Maybe her guest spot on Girls was a hint—that she didn't even know she was giving. 

Actress Shiri Appleby and restaurateur fiancé Jon Shook—both of whom agreed to wait until the baby was born to find out the sex—welcomed a daughter on Saturday, the actress's rep confirmed to E! News.

"Natalie Bouader Shook came into this world Saturday, March 23, at 5 p.m. sharp, weighing in at 6 pounds 12 ounces, length 20.5 inches, with big brown eyes and a full head of hair," the couple said. "She's already made her parents proud."

Us Weekly first reported Appleby's baby news.

The actress announced her pregnancy in late December, shortly after revealing her engagement to Shook. The chef and restaurant owner popped the question while they were vacationing in Ventotene, Italy, in July.

"One second you're having lunch, the next you have a ring on your finger!" Appleby said.

And now, they have a baby. Congratulations to the new parents!
