We Think Jennifer Garner Is Having a Boy: Do You Agree?

Bump watch! Jennifer Garner was recently spotted sporting a partially-buttoned cardigan, showing off her newly-popped baby belly.

Since Jen is a third-time mama (she and hubs Ben Affleck have two daughters, Violet, 5 and Seraphina, 2), she’s probably used to the boy-or-girl spectulation that comes with the bump’s appearance. (First-time moms can take up to 20 weeks to show, but for those who’ve already had kids, your bump can show much sooner.) So, let the gender guessing begin!

For a completely unscientific, just for fun take, we've used the following predictors to determine whether Baby Affleck will be a little boy or girl (Moms-to-be, you can try this too!):

1. Shape of your bump: According to lore, when you’re carrying a girl, your belly looks like a watermelon and the weight spreads beyond the belly, invading your hips and buttt. Meanwhile, a round belly shaped like a basketball means you're having a boy.

2. Height of your bump: As old wives' tales suggest, moms-to-be who are carrying high will most likely have a girl, while carrying low means you'll deliver a boy.

3. Your complexion. Some say that clear skin and a healthy glow signals a boy on the way; breakouts and red spots mean Mom's got a girl.

4. The state of your face: Besides your skin, "lost looks" means it's a girl (the belief is the little one has stolen Mommy’s beauty -- sweet and sad!). But moms-to-be who have kept their looks can expect a boy.

Taking a glimpse at Jen, our call is: Boy. While she still looked pretty amazing when she was carrying both of her daughters, her belly was more watermelon than basketball. But this time around, she's got a tight, round, carrying-a-boy middle. And her skin appears to be as gorgeous as ever. Bring on the blue!
