Why Is Jennifer Garner Talking About Ben Affleck's Sperm?

Jennifer Garner

Is the actress giving us too much information on Ben Affleck's fluids?

Apparently Jennifer Garner thinks discussing her husband's virility on national television is no big deal. This is because Ben Affleck, Garner's husband of seven years, is apparently quite virile. We're thinking if he was sterile, Garner wouldn't be so nonchalant about it.

But nonchalant was precisely how the actress acted on Ellen, when she and Ellen DeGeneres discussed her and Ben Affleck's growing clan. Garner said that while she's not pregnant now (and wants to stay that way), she's afraid she'll still get pregnant due to her husband's "wonder sperm." 

Garner doesn't say whether or not his wonder sperm is capable of defeating birth control. According to Us, the actress told Ellen she wants "to be done" with children, "but my husband is kind of a wonder sperm kind of guy." Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck Welcome Baby Samuel!

Ellen laughed and said, "Good to know."

"You never don't know," Garner responded. "You just have a look at him!"

So is wonder sperm capable of beating contraceptives? Garner doesn't go that far. Thankfully. We're wondering how Ben feels about all this information becoming public. Jennifer Garner On Divorce, Romance & Ben Affleck

Ellen and Jennifer eventually moved past the sperm talk during their interview, and discussed the couple's three existing children (Violet, 6, Seraphina, 3, and Samuel, 7 months), who are, apparently, more challenging to raise than Garner expected. 

"I mean, they didn't pee in my eye. I don't know if it's because he's a boy. I don't know if it's because he's my third and I forget that I have him," she admitted. "You know you're just dealing with two and then you think, 'I put a baby down. I swear I put a baby down somewhere.' And you kind of walk through the house. 'There you are!' He's just happy as can be."

Garner said that the newest bundle to her and Affleck's lot "is so chill and mellow. . . He's perfect right now because he doesn't move. But he sleeps pretty well. He reaches when he sees me and he laughs a lot. He thinks I'm super funny. What more do you want?"

Apparently, no more children.
