Jennifer Garner is pregnant; it's her third baby with Ben Affleck

Jennifer Garner is pregnant again, expecting her third child with husband Ben Affleck.

The couple said Monday that they are "thrilled" to have a third baby on the way to join daughters Violet, 5, and Seraphina Rose, 2. Garner and Affleck, both 39, released no additional details to the AP about the pregnancy.

Another baby will mean one more child on Garner's mind when she's doing the working-mom thing she described to People after her youngest was born:

"[I] feel like half my brain is somewhere else all the time," she told the magazine. "But when the camera's rolling, I pull it together and focus for two minutes, and then I kind of turn back to a ditz again. I have a split personality."

Also, unfortunately, it'll presumably be one more tot to lure paparazzi lenses -- photogs have been a problem in the past outside Violet's preschool.
