Lake Bell‘s latest role is priceless: motherhood!

The Million Dollar Arm actress has welcomed her first child, a daughter, with husband Scott Campbell, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

No other details, including a birth date or baby girl’s name, are available.

Before her rep confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple were expecting a baby, Bell, 35, let her belly do all the talking when she stepped out for an event in April.

After months of keeping her news under wraps, Bell was more than ready to embrace her bump.

“I think you start to get overwhelmed. You can overthink it. I was just sick and tired of hiding it,” the mom-to-be told PEOPLE in May.

And going public with her pregnancy paid off. “Finally [I] can wear the dresses you can eat anything in,” she said. “You don’t have to pose for a photo and suck in.”

She should name her Pond.

If celebs want to be treated like everyone else, then act like everyone else. We didn’t keep it a secret when we had our baby, didn’t hide the bay’s sex, name, or anything else about the whole thing. So silly, everyone melts down and acts as if it’s such a big deal and they had the only important child in the world. I’d rather see them sell the pics, tell us the name, and all the rest, just because then we move on and no one is freaking out about anything. Make big deal about no name, no pics, no nothing, and everyone wants to know. It’s not protection, it’s asking for more attention. Just sayin’

Either that is one unflattering picture of Daddy – or I hope she gets her Mom’s nose!

Wow! Let’s hope baby looks like Mommy…and doesn’t have some F-ed up name like Dasher or Majesta or Poodles.

courtney- I hope it’s not the latter. Because of it is, I’m sure TMZ will take that right away from them by obtaining a copy of her birth certificate.😦

Anyway, congrats to them!
