Ioan Gruffudd and Alice Evans are first-time parents after welcoming a girl! Daughter Ella Betsi Janet Gruffudd arrived at 2:16 a.m. on Sunday, September 6th after 40 hours of labor. She weighed in at 6 lbs., 3 oz and was 21 inches long.
“Ella is very small and unbelievably beautiful,” the new mom tells Hello. “[She] hasn’t got much hair yet.” Alice adds that Ella’s second middle name, Janet, is in honor of her mother, who passed away 10 years ago.
The couple, who met while filming 2002’s 102 Dalmatians and wed in fall 2007, announced the pregnancy in April.
Ioan, 35, and Lost actress Alice, 38, knew the sex of the baby prior to delivery, but kept it private.
Of impending parenthood, the Fantastic Four star said,
“I’m sure we have no idea what we are heading into. But we both love each other so much and really hope that we will create an environment of love and happiness.”
