A very pregnant Jennifer Garner has revealed that she knows the gender of the baby she’s expecting with Ben Affleck. She’s chosen to keep it a secret until she gives birth next month, but her recent comments on ‘The Tonight Show’ are raising eyebrows.

The actress previously said she’s hoping their third child will be a little girl, but she admitted that she’s having a hard time decoding whether Affleck has a preference. They already have two daughters, Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3.

“I would have thought [he wanted a boy]. At first I think I really thought so,” Garner told host Jay Leno on ‘The Tonight Show.’ “And then he kind of said, ‘Well, we have girls. We know how to do girls. My girls love me. I’m the big guy in the house.’ So, now I’m not sure.”

When it comes to naming the newest addition, the couple’s daughters are reportedly having a field day suggesting creative options.

“Our girls are working on names. At first they were definitely Disney. It was like, Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck,” Garner, 39, said on ‘The Tonight Show.’ “And then they’ve moved on. Then it was Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Smee.”

Garner added: “They’re coming up with lists and coming in and saying, ‘Let’s have a baby-naming contest! Let’s have a baby-naming poll! They ask everyone, because they just want to know. But we’re not telling.”
