Report: Alias star gives birth!

She will soon be finished playing a secret agent on television, but Alias star Jennifer Garner is reported to be just beginning her real-life role as a mother.

The actress, whose pregnancy was written into the storyline of her Alias character this season, has given birth to her first child, a daughter, with actor-husband Ben Affleck, Us Weekly magazine reported on its Web site on Thursday.

A publicist for Garner, 33, could not immediately be reached for comment. Affleck's representative declined to confirm or deny the report.

Us Weekly reported on its Web site that the birth came after doctors induced labor at a Los Angeles hospital Wednesday night, a week before Garner's expected due date. The magazine quoted an unidentified friend of the couple as saying Affleck, 33, was with his spouse "the entire time."

The couple simultaneously announced their marriage, and Garner's pregnancy, in June. The pair were widely reported to have begun dating last year, months after Affleck and former girlfriend Jennifer Lopez called off their highly publicized engagement.

Affleck and Garner first worked together on the 2001 film Pearl Harbor and costarred in the 2003 superhero action film Daredevil, leading to Garner's big-screen spin-off role in this year's Elektra.

Garner is best known for her role on the ABC espionage thriller Alias, in which she plays the sexy, globe-trotting spy Sydney Bristow.

The Houston-born actress filed for divorce from her first husband, actor Scott Foley, in 2003, after 2 1/2 years of marriage. They had no children.

Garner was one of the other nurses in Pearl Harbor. If you watch it again, look for the nurse with the glasses. I didn't notice it till someone pointed out to me!

Also, Congrats Jen and Ben!

Jennifer Garner was not in Pearl Harbor, I guess they were thinking about Kate Beckinsale.
