Name that baby
Strange celebrity baby names: How Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner came uponMinnie Mouse Affleck
Jennifer Garner is pregnant (like, really big pregnant, despite a delivery date still several months off), and the sass and sense of humor accompanying her gestation suit her quite well.
On Wednesday's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Garner discussed how she, husband Ben Affleck , and their girls, 6-year-old Violet Anne Affleck and 3-year-old Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck, feel about the new addition to their family.
While the Houston-born actress wouldn't divulge the particulars of her due date (she vaguely referred to a months-away spring delivery) or reveal the child's sex ("I'm not supposed to share it with you, Jay," said Garner), she did share a few of their daughters' name ideas for the new baby.
"Our girls are working on names. At first they were definitely Disney. It was like, Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck," Garner told Leno during the interview. "And then they've moved on. Then it was Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Smee ."
Seraphina is unusual, but can you imagine a Minnie Mouse Affleck?
Thankfully for pint-sized attention spans, the girls have again moved on.
"Now they're over it, and they're writing lists," said Garner. "They're coming up with lists and coming in and saying, 'Let's have a baby-naming contest! Let's have a baby-naming poll!'"
It sounds like the parents have decided upon a name already, but will hold off on telling the girls — and the curious public — until baby Affleck has arrived.
