Jennifer Garner may be pregnant again, with a report that the actress has called off her split with Ben Affleck and decided to expand their family instead.
The couple announced last year that they were splitting up after reports that Ben had an affair with the couple’s nanny, but in the past few months there have been reports that Ben and Jen had been making efforts to work past their differences and reconcile.
Now that reconciliation may have taken a major step forward. This week’s issue of Life & Style magazine reported that Jennifer Garner is pregnant with her fourth child and that they are ready to announce it soon.
Celeb Dirty Laundry filled in some of the details.
“According to Life & Style Magazine’s inside sources close to the couple, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have called off their divorce, and Jen’s pals are certain it is because she is pregnant with her and Ben’s fourth child. One source explained to the tabloid, ‘Their friends are expecting an announcement very soon that Jen is pregnant.’
“Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck’s divorce is definitely taking longer than it should, and we totally agree that it seems like they haven’t made much progress. So, there is a chance that the couple has put the split on hold – but that doesn’t necessarily mean Garner is pregnant. Although, if she is, congrats to the couple. Hey, a baby saved Megan Fox’s marriage from divorce. Maybe it will work for Jen and Ben too!”
There are reports that Ben Affleck has been doing plenty of work to mend the broken relationship. Another source told In Touch Weekly, via India Times, that Ben’s schedule of filming this summer for the Justice League movie will give him a chance to convince Jen to give him — and their marriage — another chance.
But that source hinted that Jennifer Garner is not pregnant, and that she and Ben Affleck aren’t as close to getting back together as other reports suggest.
“Jennifer has told Ben flat-out that there is no chance she will take him back, but he just refuses to take no for an answer,” the source said.
Garner has spoken publicly about her relationship with Affleck, telling Vanity Fair last month that they remain good friends and co-parents to their three kids.
“The main thing is these kids — and we’re completely in line with what we hope for them,” Garner said. “Sure, I lost the dream of dancing with my husband at my daughter’s wedding. But you should see their faces when he walks through the door. And if you see your kids love someone so purely and wholly, then you’re going to be friends with that person.”
Garner added that she and Ben had already been split up for months by the time news leaked that he had an affair with the family’s nanny, Christine Ouzounian. Garner said the alleged affair had nothing to do with their decision to divorce, but said it was bad judgment on the part of both Ben and the now-former nanny.
While there is no confirmation that Jennifer Garner is pregnant, it’s true that she and Ben Affleck has been rebuilding their relationship, at least for the sake of their children. The couple has been seen together a number of times, including a recent trip to a church service near their community in Pacific Palisades.
