Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have officially welcomed their second daughter - and one of the first celebrity babies of 2009!

The actress's rep tells People magazine as of last night: "Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck gave birth to a healthy baby girl."

The baby was born Tuesday in Los Angeles. No other details were immediately available. Garner and Affleck, 36, are also parents to daughter Violet, 3.

According to reports, a smiling Garner was spotted being wheeled on a roll-away hospital bed as she was taken to her room. A blanket was draped over her, and it appeared that she was holding the baby. Shortly after, the hospital staff brought in a portable bassinet and heart monitor to check on the baby.

In the weeks leading up to the birth, Jennifer Garner stayed close to home, picking up Violet from preschool and even treating herself to a mani-pedi.

Just days before giving birth, Jen was spotted with Violet at the Farmer's Market in Pacific Palisades and grabbing a decaf coffee at Caffe Luxxe in Santa Monica with a girlfriend. Ben was probably there for moral support.

Garner confirmed her second pregnancy in August.

Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell, her husband of a year and a half, have welcomed twin girls, Howard Stern announced on his Sirius radio show Monday morning.

News that the two were expecting first broke in July. A month later, O'Connell joked that he was already feeling protective of his unborn daughters.

"Just the fact that they're girls, you know?" he said. "I don't want them to date. They're only allowed to date men who run countries. They're only allowed to date men who are heir to the throne or are currently running a nation."

It wasn't easy for ger to get pregnant, but Rebecca Romijn - who skipped pal Stern's wedding to Beth Ostrosky because of bed rest - revealed that the twin girls were ultimately conceived without the help of in vitro fertilization or drugs.

"A year ago, we tried [fertility drug] Clomid for a couple of months unsuccessfully," she said. "But by the second month, I was like, 'Ahhh! I hate this!' I think when you start messing with your own hormones, it's crazy-making."

As for O'Connell, we're guessing he had no trouble doing his part. Dude was seeing Rebecca Romijn nude on a nightly basis, after all.

Alaska Governor and former Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin welcomed her first grandchild this week, but admitted that she felt both fear and despair when she first learned that her teenage daughter Bristol was expecting.

"We are over the moon with the arrival of this healthy, beautiful baby," Sarah Palin said in a statement dated December 31 and posted Friday. "The road ahead for this young couple will not be easy, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy."

Brad, Angelina and Six Kids!

Baby Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston was born to Bristol Palin and her boyfriend Levi Johnston on December 27. Both Bristol and Levi are 18 years old.

Bristol Palin's pregnancy was revealed shortly after her mother was named as John McCain's running mate in August, and became a campaign talking point.

Sarah Palin, a devout and pro-life Christian, always put a positive spin on her daughter's pregnancy, but in the statement issued this week, admitted to feeling afraid after learning she was to become a grandmother this year.

"When Bristol and [Levi Johnston] first told us the shocking news that she was pregnant, to be honest, we all at first looked at the situation with some fear and a bit of despair," Palin said. "But isn't it just like God to turn those circumstances into such an amazing, joyful blessing when you ask Him to help you through?"

In the same statement, Bristol Palin said becoming a teen mother was "not ideal" and spoke out against teen pregnancy.

"Teenagers need to prevent pregnancy to begin with - this isn't ideal," she said before thanking her "supportive family which is dealing with this together."

Bristol Palin will return to high school next week to earn the final credit that she needs to graduate, according to the statement. It was unclear if she intended to pursue any higher education upon completing high school.

Levi Johnston will finish high school as he works as an electrician apprentice. His mom, Sherry Johnston, was recently arrested on felony drug charges.

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin hasn't yet said anything publicly about her four-day-old grandson, Tripp Johnston, but she does want people to know that Tripp's parents – Palin's daughter Bristol and her fiancé Levi Johnston - are hard at work.

"You need to know that both Levi and Bristol are working their butts off to parent and going to school and working at the same time," Palin told People in a phone message Wednesday. "They are certainly not high school dropouts."

The former GOP V.P. candidate said she wanted to be clear about their continuing work toward high school degrees because suggesting otherwise "harms Bristol's reputation and Levi's reputation and their chances for good work opportunities."

Sarah and Todd Palin became proud grandparents when their oldest daughter Bristol Palin gave birth to her first child, Tripp, with Levi Johnston.

