Just four months earlier, the actress revealed she was expecting her first child in a photo of herself mountainside embracing the outline of her already growing belly. 

"It's with two feet firmly on the ground and a heart swelling in an ocean of love that I'd like to share the new shape I am becoming to hold the greatest dream of them all #babybump #newparents," she declared on social media at the time. 

DeLorenzo marked the special occasion by quoting an excerpt on children from Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet. "You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday."

Cheers to all the days ahead for this brand new family of three!
