KayCee Stroh has graduated to motherhood.

The High School Muscial star welcomed daughter Zetta Lee yesterday in Salt Lake City, her first child with husband Ben Higginson, E! News confirms.

And the baby girl's arrival came not a moment too soon, either.

"She made a dramatic entry into this world being almost two weeks overdue," Stroh said in a statement obtained by E! News.

"But all is well, and we feel overly blessed to finally have our happy healthy baby girl! I feel I have been afforded the opportunity to do many incredible things in my lifetime, but by far this is the best."

The now 28-year-old actress played brainiac and secret pop-lock-jam-and-break aficionado Martha Cox in the super-successful High School Musical trilogy. She and Higginson tied the knot on Jan. 9, 2009.

And the couple had their daughter's name picked out well in advance of her birth, with Stroh tweeting Tuesday: "Ahh! Just got my package from @SNAZZITS1 Soooo cute!!! Thank you so much!! Can't wait to see baby Zetta in it!! XoXo."

At her baby shower, she told In Touch Weekly (which first reported Zetta's arrival) that she had always "loved Z names and double Ts. I've always thought they were so beautiful."
