Jennifer Garner was the 2000s’ biggest star. She was not only a household celebrity as a result of her participation in the successful television program “Alias,” but she also acted in a number of hit films during that time period, including “Pearl Harbor,” “Catch Me If You Can,” and “13 Going on 30.” However, a lot of time has passed since then.
While Garner continues to appear in blockbuster roles, the 49-year-old actress also has other obligations.
Garner has three children from her marriage to acclaimed actor and director Ben Affleck: son Samuel Garner Affleck and daughters Violet Anne Affleck and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck.
Despite the fact that the couple declared their decision to divorce in 2015, just three years after Samuel was born, the two actors are frequently seen together with their children, implying that family is important to both of them. While Garner is apparently unmarried now, speculation over whether the “13 Going on 30” actress is pregnant again persists despite her denials.
Garner opened up about pregnancy speculation and her life as a mom on the March 2021 episode of Giovanna Fletcher’s “Happy Mum, Happy Baby” podcast, which focuses on motherhood and parenting. She discussed everything from her post-baby body to why she believes gratitude is the best way to move on in life.
Garner is now working in Hollywood on two projects: a family comedy called “Yes Day,” which will be released in March 2021, and a science fiction feature that will be released in 2022.
Garner begins her podcast participation by discussing women’s bodies post-pregnancy. Garner, who has three children, adds that while some women “bounce back” right away after having children, she has had a different experience.
“It’s unbelievable.” “I have so many buddies with that body, and I’m really thrilled for them,” she told Fletcher, before adding, “I am not one of them.” “That’s not my job.”
But it doesn’t mean Garner isn’t physically fit—far from it. According to Woman’s Health, the actress maintains her fitness by working with expert trainer Simone De La Rue.
“We’ll perform typical strength training one minute, then the next we’ll be dancing to increase agility and core strength,” De La Rue told Woman’s Health. “I really change things up, and we never do the same thing twice.” “She does everything, which is amazing!”
Garner’s normal routines include ab exercises, planks, pushups, and lifting, which would weary anyone—let alone a 49-year-old mother of three!
“I can work extremely hard and be really fit, and I will always look like a lady who’s had three babies,” Garner noted in an interview with Fletcher.
Despite her training regimen and assurance that she does not want more children, both the public and the media have played a role in spreading speculations about Garner and a possible fourth child, indicating that the actress has gained weight. Garner said she wasn’t pregnant on an episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2014, and she pushed for body positivity.
“I’m not pregnant,” Garner quipped on the show, “but I’ve had three kids, and there’s a bump.” “Ladies, from now on, I’ll have a bump, and it’ll be my baby bump.” Let’s simply get accustomed to it and settle in. It’s not going away. Violet, Sam, and Sera are its names.
On Fletcher’s podcast, Garner discussed that Ellen episode, which earned a raucous ovation from the studio audience in 2014 and continues to connect with moms worldwide.
“I simply figured I may as well address it, and Ellen was so gracious to allow me to,” Garner explained. “But I simply thought we may as well?”
“It’s still going on,” she continued. “I’m 48 and unmarried, and it’s still happening to me.” As a result, you might as well grab the bull by the horns.”
According to the CommentsByCelebs Instagram account—a public account that displays responses made by notable personalities and celebrities on social media—it appears that even after her revelation on Ellen’s show, people are still asking Garner if she’s pregnant. Having said that, this random user’s 2020 comment did not appear to reach the mother of three. In reality, Garner delivered a flawless response.
“I am 48 years old, have three healthy children, and am not and will never be pregnant.” “We can bury that pupper,” she wrote. “Did I get COVID-19?” Possibly. “But that’s another tale.”
Her statements have struck a chord with many women who completely agree with her and have had similar situations.
If there’s one thing to take away from this podcast episode—or many of Garner’s body-positive statements throughout the years—it’s that being appreciative of one’s body is vital.
“It’s only a body.” Be thankful for it. It got you this far. It delivered babies for you. What more do you require? “Oh, my gosh.”
Garner also offers advice to anyone who is dealing with their own sentiments about themselves and their appearances, and she advises individuals to spend time away from staring in the mirror. “When you find yourself being overly judgmental of yourself, turn around, pivot, and go do something good for someone else,” the actress said. “Or go work out, or simply take that and make it active rather than having it fester in you.”
Garner’s basic approach to body care extends to her beauty routine. The 49-year-old actress is gorgeous and well-known for being down-to-earth and approachable. According to TODAY, she also has a “low-key” beauty routine and is affiliated with the haircare company Virtue, which she joined in 2019.
Garner believes that less is more when it comes to cosmetics. “I don’t want my kids or others to simply see the actor version of me that is wonderfully done up by amazing artists and believe that’s how I look,” Garner added. “I want to appear regular, and I want to normalize appearing normal.” That is something I have always felt strongly about. And then, when I’m dressed up, I appreciate it when my kids say, “Woo, look at my mom!”
