Now it’s “brother and sisters” for the kids of actress Rachel Griffiths and husband Andrew Taylor.

A rep for the Australian television and film actress — and star of the ABC show Brothers and Sisters — confirms exclusively to PEOPLE that a new daughter has been added to the mix that already includes daughter Adelaide Rose, 4 this week, and son Banjo Patrick, 5 ½.

A name, birthdate and details were not released. Rachel and Andrew announced the pregnancy in January, sharing that they’d be awaiting a delivery surprise. Rachel had been due in early July.

Congrats and I can’t wait to hear the details! I love her on B and S, and she’s a great mom I bet!!!

Oh, I’m so happy for them! I’m with the other posters, I can’t wait to hear the baby’s name🙂 I love both Adelaide’s and Banjo’s names!

Michelle on

Congrats to them! Like the other posters, I can’t wait to hear the name. Adelaide Rose is such a pretty, old fashioned sounding name – I wonder if the new baby’s name will also be old fashioned.

Lilybett on

Was she born in AUS or the US? It’ll be interesting to see if they name her America as Rachel mentioned a few months ago.

Congrats to the new family of five! I hope everything was excellent during delivery and little Baby Girl wasn’t too terribly early (also I hope Rachel had her bag packed and the car seat installed! haha)

I absolutely adore Adelaide’s name, and Banjo, while not so much my style, is beautiful. I can’t wait to hear what they’ve chosen for their new baby. Once again, Congrats!

I love the fact she honours Australia through the names of her children. I can’t wait to hear this one.

Paige on

Great news. Love, love, LOVE Rachel on “Brothers and Sisters”. Can’t wait to hear what this little one’s name is.

judew on

WONDERFUL! Congratulations! Am curious about name just as everybody else here!

She can then be ready to film season 4 of Brothers & Sisters! He he he.. Good timing!

Annie.M on

Perhaps “Sydney” would be an appropriate name to go with Adelaide? But that would be a little weird! Besides Rachel has mentioned her little one might have an American themed name. Either way it will be unique I’m sure!

HeatherR on

Let’s hear the name already!!!

Shannon on

I LOVE her on B&S! So happy to hear of another healthy baby! Can’t wait to hear this little girls name, I love what she chose for her first 2.

Holly on

Love the name Adelaide- just like the pregnant teen in 90210.

j.U.d.E. on

She should call her daughter Ojai! Lol!

Sarah M. on

I’m curious if she stuck with the name ‘America.’ She said a few times that, not only does she want a more American name now, but that she like the name America specifically.

Liv on

I loved her on six feet under! Congrats to her on a new baby!

Magickster on

Just not America (please). How about Matilda, Kimberley, Victoria (she was born here).

j.U.d.E. on

Clementine Grace.. Hm..

Marilyn on

I heard her name is Clementine.
