How’s it hangin’?

Soon-to-be mom-of-three Jennifer Garner gives daughter Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 2½, a hand at the monkey bars on Sunday during a family outing in Santa Monica, Calif.

“It’s so important that we remind ourselves to get up and out with our kids and run them around,” the actress, 38, says.

“I have to remind myself [too]. Just yesterday, I realized we’d been sitting inside all day on a gorgeous day. I thought, ‘I just have to get outside. Just go and get to the park. Go out in the dirt and muck and be outside and get fresh air and run around.'”

What a cutie! And those Garner genes sure are strong…because Sera is all Jennifer, and so is Violet! I also love the fact that Sera is barefoot in this picture. Nothing like being able to run free! :)

She has got to be the coolest mom ever! I love her.

Wondering if the new baby is a boy or girl and what they will name him/her!

If it’s a girl, I would think they would continue the flower/traditional name combo like Ivy Caroline or Lily Catherine.

Seraphina looks so happy! She also looks just like her dad.

I love this family and I love this picture …. Jennifer really seems like a hands on mommy …. She and Ben have beautiful children :-)

Michelle- I wonder about the gender and the name, too. I also wonder if this baby will have one middle name like Violet, or two like Seraphina (or maybe they’ll surprise us all and give this baby THREE middle names!)?

I also wonder whether, if they have a boy, he’ll be given Ben’s middle name since Violet has Jennifer’s middle name?

I think Jen Garner is my favorite Hollywood mommy. She’s one of the very few Hollywood moms who looks like a REAL mom — running around holding kids around her waist, no makeup, very casual clothes — she’s very relatable and down-to-earth.
