Violet Affleck: Open Sesame!

Violet Affleck: Open Sesame!

Violet Affleck pushes open the door while getting picked up from school by her dad, Ben Affleck on Friday in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 3-year-old was also a bit shy as she covered her eyes at one point.

After the birth of Jen and Ben‘s second daughter on Tuesday, Violet must be getting ready to be a big sister at home!

Former Alias co-star and family friend Victor Garber recently reported, “I talked to her and she’s doing great! I just marvel at how they’re being brought up. What a wonderful mother Jennifer is, and what a joy it is to be around that family.”

  • Jana

    Violet is soooo cute! I just LoVe this kid! Can’t wait to hear what they named her little sister!!!! They seem to like older names because both Violet and Anne sound like older names.

    wow such a lovely kid.

  • Lisa #2….

    Does anyone know if Jen and the new baby are home yet? Hopefully Violet got to visit her mom and new little sister at the hospital. I wonder how much Violet understands at her age?

  • benjen

    That child isn’t being shy. She is blocking the flash bulbs going off in her eyes.

  • Sarah May

    Darn, I thought there was news on her little sisters name. Its like the whole world is already expecting a crazy hollywood name. Watch the baby have this totally normal name after all the wait and wondering. They’re killing me here with all the suspense!

  • Kate

    Only 3 years old and already acting like a diva, she looks like a spoilt little brat.

  • ASHI

    CONGRATS !!!!

  • e.

    Kate, you’re an idiot.

    Why is it that Victor Garber has to go shooting his mouth off about them? Oh wait, because it’s the only way he can get his name mentioned. Nice.

    But close the dustbin, please.
    IT SMELLS, folks!!

  • ali

    such a cutie!! i think shes a mini me of jen!

  • lisa

    How sweet that Victor is so proud of them. He must be a great surrogate grandpa!!

  • Olivia

    The longer they keep the name of the baby secret the more money they will get when they do a deal with People/OK/US Weekly for the name and pictures.

  • lolita

    The baby’s name is Victoria, after Victor Garber the godfather

  • chase

    I feel sorry for Jennifer Garner, since Alias was canceled because of abysmal ratings, all she’s been able to get is supporting roles in movies that have tanked at the box office, Forbes named her the most overpaid movie star who never makes a profit for the stuidos. Her acting career has never really taken off, she reminds me of Denise Richards pimping her children, because that is the only way she can stay famous.

  • FPD

    The baby’s name is Victoria, after Victor Garber the godfather
    ————————————————————————————

    She named the baby after her gay actor friend?? What an insult that would be to her real father.

  • nancy S. and paul M.

    Wow, this poor kid….
    Can u imagine your Mom has a new baby and the hoard of Paps show up?
    Not cool.

  • mandy

    kate you’re so stupid!
    she’s not a diva, she’s 3 you stupid b*tch, she can’t see because of the pictures idiot.

  • buckeyegurl

    Cutie pies, both of them!

  • Adoring Fan

    Aww so nice to see sweet Violet and her papa. Can’t wait to see mom and hear the name of her little sister. Love this beautiful family.

  • ice

    Violet is spoilt? If anything, along with her sister, they’ll be the only adjusted and normal celeb children in Hollywood

  • Moon

    Casey and Matt’s children will be the normal and adjusted non hollywood children while Violet and Gonaria will grow up to be new Paris and Nicky of Hollywood.

  • Violets Auntie

    Spoilt? Go back to school and learn to spell before you make such crass remarks. Spoiled is the correct spelling.

    I think I’ve had enough of papz pictures of this family. Leave them alone.

  • Holly

    gosh Violet is soooooooo cuteeeeee(so is her dad!:p)

  • Familyfan

    Majority rules – Kate your an idiot

    Adore this family, they are not pimping their child, they are not asking the paps to follow them around in fact would love it if they didn’t. Because they are both popular and together, the public wants to see them, so all these websites clamor to buy the pics from the paps. The paps know that so hound them even more than other celebs. They are the paps meal ticket, but did not ask to be. Can’t wait to see the new babe and hear her name……….see its people like me that keep them in the paps sights……….but I can’t help myself……….love them together, since Daredevil

  • The cow jumped over the Moon

    Kate is not the only one. Apparently, the cow jumped (and relieved her bowels) over the Moon.

  • Rachel

    “Spoilt” is the correct term in other English-speaking countries (you know, like the UK, Australia), ignoramous. I bet you are Violet’s Auntie; you certainly share her mommy’s stupidity.

    And the delay in releasing baby #2′s name is meant to “kill” you; they are drawing it out for the maximum amount of publicity.

    And see how normally Violet behaves in front of the paps without her mommy there to try to make it a photo op (you know, like with a kiss or something equally silly)? Now maybe you understand Suri’s entirely normal reaction to the paps a little better?

  • sharonxxx

    It was leaked the other day from sources that the name is Chase Milan Garner Afleck!

  • g.rocks

    yes, it’s been heard that the new baby is Chase Milan! cute name!

  • Spoilt or spoiled?

    Violets Auntie @ 01/10/2009 at 5:37 am Spoilt? Go back to school and learn to spell before you make such crass remarks. Spoiled is the correct spelling.

