Christine Ouzounian is reportedly pregnant, news that has sent Ben Affleck rushing back to Atlanta in what insiders say is a desperate attempt to get in touch with Jennifer Garner.
Reports emerged this week that Ouzounian, the family's former nanny and Affleck's alleged mistress, is pregnant after her brief affair. While insiders in Affleck's camp deny the pregnancy reports, Ben is now reportedly rushing to be with Garner in Atlanta in an attempt to stop the rumors.
Us Weekly reported that Affleck flew to Georgia to see his estranged wife after she stopped responding to his text messages. A source said Jen sees his affair with Ouzounian as "the ultimate betrayal."
"Ben wants Jen to deny his relationship with Christine," another source tells Us. "At this point, she wants nothing to do with Ben."
In the wake of the pregnancy rumors, a picture has emerged of Christine Ouzounian as both a manipulative "home wrecker" and a kind-hearted and well-liked friend. A source told Radar Online that Ouzounian fell for Affleck when he and Jen Garner quietly separated and then hatched a plan to get pregnant.
"By then, Christine was planning to get pregnant by Ben — and was trying to seduce him!" a source told the outlet. "She wanted to be in the 'family way' real bad!"
But others who knew Christine from her hometown of Santa Monica, California, remember her as a "goody two shoes."
The New York Post's Page Six reported the following.
"Christine's upbringing was typical — she attended Santa Monica High School (which locals call 'Samo') with her twin sister, Caty, and graduated in 2005. The 'spunky' and 'good-hearted' teen played soccer and was well-liked enough to attend a 10-year reunion two weekends ago, a source told Page Six Wednesday.
"'She's like a spunky personality … she's good-hearted, smiling a lot, she's quirky,' said the source, who is close with both Christine and Caty."
The source added that Christine Ouzounian was engaged while she attended Arizona State University but broke it off when she learned about his drug problem.
For his part, Ben Affleck has vehemently denied rumors of an affair with Christine Ouzounian, even going so far as to threaten a lawsuit against Us Weekly for first reporting on the rumor.
"You shouldn't be able to hide behind 'blind sources' and attempt to destroy families going through a difficult time. The tabloid [Us Weekly] decided to construct stories in order to sell magazines. It's like story time in kindergarten. It's shameful and desperate," a rep for the actor told Page Six.
But sources say that Affleck is still in touch with the family's former nanny and has been paying $1,500 a night for her to stay at the Hotel Bel Air.
"Ben has given her enough money to cover all her bills and expenses, plus spending money, for at least the next three months," a friend told In Touch.
The outlet added that Christine Ouzunian may still have plans to be with Ben Affleck once his divorce is finalized.
"Christine has been calling and texting Ben nonstop. She's in love with him and is telling friends that she would marry Ben the minute his divorce is finalized."
For his part, Ben Affleck has not directly responded to reports that Christine Ouzounian is pregnant.
