New daddy Ben Affleck spoils his little Violet

Benaffleck According to the latest issue of Life & Style, new dad Ben Affleck is head over heels for his new leading lady, Violet Anne. An insider says Ben constantly emails photos of his little one to friends and family, and he videotapes her incessantly.

Ben is said to be a very hands-on dad. "When Violet cries, Ben runs to her," the insider says, "He won’t let her cry for a second. He cuddles her, rocks her and soothes her with gentle kisses." Not only is Ben absolutely in love with his new baby girl, he is also said to be obsessively overprotective of her. The insider says Ben is very choosy about who can visit baby Violet for fear of illness, primarily the flu.

On another note, little Violet is said to have Jennifer Garner‘s full lips and famous dimples. She also has brown eyes, just like mom and dad.

I don’t consider it “obsessively overprotective” to try to keep germs away from a baby that is less than a month old. I consider it sane! You can read a lot of material that will tell you to protect a small baby away from crowds and from too many visitors, but those who got turned away (probably this “insider”) tend not to be very understanding. There will be lots of opportunities to see the baby when her immune system is a little more robust!

I’m one of Ben Affleck’s fan and i’m a Filipina. After Ben’s failed relationship with J.Lo, i was really very happy and i used to like J.lo but i hate her now. Sorry but im a fortright person and its just that Ben is a good man and he deserves to be with someone like Jennifer Garner. They are perfect couple and im happy for Ben. Anyway, if you happen to see Ben, tell him I love him!!!
