An inside source claims that the pregnancy was a complete surprise to both Garner and Affleck. Although Affleck is back in the dating game, he reportedly told Garner that he will support her throughout the pregnancy and continue to co-parent.
These rumors have not been verified by either Affleck or Garner. Instead, a source close to the couple told Gossip Cop that Affleck has not contacted Ouzounian. The insider also revealed that the former nanny isn't trying to get back with the Batman v Superman star and their romance is not back on in any way.
Whatever the truth, it is clear that things are over between Affleck and Garner. Despite all the rumors of a potential reconciliation, Daily Mail reports that the two officially filed for divorce in a Los Angeles court, ending their marriage of 12 years. The couple filed the papers a few weeks ago without lawyers and requested joint custody of their three kids.
Affleck and Garner filed the papers together, and it appears as though the split is amicable. The pair did not specify any spousal payments in the petition, but a judge might award an amount before the paperwork is finalized.
Affleck and Garner shocked the entertainment world when they announced their split in June of 2015. They remained cordial towards each other in public and Affleck continued to live in the same house. They also took multiple family trips together, which only further strengthened the rumors that they were trying to work things out.
They shattered those rumors, however, when they filed for divorce in April. It isn't clear why they waited so long to make things official, but it may have had something to do with their assets. The two did not have a prenuptial agreement and are worth millions, which means they are both entitled to an equal share.
Affleck and Garner met while working on the 2001 film Pearl Harbor when Affleck was engaged to Jennifer Lopez. Affleck didn't fall for Garner until they did Daredevil a few years later. They had three kids during their marriage – Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5. The divorce is expected to be finalized within six months, depending on how long financial negotiations last.
