Big sisters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3, must be so excited about their baby brother!!

Jen shared that initially, Violet and Seraphina were suggesting Disney inspired names for the baby.

“It was like, Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck. And then they moved on. Then it was Peter Pan, Captain Hook,” she laughed.

So the kids have that Hyphen-Name thing? Garner-Affleck?

I miss the old days where there was no hyphenated last names.

@#3 No, he’s Samuel Garner Affleck, Garner as a name.
I’m so happy for them, finally a boy to the family :)
I hope he got looks out of his daddy :D

No, I think they just chose Garner as the middle name, which is cute.

Also, hyphenated last names are NOT a hollywood trend! LOL they’ve existed for a pretty damn long time in history…………

Thank God for a normal celeb name! Suck it Blue Ivy hahahahah

BK there is no hyphen Garner is his middle name… Most women do that
To keep their name in the family!

Thank you Ben just wish to find out the weight of the baby! Does he look like Jen Or Ben!

OHHHHH – Making Garner the middle name is a very clever thing.

I appreciate you clearing that up for me. :)

I like the name “Samuel”. A nice & lovely, NORMAL name. They thought about their kid’s future, good parents there.

Congrats to them. And congrats on picking a name that won’t get the child teased at school!

I wanna see what this baby looks like, who cares about Byonce’s little Blue G0rilla.

Congrats to them! Glad they gave the kid a normal name. Can’t wait to see pictures of him.



Finally a boy! Haha! I’m happy for them, they deserve the best!

The Divorce announcement will come after his next film release.

I’ve only heard one pack of celebrity kids with hyphenated last names- The Jolie-Pitt’s- so I don’t think Garner is a last name, rather his middle. Yay to a NORMAL name but it’s VERY common. Violet is as well I guess, so apparently their middle child- Seraphina- is the only one with a “not normal” name. I wonder how big he was, considering she was pregnant for like EVER.

Congratulations, I love the baby’s name..can’t wait to see him..

Samuel, not Sam, you idiot

At least she WAS pregnant, unlike Fakeyonce and her 5-month pregnancy lol

congrats ben and jen they are my fav hollywood couple they have the most adorable little girls and they are so humble and grounded love them :)
