Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are NOT adopting, despite a new tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the report, which also falsely claims their divorce is off.

The new cover of OK! blares, “Ben & Jen Surprise Adoption!” The deceptive magazine uses old photos to trick readers into thinking Garner and Affleck have reunited, and even already have their new “girl.” Inside the issue, a headline declares, “Ben & Jen Adopting A Girl.”

It’s further said, “Now that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are 100 percent back together, they’ve got lots to celebrate — including their just-hatched plan to welcome a new baby to their family!” A so-called “insider” claims to the tabloid, “They’ve fully recommitted to their marriage.” The magazine then notes, “Now, in tribute to their newly rebuilt relationship, the source says Ben and Jen have decided to finally move forward on something Jen has long wanted to do: adopt!”

“They’ve been talking about it for years,” the publication’s “source” alleges. And when Affleck supposedly “suggested” recently “that it might be time to begin the process,” the snitch claims, “For Jen, that was a game changer… It was cathartic for her. She completely melted and dropped her defenses. Jen knows it’s the biggest commitment Ben could possibly make to become a father again.”

And so, it’s said that “now it’s just a matter of being matched with the right baby.” “Ben wanted Jen to choose the gender, and she definitely wants another girl,” adds the alleged tipster. Of course, OK! has spent much of the last year wrongly claiming Garner and Affleck are back together. The outlet even claimed back in a June cover story that Garner was pregnant with Affleck’s baby.

As Gossip Cop accurately said then, she was NOT expecting. Garner and Affleck are not adopting now, either. “There is no truth to this,” Gossip Cop is exclusively told by an impeccable contact.
