Garner whose two eldest children are girls, Violet and Seraphina with husband Ben Affleck is said to be enjoying raising her six-month-old son Samuel because it is a totally new experience.
“Samuel’s at an age where he is starting to do more,” a Garner pal told Us Weekly. “He has been so much fun for her and such a different experience from the girls.”
The pal adds that Samuel is “super chill and go-with-the-flow, but a total mama’s boy.”
The actress recently shared with iVillage why she’s so passionate about her work as an artist ambassador with the children’s nonprofit organization Save the Children.
“The mothers I have visited in rural America live in cinder-block homes, or trailers without windows or space to put a playpen or lay their children on the floor and play with them. These families live in government-sponsored housing without a book or a picture or a crayon in sight. These parents are so isolated — not always part of a loving community with friends to compare notes and vent to or watch and learn from, but all alone and far from family and often a little bit ashamed and embarrassed by their situations. When you have a little baby, or two or three, you need encouragement and support. These women are raising a baby in a vacuum. The families that Save the Children serves lack the physical tools of early education.”
