Malin Akerman is rockin’ a new role: motherhood!

The Rock of Ages actress, 34, and her husband Roberto Zincone welcomed a son on Tuesday, April 16, PEOPLE confirms.

“My husband and I welcomed our beautiful, healthy baby boy to this world this morning! Biggest joy of my life!!! #lovemykid” the actress announced via Twitter. “PS and his name is … Sebastian Zincone. Love him more than life itself!! #whatafeeling !!!”

Beautiful name! I love when people get married young, are still together after ten years and then have children. (though I have nothing against any other model)

And THAT is how a celebrity should announce a birth. I’m sick of the anticipation they build up because they’re full of themselves. No formal announcement from a rep, no expensive magazine pictures, just a good down to earth tweet.

Congrats!! I loved Malin Akerman ever since I saw her in Twice In A Lifetime!! (And it doesn’t hurt that she is Canadian!!)

Love the name Sebastian (It was on my list of boy names but hubby vetoed it 😦 )

Can’t wait to see pictures of him, with his parents there is no way he is anything but a total doll!!

Just Me- Celebs generally do the magazine photoshoots a few weeks or months AFTER they announce the birth, so you might want to hold off on that part of your praise for a bit. 😉

Also, for some celebs, it’s a choice between having the paps hunt you down relentlessly for their baby’s picture and possibly injure someone in the process, or doing a controlled photoshoot to lessen the interest and thus make it safer to venture out with baby!

Love her, love the name, Love the way she handled the pregnancy (very low key), love the fact that she married and has been with her child’s father for 10 years. Congrats to them.
