It’s a girl for Erica Cerra!

The Eureka star, 32, and husband Raffaele Fiore welcomed daughter Talia Serafina Fiore on Monday, May 14 at at 9:54 p.m., her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Baby girl weighed in at 5 lbs., 12 oz and is 20 inches long.

“We have been blessed with the most perfect little ‘peanut’ — her nickname from my father, since she is so small!” Cerra tells PEOPLE.

“I thought I was in love with her when she was in my belly, but I am so much more in love now that she is actually here, in my arms. I can’t stop staring at her, she is so beautiful and happy. We couldn’t have asked for anything more!”

The actress, who has also appeared on The L Word, married her high school sweetheart in November 2010. The couple reside in Vancouver.

Have thought Erica Cerra was absolutely stunning since we first started watching Eureka. Happy for actress and family and hope that someone has the good sense to offer her a great new acting gig. Love the rest of the cast, too, and will miss the show and other actors. It’s been a treat. Very sad to see it go. 😦

Congratulations! Love Erica’s work as Jo, and she is so gorgeous, and it is sweet she married her HS sweetheart.

Love, love, LOVE, Lupo!! So excited she had the baby and everything is fine. Talia Serafina seems like a great name for their baby, and isn’t it fantastic she married her high school sweetheart?! So sweet. I’m married (many years) to someone I went to high school with, and I think we’ve made it through so much because we have such a strong history together as friends, then got married after college. Love their story, and will so miss seeing her in Eureka. Have fun with your baby girl, Erica! Can’t wait to see her pictures……..

What an absolutely beautiful name! Many congratulations to the happy little family 🙂 I’m going to miss the begeezus out of her as “Lupo” on Eureka, but I’m somehow certain she’s going to love her new roll as Mom a little more.

Beautiful name! Congrats!

I am drawing a blank on what I know here from, but it isn’t what show is mentioned. She is great and beautiful! I really like their choice of the babies name! Congrats!

Awww, congrats to them! And Talia is a nice, unique name. I’ve only ever known one woman with that name, only she spells it Thalia.

Congratulations to Erica and her husband on their new baby. I love the name they picked for their daughter.

Erica is great as Jo Lupo on Eureka. Too bad the show is going off the air. It’s one of the best shows on TV.

Talia on

I love the name too, but maybe I’m partial… 😉

Love the show too! Are you sure it will be cancelled? I hope not. It is a fun show and love everyone on it. Also saw her on the “White Collar Show” once. Maybe that’s where you saw her.
