Now that she’s survived the “all day sickness” of the first trimester, expectant mom Jennifer Garner says her pregnancy is going great.
“The first trimester is just yuck,” the 39-year-old actress admits during an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. “But after that, [this pregnancy] is not a big thing – except there is one big thing. And that is, my bottom.”
The very hands-on mom to girls Violet, 5, and Seraphina, 2, went on to say, “You know how once you have kids you never ever pee by yourself again? At least one of them is always in there with you at all times. So the other day… [Violet] is in there with me and all of the sudden she went, Oh Mom, we have to have a talk…She said, ‘Mom, your bottom has gotten so big that your panties don’t even begin to cover it.”
“I said, ‘It’s called a thong, you wear it when you’re a grown up. She was like, ‘Uh, that is so gross!”
As for the gender of the baby on the way, Jen says she and her husband Ben Affleck will be happy either way.
“It would be so weird to have a boy and cool and different. And I’m sure it would be fun for Ben he likes baseball and all that stuff. But a third girl, three girls is a great way to grow up,” muses the Valentine’s Day star, who has two sisters herself.
She reveals, though, that her handsome hubby is as comfortable playing “baby doll” as he is baseball thanks to their darling daughters.
“My husband plays a lot of baby doll. He is really cute. I will walk in and he will be sitting on a little chair. He’s so tall! And he’ll have a baby doll and I’ll say, ‘What are you doing?’ ‘I’m watching Frankie (the baby doll) here.”
As for sisters Violet and Sera, the doting mama says that they’re thinking more about baby names than they are gender.
“They don’t really care about the gender as much as long as we name it what they it to be named,” Jen admits, going on to list a few of their favorites. “Ralphie, Frankie, Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck. Rosemarie.. Daisy Duck Affleck. I can see us going that way.”
Jennifer and Ben, who celebrated their 6th wedding anniversary earlier this year, shared the happy news of the pregnancy just last month.
