Garner's Toddler Chose New Baby Name
The Alias star and husband Ben Affleck have been bombarded with questions by the press since they decided to call their three-month-old Seraphina Rose, which means "little angel".
Garner admits she has been reluctant to answer, because the couple were bullied into choosing the name by their older daughter, who had a premonition early on in the actress' pregnancy.
Garner says, "Violet, ever since she figured out that I was pregnant, she said, 'Oh that's Sara.' And we didn't know if it was a boy or a girl, so we're like, 'Oh, we'll see.' We didn't know where she came up with it but she said Sara consistently the whole time. And we kept saying she's not going to name the kid, she's a baby. We'll decide and we'll figure it out."
But the couple were finally able to compromise with their toddler on a name that made the entire family happy.
She adds, "A week into it (after giving birth) we hadn't decided. So we just went with what Violet wanted... and the thing we liked about it was it meant angel in every language. She gets her way sometimes."
