Jennifer Garner Affleck made her first public appearance this week, since giving birth to daughter Violet in December last year. Jennifer has spent the last two months in Georgia with her husband Ben Affleck and their new daughter, but returned to Los Angeles to host an event for the I Have a Dream Foundation at the House of Blues. Although Jennifer had left Violet in the safe hands of her Daddy, she confessed, "I’m checking my watch, yes…but I’m okay… I’m happy to be here!" Jennifer revealed that, although this type of work has always been important to her, "now that ‘Alias’ is going away, I hope to get more involved with kids directly." Maternity leave is over for Mrs. Affleck – she returns to work as the expectant Sydney Bristow this Wednesday.
