Jennifer Garner on the Cover of InStyle

Jennifer Garner is featured on the cover of the new issue of InStyle magazine. In the accompanying article this busy mom-of-two talks motherhood and sleep deprivation.

Some highlights:

On having a cover shoot just six weeks after welcoming daughter Seraphina:
"Violet wanted me to rock her. The baby was ready to nurse. Ben was trying to have a conversation with me in the middle of the night for some reason. I didn't sleep! I would think I looked appropriate for someone who had a baby six weeks ago. Except they don't go together, having a baby and then six weeks later sitting for a cover shoot for your favorite magazine."

On husband, Ben Affleck, helping with the daily tasks of two young daughters:
“He dresses [Violet] and does her hair. It’s pretty funny. You can always tell when he has been at it, just two random barrettes hanging in there. It’s so sweet.”

On daughter Seraphina (now 3 months):
"With Sera, I'm so sure of her sweetness as a person. She’s taught me that there's an innate goodness in people that's real. And it's there from birth."

On daughter Violet teaching her to slow down and appreciate life:
“Once, when she was 6-months-old, I was nursing her and kind of in a hurry. I was impatient, and she was really taking her time, just staring at the ceiling. So I looked up, and the way the light was playing on the ceiling was so beautiful. I wouldn’t have noticed that on my own.”
