    awww she’s a perfect mom and now another girl! Was hoping for a little boy, but, as long as it’s healthy…Violet is a clone of Jen, wonder if this baby will be too. All children should always look as happy as Violet!

    They should name her after Ben’s grandmother. They did that with Violet and Violet is such a pretty name! Congratulations to the most beautiful couple! I love them! I wish them,Violet and new daughter all the happiness and health in the world! :)

  • ~C~

    Lily (my favorite choice)

  • Mara

    Best buddies Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are creating harems! It feels like girls are best for Ben Affleck since he appears more cerebral and less active.

  • Jerry

  • mandy

    daisy, cherry blossom, iris, rose, lily, ginger, marguerite??

  • Jamie

    COngrats to them…another adorable daughter…i think they should name her Gracie Rose Affleck…that would be cute Ben, Jen, Violet and Gracie

  • marie

    i love: angelica, hazel and lily rose but i think the last one’s taken!

  • nicolem

    I’m kind of shocked. I thought she was going to have a boy! Congrats Jen, Ben, and Violet ! I wonder if they will go with another flower name. Lily would be so nice!

  • Hmmm

    Awww, how sweet! I’m sure they won’t be selling baby pics to the highest bidder, and I love that about them!

  • debra77

    Hmmm @ 01/06/2009 at 9:56 pm

    Yeah, but that is because there would not be a bidding war for the pics. I like Jen, but the world in not waiting to see the baby. I’m sure she will be cute… her mommy is… but just because a celeb sells the pics, does not make them bad parents. If I had millions of people wanting to see my baby, and I could take that money and help someone, then I don’t think that is a bad trade off. And regarding the celebs who did not sell their baby pics.. it is funny how we see their kids in the press all the time.. I could make a scrap book on the media coverage of Suri, Violet, Sunday Rose, Harlow, Honor Marie and others… For people who claim they wanted to keep their kids out of the press… Well it is obvious to a blind man, that they want these kids seen.. and I am sure the mags and papz are happy that they get to plaster these kids pictures in their magazine each week.

    Then for some of the celebs who have sold their pics, we very rarely see their kids. Who is pimping who..

    But back to Jen and Ben… Cute couple.. Cute family.. happy for them.

  • Britney Spears
