She posted a black and white video of her and her man, Matt Alan, holding their tiny daughter. And, just to make fans even happier, the star even shared the child’s name. “We have a new great love in our lives… our sweet baby girl…Hayden,” read the caption. To celebrate the event, Luddington was sporting a new gold chain bracelet featuring the letter “H.” Fans were delighted with the happy news and posts of encouragement and congratulations poured in.

The excited new mom had earlier told reporters that the name would come to them when seeing their baby girl for the first time. “I think when we see the baby, we’ll just know,” she said back in December. The pregnancy was also announced on Instagram in October. “I am so excited to finally share with you all news that I’ve managed to keep secret for what seems like forever now…I am pregnant!” the post read. “We are beyond happy and I cannot wait to bring you all on this journey with me.”

The ABC star kindly shared the baby’s sex with fans back in February. “I am so excited to announce today that I am having a… girl!” she wrote with a photo of herself holding a tiny onesie bearing the words, “Tomb Raider in Training”. “I want her to grow up knowing how strong women are. To be a little warrior who is not afraid to use her voice and stand up for what she believes is right. To navigate through life with courage and kindness, and to be one of the girls who says ‘you CAN sit with us…'”

As Luddington, who plays Jo Wilson on ABC’s long-running medical drama, finds her feet as a new mother, she has numerous co-stars to compare notes with. “I hear stories from all the moms on set,” she told E! News at the 2017 People’s Choice Awards. “So to have that experience myself, and all the joys and the highs and the lows, I’m excited for all of it.”
