A girl for Laura Dern?

12/03/2004 at 10:55 AM ET

Dbarn posted a comment that Laura Dern has given birth. I’m trying to confirm this. In the meantime, here’s what she commented in the November 2004 post.

Laura Dern just became a mom for the second time. The actress had a baby girl with her partner, musician Ben Harper, on Nov. 28, her publicist confirmed to PAGE SIX. The tot’s name is being kept under wraps for now. Harper and Dern, whose new dramedy "Happy Endings," co-starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Lisa Kudrow, opens the Sundance Film Festival next month, already have a son, Ellery Walker, born in 2001. Dern may not officially be married to Harper. She said they were engaged in August but her publicist declined to clarify.
