HOLD. THE. PHONE.
So there are a TON of rumors that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck might be getting back together, which isn’t entirely surprising. I thought after that scathing Vanity Fair piece, Jen would be done, but I get it: they have three kids together and over ten years of companionship. And on May 5th, my suspicions were confirmed: the two were spotted kissing in a hotel bar May 5 in Paris and then in London, where Affleck is filming Justice League. Now, I just thought they had history, but now, Radar thinks they have much more than that. As in, A BABY. And the oddest thing about this piece is that Radar says Jen has ALWAYS wanted another kid with Ben, which I think goes a bit to far. But a baby? That’s definitely something that could bring a very fractured separation back together.
“Friends are expecting an announcement very soon that Jen is pregnant,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
Friends said Garner, 44, got sick of the Batman v Superman star’s drinking and gambling — and an alleged affair with their nanny was “the straw that broke the camel’s back.”
But they never filed divorce papers. “Jen has played Ben like a fiddle!” said a friend. “She was determined to make him ‘walk the plank’ over his wild ways. She believed he would come to his senses and they could save their marriage.”
“She’s always wanted another child with him. Even since they split, she’s gushed publicly about how he is the love of her life,” the source said.
“First, she let him move back onto their property, living in a guest house. They’ve continued taking family vacations, spending all the important days in their children’s lives together, even sleeping together.”
“In many ways, Ben’s been a lousy husband — but Jen still loves him and missed their steamy sex life!”
“When she gave birth to Samuel in 2012, she hoped things would change, since all Ben talked about was how much he wanted a son. But he fell back into his same old bad habits,” the insider continued.
Pals said it’s been Garner’s plan all along to keep him guessing, then hit him with the news that she’s pregnant.“I think they both hoped the split would be the big, final wake-up call that would turn Ben into the husband they’re convinced he can be!” the insider told Radar. “Jen loves being a mother, and she wants a real family, not two parents living apart and sharing custody.”
This must be VERY confusing to the kids, don’t you think? And like, Jen doesn’t seem THAT calculating.
What do you think? Are we going to get a pregnancy announcement soon?!
