Shanola Hampton is a mom again!

Daren O.C. Dukes was born on Monday, May 9 in Los Angeles, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively. “Doc” weighed in at 7 lbs., 6 oz., and measured 20 inches long and is named after his father, Daren Dukes, Hampton’s husband of 16 years.

“One and one, now we’re done!” the Shameless actress tells PEOPLE of the fact that she and Dukes are now parents to both a girl and a boy. (Daughter Cai MyAnna is 2.)

Hampton also took to Instagram on Thursday to share a photo of the newest member of her family.

“And then God gave me my son,” Hampton, 38, wrote alongside the sweet black-and-white shot, which depicts little Doc snuggled against his mom and the twosome looking completely at peace.

Hampton and Dukes confirmed they were expecting a son exclusively to PEOPLE in December. Their announcement came alongside a series of sweet photos showing their family getting ready to welcome little Doc into the world.

And then God gave me my son…

Blessed? You had sex – congratulations. Millions of women want a baby, get pregnant, have a baby. It’s not unique to a certain few. Even atheists have babies without fertility troubles, hard labor or problems breastfeeding, husbands who stray or being broke. “Blessed” would indicate that you were given something different, bestowed with a rarely-seen gift that very few, if any, had received. All babies are *special* because they’re babies but they’re all the same: little humans.
