It's been ten months since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their intention to divorce. So far, they haven't filed for a divorce just yet, and going by their many public outing as a family, it would appear that the couple is on the mend and rethinking their divorce. At least that's what Life & Style reported.
Life & Style reported that not only are Ben and Jen heading for a reconciliation, but they're also expecting a fourth baby together. This isn't the first time we're hearing that the couple is heading towards a reconciliation. It seems as though every time they're captured out and about as a family, a news item is run saying that they're calling the divorce off. Some sites that have reported on this news are Hollywood Life, Celebrity Dirty Laundry, and it seems as though Life & Style is double dipping because they reported this angle back in December of 2015, and again in August.

"Ten months after announcing they were ending their 10-year marriage, Ben and Jen have called off their divorce — and pals believe there's a happy reason for the reconciliation: Baby No. 4 is on the way. Their friends are expecting an announcement very soon that Jen is pregnant."

If this all sounds unbelievable, it's because it is. Gossip Cop, a site dedicated to putting gossip fires out, spoke with Jennifer Garner's rep, who denied the news of a pregnancy and a reconciliation. Garner's rep said that she and Affleck aren't expecting a baby, and that the divorce is still on.
So, which outing sparked this news item? Well, over the last few days, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were out and about with their kids running errands. The two were snapped out in Los Angeles on Sunday as they reunited for church, and earlier in the week were seen taking their son Samuel out for breakfast. This isn't the only time Affleck joined Garner at church. The two have been spotted attending Sunday mass together since announcing their separation.

"I grew up going to church every Sunday of my life, and when I did move to L.A., it wasn't something that was just part of the culture in the same way, at least in my life. But it didn't mean that I lost who I was."

Garner continued: "But there was something about doing this film and talking to my kids about it and realizing that they were looking for the structure of church every Sunday. So it was a great gift of this film that it took us back to finding our local Methodist church and going every Sunday. It's really sweet."
From the moment Ben and Jen announced that they were getting a divorce, the two remained on the same page about managing a united front for their children, Violet, 10, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 4. They've both kept up with that as they lived for months under the same roof until Affleck moved into the house next door. That said, the two will live together once more as they plan to move to London while Affleck gears up to shoot DC's Justice League.
Although the two are moving ahead with their divorce, it's easy to see that there's still love there. In her tell-all with Vanity Fair, Jennifer stated that Ben is the "love of her life." When Affleck was asked about Garner's tell-all, he seemed very supportive. In a separate interview, Affleck stated, "We're doing our very best and we're putting our kids first and that's how we're focusing on our day to day lives and we don't know what the future's gonna hold, but each step that we take is one where we prioritize our children and everything else comes second."
