Life has imitated art for Jenna Fischer: The actress, whose character on The Office is pregnant, is now a mom herself.

Fischer, 37, and husband Lee Kirk welcomed son Weston Lee on Saturday, Sept. 24, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“Mom and baby are doing great,” the rep says.

Fischer, whose character Pam has a daughter and is expecting a son with TV husband Jim Halpert on the show, first revealed she was pregnant in May.

In July, she told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show she was having a boy.

During her pregnancy, she shared her cravings and admitted she was virtually sailing through the nine months.

“In the beginning, it was a lot of macaroni and cheese and Lucky Charms. Now it’s a lot of strawberries,” she said. “I’ve been really lucky. I’ve had a really easy pregnancy.”

The actress has spoken in the past of her excitement about having children, saying that after becoming an aunt, “I already wanted kids, but even more so now.”

Fischer and Kirk were engaged in 2009 while both were vacationing in Europe and got married in July 2010, with Survivor‘s Jeff Probst officiating the ceremony.

I love love love the name Weston! Congrats to her!

beth on

She missed a prime opportunity to name him James. Although that’s her ex-husband’s name, so I guess that would be a bit weird. Congrats to Jenna and Lee.

Tia on

Congrats! Love her on The Office! She is awesome! This makes baby boy #10 in a row for celeb birth announcements on the blog! Not a girl in sight! Must be something in the water!

Congratulations to Jenna and Lee! I love the baby’s name!

I actually had a weird feeling all weekend we’d be hearing news about Jenna and the baby soon, so I’m glad that turned out to be true! Yay!

I don’t think Jim and Pam are going to name their son Weston Lee, though, like Jenna named Cece after her niece. It doesn’t seem like the Halperts would choose.

Pamela on

Ah! So excited for her and her husband! Weston is a cute name! Not too crazy but still bucking the traditional names!

Allison on

AHHHHH!!! I LOVE that name. Weston has always been one of my favorite names. And I love The Office; it’s my favorite show. Congratulations Jenna and Lee on baby Weston!

Brooklyn on

Congratulations to them! I like the name.

Nancy on

I am so happy for them! They appear to be the ideal parents. Good luck to mamma, pappa and baby Weston!

bones_addict on

Tia, I agree with you. The baby announcements have been taken over by boys!! Someone needs a cute little baby girl

Tia on

I know! How hilarious is it with all these little boys being born in this short amount of time? So funny! I wonder who will break the cycle? haha

stacey on

LOVE this southern sounding name!

Sarah S. on

Jamie on

awww her face got fat too. Makes me feel better about my own puffy face. haha

kjc on

Great news!… But what I really want to know is How the heck Jeff Probst ended up officiating their wedding ceremony?!?

Sam & Freya's Mum on

Must be a US/North American thing, but not a fan of Weston, Colt, Cash, etc, list goes on…!

Like her on the office thouigh and happy for her she’s a new mum. Safe arrival main thing but not a fan. Flows ok though, just don’t like Weston, but she won’t care anyhow, lol. Does seem to be a run of boys; there were 3 in a row listed here when I logged on this morning, and of course Selma Blair’s Arthur, Emily Descanel’s Henry, January Jones’ Xander, Jewel’s Kase, Ana Ortiz’s new boy, etc, etc….Perhaps Beyonce and Jennifer Garner with mix it up with a little girl next year!!

Dear author, her life did not imitate art. They made her character pregnant because she, herself, was pregnant. Use some common sense next time. Thanks…

ecl on

Actually, I believe I read elsewhere that she found out she was pregnant while filming the episode where she gets pregnant on the office.

To Jamie:

Your comment “aw, her face got fat, too…” was incredibly insensitive. If you need other people to gain weight in order for you to feel better about yourself, then you have your own issues to deal with.

Sarah on

Jenna is one of my favorite people, she is the cutest actress ever. I just love her “chill” style, and her role as Pam on The Office is perfect. Even though I wish Jim and Pam were a real couple, Jenna and Lee are THE cutest couple ever… Love. Welcome, Weston!!

Stephany Robinson on

Yay! I’m so happy for Jenna & her husband. Finally, a famous person who picks an awesome name & doesn’t use their child to express their artistic nature. Looove the name Jenna & Lee. Congrats. Boys are awesome (I have two, along w/ two teenage daughters).

Stephany Robinson on

Sooo happy for Jenna & Lee. Finally a famous person who picks an amazing, traditional name like Weston! Too many celebs express their art through stupid names. Love the name tons. I also love how beautiful she looks in the above pic. Boys are awesome- got 2 myself (plus 2 teenage girls).

Denise on

I’m so excited! Jenna is one of my favorites and I have a son named Weston so obviously I think it’s a great name! Congrats to Jenna and Lee!

Reese on

Congratulations to Jenna and Lee!

KJC, apparently Jeff Probst is a good friend of Jenna’s. He’s an ordained minister so they must’ve asked him to officiate.

Jillian on

Eel,
Jenna said it was written into the show. She found out she was pregnant the day they were filming the PDA episode, which is where her character got pregnant.

This site should have known that…….http://tv.ign.com/articles/118/1182114p1.html

Beebee on

Annonymous, yes life DID imitate art like people said because they were referring to Pam’s first pregnancy on the show with her daughter Cece which happened frist not the pregnancy that is currently going on on the show. So, you are wrong and you need to get your facts straight and use common sense when you post.

Kat on

Easy first pregancy is just a bait to lure you into having a second one. LOL!

Pon on

Jenna Fisher and I have the same birth date and a son born on the same day, two years apart. March 7, 1974 and September 24!

Maggie on

Has anyone forgotten that the Beckham’s had a girl, Jessica Alba had a girl, and Pink had a girl? Yes there had been a boy trend, but looks like there are 3 girls in the mix as well. Just saying. I have 2 boys myself and I seemed to always be the one breaking the trend amongst our friends that all had girls around the same time.
