Pregnant Jennifer Garner would find having a son weird!

Pregnant Jennifer Garner – who is expecting her third baby with Ben Affleck - has told chat show host Ellen deGeneres that having a little boy after two girls would be 'weird'.

"Obviously we'd be happy either way," Jennifer explained, but admitted "It would be so weird to have a boy and cool and different. And I'm sure it would be fun for Ben as he likes baseball and all that stuff. But a third girl, three girls is a great way to grow up."

Jennifer also spilled the beans on husband Ben Affleck's prowess as a hands-on daddy in an all-girl household - according to her, he is quite happy to play with dolls with Violet, five, and Seraphina, two!

"My husband plays a lot of baby doll. He is really cute," Jennifer tells Ellen, "I will walk in and he will be sitting on a little chair. He's so tall! And he'll have a baby doll and I'll say, 'What are you doing?' 'I'm watching Frankie (the baby doll) here.'"

Jennifer also said that her two little girls want to choose the name for their new baby - and that they don't mind at all if it is a boy or a girl:

"They don't really care about the gender as much as long as we name it what they it to be named. Ralphie, Frankie, Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck. Rosemarie.. Daisy Duck Affleck. I can see us going that way!"

Hmm, by usual celeb standards those names seem pretty normal to us...

Did you let your older children choose your new baby's name?
