LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Thrice is nice for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner!
The Hollywood couple has welcomed their third child – a boy, according to People.
The baby is the couple’s first son. Ben and Jen are proud parents to daughters Violet, 6; and Seraphina, 3.
A rep for the couple first confirmed the pregnancy back in August.
Pregnancy for Jen – who was last seen on the big screen in the 2011 comedy “Arthur” – doesn’t seem to be too much of a burden.
In fact, she says it comes with certain perks.
“I always have cravings. It doesn’t matter if I’m pregnant or not! I use pregnancy as an excuse to say I’m craving ice cream and chocolate, but really, that’s just me,” she joked with Parents magazine while pregnant with Serafina.
Jen will next appear in the Disney dramedy “The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” slated to hit theaters in August 2012.
Ben, whose last big screen credits include the 2010 dramas “The Town” and “The Company Men,” will next be seen in the comedy “Argo,” based on the true story of how the CIA used a fake movie project to smuggle hostages out of Tehran during the 1979 hostage crisis.
A rep for the actor had no comment on the birth news when contacted by Access Hollywood on Tuesday.
