Ben Affleck spent his second day at the DNC helping pack boxes of food for the needy, and last night Jennifer Garner arrived to watch the speeches, including Obama's surprise appearance. Ben is probably doing a lot of schmoozing, though it sounds like one convention attendee he isn't jumping to call is his ex Jennifer Lopez. Ben was eager, however, to chat about Matt Damon's new baby girl. Affleck said, "I've kind of been texting him back and forth, and he's doing great and [wife] Lucy is doing great. Anybody who has a child is excited, I think, no matter what the gender is. They are thrilled. The thing that people really want, when you get down to it, is a healthy child." While we wouldn't be surprised if Ben would like a son, sounds like a perfectly diplomatic answer for a political event.
