Jennifer Garner Bumps It Up

Hands clasped under her belly, Jennifer Garner perused the aisles of Lakeshore Learning Materials on Monday afternoon, leaving the store with a cart full of art supplies! The actress, 36, then made her way to her daughter’s Santa Monica preschool, where she picked up 3-year-old Violet Anne.

Jennifer and husband Ben Affleck — who were voted "Couple Most Likely to Make It to 2018" by PEOPLE readers — expect their second child in the coming weeks.

We just updated the Jennifer Garner’s All-American Maternity Style Gallery — check it out!

Jennifer looks good pregnant, she looks ready any minute now. I think a little boy she will have. Violet looks exactly like her mother, just blonde.

I give her just shy of 4 more weeks. I can’t wait!

Stephany on

She’s so cute! I can’t wait for this baby! 🙂

I hope for the couple to make it a lifetime if only for Violet and her new sibling! I am aware how pressuring Hollywood can be but so far I think Jen makes a wonderful job as a mother and wife! They are a happy family and so ready to expand with lil Violet not so much lil anymore :o) Maybe a X-mas baby? ;o)

Ben said on Access Hollywood
that they are having their
baby in January…

So Violet gets one more Christmas with her parents before her sibling comes along

Totally goofy comment, but I wonder what is causing Jennifer to have that suprised, sort of disgusted face in the first picture?

Lynn on

I can’t wait until Jennifer has the baby. I bet it’ll bet a boy.

Ashley on

Wow I really think Violet looks like Ben, same eyes and face shape. Too cute!

Colleen on

This family is so beautiful…and DOWN TO EARTH! I think Violet looks totally like Jenn…but if you look close, she has Ben’s shape eyes! Such a gorgeous little girl!

I think it’s a baby boy, too. How exciting that would be for them to they have one of each? I love this family!

Lacey on

I think it’s another girl. She looks great!

Ann on

I think it’s another girl. Let’s make a poll and vote :p

Heather on


just a guess, but maybe that yet another camera is being shove in their faces is responsible for her expression.

Lindsay Dyess on

Does anyone know what kind/style purse she is caring?

FC on

I love her top. It’s cute, and Jen is as well.

Violet cracks me up, though, always having something of her mother’s in her hands. First, the car keys, now her cell phone. That devious look reads, “And soon, I will conquer the world!”

I wouldn’t be surprised if she did. 😉

Jen looks like she can blow any minute! Pregnancy certainly suits. I can’t wait til she or he arrives 🙂 Maybe it will arrive on my birthday Jan 2nd! Although I highly doubt it though. I have a feeling she’ll have it before then.

Vanessa on

Boy or girl, I can’t wait.

My 14 month old nephew has either my mobile phone in his hand (which I then call so it vibrates and lights up) or the remote control for the TV, which then mysteriously disappears!

It’s hard to believe Violet is 3 yrs old. How fast the time flew by. Even though she has grown so much, I still see a lot of that sweet baby girl I fell in love with 3 yrs ago. I know her little sister or brother will most likely be just as adorable. Seriously, I am so ready to met that little person. Jen looks great and I totally adore this charming little family.

Jennifer is ALL belly …. she looks like she is about ready to pop! ….. Violet is just a cutie in this picture (like every other picture lol) and I agree that while Violet has Jennifer’s face she has Ben’s eyes.
I love Jen’s shirt. I absolutely love Jen pregnant; She just makes such a beautiful pregnant woman well her, Reese Witherspoon and Rhea Durham are my 3 favorite pregnancy celebrites (does that make sense????)!

CelebBabyLover on

Wow, Violet looks so grown up here! Anyway, I have always thought that Jen’s due date is in January, given the fact that this pregnancy became obvious and was announced later than Violet’s was.

I actually hope they DON’T have a Christmas baby. Can you imagine being three years old and having your mother in the hospital on Christmas Day (or even Christmas Eve, for that matter!)?

Sandi on

I actually love that she has a NORMAL cell phont – same one that I have! This family just seems so low-key.
