Is Jennifer Garner pregnant with her and John Miller‘s baby? That’s the premise of a new tabloid report which claims the actress is expecting her fourth child and first with her new boyfriend. Gossip Cop, however, can correct this falsehood.
According to Woman’s Day, Garner has “something to celebrate” after her divorce from Ben Affleck. The outlet insists the actress, who turns 47 in April, is having another baby with Miller, the CEO of the Cali Group and already father of two. The magazine alleges a “source close to” Garner tells the publication, “Jen was shocked when she found out she was expecting baby number four and said she took seven tests as she couldn’t believe it.”
“After getting over the initial shock,” adds the purported tipster, “Jen said she’s over the moon and that she always wanted four children.” The so-called “source” further asserts, “She told friends and family the happy news over Christmas.” Curiously, while the “source close to” Garner knows she “took seven [pregnancy] tests” and shared the news over Christmas, the anonymous and untraceable person doesn’t actually know when Garner’s due.
It seems the article was manufactured after someone at the tabloid thought he or she saw Garner with a baby bump. The magazine writes how she “wore a black Gucci dressed with a cleverly placed bow to hide her midriff at the recent Art of Elysium Gala.” Since the January 5 event, however, the actress has been photographed a number of times and looks decidedly not pregnant.
For instance, much was written about Garner and the tight PVC pants she wore to the L.A. Clippers and Golden State Warriors game on Friday. And Garner was pictured giving her 6-year-old son Samuel a piggyback ride in Brentwood on Saturday. It would stand to reason that if were she pregnant, she wouldn’t be exerting herself by giving her son rides on her back.
And while the tabloid quotes an unidentifiable “source” as maintaining Garner’s having a child with Miller, and that she always wanted four children,” the actress herself said several years ago she was “definitely” finished having kids. More than five years ago, Garner told Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show, she was “done” having children. “That’s enough,” she said, jokingly adding, “We have provided the world with enough.” And last month, when similar rumors were being floated, the actress’s rep told Gossip Cop on the record that talk of Garner being pregnant with Miller’s baby was untrue.
Woman’s Day doesn’t have a great track when reporting about Garner. Last year, for example, Gossip Cop busted the publication when it wrongly reported Josh Duhamel was dating Garner and playing stepdad to her and Affleck’s kids. Of course, the two Love, Simon co-stars were not romantically involved off-screen. It’s also the same outlet that inaccurately contended last March how Affleck and Garner were back together.
The false narrative about Garner being pregnant with Miller’s baby has plagued the couple ever since it emerged they were dating a few months ago. It was even alleged Affleck and Garner finalized their divorce only because she and Miller are having baby. But none of those tales were true and neither is the latest one about Garner expecting baby number four with Miller.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
