Jamie-Lynn Sigler is officially a girl with a kid.

The former Guys with Kids and Sopranos star, 32, and her fiancé Cutter Dykstra welcomed their first child on Wednesday, Aug. 28, a source tells PEOPLE.

Son Beau Kyle Dykstra weighed in at 8 lbs., 4 oz.

“Thank you for all the love! Cutter and I feel so blessed and appreciative of everyone’s well wishes,” Sigler Tweeted Thursday. “So madly in love with our BOY!”

After announcing their engagement in January, the couple surprised fans with even more exciting news only two weeks later: they were expecting! While confirming they would welcome a son, Sigler admitted she was even shocked by the timing of it all.

“We definitely thought it was going to be a slow relationship process and possibly an engagement — I felt like it was coming — so the baby definitely threw us for a loop,” the actress said in April.

Despite denouncing heels for the remainder of her pregnancy, Sigler sported a pair for her June baby shower, where she told PEOPLE she and Dykstra, 24, were having trouble deciding on their son’s name.

“We have a couple of [baby] names we’re toying with. We’ll call him one name one week and one name another week. I think we have our favorite, but you never know. We could change our minds when we meet him,” she said at the time.

She’s 32, he’s 24. Sorry, it’s never going to work long term. Congrats on baby Beau all the same.

Sylvia on

Congratulations and that’s a lovely name. And thank God its a normal name too – like Beau Bridges (in case anyone forgets)

Kristen on

This always makes me laugh when celebrities say this….” the baby definitely threw us for a loop”. Um…you have sex without birth control, you’re probably going to get pregnant.

Love the name Beau. Congrats!

D on

Congratulations!

Mztmom on

Congrats! Here’s to hoping Cutter turns into a better person than his dad. Spent years cheering for Lenny and so disappointed he turned into such a loser.

Debs on

Cute name! Congrats!

Stella on

Love the name Beau!!

Kate on

Beau is such a cool name, not weird like Blue or North but not crazy popular like Noah, perfect spot to be for a name.

Gypsy on

Nice to see a “normal” name like Beau. Very cute indeed!

John on

Congrats to Jamie. And Cutter for stepping up to the plate…and the home run.

Jana on

congrats!

I’m not saying I disagree with the people who say they won’t last because of their age different (because in this case I agree), but it can happen. My best friend’s parents are 13 years difference. They met when he was 19 and she was 32. They’re now 75 and 62 and still happily married.

Kristin on

Come on! You didn’t name him Moxie Crimefighter or Pilot Inspektor or Apple or Pickle…oh, wait thats not one. Well, congrats to the couple…and their normal named child. Now he won’t hate you when he’s 20 entering the real world.

Lenny isn’t the baby’s father—he is the grandfather!!

ELC on

Congrats! Was hoping she would give James a middle name atleast. I guess that wasn’t in the cards.

krtmom on

I have to laugh when people say that their baby was a surprise! If your having sex and not using contraception then a baby is a definite possibility!

Courtney on

Congrats on the baby boy!!

I don’t think the age difference is a big deal. My aunt is 10yrs older then my uncle, and they have been happily married for years!!

CJ on

@Shopgirl

Why? Because they haven’t been together very long? Or because of their age difference? Because my friends have been happily married for over 10 years and they got together when HE was 21 and SHE was 33. They are 35 and 47 now.

lexyb9 on

what the he!! kind of name is Cutter?????
Idiot ‘celebs’ and their ridiculous kid’s names.

Rai on

Love the baby’s name!

Rai on

@ShopGirl — it CAN work. I met my hubby at age 28 and he was 21 and we are about to celebrate our 30th anniversary!

lexyb9- Cutter is the baby’s father’s name. The baby’s name is Beau. :)

Kristen and krtmom- And how do you know they weren’t using birth control? No method (except abstinence) is 100 percent effective, so unless they come right out and say they were careless with protection, we can’t possibly know whether they were taking precautions or not!

Anyway, congrats to them!

AD on

Pretty sure Noah isn’t a crazy popular name, Kate, try again.

Names4Real on

@AD

Actually, Noah is the 4th most popular name in the U.S. right now.

Caitie on

how do you know she had sex without birth control? condoms can break, pills can fail. i know plenty of people who have kids thanks to one or the other happening.

Rai, but it just won’t work! Shopgirl knows!
