Alias Dad Passes the Buck on Jen & Ben Pregnancy

As Angelina knows all too well, those costars can be real bean spillers sometimes. But Victor Garber isn't one of them.

The actor who played Jennifer Garner's dad on Alias tells E! News that his words were taken out of context when UsMagazine.com quoted him responding, "Yes, she is," to the question of whether Garner was expecting child No. 2 with hubby Ben Affleck.

"I haven't confirmed that at all, no," Garber said tonight at an ABC event. "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," the Eli Stone star added. "I just don't know that it's for sure. It's a very...personal thing."

None of which means, however, that Garner isn't pregnant.

Tabloids started bulging earlier this month with reports that the 36-year-old Juno star, who's been sporting more loose-fitting tops than usual, is with child. The National Enquirer quoted a source last week saying, "A few days before the Fourth of July, Jen began calling close pals with the news that she was pregnant again."

Then again, Affleck may have already confirmed the good news in May, but what happened in Britain stayed in Britain.

Talking to the UK's Times newspaper about whether he would like to someday direct his wife in a film, he said he'd love to, "but she might just want to work with a real director."

"And we’re going to have another baby soon," he added, "now that we’ve figured out how to do it. We want lots of kids.”

Then there was Wednesday's Ben & Jen sighting at a Los Angeles obstetrician's office, as noted by E! Online Senior Editor Marc Malkin.

Hmmm...

Affleck and Garner tied the knot on June 29, 2005. Daughter Violet was born later that year, on Dec. 1.

My, how their garden does seem to be growing.
