Last night Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced the birth of their son (insert quirky name here) and I almost peed my pants in excitement. Then I remembered that’s socially unacceptable and no one would find it charming that I peed my pants over the birth of a child that I will never meet. It’s just that their first two children, Violet and Seraphina, are so absoultely adorable that I almost can’t handle the thought of having to stalk a third precious Affleck child. Being obsessed with celebrity children is an exhausting hobby and you have no idea how much one photo gallery of a day at the park can take out of me.
I don’t know if it’s the glasses or the mismatched outfits, but I’ve always had a soft spot for Violet . Something about her strikes me as so normal and I just know if I was born in the late ’00s, we’d be the best of friends. It almost goes without saying we would start a Babysitter’s Club book club and discuss the characters in depth.
Seraphina I don’t know as well so I can’t say for sure whether we’d be friends. But going along in this completely healthy fantasy I have in my head, I’m sure I’d see her because I would be hanging out with Violet so much.
So in honor of two of my favorite celebrity children (and potential friends), I present their most adorable and candid family photos:
