(Newser) – Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are the parents of a baby boy, reports Us Weekly. They're no strangers to the unique-celeb-name-game—their daughters are Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3—but they went with something a bit more traditional for the new addition: Samuel Garner Affleck. The proud papa announced the name on his Facebook Timeline, People reports. Garner and Affleck, both 39, will be married seven years in June.

"We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck," Affleck wrote.
