Jennifer Garner is rumoured to be pregnant with Ben Affleck's baby. The 43-year-old actress and the Argo actor apparently have been spending a lot of time together.

Affleck and Garner have remained close, though they announced their divorce in a joint statement on 30 June 2015 — a day after their tenth wedding anniversary. A source told Radar Online: "Friends are expecting an announcement very soon that Jen is pregnant. Jen has played Ben like a fiddle! She was determined to make him 'walk the plank' over his wild ways. She believed he would come to his senses and they could save their marriage."

"She's always wanted another child with him. Even since they split, she's gushed publicly about how he is the love of her life. First, she let him move back onto their property, living in a guest house. They've continued taking family vacations, spending all the important days in their children's lives together, even sleeping together," the insider added.

"In many ways, Ben's been a lousy husband — but Jen still loves him and missed their steamy sex life! When she gave birth to Samuel in 2012, she hoped things would change, since all Ben talked about was how much he wanted a son. But he fell back into his same old bad habits," the source continued.

"I think they both hoped the split would be the big, final wake-up call that would turn Ben into the husband they're convinced he can be! Jen loves being a mother, and she wants a real family, not two parents living apart and sharing custody," the insider said.

Meanwhile, in an interview with Vanity Fair, Garner revealed details about her split with Affleck. She told the publication: "I didn't marry the big fat movie star; I married him. And I would go back and remake that decision. I ran down the beach to him, and I would again. You can't have these three babies and so much of what we had. He's the love of my life. What am I going to do about that? He's the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He's just a complicated guy. I always say, 'When his sun shines on you, you feel it.' But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it's cold. He can cast quite a shadow."

"It was a real marriage. It wasn't for the cameras. And it was a huge priority for me to stay in it. And that did not work," she added.
