Jennifer Garner welcomed a new daughter!

It's snakes, snails and puppy dog tails for adorable Hollywood supercouple Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, who on February 27 added a baby boy to their brood. The duo bucked traditional Tinsel Town temptation and named their tyke Samuel Garner Affleck. The little guy joins big sisters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3, and makes Ben and Jen the newest members of the February 2012 celebrity baby club. Wondering which other celebs had their parent papers stamped during the year's shortest month? Here's a quick round-up.

At 46, Robert Downey Jr., who famously spilled the baby gender beans during a December "Tonight Show" interview, became a dad for the second time on February 7 when his wife Susan gave birth to their first child together, a son. Little Exton Elias weighed in at 7 lbs 5 oz and stretched to 20 inches in length. In addition to mom and dad, Exton joins his big bro Indio, who's a whopping 18 years his senior. Can you say built in baby-sitter? Oh yeah.

Just a day after Exton hit the Tinsel Town scene, "Full House" actress Marla Sokoloff delivered her own tiny treasure in daughter Elliotte Anne. The tot, who is the 31-year old actress' first child with husband Alec Puro, was born at 8:05 PM Pacific time in California on February 8. A few days later, the new mama Tweeted about her sweet bundle, telling followers " Thank you all for the baby love! Little Miss Elliotte is positively delicious and we are in some serious love over here. Xox"

Moving down the line, February 10 was the big day for Jason Bateman and wife Amanda Anka, who welcomed their second daughter into the fam and reminded us that sometimes celebs pick strange baby names. Maple (yes, like the tree) Sylvie joins older sis Francesca, 5. On the same day, 29-year old "Jungle 2 Jungle" actor Sam Huntington's wife Rachel gave birth to a baby girl. He spilled the birthing beans subtle style via a February 16 Tweet to followers that read " Reason for twitter absence: hmm, nothing really comes to mind. Oh, I had a baby girl on Friday. So there's that."

So who's up next? Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie are expecting their first, a bitty boy, in March. "Supernatural" star Jared Padalecki is also warming up to welcome his first with wife Genevieve Cortese before the Spring thaw. Keep your eyes open for the news.
