Hollywood stars Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are reportedly trying to make their relationship work despite filing for divorce days after their tenth anniversary in June. Rumors have swirled that the couple is trying to work on their marriage because Garner is pregnant with their fourth child. The pregnancy rumors further exploded when the former “Alias” actress was photographed wearing an oversized top.
When the starlet was running errands in Los Angeles Monday, she appeared to be hiding a burgeoning baby bump, Hollywood Life reported Tuesday. But it’s hard to tell if she’s actually with child, since the billowy shirt she chose to wear for the day hid her midsection. For all spectators know, her tummy could be as taut as ever.
Is the shirt bohemian chic or maternity? Sources who spoke to OK! magazine would claim the latter. “She called one of her best friends and just broke down,” an "insider" told the mag in an exclusive report last week. “But no one is sure if she’s confirmed it with a pregnancy test, much less told Ben, because she’s so secretive.”
The divorce hasn’t been finalized, so there’s still a chance the couple could reconcile. “Ben and Jen have been spending a lot of time together, and they’ve decided to keep working on their relationship,” the source said. “They want to see where the process takes them.”
Though Garner and Affleck, both 43, are trying to make things work, Christine Ouzounian, his reputed mistress and the family’s former nanny, reportedly wants to write a tell-all book about him. “He’s afraid she’ll use anything that he’s ever told her against him,” the insider reportedly told OK! in a different story. “Ben’s even worried Christine may have recorded some of their conversations.” The person added: “Christine is very upset and says Ben should be worried. In her mind, this is far from over.”
Neither Garner nor Affleck has addressed the rumors. They share three children together: Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.
