Joseph Fiennes Welcomes a Daughter

03/10/2010 at 08:35 PM ET

Joseph Fiennes and his wife, Swiss model Maria Dolores Dieguez, welcomed their first child — a daughter — on Monday, Mar. 8th, his rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Joseph, the brother of Ralph and the star of Shakespeare in Love and ABC’s FlashForward, married the former Miss Switzerland contestant last summer in Tuscany.

They announced the pregnancy last fall, saying they were “utterly thrilled.”

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
