Actress Jennifer Garner has sparked reports she's planning to ring in the New Year with a new baby after checking into a California hospital on New Year's Eve (31Dec08).
The star is nine months pregnant with her second child and she and husband Ben Affleck were spotted entering Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Wednesday (31Dec08).
Garner was reluctant to reveal she was expecting until she was five months pregnant, but her thrilled mother-in-law and her former Alias co-star Victor Garber let the baby news slip in July (08).
The actress told People magazine at the time, "It always makes me laugh when people say 'Is she? Isn't she?' It's like, 'Eventually you will know, so just chill out for a minute."
Garner and Affleck have a two-year-old daughter called Violet.
