For Jennifer Garner, her sign came in the form of simply a feeling.
The 46-year-old actress co-hosted Ellen’s yearly Mother’s Day show on Thursday, exposing all the not so glamorous details of her pregnancy to an audience of pregnant women. Though Garner is now the mother to three children – two-year-old Violet, nine-year-old Seraphina, and six-year-old Samuel – her physician told her she wasn’t pregnant during the early stages of carrying Violet in 2005.
“I woke up that morning and I just knew. I peed on the stick and it was so faint,” Garner shared on The Ellen Show earlier this week.

“I was on my way to work and said, ‘Can I come in and have a proper test?'” Garnered continued.
“He gave me one and he said, ‘I don’t know… you’re not pregnant,’ and I said, ‘I am, I’m telling you I am’.
“So, she’s 12, and I don’t have that doctor anymore but I have her, so I won,” she concluded proudly.
