Jennifer Garner is opening up about her bad parenting skills, husband Ben Affleck's wonder sperm and getting parenting tips from the world's most famous family!

Mom-of-three Jen was being interviewed by Ellen DeGeneres for Thursday’s show and got heaps of laughs from the audience as she jokingly talked about her terrible parenting skills and who she plans to get a little help from.

“Oh man ... we’ll talk to Brad and Angie - they seem to have it together,” she quipped.

Ellen replied: “I don't know how they remember all the names because they have like 10 kids don't they?”

Jennifer joked: “I call my kid Shiloh sometimes.”

She also revealed that she doesn’t want any more kids but that Ben is a “wonder sperm kind of guy."

She said about baby son Samuel: “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 ... you know, you're dealing with two, and then you think ‘Oh I put a baby down ... I swear I put a baby down’ ... and you walk through the house and there he is ... just happy as can be!”

Ellen then teasingly threatened to call child services on Jennifer and told her she was not coming off as a good parent!

Jennifer also revealed that her two daughters adore their daddy Ben and that he has tea parties with them.

However, he often falls asleep while they’re playing, said Jennifer, and the girls don’t even notice – more proof of terrible parenting, according to a mock stern Ellen.

She said: “And 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.”

The 40-year-old actress also said: “Samuel is perfect right now because he doesn't move ... but he sleeps well, and he reaches when he sees me and he laughs a lot ... he thinks I'm super funny - so what  more do you want?”

Ellen asked whether seven-month-old Samuel is already different from her two daughters at that age.

Jennifer joked: “I mean, he didn't pee in my eye.”
