Uncle Ben loves nephew Indiana Affleck

06/15/2005 at 10:38 AM ET

Here’s Ben, Indiana, dad Casey, and mom Summer Phoenix out and about in Canada. Summer loves her sling, she’s wearing it in almost every photo I’ve seen of her and Indiana! I love the pic of him holding Ben’s hand. Photos via LimeLight.

If anyone cares; Ben is carrying a bag from Chapters – Chapters/ Indigo is a huge Canadian chain of bix box book stores.

From the posters behind them it looks they were in Montreal where I live! Montreal is becoming such a hot spot for celebrities lately – probably because they aren’t as hounded by fans here (although someone did take this pic, so maybe not!)

hey! just wanted to bring this to the attention of the editors of this page-Indiana is a girl, right? so shouldn’t the title of the posting read “uncle ben loves NIECE indiana affleck” ??

Jennifer on

No, they got the headline right. Indiana is a boy and I believe his middle name is August.

This is a comment for ben. Its great that he loves his nephew and its like a practice for your un-born child. Hes making a good impression on becoming a parent. I think Ben will make a fantastic father.

I keep hearing comments by people who think indiana is a name for a girl. except for it ending in a vowel, it seems very masculine to me, personally. Maybe it is just because I am an 80’s child and I think ” Indiana Jones.”…. :o)

Well it seems that the Ben and Jen team is taking in all the sights of canada’s major cities. Jennifer Garner is shooting a movie until the end of July in Vancouver and Ben Affleck was in Toronto shooting something else recently. Not sure what I have a friend who worked on the set and our chat got cut short!

Heather – that is who she is named after. She is actually named after the character because Summers brother, River Phoenix, enjoyed playing the young Indiana Jones in the movie. It is a homage to River.I suppose it is failry ‘masculine’ – but the Phoenix’s arent known for onventional names! August is the month that River was born in. Very cute, i think.

Jennie on

Havana – Indiana is a boy – and a really cute one at that!!

Are Summer and Casey married?

Ally on

Summer and Casey are engaged, but have not married. I think the August in the baby’s name is for the month he was conceived.

Sarah, CBB Editor on

And it’s also the month River was born. So maybe there’s a double meaning.

Shan on

And isnt Indiana after Rivers role in the movie?
