"It will affect (shooting)," said Abrams. "But I think we have overcome a lot of other issues and things. I think the show will be a little bit different because of it, but Jennifer is so excited about everything right now..."
When asked how he planned to write Garner's growing belly into the show, Abrams replied, "I think every Alias (she plays) will just be a pregnant person. (laughs)"
In regards to Garner's physically demanding scenes, the producer says she will probably have to take it easy this season. "I'm sure kickboxing is probably out."
Neither Jennifer Garner nor Ben Affleck, who the actress is reportedly engaged to, have confirmed or denied Garner's pregnancy to "Access Hollywood" or any other news outlet.
