Congrats to My Big Fat Greek Wedding star Nia Vardalos and hubby Ian Gomez.

The happy couple are now the parents of a little girl, I can exclusively report. In an effort to maintain their privacy, the first-time mom and dad have decided only to reveal that their child—quietly adopted several months ago—is a toddler under five years old.

"They are going public now to bring attention to National Adoption Month and the 500,000 children in foster care," reads a statement released by Vardalos' rep. "Of these children, 129,000 are 'legally free' for adoption and waiting for a family."

The statement also urges folks who want to learn more to check out adoptuskids.org.

Vardalos will next be seen in two romantic comedies, including My Life in Ruins and I Hate Valentine's Day, which reunites her with her Greek Wedding costar John Corbett. She also directed the flick.
