Ben Affleck has announced the name of his and Jennifer Garner’s baby boy, and guess what? The name is normal!

Actually, the name is Samuel, but in the celebrity baby ranks, ‘Samuel’ is about as normal as it gets.


‘We are happy to announce on Feb. 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck,’ the new dad said Wednesday on Facebook. News of the baby’s arrival leaked on Tuesday.

Little Sam -- we hope they call him Sam -- was reportedly born in Santa Monica, and joins older sisters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3. Garner and Affleck, who started dating in 2004, got married in June 2005.