    ————————–

    Actually, both forms are correct. According to Oxford’s:
    http://dictionary.cambridge.org/define.asp?key=76750&dict=CALD

    “spoil (CHILD)
    verb [T] spoiled or spoilt, spoiled or spoilt
    DISAPPROVING
    to allow a child to behave exactly as it wants to, usually so that it becomes selfish and lacking in care and respect for other people:
    Mr Harvey, unable for once to do exactly as he wanted, sulked just like a spoilt child”.

    That said, I don’t see how Violet fits the description. She doesn’t look like a spoilt child at all.

  • Shawna

    No way would they name a baby Chase Milan after naming her sister Violet Anne. Anyone who believes that is an idiot.

  • Me

    Lovely little girl, lovely family, now leave them be to enjoy this new time in their lives. Darling Violet doesnt papz at school. I hear LA is going to pass a law against it soon.

  • Me

    * I meant to say doesn’t NEED papz at school

  • Fallon

    I’m guessing that they may give the baby another flower name like Rose or Daisy, etc.

  • ben/jen fan

    Spoiled brat? Why becasue she closes her eyes/shields her eyes?

    You can look at the expression on Ben’s face and see that they are both being effected by the flash. Ever seen a video of the paps taking a photo of a celeb? There are so many flashes going off that they can barely see. They are videos of Ben and Jen, with Ben saying that he can’t see because of the flash.

    Why should they release the name? So that people who call Violet names can make fun of the new baby? When Casey and his wife had their new baby, the name wasn’t known for 6-8 months.

    Anyone who thinks that Ben and Jen will release photos to People/ok/ etc. are crazy. Just not going to happen. Not everyone has to do that. Matt Damon didn’t do pictures of his kid for mags, nor Hally Berry, and a ton more. Does’t mean that they coulnd’t have had a deal if they wan’t, but they just choose to try and keep that private.

    Sure I would like to know the name, but is it information I HAVE to have? NO. Besides the way everyone trashes a 3 year old child, if I were a celeb. parent, I would release the name either.

    It is one thing to say things about a celeb. but about a child, not cool. Same as there were pics of Violet this week at a park with her Nanny, w/o either Ben or Jen. The paps should not be taking pics of a minor child w/o their parents. Again, not cool………..borders on dangerous. Thanks to JJ for not posting them.

  • someone

    I agree with #31/Shawna. Chase Milan is sooooo not Jennifer. lol I would be impressed though if she did name her daughter that. I expect an ultra-tranditional name from Jennifer. Anyway, the birth certificate will get filed; it’s public record so it doesn’t matter if the Afflecks “release” the name. And we’ll hear from Ben how great his family is since he has a movie opening early next month.

    I’m confused as to why Victor Garber is always gushing to the press about Jennifer. Does he approach them or does the media call him up? I loved him on Alias but all his gushing is getting annoying. He acts like Jennifer invented spending time with your kids.

    AND I really can’t see “Chase” for a girl.

  • Happy

    That is one beautiful kid! So happy that ben came to his senses and married a beautiful european Jennifer.

  • laura

    Violet is so CUTE!

  • ellie

    Congratulation Ben Jen & Violet with your new addition. Wonderful family…

  • Kelly

    So cute! I would cover my eyes, too, if all those flashes were going off…would I be a spoilt or spoiled or whatever brat? There are so many idiots in the world…why are they all here? This is a great family! I think it is so sweet that Victor Garber is involved in their lives, and I think Chase is a pretty, albeit unexpected, choice…if that’s what it is.

  • Cute overload

    I love this couple they are like Jolie & Pitt! Gardner & Affleck are the second Hollywood Royals. Can’t wait to see the beautiful little sister for Violet. I know Violet is thrilled, she is the happiest little girl I have ever seen, always smiling.

  • Me

    Where did everyone get the name “Chase”? Who are these “sources”. I haven’t seen anything about the name at all. They probably want to go Casey’s route and not release it at all. It really isnt anybody’s business, I agree.

    By the way #37 Someone, Victor Garber is probably called up by magazines to get quotes since he is very close to the family and he isnt afraid of talking to the press (although maybe too much–remember he let everybody know she was pregnant!)

  • BECKY SMITH

    Who came up with Chase Milan.. for her name … not the Afflecks!!
    That is for sure!!! When you see Victor Garber all the publicity goes
    back to Alias and Jen..not now!! Not until they announce the name of their daughter … will people now for sure so stop calling the DAUGHTER CHASE MILAN… STUPID NAME WHO EVER CAME UP WITH IT NOT BEN OR JEN THAT IS FOR SURE..

  • XXX

    JJ did post the pics of Violet at the park with the nanny:

  • Sabrina

    I agree with you Ben/Jen fan …everything you wrote is true. And I wish people would stop making fun of Jennifer and Ben just because they carry Violet. If there were paps, who are strangers to Violet, taking pics of my kid all the time, I would want to protect her, too. I’ve seen videos of papparazzi and they scare me! Can you imagine what it does to a little 3 year old?

  • Love it

    I hope this lovely family stays together forever, they are so well-suited to one another. Ben looks like a big Poppa Bear with his cub.

  • lakers fan in boston

    she’s as cute as suri =]
    hope she likes her new sister
