To celebrate the birth of their first child, Violet (born December 2005), Ben Affleck gave his wife a glittery new gift, which she nearly lost. "[Ben] gave me this beautiful diamond ring and I was playing with it and ... it fell off. And it fell under this ice maker in the house," she said during a 2007 appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly. Unbeknownst to Affleck, "the plumber had to come and dismantle the thing from under the house. And he found it."
