Violet is absolutely adorable!!! I LOVE her smile!!! I’m sure her little brother or sister will be just as cute.

When I first saw this photo at, I thought it was Angelina Jolie. 😀 I had to take a second look to make sure who it was.

Violet is adorable as always and Jen looks good too. I can’t wait to see the baby!

Please put her down and let her walk, you are pregnant!

Eep! I must admit I cringe a little to see very pregnant Jen holding Violet…that must be really heavy for her right now. Unfortunately, it seems like the only thing she’s comfortable with given the paparazzi around them. Poor thing!

As always, they both look gorgeous. I love this family and how down to earth they seem. Jen must be a great mom.

I don’t think Jennifer would be carrying Violet if it was difficult or uncomfortable for her or unsafe for the baby. With that said ….

Jennifer looks great. Violet is adorable as always.

How about a few days’ break from posting pics of Ben or Jen picking Violet up from preschool? Give this little girl a *little* bit of privacy. Remember, it is her parents who chose fame, not her. on

I’m due with my third in three days and just carried my 2.5 year old daughter through the parking lot this morning because it was so cold…I wasn’t uncomfortable at all and didn’t feel like I or the baby was in danger. I really don’t think it’s a big deal for Jennifer to be carrying Violet around. But that’s just from my experience…everyone is different.

I can’t wait to see their new little one and find out if it’s a boy or a girl…and a name!

UggaMugga –
Congrats on your third little one! Hope you have an easy and uncomplicated labor and delivery. Mazel Tov!

I love this family so much! Violet is such a spitting image of Jen. I don’t see any of Ben in her.

I love Jen’s sunglasses. Anyone know what brand they are?

I absolutely love Jennifer Garner & fam! Jen looks stunning no matter what, with or without makeup, dressed up or down. She seems like such a humble, down to earth person and you can tell she’s an awesome mom. I do have to agree that it looks mega uncomfortable watching her carry Violet being that pregnant! Yikes!!

Oh yeah, and Violet is sooooo cute! LOVE her dimples! 🙂

Awww sweet Violet. I hope she will always be this happy go lucky little girl. To me she looks like both Ben and Jen but definitely more like Jen. I am soooo ready for the new baby. lol

I used to carry my 2 year old daughter all the time when I was pregnant with my second kid but with the third one it was totally different! I coudn’t even sit without feeling pain. So I guess it really depends on the the baby or the person like UggaMugga said. I’m thinking another girl for them what do you think?

I agree with everyone that I love this family, but I don’t know how Jennifer deals with the paparazzi every single day, especially considering she’s ready to drop soon! I for one don’t need to see (the same) daily pix of her carrying her daughter out of school; maybe if the websites stopped carrying everything available, this family would be left alone a bit?

I think these photos are probably very cheap because they are the same every day, so every blog keeps buying them even though they are the same every day.

Jennifer on

Violet is such a beautiful little girl, and she’s always so happy. That smile is just precious! 🙂

As much as I love seeing these photos, surely the paps have something better to do than go to a preschool EVERY DAY?!

In CBB’s defense, they have said before that, as long as the photo agencies publish the pictures and they are up to CBB and PEOPLE standards, then they will post them.

I actually don’t think they are being invasive by posting them, as they don’t post pictures of upset celeb kids or parents, celebs who are clearly uncomfortable that their kid’s picture is being taken, or celebs who are clearly trying to shield their kids from the paps.

Vanessa- Unfourtnately, apparently not. Back in the late Spring/early Summer of 2007, the paps also pretty much camped out at the preschool Pax and Zahara Jolie-Pitt were attending, and took pictures of them going to and from school every day.

That’s bad enough, but the Jolie-Pitts weren’t even in the US at the time! They were in Prague, Czech Republic. It made me sad to see that they apparently can’t even get some privacy in a foregin country (unless they go to a place that’s remote and/or has strict pap laws, such as Namibia or France).

All of that said, I do agree that the paps shouldn’t be camping out at Violet’s preschool. It’s bad enough that Violet has to deal with that every day, but I’m sure it can’t be easy on her classmates, either.

Sarah- I think it’s a girl, too. I just picture Jen and Ben with two little girls. 🙂

brooke on

I like this family, but why the paparazzi take pictures everyday of violet are beyond me. What is it they wanna see, she looks the same everyday lol. As for jen carrying her, she looks so long and big to be carried at this point in jen’s pregnancy
