When people expect a baby, they buy onesies, bibs and diapers.

In preparation for the arrival of their little one, expectant parents Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck bought a $16 million, 9,900-square-foot mansion in Brentwood, Los Angeles, Us Weekly magazine reported.

Garner, who is in her fifth month of pregnancy, Affleck, and their two-year-old daughter Violet won’t be the only superstar residents in the neighborhood. The new estate owners will be joining the Spider-man movie star Tobey Maguire and talk show host Ricki Lake in the posh Brentwood area.

Affleck and Garner’s new luxury home is comprised of seven bedrooms, seven baths, six fireplaces, a brick wine cellar, a library and a three-car garage. The estate also includes a pool, pool house and outdoor fireplace in addition to a large lawn, seating area and a deck with a built-in barbeque, reported the magazine.

The house was designed by local architects Brooks and Steve Gianetti. Construction on the new home is scheduled for completion before Garner gives birth.

Kevin Smith, Affleck’s friend and collaborator, revealed that the couple was looking for a bigger home last month, soon after the couple was spotted house-hunting in the city.
