What’s their secret?

Ben Affleck whispers sweet nothings to wife Jennifer Garner after giving her a smooch while running errands together on Wednesday in Santa Monica, Calif.

The couple, already parents to daughters Violet Anne, 5½, and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 2½, expect their third child this winter.

Possible baby names have been tossed around by their girls, whose current suggestions include “Ralphie, Frankie, Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, or Rosemarie.”

Very nice picture…cracks me up though, how people interpret pictures…how do you know he was whispering “sweet nothings”?? For all we know, he was telling her she needs to get her tubes tied…or that she needs to get her butt in the kitchen and make his meal….lol…don’t everyone get their panties in a knot…just being silly 🙂

momof3girls: It’s nice to see someone with a sense of humour every once in a while. I hope you (and more people like you) continue to post. It’s too bad you had to “explain” your post is meant to be humorous – sometimes it doesn’t take much to ruffle people’s feathers on this site.

When is Jen due?

Though I love this family, the ‘sweet nothings’ comment cracks me up too. He could be saying, “hey…I just let a stinky fart.”

Maria, not sure what you mean. They’re definitely not known for their PDA, but he’s been photographed kissing her hand, hugging her, etc. Most married couples with multiple children aren’t exactly all over each other when they’re out in public (and surrounded by photographers). And judging from the fact that they’re expecting their 3rd child, I think it’s safe to say he shows her affection haha

Momof3girls, I was thinking the same thing! Glad to see a sense of humor on here.

I think Rosemarie would be a lovely name choice if they had a 3rd girl. It goes well with Violet and Sera.

I think he’s saying, ‘Isn’t it funny that we practically wore matching short sweaters today?’

hehehe….cute. 🙂

Sarah K, I thought the same thing:-) She’s pregnant, so obviously there’s some affection going on!

Obviously just because a couple isn’t big on PDA, doesn’t mean they aren’t loving and affectionate in private.

Sarah K.- “And judging from the fact that they’re expecting their 3rd child, I think it’s safe to say he shows her affection haha”. ROFLOL! I love the way you used humor to answer the post about Ben and Jen “finally” being affectionate!

Oh, and for what it’s worth, unless Jen’s ears are practically on the top of her head, I don’t think Ben is whispering ANYTHING to her. I think he’s simply nuzzling his face into her hair! 🙂

Where is the whispering? I see him kissing her head. Bad attempt at trying to be cute.

Maria, I think their 3rd pregnancy is proof enough that he shows his wife affection.

These two are just so cute together. They have a beautiful family and seem so well matched. 🙂 Rare for Hollywood…

I think he’s telling her “mmmmm…your hair smells like roses.” LOL! Either that or he’s telling her to watch out because he’s going to take out the photographer that’s shooting her. 🙂

I think they’re excited about purchasing a new home for their expanding family. 🙂

@Maria – maybe some couples just do not like a lot of PDA. I know that my husband and I do not like to show a lot of affection in public; it’s just how we are, so maybe they are the same way. just my opinion.

I love them! They make the most adorable babies…

they’re cute.
