E! News can confirm the 38-year-old actress and husband Hayes MacArthur welcomed a healthy and happy baby last Thursday.
“It’s a girl! We couldn’t be more excited to share news of the arrival of Vivienne Margaret MacArthur on Thursday January 15th 2015,” Larter shared on her website Monday night. “She came bearing gifts for her brother: Batman sheets and lots of Gummy Bears!!! 7.5 lbs of love.”
This marks the second child for the couple who are already proud parents to their four-year-old son, Theodore Hayes.
During her second pregnancy, the Heroes and Legends alumna decided to switch things up a bit by keeping the baby’s gender a secret until the very end.
“I don’t think we’re going to [find out],” she told E! News at a recent Pampers event in New York City. “Last time, we knew we were having a boy but this time, it’s fun having this little surprise in here.”
Instead, the actress tried her absolute best to rest and relax, while also enjoying a few pregnancy cravings along the way.
“I can’t deny myself,” she admitted to E! News. “I convince myself the baby is desperate for that lobster roll or those onion rings. I’m in the northwest right now so it’s all about fried clams and lobster rolls.” That’s a darn lucky baby!
But when not savoring a few tasty treats or vacationing by the beach, the proud mom admitted that expecting a baby the second time around isn’t exactly easier.
“I’m working and running around…things don’t really slow down, so it’s a little bit less charming,” she shared with People. “That being said, I feel like so blessed and lucky to be having our baby.” Awww!
Congratulations to the couple on their happy news!
