The actress on the sex of her baby and explaining thongs to her five-year-old!
For Jennifer Garner, motherhood is nothing if not interesting! The pregnant actress recently visited Ellen DeGeneres' talk show, Ellen, to chat about her third pregnancy, if she and actor hubby Ben Affleck want a boy or girl, how she explains thongs to Violet, and... how her kids tell her that her butt is huge.

"You know how once you have kids you never ever pee by yourself again?" she says. "At least one of them is always in there with you at all times. So the other day, Violet is in there with me and all of the sudden she went, 'Oh Mom, we have to have a talk.' She said, 'Mom, your bottom has gotten so big that your panties don't even begin to cover it.'"
From the mouths of babes! Thankfully, Garner had a justification for her big bottom (aside from, you know, being preggo and all). Jennifer Garner Talks Babies And Working With Ben
"I said, 'It's called a thong, you wear it when you're a grown up. She was like, 'Uh, that is so gross!'"
Aside from explaining adult undergarments to her kids, Garner has quite a bit going on at home. She and Affleck are preparing for their third child, and at the moment, they're undecided if they want another girl for sisters Violet, 5, and Seraphina, 2, or if a boy would be a nice change of pace.
"It would be so weird to have a boy and cool and different," Garner, who grew up with sisters, said. "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."
But according to Garner, their two daughters don't care what gender the baby is as long as it's named something they suggest! Among their preferred baby names: "Ralphie, Frankie, Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, or Rosemarie."
"Daisy Duck Affleck," Garner laughs. "I can see us going that way." Jennifer Garner On Divorce, Romance & Ben Affleck
