OTRC: Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck welcome baby boy, Samuel

Jennifer Garner and husband Ben Affleck recently welcomed their third child, a baby boy.

Garner gave birth in Santa Monica, California recently, according to People magazine and Us Weekly. Affleck confirmed the news on Wednesday on his Facebook page.

"We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck," he said.

Garner and Affleck are parents to two daughters, 6-year-old Violet and 3-year-old Seraphina. The actress announced her pregnancy in August.

She talked about it on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on January 18. At the time, Garner also revealed that she knew the sex of the baby but wasn't going to announce it publicly.

The actress told Leno when he asked if Affleck wanted a boy, "I would have thought so. At first I think I really thought so and then he kind of said, 'Well, we have girls. We know how to do girls. My girls love me. I'm the big guy in the house.' So, now I'm not sure."

Affleck and Garner, who are both 39, married in 2005 in a private ceremony in the Caribbean after dating for a year. The two appeared together in the 2003 film "Daredevil."

Garner was previously married to actor Scott Foley, who she met on the set of "Felicity" in 1998. The two were married from 2000 until 2003. Garner also dated her "Alias" co-star Michael Vartan from 2003 until 2004.

Affleck dated actress Gwyneth Paltrow in 1998, following her breakup from Brad Pitt. The actor was briefly engaged to singer Jennifer Lopez after dating between 2002 and 2004.
