Jennifer Garner wants you to know good genes run in the family.

The 42-year-old actress poses with her mother, Patricia, and sisters, Melissa and Susannah, for the new issue of Southern Living, admitting that, although she's married to Ben Affleck, being a "Garner girl" is her true identity.

“Being the middle sister of these three girls is the relationship that defines me more than anything else," she said. "More than being my kids’ mother, more than being my husband’s wife, I’m first and foremost the middle Garner girl.”


Garner also confessed that this family photo shoot gave her the chance to prove she's all-natural.

“We are doing this shoot so people can finally stop asking if my lips are real," she laughed, adding that vanity was never important while growing up. “What my mom did that I valued so much was to not place beauty high on the list of priorities. It was a shock when I got to college to hear people say I was pretty.”
