Courtney Hansen is ready to start her engines — in motherhood!

The Power Nation host and her boyfriend, RumbaTime owner Jay Hartington, welcomed a daughter on Saturday, July 5, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

After 25 hours of labor, Holland Marysia Walker Hartington was born at 6:19 a.m., weighing 5 lbs., 15 oz.

“Holland is healthy, precious and sure to love cars just like her mom!” her rep tells PEOPLE.

Hansen, who announced in March that she was expecting a baby girl, admits it didn’t take long for the couple to decide on their daughter’s name.

“Holland is one of our favorite places in the world and a name I have always loved. We felt it was unique and beautiful — and after meeting her, it’s perfect,” she tells PEOPLE.

“Marysia is Jay’s mom’s name, the Polish version of Marissa. And Walker is my mom and late Aunt Barbie’s maiden name.”

In addition to her hosting duties, which air on NBC Sports, CBS Sports and Spike TV, Hansen, 39, is also the author of The Garage Girl’s Guide to Everything You Need to Know About Your Car.

Congratulations! A very special name that obviously honors very special people!

Congrats on your new beloved (and fuzzy!) little person. Beautiful name with meaning, too. We, too gave our 2 children 3 name names because we wanted to honor both sides of the family while still giving them their *own* identity. My daughter’s name worked out well because it is Emerson Harper Carrington (then our last name) but Harper turned out to be really popular. Holland is lovely – easy to say, spell and unique. Perfect!
Best wishes

Congrats, but the names are really not beautiful for a girl. Except Marysia. I|d take away Holland and Walker

I really think such names like Holland work only in the US. I’m glad to not be american :)

Congratulations!

“Marysia” is not “Marissa” actually. It’s a diminutive from “Mary”.

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
