May we have your attention, fans! We have some good and huge news:

Peter Sarsgaard is not going to be homeless.

The Garden State star, fiancee Maggie Gyllenhaal and their newborn baby, Ramona, were about to be evicted from their New York City apartment after a dispute with their landlords. The young family faced eviction from their $5,000-a-month pad in downtown Manhattan after two of the three owners of her building argued they didn’t have a valid lease.

The owners began eviction proceeding against Sarsgaard and Gyllenhaal back in February, claiming her lease wasn’t valid because it had only been signed by the third owner of the apartment.

Gyllenhaal, 28, filed an affidavit reading:

“I am residing in the subject premises pursuant to a lease duly executed by one of the owners of the subject premises.”

Manhattan Civil Court Judge Marc Finkelstein agreed, noting that “she has paid and continues to pay all the rent under that lease.”

The sister of Jake Gyllenhaal moved into the apartment in 2005, and has the option to stay through the end of 2007, but the lengthy dispute has apparently convinced the couple it is high time they moved on.

Maggie and Peter, also known as Gyllenhaarsgaard, have reportedly signed a contract to buy a townhouse in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Good for our favorite Hollywood couple.
