Jennifer Garner shares son Samuel Garner (9) and daughters Violet Anne (15) and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth (12) with ex-husband Ben Affleck

Speaking of the transformation on Monday on Monday’s episode of the Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast, the 48-year-old Yes Day star told host Giovanna Fletcher that some women’s bodies can “spring back” instantly after having children, but she is just “not one of them”

“There are some incredible women whose bodies, no matter how many babies they have, jump right back to that slim waist with no stomach,” she explained. “It’s amazing. I have so many friends who have this physique, and I do.” I’m so happy for them I’m not one of them This is not my gig “

The actress, who shares son Samuel Garner, 9, and daughters Violet Anne, 15, and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 12, with ex-husband Ben Affleck continued, “I can work really hard and I really can be fit and I will still look like a woman who has three babies and I always will “

Garner also spoke about a 2014 appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show addressing pregnancy rumors and defending her changing body after welcoming three children

At the time, the alias alum said, “I’m not pregnant, but I have three kids and there’s a bump From now on, ladies, I will have a bump and it will be my baby bump Let’s all just settle in and get used to it. It’s going nowhere. His name is Violet, Sam and Sera “

Looking back on the experience, Garner said on the podcast, “I just thought I might as well bring it up, and Ellen [DeGeneres] was so sweet to let me, but I just felt like we could just as well? “

According to the mother of three, however, due to her figure, she is confronted with pregnancy speculations to this day
