It’s a girl for Jessica Capshaw and husband Christopher Gavigan!

The couple are now the proud parents of daughter Eve Augusta, born Wednesday, Oct. 20.

“The family is thrilled to welcome their newest addition,” her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The Grey’s Anatomy star, 33 — the daughter of actress Kate Capshaw and stepdaughter of Steven Spielberg — already has a son, 3-year-old Luke, with her husband Gavigan, the CEO of non-profit Healthy Child, Healthy World.

Congratulations to them! I love the name.

And I had a feeling they’d be having a girl.

Congrats Jessica! There is something to be said about the Grey’s Anatomy cast having little girls with the past year or so: Ellen had Stella,Chyler had Aniston,Katherine has Naleigh,Eric has Billie, and now Jessica has Eve.Yay for girl power!

Talk about a baby girl boom on that set.

Demetria on

Congrats! Love the name Eve just not the name Augusta with it.

Romy on

kind of a mouthful when the whole name is said together, but it doesn’t really matter. I like that Luke and Eve are nice and ‘normal’ names that everyone can recognize and pronounce.

i love her name!

Liv on

Awww I LOVE this name. Pretty and normal, yet a little bit different. Sounds really nice with Gavigan too.

And I didn’t know Steven Spielberg was her stepdad!

What is Luke’s middle name?

Congrats and I love the name. I do want to name or at least have as a middle name Eve to my future daughter

Deirdre on

I love the name! Congratulations to the happy family!

I know that we’ve seen this picture of the couple before, but I just have to say it – what a gorgeous picture! So sweet.

Harper on

Anybody else feel like the name should be EVA Augusta? Eve Augusta doesn’t roll off the tongue quite as well. Anyway I assume Augusta is a middle name in which case she’ll only ever be Eve Gavigan or Eve Augusta Gavigan.

Congratulations to them both! I really like the name!

Harper – Eva Augusta is the more awkward-sounding one. The As run together. Don’t know why more parents don’t think of this when I see a name like “Kara Elizabeth” for example. Take vowels into account!

Congratulations to Jessica and Christopher. My neighbor named her daughter Eve as well …. must be becoming a popular name :). Does anyone know where I can find a picture of their 3 year old son Luke?

A lovely name for what I’m sure is a lovely little girl.

Ana on

Congrats to Jessica and her family! Luke is a very cute little boy. I’m sure his sister is as lovely as her mother. Hope we can see a picture of her!
Luke & Eve – I like the names! Very normal. They seem like a very down to earth family!

Lau on

Congrats to Jessica and her family! Luke is a very cute little boy. I’m sure his sister is as lovely as her mother. Hope we can see a picture of her!
Luke & Eve – I like the names! Very normal. They seem like a very down to earth family!

Teri on

Didn’t even know she was pregnant & I am an avid Grey’s watcher!! Good thing for scrubs – LOL. Congrats to them – I adore her on the show. Guess this makes sense as to why Callie & Arizona are heading to Africa for awhile.

Sam & Freya's mum on

Love both their names, esp Eve – nice and normal!
