Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are NOT calling off their divorce and having a fourth child together, despite a completely inaccurate tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. We’re told it’s “nonsense.”

According to In Touch, the actress was on the brink of formally filing for divorce from her estranged husband, but he recently took action to win her back. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “He begged her to give him one more chance. Believe me, Ben knows hot to turn on the charm, big-time. He promised to stay sober and step up as an active parent and husband more than ever.”

The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “Ben and Jen have decided to have another baby. They’ve always been at their happiest when they focus on their family life. A baby would help begin a new chapter in their relationship as they move forward.” But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the estranged spouses, who exclusively assures us they haven’t reconciled, nor are they having another baby. We’re told the tabloid’s claim otherwise is complete “nonsense.”

Of course, we have repeatedly called out In Touch for publishing incorrect stories about the former couple, so this latest fabrication comes as no surprise. In fact, the tabloid wrongly reported earlier this month that Garner was dating a new mystery man, but it seems to have dropped that bogus narrative in favor of this new one. Gossip Cop also previously busted the publication’s tall tale about Affleck’s mom begging Garner to call off their divorce. This latest claim is equally untrue.
