Several sources have confirmed that Jennifer Garner, star of the ABC spy series Alias, is expecting a child with movie hunk Ben Affleck. The two have been dating for several months.
Baby or not, Garner is keeping her busy schedule, filming movies and resuming production on her show. A November due date will force the writers of Alias to deal with a potential problem: a female lead who is showing. Other shows have done it, but other shows also aren't full of slinky outfits and action-packed stunts.
Garner has been married once, to actor Scott Foley. Affleck was engaged to Jennifer Lopez, but their wedding was called off. Garner and Affleck have kept a low profile about their relationship, possibly due to the media madness surrounding the Affleck-Lopez pairing.
