After months of speculation, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have tied the knot – and she is pregnant.
Representatives for both actors confirmed the marriage on Thursday. Their publicists, Ken Sunshine and Nicole King, also confirmed that Garner was pregnant with her first child.
Us Weekly reported that Affleck, 32, and Garner, 33, were wed on Wednesday at the Parrot Cay resort in the Caribbean islands of Turks and Caicos.
The National Enquirer also released photos it claimed showed Garner arriving on the islands with her Alias co-star Victor Garber.
In stark contrast to Affleck’s much-publicised relationship with Jennifer Lopez, he and Garner have been tight-lipped about their romance. Aside from appearing at a Boston Red Sox baseball game last year, they have stayed out of the public eye.
Reports in April about an engagement were never confirmed. In May, E! News reported that Garner was pregnant and the baby was due in November, but neither star confirmed that.
This is the first marriage for Affleck and the second for Garner, who divorced actor Scott Foley in March 2004 after three-and-a-half years of marriage.
