After months of speculation, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have tied the knot — and she’s pregnant.

Representatives for both Affleck and Garner confirmed the marriage to The Associated Press on Thursday. The publicists, Ken Sunshine and Nicole King, also for the first time confirmed that Garner is pregnant with her first child.

Sunshine and King would not give any other details.

The confirmation came after Us Weekly reported that Affleck, 32, and Garner, 33, were wed Wednesday at the Parrot Cay resort in the Caribbean islands of Turks and Caicos. The National Enquirer also released photos they claimed showed Garner arriving on the islands

In April, E! Online reported that Garner, star of TV's "Alias," was expecting the couple's first child. Reports have since said that the baby is a girl due in November, though those facts have not been confirmed.

Affleck and Garner met when they starred as romantically involved superheroes Daredevil and Elektra in 2003's "Daredevil," but did not start dating until last year.

In stark contrast to Affleck’s much publicized relationship with Jennifer Lopez, which earned the media nickname "Bennifer," he and Garner have been tightlipped about their romance from the start. Aside from appearing at a Boston Red Sox game last fall, they have stayed out of the public eye.

She has been filming the drama “Catch and Release†in Vancouver, Canada. Affleck will star as George Reeves, television’s Superman, in the upcoming movie “Truth, Justice, and the American Way.â€

This is the first marriage for Affleck and the second for Garner. The “Alias†star divorced actor Scott Foley in March 2004 after 3 1/2 years of marriage.

Affleck and Lopez called off their September 2003 wedding and broke off their engagement in January 2004. Lopez married singer Marc Anthony later that year.
