Um, Did Jennifer Garner Write a Book or Is This All an Elaborate Prank?

You can imagine our excitement when we woke up to find out that Jennifer Garner, host of the “Pretend Cooking Show” and Ina Garten 2.0, had written a book. We had so many questions. What’s it about? When will it launch? How can we get our hands on it??

Now we’re also asking, is this even real?

Garner posted the news of Bless Your Heart to her official Instagram account…so it’s not like we’re getting our info from a questionable source. She is holding a book in the video. 

The post is captioned: “I’m thrilled and finally able to share with all of you—I’ve written a book! This whole process has been humbling and illuminating, taking me deep into places I didn’t even know I could go. Thank you to every one who helped bring these stories to life and held my hand along the way. The time has come for me to share it—I can’t wait to hear what you think. XX Jen”

But there’s one tiny telltale sign that makes us think she’s pulling our leg. If you squint your eyes and look reaaally closely, you can see that the cover reads, “Forward by my therapist.”

Jen, if this all really is an elaborate April Fools’ Day joke, we’re actually kind of crushed. You win this one.
