Case closed: It’s a girl!

NCIS: Los Angeles star Daniela Ruah and David Olsen welcomed their second child, daughter Sierra Esther Ruah Olsen, on Sunday, Sept. 4, she announced Wednesday on Instagram.

“Apparently she thought Labor Day weekend meant LABOR day weekend… Look who showed up three weeks early! On Sept. 4th we welcomed little Miss Sierra Esther Ruah Olsen,” the actress captioned a family photo.

“She entered the world in her own way — breeched! I was a good candidate to deliver her naturally so I needed to find a doctor in L.A. who would know how to do it. Fortunately I found one of the few… Healthy & happy mommy & baby walked out of the hospital 24hrs later. I had an OB and doula assisted birth at Cedars-Sinai, and the #love and #support of my wonderful #hubby This photo is the perfect representation of everything I’ve ever wanted.”

Sierra weighed in at 7 lbs. and measures 20.8 inches long, her rep tells PEOPLE.

Ruah — who broke her pregnancy news on the social media app in April — and Olsen also share son River Isaac, 2½.

Daniela Ruah on Getting Pregnant After a Miscarriage: ‘Nature Is a Beautiful Thing’

Daniela Ruah has seen heartache recently, in the form of a miscarriage she experienced in October when she was nine weeks pregnant.

“Something like that hits you physically, emotionally and psychologically, but my doctor said, ‘Even if you sat on my table the whole time, this still would’ve happened. You have to try again,’ ” recalls the actress, 32, in her September 2016 cover story for Fit Pregnancy and Baby.

“So that’s what we did, and I got pregnant on our second try,” continues Ruah, who is already mom to 2½-year-old son River Isaac with husband David Olsen — the latter of whom is the older brother of Ruah’s NCIS: Los Angeles costar Eric Christian Olsen.

“Nature is a beautiful thing — it does what it needs to do when it needs to do it,” adds the expectant mom, who is due with the couple’s second child, a daughter, this fall.
