesome virility.
According to Jennifer Garner, she too worries about a surprise baby every now and again. Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres on Ellen, Garner says:
“My husband is kind of a wonder sperm kind of guy .. You just have a look at him, you can see why …”
Garner also finds having three kids to be a bit of a challenge when it comes to organization — the star explains:
“I don’t know if it’s because [son Samuel] is a boy. I don’t know if it’s because he’s my third and I forget that I have him … You’re just dealing with two and then you think, ‘I swear I put a baby down somewhere.’ And you kind of walk through the house, ‘There you are!’ and he’s just happy as can be.”
