It’s a boy for Melissa George.

The Good Wife star, 37, welcomed son Raphaël Blanc on Thursday evening, Feb. 6, she announced via Twitter.

“Welcome to the world! Our beautiful son just born at the American hospital of Paris,” she writes. “There are no words to describe the love.”

The Australian actress and boyfriend Jean-David Blanc had shared their happy news in August.

“Baby on the way! So so happy,” George — who is also known for her roles on Alias and Grey’s Anatomy — said at the time.

Raphael means ‘God has healed’. It’s a beautiful Biblical name. Congratulations to Melissa and her boyfriend.

I am regular watcher of Grey’s but I cannot place her..who does she play? Or was it just a guest appearance?

^ She played Sadie Harris a few years back. She was the intern who was friendly with Meredith and Lexie … she cut her shoulder and had the other interns sew it back up, then she had the appendix surgery that went wrong. Does that jog your memory?
