Ben Affleck makes the announcement on his official Facebook page when revealing that he and the 'Butter' actress welcomed their third child on Monday, February 27.
Shortly after words came out that Jennifer Garner has given birth to a baby boy, Ben Affleck reveals the name he and his wife gave to their newborn. While many celebrities opted to go with unique and uncommon monikers, the Hollywood couple chose a normal one for their third child together, Samuel.
On Wednesday, the star/director of "The Town" took to his official Facebook page to confirm the arrival of his son, and used the opportunity to unveil the boy's name. "We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck," so he wrote.

Ben Affleck wants us to keep a "glimmer of hope" for the Congo.
The actor, 36, continues his ardent activism with an essay for the current issue of Time about his personal experiences and the ongoing war and displacement in eastern Congo.
Affleck has been traveling to the African country since 2007 to learn firsthand about the devastation and has also made a documentary about the war-torn country's urgent crisis.
In the essay, "A Glimmer of Hope in Africa," Affleck, citing the decades of instability and violence caused by rebel fighters, extremists, and outlaw militia, writes: "In the past 10 years alone, millions have died here, and more die each day as a result of the conflict.
"Most die not from war wounds but from starvation or disease … one in five children in Congo will die before reaching the age of 5."
What he hopes to prevent, Affleck writes, is a feeling of hopelessness or being overwhelmed by the country's problems.
"The nation most in need of investment gets the least by the cruel logic that it is the most broken," he writes. "It is a self-fulfilling prophecy that ultimately fosters indifference in the guise of wisdom."
Ben Affleck - who has two daughters with wife Jennifer Garner - is said to be keen to add a bouncing baby boy to his brood.
"Ben's happy to keep going until he gets his boy," a source tells America's OK! magazine. "He has visions of dressing a little guy in Red Sox gear, tossing a baseball around and cheering in the stands together.
"Jennifer has told friends she's done having children. She jokes with Ben, 'If you want more babies, you'll have to find a way to produce them yourself!'"
However, Ben remains optimistic his wife will eventually change her mind.
"Jen is a big softie when it comes to giving Ben what he wants," the source adds, "[If he can't have a son] he'll have those little girls dressed head-to-toe in Red Sox gear!"

In yet another an effort to raise awareness of the conflict in the eastern Congo, which has displaced nearly 300,000 people and caused tremendous suffering, Ben Affleck is visiting the war-torn Central African country.
Affleck has visited the Congo four times since 2007 and also has made a documentary about its problems and years of sporadic violence, which many fear could draw in neighboring countries.
"The primary reason I am here is to urge people to give money to the NGOs (non-governmental organizations) and charities doing hard work in eastern Congo on meager funds," Affleck told the Associated Press on Thursday in Goma.
"And if people out there have an existing relationship with a charity, to urge that charity to get involved in eastern Congo. To let people know, 'Don't just read the horror stories in the newspapers and turn off.' It's not something that we as human beings can, in good conscience, ignore."

Ben Affleck went to a hypnotist to help him quit smoking.
The 'Pearl Harbor' actor says becoming a father to two-year-old Violet, his daughter with wife Jennifer Garner, was the catalyst he needed to overcome his habit.
Once he had made up his mind to quit, Ben decided to take a leaf out of pal Matt Damon's book by visiting a hypnotist.
He told Oprah Winfrey: "I finally decided to quit smoking when I found out I was going to have a child. That was the thing that sort of put it over the top for me. I decided to go to a hypnotist. You sit in a chair and the hypnotist sips water and just talks to you for an hour, and explains how nicotine is poison.
"All of a sudden, I thought, 'This is asinine that I've been doing this to myself for all these years.' My last cigarette was on November 10th, 2005, and I feel a huge difference in my health now that I don't smoke. I feel like I'm in better shape than I was five years ago."
