Jennifer Garner would like everyone to know she has a baby bump, but she's not pregnant.
The "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" star poked fun at her ongoing pregnancy rumors during a visit to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Wednesday.
"Supposedly...you have a baby bump," Ellen DeGeneres said. "So, I guess you're pregnant again?"
"I get congratulated all the time by people that I know, saying, 'I hear you're pregnant!' You know, this one woman who had babysat for us said, 'OMG! I can't wait for baby No. 4!' and I thought, 'What is going on?' So I asked around and apparently I have a baby bump. And I'm here to tell you that I doÃ¢â¬âI do!" the actress said as the audience cheered.
But she and husband Ben Affleck are not expecting a fourth child.
"Hold up. Hold right up! I am not pregnant, but I have had three kids and there is a bump," she continued. "From now on ladies, I will have a bump. And it will be my baby bump. And let's just all settle in and get used to it. It's not going anywhere. I have a bump. Its name is Violet, Sam, Sera. Well, but I see you guys are really eager for us to pop out another one. Gosh, you're exhausting!"
"You look fantastic and it really is crazy that people are looking for something and saying that you have a baby bump...Anyway, thanks for clearing it up. So, you will have a baby bump forever." Ellen said. "But not another baby?"
"No, just a bump," the actress joked, adding that her tummy looks "like a camel, but in reverse."
Jen was also asked about Ben's recent (and brief) full frontal shower scene in "Gone Girl."
"What I have to say is... you're welcome," the 42-year-old actress said. "You know, I try to consider myself a charitable person and I wanted to give back. You give me so much. I wanted to give something back to all of you."
But did Jen and Ben discuss showing off everything in the David Fincher film prior to shooting it?
"It was a discussion it was like, 'Hey, um, at work today [the director] talked me into coming out of the shower.' I was like, 'Cool. Well, I hope he had on a wide lens'" Jen joked. "If you're going to go there, Ellen, you have to go all the way there. You can't ask me to talk about this and not just be ready for whatever comes."
