Anna Chlumsky, who shot to fame as a child star in 1991 s My Girl, has a little girl of her own now.

Chlumsky and her entrepreneur husband Shaun So, both 32, welcomed daughter Penelope Joan So on Thursday, July 11 in New York City, she tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“She’s a really good mix between my husband and me,” the Veep actress tells PEOPLE. “When she’s with him, you see him, and when she’s with me, you see me. She’s a perfect mix.”

“We think she has my mouth, but it’s hard to tell. Even the color of her eyes, they are different in different light. But she has a really full head of hair.”

It’s been quite a week for Chlumsky, who on Thursday also earned her first Emmy nomination for her work on Veep.

“I’m still in shock. When I got the call I wasn’t sleeping because I was breastfeeding my daughter,” she says. “It was neat because it was me and my husband and my daughter all in the room getting the news at the same time. When [my manager] told me, it was that nervous, happy, appreciative laughter. I just laughed a lot! It feels really great to have your work noticed.”

Not surprisingly, Chlumsky is on cloud nine about all the new developments. “I’m really, really happy. I’m just smiley,” she says. “I have this new bundle of love that’s now in my life. She has made my life even better.”

And motherhood? “I’m really surprised how real it is,” she says. “What’s really strange is how fast it happened. You prepare for so long, and all of a sudden the baby’s here … It’s seriously the best thing. Holding her is fantastic. It’s one of the more enjoyable things. It doesn’t get boring at all. I could hold her all day.”

Welcome, little Lady!

Lady Antebellum’s lead singer Hillary Scott and her husband, drummer Chris Tyrrell, are the proud parents of a baby girl, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Born Monday, July 22, in Nashville, Eisele Kaye Tyrrell weighed 7 lbs., 13 oz. The names honor Chris’s mother’s maiden name (pronounced Eyes-lee) and Hillary’s mother’s middle name.

“She is incredibly gorgeous,” the proud dad tells PEOPLE.

This is the first child for the couple, who, following a six-month engagement, were married in January 2012 during an intimate ceremony in upstate New York.

Scott, 27, announced the pregnancy in December, and revealed in March that they were expecting a girl. She also revealed one little quirk of her pregnancy.

“There was one night where I looked at my husband and I was like, ‘We really have to go to the grocery store because I need a Pop-Tart right now,” Scott said. “That’s really one of the only cravings I’ve had, that and sleep.”

The band, which includes Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, recently released “Goodbye Town,” the second single off their album, Golden.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Welcome a Son


We have a new royal.

The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William have welcomed their first child, a son, PEOPLE confirms.

The news the world’s been waiting for since Kate went into London’s St. Mary’s Hospital early Monday morning was revealed Monday afternoon, some four hours after the Duchess, 31, gave birth.

The message was delivered in a press release, stating that a son was born at 4:24 p.m., weighing 8 lbs., 6 oz. After about 14 hours of labor, Kate had a natural delivery.

With a broad smile the couple’s press secretary Ed Perkins took the announcement to a waiting blue Jaguar to be whisked to the palace.

Kate and William wanted to spend a bit of time with their baby and make their phone calls. But William, 31, personally told the Queen, his father, Prince Charles and wife Camilla and brother Prince Harry.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh “are delighted” by the news.

Kate’s parents were also called.

“It’s been a wonderful day and everyone’s delighted,” says a palace source.

British Prime Minister David Cameron is also among those informed, along with other high-ranking officials.

The waiting crowds celebrated near St. Mary’s. The theatrical presentation of the birth news will continue when the notice is placed on an easel on the Buckingham Palace forecourt. A gun salute in the royal parks in London is expected to follow.

The new arrival is third in line to the throne, following the baby’s father, William, and (first-in-line) grandfather, Prince Charles, 64. The public will get its first glimpse of the child when the couple leave the hospital in the coming days.

Kate’s pregnancy was revealed on Dec. 3, 2012, when she was admitted to the hospital in London suffering from severe morning sickness.

William spoke of the couple’s desire to have children when they announced their engagement in 2010. He told ITN they would get to planning after their wedding: “Obviously we want a family, so we’ll have to start thinking about that.” And he has since said that he wants two kids.

Ali Landry Welcomes Son Valentin Francesco


Ali Landry‘s littlest guy is here!

The former model and actress, 39, and her husband, director Alejandro Monteverde welcomed their third child – and second son – on Thursday, July 11, PEOPLE confirms.

Valentin Francesco Monteverde was born in Los Angeles and weighed in at 9 lbs. The newborn shares a birthday with big sister Estela Ines, who turned 6.

After announcing she was pregnant with a baby boy in March, Landry told PEOPLE in June that her newest son’s middle name was inspired by a meeting with the Pope she and her husband had earlier this year during a trip to Rome.

“We got to meet the Pope and he blessed this baby. So part of the name might have something to do with our new Pope,” she says. “The other part of the name we came up with on our own.”

Landry also admitted in July that the couple’s children Marcelo Alejandro, 21 months, and Estela, were wary of their unborn brother.

“[Marcelo] wants to be with me all the time and he’s very much still a baby,” Landry told The Bump.

As for her firstborn, she’s aware “double trouble” is on the way, joked the mom-of-three.

“We were at the doctor’s office and the doctor said, ‘How do you like your little brother?’ And she said, ‘He pulls my hair,'” Landry said. “Then the doctor asked, ‘So what do you think about having a new brother?’ And she’s like, ‘I’m going to be bald.'”

Let the daddy duties begin – Alec Baldwin‘s baby girl is here!

The actor, 55, and wife Hilaria, 29, welcomed daughter Carmen Gabriela Baldwin on Friday, Aug. 23, Hilaria Tweeted.

“We are overjoyed to announce the birth of our daughter. She is absolutely perfect,” the new mom writes.

Already dad to daughter Ireland, 17, Alec and the EXTRA special correspondent announced in February they were expecting their first child together.

As the mom-to-be adjusted to pregnancy – which included satisfying her citrus cravings – the former 30 Rock star admitted he was looking forward to being a stay-at-home father.

“My dream is to be home with the baby, standing in the doorway, saying goodbye to Mommy,” he said. “‘Mommy is going to work now. Bye Mommy … don’t work too hard!'”

Hilaria, however, had her doubts about Alec’s determination – especially during the early morning hours.

“At this point, before the baby is born, he thinks he’s going to be Mr. Mom,” the expectant yoga instructor explained. “We’ll see if at 3 o’clock in the morning when the baby is screaming and we need to change the diaper if he’s going to be Mr. Mom at that point.”
