Expectant mom Jennifer Garner shows her spots in Santa Monica, Calif., where she indulged her sweet tooth with some ice cream on Tuesday.

Despite her cravings, the actress — mom to Violet Anne, 6, and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 2½, and due with her third child with husband Ben Affleck this winter — is trying to watch what she eats.

“I wish I was one of those cute pregnant girls who wear skinny jeans throughout their pregnancies,” Garner, 39, told InStyle.

“But I just gain weight. I’m trying really hard to be mindful, but when I’m making the kids mac and cheese, I want it badly.”

Love her!

She looks great!

Liz on

She shouldn’t be so hard on herself. She looks wonderful.

She appears to be at a Yogen Fruz, a frozen yogurt shop. Better for you than ice cream.

PEOPLE Mag. we have a daily flip book of Jennifer’s daily habits, leave the woman alone. Let her get a stupid cup of coffee with out a camera in her face, stop paying off these vulture photographers.

ArabicRican on

maybe be a boy but I’m guessing a girl again

Lauren on

looks ready to pop within the next couple weeks or so.

It never ceases to amaze me when people come on here and chastise People for publishing pictures of celebrities. Why the hell are you here, to read the ads??? Seriously holier-than-thou!

She looks wonderful- glowing!

Jennifer you are beautiful!

emily- Tabs are claiming it’s a boy, but Jen and Ben have not actually said anything themselves about the baby’s gender. Anyway, she looks great!

Me on

Just LOVE her! I’m really thinking boy for them. Usually when there’s so much gossip about something, it’s rarely wrong. Either way, I just adore her and Ben. Can’t wait to see the next cutie pie they have! This is one family I love hearing about. Best of luck Jen!!

Kendrajoi – I think the point made was that we aren’t interested in the mundane (ie, grabbing a coffee, picking up an ice cream, anything to do with the Kardashians). I think we are seeking more interesting, even illuminating, stories.

Sarah K. on

Peggy, people rarely bash Jennifer Garner on this site. She’s one of the few celebrities that can get away with saying she’s gained a lot of weight and eats mac & cheese without getting ripped to shreds. That being said, she does look great and I couldn’t tell she’d put on any other than normal pregnancy weight.

i like her, she is a pretty pregnant lady but regardless of being preg. or not, she has the worst fashion sense. the photo here proves that.

I’m with you 100% on the let’s not read anything about the Kardashian’s thing – but the stories about them are still making the most read stories of the week so they aren’t going anywhere as there are obviously lots of people still interested in them.

Seriously, the two younger girls get puppies and that’s one of the most read stories??? I love puppies as much as the next person, but I hardly see it as groundbreaking news.

I guess it’s more interesting than Jen Garner getting a frozen yogurt though. Of course Jen Garner getting a yogurt won’t be one of the most read stories of the week.

Tara on

I think she looks amazing, even if she doesn’t consider herself one of the “cute pregnant girls”. Can’t wait to hear whether it’s a boy or a girl and whatever name they choose, their two girls are adorable and have beautiful names!

Illuminating? Please, you are on the People website. If you wanted illuminating you wouldn’t be here.
