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.
Ã¢â¬ÅFriends are expecting an announcement very soon that Jen is pregnant,Ã¢â¬Â a source told RadarOnline.com.
Friends said Garner, 44, got sick of the Batman v Superman starÃ¢â¬â¢s drinking and gambling Ã¢â¬â and an alleged affair with their nanny was Ã¢â¬Åthe straw that broke the camelÃ¢â¬â¢s back.Ã¢â¬Â
But they never filed divorce papers. Ã¢â¬ÅJen has played Ben like a fiddle!Ã¢â¬Â said a friend. Ã¢â¬ÅShe was determined to make him Ã¢â¬Ëwalk the plankÃ¢â¬â¢ over his wild ways. She believed he would come to his senses and they could save their marriage.Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅSheÃ¢â¬â¢s always wanted another child with him. Even since they split, sheÃ¢â¬â¢s gushed publicly about how he is the love of her life,Ã¢â¬Â the source said.
Ã¢â¬ÅFirst, she let him move back onto their property, living in a guest house. TheyÃ¢â¬â¢ve continued taking family vacations, spending all the important days in their childrenÃ¢â¬â¢s lives together, even sleeping together.Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅIn many ways, BenÃ¢â¬â¢s been a lousy husband Ã¢â¬â but Jen still loves him and missed their steamy sex life!Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅWhen 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,Ã¢â¬Â the insider continued.
Pals said itÃ¢â¬â¢s been GarnerÃ¢â¬â¢s plan all along to keep him guessing, then hit him with the news that sheÃ¢â¬â¢s pregnant.Ã¢â¬ÅI think they both hoped the split would be the big, final wake-up call that would turn Ben into the husband theyÃ¢â¬â¢re convinced he can be!Ã¢â¬Â the insider told Radar. Ã¢â¬ÅJen loves being a mother, and she wants a real family, not two parents living apart and sharing custody.Ã¢â¬Â
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?!
