Here's some mighty good news from Mira Sorvino's camp!

The Oscar winner and husband Christopher Backus welcomed their fourth child together yesterday in Los Angeles.

"We are thrilled beyond measure to have been blessed with our fourth precious, healthy child," the couple said in a statement to E! News.

So, what did they name their new addition?

Little Lucia joins older sister Mattea, 7, and brothers Johnny, 5, and Holden, 2, in their increasingly crowded-yet-happy home.

Sorvino, 44, and Backus, 30, tied the knot in June 2004, the first marriage for both. Following Holden's birth in 2009, Sorvino revealed that she spent months of her pregnancy on bed rest after developing placenta praevia, and then a blood clot landed her in the hospital for another two and a half weeks before she finally delivered.

Luckily, Holden weighed a sturdy 8 pounds, 12 ounces and came out "perfectly healthy."

A very hearty congratulations to the whole family on the arrival of Lucia!
