Raised with two sisters, Jennifer Garner would love for her two daughters to have the same experience.
“Three girls is a great way to grow up,” the pregnant actress, 39, says during an interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show scheduled to air Tuesday. “I’m one of three girls and my little sister is awesome.”
Even though Garner says, “It would be so weird to have a boy,” she also thinks the experience would be “cool and different.”
