"We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck," Affleck, 39, announced via Facebook on Wednesday.

Little Samuel joins big sisters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3. Friends and family have already met the bundle of joy -- and he's a "peanut," one pal cooed.

It looks like Violet and Seraphina's name suggestions went unheeded by mom and dad. Garner, who announced her pregnancy in August 2011, explained that her little girls had some Disney-themed monikers picked out for their brother.

"They suggested] Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck…and then they moved on...[to] Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Smee," Garner said.
