A boy for Affleck and Garner?

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are expecting their third child, and sources tell Life & Style that it will be their first boy. Affleck is reportedly thrilled to have a “little sports buddy,” the source says. “He can’t wait to take his son to baseball games and play catch with him.” As for Garner, she “feels like she won’t know what to do. She’s close to her two sisters, and her instincts were spot-on with the girls. But she never had a brother and doesn’t know the drill.”

Phone hacker arrested
The FBI have arrested 35-year-old Florida resident Christopher Chaney in connection with Scarlett Johansson’s nude photo scandal, according to TMZ. Law enforcement officials claim he hacked into the actress’ phone and e-mail using public information. Chaney is also believed to have also targeted Vanessa Hudgens, Ali Larter, Jessica Alba and Christina Aguilera — more than 50 victims in total. If convicted on all counts, he faces 121 years in federal prison.

Could a girl inherit the throne?

British Prime Minister David Cameron is working to change a law to ensure that if Prince William’s first-born child is a girl, she can still be Queen, according to People magazine. Currently, if William and Kate’s first child is a daughter but their second is a son, the boy would inherit the throne. “We espouse gender equality in all other aspects of life, and it is an anomaly that in the rules relating to the highest public officer we continue to enshrine male superiority,” Cameron wrote in a statement.
