Meet Ella Betsi Janet! Proud parents Ioan Gruffudd and Alice Evans wave from the doorway of their Los Angeles home as they give us a peek at their 5-week-old baby girl.

Born on September 6th and weighing in at 6 lbs., 3 oz, Ella is “very small and unbelievably beautiful,” Alice told Hello last month. “[She] hasn’t got much hair yet.”

Ella, whose second middle name is in honor of her late grandmother, is the first child for the actors.

What a little peanut! She’s adorable.

Yay for “Janet”… I’m partial, lol.

I just love that her mother described her as “unbelievably beautiful”.

That is one hot papa…

Jenna Lynn on

Cutest. Baby girl. EVER. :)
And while I am not super partial to any of her names individually, love them together!

Mina on

Does anyone else notice Ella is waving too? SO CUTE!!

Brandi on

CUTE!!!!! I really love when celebs release their own photo or just do a casual shoot like this, makes them seem down to earth.

noa on

aaaawww, she’s tiny…

I love that her second middle name is Janet! That’s exactly what I plan on doing for my firstborn daughter. It’s my mom’s name. My brother’s middle name is our grandfather’s first name and so my brother plans to continue that by giving our father’s name to his son as a middle name. My mother has always felt her name was too difficult to do that but I’m going to surprise her and do it anyway.

A beaut!

Janet on

Love it!! Not too often I hear new parents naming their child Janet. It’s a great, classic, strong name! : ) I’m biased of course! hehe

Diva on

Lovin’ all the love there is for “Janet”… it’s served me well for 36 years!

Cute little bambina tucked in her daddy Ioan’s big, loving arms? I love it, so I’ll just sort of edge out his wife and take both of them! Works for me, lol. :D

S on

That is one good looking family…and that baby has a beautiful name:)

Chloe on

What a great way to introduce their beautiful little girl – on their own terms, safe and without making money! Well done Ioan and Alice, congrats on your gorgeous little girl.

pelin on

so tiny and so cute!love her name

Kelli on

Too cute. Makes me think of when my son was a newborn. But he was way bigger than that!!

Lisa on

Chloe, I agree. I love that Ioan and Alice introduce the baby on their terms. No super million deals, no hiding the baby. Here she is, you can see her. Ella is gorgerous and I do love that name. When my daughter was 1 and going to little gym, another girl in the class was named Ella and I loved it back then as well. Loan, Alice and Ella are a gorgerous Family.

Shipmate on

Congrats to Ioan & Alice — you did a beautiful job with little Ella-Betsi! Best of Luck!

It seems like they couldn’t decide which one they liked more so they just gave her all the name. They don’t roll easily off the tongue as a full name, they are more first names than first and second middle names. Was she named after Grandparents? Maybe they didn’t want to upset Grandparents?

CelebBabyLover on

Lisa- Techincally, aren’t celebs who “hide the baby” for awhile and then finally let him/her be seen releasing photos of their baby on their terms, too?

CelebBabyLover on

ericka- It says right in the post that “Janet” is after one of her grandmothers. “Betsi” sounds like it might be after a grandmother, too. :)

Simply Bohemian on

Awww, I want one!
