“After what felt like a year-long third trimester… it finally happened!! Matt and I are SOOO happy to announce the birth of our sweet baby BOY, Lucas, otherwise known as my little lion (shoutout to Leo’s!),” she wrote in the caption of a pic of herself holding Lucas in her hospital bed.
The former “True Blood” star told sources that she and Matthew had lots of time to prepare for the family’s new member. “Our family has been isolating since March (amid the coronavirus pandemic), which has come with its own challenges, but the upside is that it gave us a lot of time to be able to prepare,” she said.
She added, “Once I hit 37 weeks, I was willing him to come. Our bubble feels complete now that he’s here.”
The ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star since 2012, said she’d even gotten sick on the set of the drama. “Oh the glamor of growing new humans,” she wrote.
“But in all seriousness,” she added, “We feel so lucky and I can’t wait to bring you guys along for the remaining months of this baby #2 journey!!”
