Amanda Peet Welcomes Son Henry
John Shearer/Invision for the Television Academy

It’s a boy for Amanda Peet.

The actress, 42, and David Benioff, 44, welcomed their third child, son Henry Peet Friedman, on Sunday, Dec. 7, in Los Angeles, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The new addition joins big sisters Molly June, 4½, and Frances Pen, 7½, at home.

“[My daughters] are very excited now,” she told PEOPLE in October. “We’ll see what happens when he actually arrives!”

Peet and her husband announced the pregnancy at the Emmys this fall, where Game of Thrones co-creator Benioff was up for 19 awards.

That picture does not do them justice. It looks like he’s standing with his daughter and she’s dressed like a 12 yr old little girl. She should really try dressing like a lady/woman and not a child.

Blessings to their family!

John on

She’s so beautiful. He’s so brilliant. Best wishes to an extraordinary family.

Aimae- You really consider 12 years old to be “little”?! Anyway, congrats to them and I can’t wait to hear the name!

Elena on

Anonymous – Why are you always so bent on starting trouble?!

Congratulations to the family.

@Callie: she has always dressed like this, she has a very distinct look and style which has always done well for her. She’s super successful and talented. and you? lol thought so

Jessica on

I don’t know why but I look at these two and can’t help but feel like they’re perfect for each other. Just a good vibe between them to me.. Anyway, congrats to them both!

Congratulations on their little boy! Awesome.

NoDoubt! on

Congrats! I have always liked her plus I love his show. I’m sure their kids are great!

Seriously? on

LOL. You’re a moron, Callie. An absolute moron.

Victoria on

Not another weird celebrity baby name! Who names their child Henry? Couldn’t they choose a “normal” name like Airplane or Pineapple? LOL.

Pam on

Normal names. I like it.

Yvonne on

Callie, I couldn’t agree more. I looked at the picture and thought why does she look like a deer in the headlights and why is his arm wrapped around her like a dad would do a child? Crazy no one else sees it!

DaisyMoon on

LOL…
Good one, Victoria!

Dawn on

Victoria–hilarious! Can’t wait to see someone name their kid Airplane haha Wait, didn’t Nicholas Cage or someone come close? Like Jett haha
I think she’s such a lovely lady-something tells me she’s probably not altogether comfortable doing red-carpets and press, not for lack of confidence or beauty, but just for privacy respect. She’s kept her film choices cool, not too mainstream, maintains her private life and those of her kiddos and family, even though she’s married to another great in the business. Way to show how to do what you love, but keep your life private–it can be done🙂

What? They didn’t name him Tyrion? Ugh.

alex on

I don’t understand, they gave him a different last name ?

Henry is nice ….
I feel like in one of her movies she played opposite someone and she called him “Henry” a lot. I’ll have to look at imdb. I could have sworn.

Paula on

Love the name! Happy for them.

alex- I’m guessing that’s a second middle name, perhaps a family surname from way back or something.🙂
