A.J. Buckley is a proud dad!

The Justified star and his fiancée Abigail Ochse became first-time parents and welcomed a healthy baby girl on Sunday, Jan. 19.

"Greatest moment in my life happened at 136am this morning when my fiancé gave birth to our little angel Willow Phoenix Buckley #ProudDad," the 35-year-old actor tweeted shortly after the birth.

Weighing in at 7 lbs., 5 oz, "both baby, mother and father are doing well," Buckley's rep confirmed to E! News.

After dating for two years, the former CSI: NY star proposed to the oncology nurse on New Years Eve 2012 in front of friends and family while on vacation in Turtle Bay, Napali.

According to a statement obtained by E! News at the time of the engagement, Turtle Bay is a special place for Buckley and his family. It is the resting place for the ashes of his late father Joe Buckley, who he lost to pancreatic cancer last year. Buckley's mother and Ochse's sister were present while he got on bended knee and popped the question with a vintage style ring he hid in a box of fireworks. The ring was made by Dan Wexler in Houston.

Congrats to the new family!
