The 'Town' star/director 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, February 29, 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.

Back in January, Affleck's wife, Garner, shared to TV host Jay Leno that her young daughters have some interesting ideas for their brother's name. "Our girls are working on names. At first they were definitely Disney," she said at the time. "It was like, Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck. And then they've moved on. Then it was Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Smee."

Affleck and Garner announced they were expecting their third child together in August 2011. Through their representatives, the Hollywood couple said in a simple statement that they were "thrilled" over the news. Earlier, it was reported that they welcomed their new bundle of joy, who joins sisters 6-year-old Violet and 3-year-old Seraphina, in Santa Monica, California.
