Ben Affleck's girlfriend Jennifer Garner has sparked reports she's pregnant with the Hollywood hunk's baby after she was photographed with a bulging stomach.

The couple met on the set of 2003 movie DAREDEVIL and allegedly got engaged 11 days ago (22APR05) fuelling rumours they are expecting a child.

And celebrity experts insist it's unlikely Garner's swollen belly is a result of over-eating or lack of exercise, because she famously devotes herself to a gruelling health and fitness regime, reports British newspaper The Sun.

An insider says, "Jennifer was showing quite a big bump and she was walking very carefully.

"The bulge is out of proportion with the rest of her body, which is really toned. I'd say she's a few months gone."
