According to Life & Style magazine, father Ben couldn’t be more excited to welcome a “little sports buddy”.
“He can’t wait to take his son to baseball games and play catch with him,” the insider told Life & Style of Affleck, who’s a huge fan of the Boston Red Sox.
However, the 39-year-old actress is a bit more nervous about welcoming a boy after having two daughters.
“She feels like she won’t know what to do,” the source adds. “She’s close to her two sisters, and her instincts were spot-on with the girls. But she never had a brother and doesn’t know the drill.”
The anxiety can surely be explained by the fact that Jennifer was raised in an all-female family atmosphere, surrounded by her two sisters.
“Everyone says, ‘Oh I hope it’s a boy,’” the Alias star Ellen DeGeneres last month. “I’m one of three girls, and my little sister is awesome, so I just want a Suzanna … but obviously we’d be happy either way.”
“It would be so weird to have a boy, and cool and different; and I’m sure it would be fun for Ben, he likes baseball and all that stuff … but a third girl: Three girls is a great way to grow up,” she added.
