Jennifer Garner, while promoting her new film Catch and Release, spoke of how motherhood has changed her life.
Jennifer, 34, talked about life with her new baby, 1 year old Violet, with husband Ben Affleck, 34. Garner stated, "Having a baby fills your life in such a way that no matter what you're doing, there's something bigger. I've just been in heaven being with her the past year." Jennifer also said that she calls her mom now and says, "You know all the dinners you made that I said 'No' to and went off and ate peanut butter? I'm sorry. I get it. I slaved over roasting this, and (Violet) goes, 'No, no, no!' "
Garner also stated that she was rocking Violet and she was fascinated by the light hitting the ceiling. Jennifer realized that slowing down and going at her pace was such a gift, "God, for the past five years, I haven't stopped to look at light on the ceiling for (one) second."
Garner also spoke of losing her baby weight. She said it took a long time and she just wasn't motivated. Once she got on the treadmill and stopped eating so much, croissants, bagels, muffins - "all the good stuff," the weight finally came off.
Jennifer stated that Ben Affleck does a good job with Violet. "There's nothing more emotional than seeing your partner – the man you love – with your baby at any time: the first time, the second, yesterday, today. There's nothing more beautiful. "
