Baby girl for Garner and Affleck?



NEW YORK - Are Ben and Jen expecting a girl?

When a pregnant Jennifer Garner appeared on NBC's "Tonight Show" on Tuesday night, host Jay Leno asked, "So what do we have here? A boy or a girl? Do you know yet?"

"We have one or the other for sure," replied Garner, who is married to her "Daredevil" co-star Ben Affleck. Later in the show, Garner seemed to refer to her baby bump as a "she."

"You can just start to feel really pregnant. Like you are the hugest person on the face of the planet.... And then I felt just bigger and bigger like she..." Oops. Garner put both hands over her mouth.

The 33-year-old actress stars as Sydney Bristow on ABC's "Alias," which returns Thursday for its fifth season.

Garner's pregnancy was written into the show, even though her character is a globe-trotting spy.

"My stand-in has a little bump. My stunt double has a bump, and the other day I walked in, and my stunt double just looked a little different to me and I said, 'Did they graduate your bump?'... And she said, 'Yeah, we went to a bigger bump.'"

Garner and Affleck were wed in June. Their baby is due around Christmas.
