    Ben and Jen: They Do!

    Jennifer Garner has gone where no woman has gone before--down the aisle with Ben Affleck.

    The twosome, who are expecting their first child together this fall, as E! Online first reported last month, exchanged vows Wednesday at the Parrot Cay resort in the Caribbean islands of Turks and Caicos.

    "They're married and they're expecting their first child," the newlweds' reps, Ken Sunshine and Nicole King, said in a sparse but official statement.

    The surprise nuptials were attended by Garner's Alias costar, Victor Garber, who looked on as the white-clad bride kissed her new husband following a sunset ceremony, per the National Enquirer.

    Garner and Affleck spent their first night as a married couple at the Parrot Cay resort, per Us Weekly, but were believed to be leaving to spend the Fourth of July weekend in Charleston, West Virginia, at Garner's family home.

    The couple have been dating since last year. They met on the set of 2003's Daredevil, in which they starred as superhero lovers Daredevil and Elektra.

    The duo first went public with their romance when they were spotted snuggling at Boston's Fenway Park while watching Affleck's beloved Red Sox in the World Series.

    In April, Affleck reportedly flew the Alias star's nearest and dearest out to California for a surprise 33rd birthday bash at Garner's Brentwood abode and used the occasion to pop the question.

    Garner's first marriage to Felicity costar Scott Foley ended in April 2003; the divorce was finalized in March 2004.

    Affleck's much publicized engagement to Jennifer Lopez ended shortly after the pair called off their September 2003 nuptials.

    In addition to honeymooning and preparing for parenthood, the twosome are staying focused on their day jobs.

    Garner has been shooting the drama Catch and Release in Vancouver and is expected back on set Monday. She also recently signed on to produce and star in a remake of the Japanese film, Be with You and is slated to begin production on the next season of Alias in July.

    Affleck, who's been plagued by a series of box-office flops in recent years, will next be seen in the comedy Man About Town. Up ahead, he stars in Truth, Justice and the American Way with Adrien Brody and Diane Lane.
