56223729046_lamission_1 Actress Melissa Joan Hart, 29, and her husband Mark Wilkerson, 28, welcomed their first child and son at 4:19 pm on Wednesday evening. Mason Walter Wilkerson, who was a few days overdue, weighed in at 9 lb. Said Melissa of the birth, "He was a little stubborn [coming out], but all is well…Everyone is well and we are all relieved."

Melissa said in November that, "Everyone tells me I won’t make it to January" – she did and was even overdue (Mason was due on the 8th). Melissa and Mark have been together for four years and married for nearly three.
