Jen & Ben’s genius baby

Jennifer Garner has boasted that her and Ben Affleck’s one-year-old baby girl, Violet, is a “genius”. Jennifer gushes, “It turns out we have the genius child of the century. She’s brilliant. She can say anything if you understand the `Affleckian’ language that is.” Jennifer explains, “She’ll says she wants a ‘bob’ ¬- that means grape. Mr ‘ack’ – that means outside. So if she says ‘ack bob mic mic’, she means, ‘Take my blanket or grape outside’. So if you speak ‘Klingon’ or whatever, you’re a genius and you too can speak the language my daughter speaks.” The couple married in June 2005. Violet was born in December of that year. She said recently that as a dad, Ben “does a good job. I mean, okay, maybe I wrote out what he was supposed to make for her to eat today while I was gone. But that’s just me being paranoid. He’s great – he can do it.” [26 January 2007]
