Jennifer Garner is really feeling the difference between raising girls and boys.

During a Tuesday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the actress admits she’s taken a hit — literally! — when it comes to her 7-month-old baby boy, Samuel.

“I mean, [my daughters] didn’t pee in my eye,” the Butter star, 40, jokes with Ellen DeGeneres.

But despite the slick spots, Garner says her “really, really, really sweet” son has no qualms about sharing the spotlight with his sisters Seraphina, 3½, and Violet, 6½.

“I don’t know if it’s because he’s a boy. I don’t know if it’s because he’s my third and I forget that I have him,” she shares. “You’re just dealing with two and then you think, ‘I swear I put a baby down somewhere.’ And you kind of walk through the house, ‘There you are!’ and he’s just happy as can be.”

Soaking up her son’s latest stage before he’s mobile, the mom-of-three is thrilled Samuel has become her biggest fan. “He reaches when he sees me and he laughs a lot,” she says. “He thinks I’m super funny. What more do you want?”

But while Garner is thrilled with her baby boy, she reveals she and husband Ben Affleck weren’t seeking a specific sex. In fact, according to Garner, when it comes to spending time with his daughters, the Argo actor/director “excels” at all-things girlie.

“He’s all about [tea parties]. He can do it without using any energy at all. He can sit there and be almost asleep and they think they’re having an incredible game with him. It’s skill,” she says with a laugh.

Having recently voiced opposing opinions on adding to their brood in the future, Garner jokes she is not currently pregnant — and doesn’t plan to be — but can make no guarantees.

“My husband is kind of a wonder sperm kind of guy,” she shares. “You just have a look at him, you can see why…”
