may be getting bigger as she awaits the birth of her second child
, but she’s only getting more beautiful, according to good friend Victor Garber.
“She’s with child and she’s never been more beautiful,” Garber said at the Fourth Annual GLSEN Respect Awards/Los Angeles in Beverly Hills Friday night.
In fact, says Garber, a close family friend and Garner’s former Alias
costar, “She’s wonderful. She’s probably the best mother I’ve ever witnessed.”
And Garber is certain the actress – who is about six months pregnant – will have no problem handling her and husband Ben Affleck’s expanding brood, agreeing with
another of Garner’s costars, He’s Just Not That Into You
's Bradley Cooper.
“It’s her second child,” Garber laughs. “She knows what to do.”
Garber, who currently stars in the ABC TV show Eli Stone
, was the only other person present at Garner and Affleck's 2005 wedding. The couple have one daughter, 2-year-old Violet.
