sunglasses Jennifer Garner scarf jeans shopping

Apparently no one offered Jennifer Garner a few million dollars to lose her baby weight ... but she's getting there, slowly but surely!

Hey, if you're a mother of three, 40-years-old and just gave birth just over two months ago, there's no hurry -- and we give Jen serious props for not doing the usual C-section/tummy tuck procedure a lot of Hollywood moms have. She's doing it the natural way!

The actress spent Wednesday with her mom in Pacific Palisades, as the two hit up a local nail salon for some pre-Mother's Day pampering. These two have a lot to celebrate this weekend, with Jen's beautiful daughters and baby boy Samuel at home!
