Happy Birthday Violet Anne! You are now two years old!

Name: Violet Anne Affleck

Birthday: December 1st, 2005

Famous for: Being the daughter of actors Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, both 35.


Violet is an only child…so far. Jennifer says that her gorgeous daughter sleeps well but this worries Jennifer when it comes to thinking about a second child.

What they said:

Jennifer on finding it hard to work out how to discipline Violet.

On trying to balance being a mom and her career.

Jennifer refers to her daughter as ‘delicious,’ and says that they are yet to reach the terrible twos;

Getting Violet out and about is a top priority for Jen — she doesn’t allow Violet to watch TV. She jokes,

Jennifer says that it got easier to say no once she had, had a child.

Jennifer has mentioned in previous statements she made about filming The Kingdom in Arizona in summer ’06 in relation to breastfeeding.

All in all, she nursed Violet for 14 months — pumping in the car on the way to the Oscars, and in airplane bathrooms.

Jennifer says she is with Violet in the morning ‘four out of five working days.’

On her wishes relating to the paparazzi.

The family is still considering a possible move away from LA — Jennifer is from West Virginia, while Ben hails from Boston.

On having more children: We definitely wonder what it would be like to have another — hopefully, knock on wood, someday. [raps table] My job is great to have as a mom. I get to take breaks and then work in a really concentrated way. During that concentrated time, it sucks, but whatever.

On Ben quitting smoking: Three weeks before we had Violet, he went to a hypnotist and has not smoked since! I so admire him, because it was so painful. But he is sick so much less often, and I don’t lose him every 15 minutes while he wanders around outside. He smells great. It’s a huge gift that he gave me — and our daughter as well. I probably annoy him, I celebrate it so much.
