June 30, 2005

Did Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner run off and get married in a secret ceremony?

Yes -- Us Weekly can confirm that Garner and Affleck did get married. Senior writer Joey Bartolomeo says the marriage took place on a beach on the beautiful Caribbean island of Turks and Caicos.

Garner and Affleck worked together on the 2002 movie "Daredevil," but they did not start dating until last year, after Ben and Jennifer Lopez broke up.

Also, for the first time, Garner's people confirmed today that Garner is in fact pregnant. "They are already expecting a baby," Bartolomeo said. "The baby is going to be due in the fall, and it's going to be written into 'Alias,' and they're very excited about it."

The newlyweds are now reportedly heading to Garner's hometown to celebrate with family.

Next rumor: has Michael Jackson left the country?

Yes -- the king of acquittals is now vacationing in the exotic nation of Bahrain. Jackson is reportedly staying in the palace, as a guest of the prince. "Extra" has learned he came to the Middle East alone.

Meanwhile, does Martha Stewart have a new career as a chef?

No -- While it sure looked that way when we spotted the domestic diva wearing her big white hat in a New York kitchen, Stewart was just taping a segment for her new daily talk show, which will debut in the fall.

And finally, is "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul being courted by another show?

Yes -- The FOX network is developing a new dancing reality show, and according to a published report, the show's producers want Paula, who is a singer and dancer, to be involved. They are trying to work things around her "Idol" schedule.
