LOS ANGELES, July 18 (UPI) — Canadian actor Victor Garber is denying he told a magazine that his former “Alias” co-star, Jennifer Garner, is pregnant with her second child.
Usmagazine.com quoted Garber as saying, “Yes, she is,” when asked if Garner and her husband, actor Ben Affleck, are expecting a sibling for their 2-year-old daughter, Violet.
Usmagazine.com quoted another source as saying, “(Garner) is five months pregnant. They are very happy.”
Rumors about Garner’s alleged second pregnancy have been swirling for weeks, mainly due to Garner’s and Affleck’s recent comments about wanting to expand their family. Adding fuel to the spectulation is the fact Garner has been photographed wearing loose-fitting clothes this summer.
Garber told E! News that Usmagazine.com took his words out of context.
“I haven’t confirmed that at all, no,” Garber told E! News. “I know they want to have another child and hopefully that’s true, but I don’t know that. … No, I know that they are hoping to be. I just don’t know that it’s for sure. It’s a very… personal thing.”
Surprise! I am in the middle of converting Jen’s site to WordPress but wanted to put it up before the conversion is finished because of the exciting news of Jennifer’s pregnancy.
More goodies to come in the coming weeks! I hope you like the new site.
Jennifer Garner and husband Ben Affleck are expecting another baby, Garner’s former Alias co-star Victor Garber confirms to Usmagazine.com
“Yes, she is,” Garber – who officiated the couple’s 2005 wedding – told Us when asked if recent speculation was true that the couple is expecting.
A source adds, “She is five months pregnant. They are very happy.”
Garner, 36, and Affleck, 35, are parents to two-year-old daughter Violet – one of Us’ Babies of the Year.
“Honestly, that child is so inquisitive and so full of life — it’s all Jennifer and Ben!” Garber gushed to Usmagazine.com in November 2007. “I have to say, he’s an amazing dad and together, she’s a very fortunate little girl to be in that family!”
Garner hinted in October that she wanted to have another child.
“We definitely wonder what it would be like to have another – hopefully, knock on wood, someday,” Garner told Britain’s Marie Claire. “My job is great to have as a mom. I get to take breaks and then work in a really concentrated way. During that concentrated time, it sucks, but whatever.”
Photos of Garner in loose fitting tops have had Web sites speculating about a bun in the oven for weeks.
Reps only confirmed Garner’s first pregnancy after she and Affleck tied the knot on the Turks and Caicos on June 29, 2005.
When it comes to Violet, Garner has revealed she’s a total daddy’s girl.
“You know how as a kid you picture yourself with a tall, handsome husband, and you imagine him cuddling your baby?” Ben is like that, like, on crack,” she told the May 2007 issue of In Style. “Violet prefers him to anyone. He’s a teddy bear of a guy. Nothing makes me happier than to see the two of them together and her little hands on his face. He has a prevailing calm. Of course, he has the benefit of sleep.”
Affleck recently opened up to Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush about his happy family life.
“Things couldn’t be better. We’re kind of taking it easy and just kind of enjoying a little downtime at home,” Affleck said.
