It's a boy for Girls star Jemima Kirke!

The 27-year-old actress and husband Michael Mosberg welcomed their second child last week, a boy they've named Memphis, according to various reports.

Their son joins 2-year-old sister Rafaella Israel in the family brood.

Judging by this tweet from Girls creator Lena Dunham, Memphis (here's hoping there's a playdate with Reese Witherspoon's son Tennessee one day) may have popped into this world on Nov. 20:

"Yesterday was amazing. One of my friends had a baby, one got engaged and the doctor told me the bump on my tongue is nothing to worry about," Dunham wrote Nov. 21.

Ironically, the storyline for Kirke's character, Jessa, on the HBO comedy's inaugural season revolved around a pregnancy that wasn't to be. But Kirke made no bones about what was going on with her in real life, posing for a spread in Vice in the full bloom of pregnancy.

"If I have a boy, I'll probably just tell him to be nice to women," she told the magazine. "Being humble and sweet is the hardest thing you can do."

The second season of Girls premieres Jan. 13.
