    We thought she looked ready to pop. Turns out, we were right.

    Jennifer Connelly and hubby Paul Bettany welcomed their second child together, a daughter, at their New York home last month, her rep confirmed to E! News. Yes, at their home.

    As it happens, Connelly had a scheduled home water birth, delivering her child in a birthing pool on May 31.

    So, the little tyke obviously won the genetic lottery. But what about the baby naming one? Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the world…

    Agnes Lark Bettany! Aww.

    "Everyone is healthy and doing well," Connelly's rep said in a statement. "The family is very excited."

    The stork delivery joins big brothers Stellan, 7, and Kai, Jennifer's 13-year-old son from a previous relationship, and is, obviously, the first daughter for either parent.

    Just a couple weeks before the birth, Bettany discussed his last-minute nerves about his family's newest addition.

    "I'm about to have another baby," he told Jimmy Fallon in May while promoting his new film, Priest. "Like, imminently."

    He wasn't wrong!

    "And we made this decision not to find out whether it's a boy or a girl and now I'm really nervous because I'm a really overprotective father and now I'm wondering what it's going to be like if I have a girl. I'm gonna be crazy."

    Crazy it is, then. Congrats, you two!
