Affleck has since confirmed on his official Facebook page: "We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck."

Garner is believed to have been used as a middle name, rather than a double-barrelled surname.

The Valentine's Day actress gave birth to her first daughter with Affleck, Violet Anne, in 2005. They also have 3-year-old Seraphina Rose.

Garner revealed in January that the girls had suggested the new baby be named after a Disney character.

"It was like, Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck. And then they've moved on," she recalled. "Then it was Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Smee."
