Agnes Bruckner is a mom!

The Returned star welcomed her first child, a baby boy, with boyfriend Alefaio Brewer on Wednesday, March 30, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Son Sebastian Lopeti Brewer was born at 1:15 p.m., weighing 8 lbs. 15 oz. He measured 21.5 inches long.

“We’re so excited to welcome our lion cub into this world,” the couple tell PEOPLE. “He’s truly a blessing and we couldn’t be more happy and proud!”

Sharing a photo of herself with her son Friday evening, Bruckner added, “I’ve never known a love like this. He’s pure magic. Thank you for all the love. We feel all of it.”

The birth of her son is a moment Bruckner, 30, has long been waiting for. “From a young age, I dreamed about being a mom,” she told PEOPLE while announcing the pregnancy in October.

“Now it’s finally happening for real and I couldn’t be more excited.”

My prince. My love. I will always be your #Warrior I love you. #MochaViking 👑

Shortly before welcoming her baby boy, the actress posted a fresh-faced selfie of herself cradling her belly, with the caption, “Still very preggo. Whenever [you’re] ready my prince! Lol my hips don’t lie and they in pain.”

Days later, Bruckner shared another belly shot, captioning it, “My prince, my main man, my love. Can you please come out soon? I can’t wait to smother you with kisses hugs and love already. Momma & Dada are ready!”

Wow, I’ve never been pregnant, her belly is so big!!! The rest of her looks so slim, looks like she really took care of herself during her pregnancy. Best wishes!!

Wow things are so different than when I had a baby 9 years ago. Women take so many pics of themselves. I had pics from my baby shower and then when I went into labor my husband took a pic of me before we left for the hospital.
