Within three months of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s separation, speculations arose about their reconciliation. And now, the latest rumor regarding the former couple claims that they are expecting their fourth child.
In Touch magazine, in its latest issue, reported that Garner was “in the early stages of pregnancy” and that she still planned to go ahead with the divorce, Hollywood Life reported Wednesday. The report came while Garner was in Atlanta, Georgia, shooting for her latest movie.
“Jen was shocked when she found out about the pregnancy,” a source told the magazine. “She was still committed to going through with the divorce, at least up until the past few weeks,” the insider added.
The “Gone Girl” star was “thrilled” by the pregnancy news, according to the report. He even “begged” Garner to give their relationship a second chance, the source said.
“Jen wanted a fourth child, but Ben put the kibosh on that last year. He said three was enough,” the source said. “Ben is ready to commit totally to Jen and fall in line as a faithful and dedicated family man. But they have a long way to go. Ben is thrilled at the thought of another child. He sees it as an insurance policy that Jen will give a permanent reunion serious thought.”
However, Gossip Cop reported Wednesday that Garner’s representative dismissed the report saying that the 43-year-old actress was not pregnant with the fourth baby. The couple will, in fact, maintain a friendly relation for the sake of their three children, the report added.