Bristol Palin, 18, who gave birth Saturday, is intending to finish her high school degree through correspondence courses. Levi, also 18, has said that he left high school to enroll in an apprenticeship program training him as an electrician.

Sarah Palin said at the time that she hoped Levi would eventually earn his GED, adding that "I respect that Levi is out there working hard."

We recommend that Levi follow the same career path as his mother, Sherry Johnston. Prescription drug dealing is a pretty recession-proof field.

While the rest of us are out popping champagne this New Year's Eve, Jennifer Garner might be popping out the last celebrity baby of 2008 - or the first of 2009!

That's just us speculating, of course - but here's a picture of Jen and her husband Ben Affleck spotted about an hour ago going into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center ...

Ben and Jen at the Hospital

They could just be going in for a routine visit, or for something unrelated, but if this is the day Violet's little brother or sister is born, we couldn't be happier!

When Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin confirmed that her teenage daughter, Bristol Palin, was expecting a baby, the celebrity gossip world believed the first photos of her newborn child would likely spark a bidding war among several publications.

Looks like Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston, born December 28 to Bristol and her baby daddy, Levi Johnston, is already delivering on that promise.

Tiger Woods' Son

According to one source, bidding for the celebrity baby photos began at $100,000. People won out in the end, but In Touch Weekly was the only other weekly to make serious bids, according to several sources involved in the process.

STRAIGHT TRIPPIN': That's actually Trig Palin, Sarah Palin's son, with Bristol and Levi. No photos of their baby, Tripp, have been released yet, but People won the rights.

The price didn't soar immediately, according to sources, because Sarah Palin gossip just doesn’t sell all that well for the magazines on newsstands.

“Sarah was on the cover of People, Us Weekly, and OK! the same week, and really only People saw a bump in sales," says an inside source.

But then the recent, felony drug-related arrest of Levi Johnston's mother, Sherry Johnston, caused the price tag for the photos to go up suddenly.

"The bidding started well before the baby was born, but once Levi Johnston’s mom was arrested - well, then you had a story,” says one editor.

None of the magazines would confirm the exact figure for how much Bristol Palin made from the deal - most estimates hover around the $300,000 range.

No word on whether the money from the pics will go to charity, or whether it will all be spent on Sarah Palin's wardrobe and/or 2012 presidential bid.

Photographed en route to a performance of "All My Sons" for the 3,942nd time, Katie Holmes displayed prize accessory Suri Cruise - who spontaneously burst into song!

Or at least appeared to in this photo. It may have just been a cry for food or something. Really, we can't say. All we can do is enjoy pics of the world's #1 celebrity baby:

Perhaps little Suri is trying to send a message to her dad, Tom Cruise, that she does not want 8-9 brothers and sisters, as he has expressed interest in.

Who knows. But she sure is cute. Click to enlarge more photos ...

Bristol Palin, the 18-year-old daughter of former Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin, gave birth Sunday to a healthy baby boy in Palmer, Alaska.

"We think it's wonderful," said Colleen Jones, the sister of Bristol's grandmother Sally Heath (Sarah Palin's mother), who confirmed the exciting news early this evening.

"The baby is fine and Bristol is doing well. Everyone is excited."

The baby's name is Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston. Yes, Tripp. His name is actually less weird than we were predicting, considering that we're talking about Bristol Palin here. But at the same time, she lived up to the family standards nicely.

Tripp Johnston weighed seven pounds and four ounces at the time of his birth.

The little guy takes his surname from his dad, Levi Johnston, 18, a former Wasilla High School hockey player who has been dating Bristol for three years.

THE PROUD, UNWED PARENTS: Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston, both 18 and seen here at the Republican National Convention in August, have welcomed baby Tripp!

Bristol Palin is currently residing in her hometown of Wasilla, laying low and completing her high-school diploma through some correspondence courses.

Levi Johnston is in the process of studying to become an electrician. His mother, Sherry Johnston, was recently busted on several felony drug charges.

The eldest of Sarah and Todd Palin's three daughters (the couple also have two sons, Trig and Track), Bristol Palin made headlines with her pregnancy last summer, just as her mom was being selected as John McCain's running mate.

Bristol plan and Levi to wed in 2009 and raise the child together.
