Jennifer Garner knew she was pregnant out of the blue regardless of her specialist disclosing to her generally.
The 46-year-old performing artist — who is mother to Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6 — co-facilitated The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s yearly Mother’s Day scene on Thursday.

In spite of the fact that her at-home-pregnancy test was “faint to the point” that she couldn’t exactly tell and a specialist authoritatively advised her “you’re not pregnant” subsequent to giving her an “appropriate test” soon thereafter, Garner said she woke up that morning and “just knew.”
“I resembled, ‘Better believe it, I am. I’m disclosing to you I am,’ ” she revealed to her specialist, including that she changed doctors before long. “So Violet’s 12, and I don’t utilize that specialist any longer, yet I have her so I won!”
