We didn’t get to see as much of Morena Baccarin as we would have liked this season on Homeland, but the new mom more than made up for it with a fabulous return to the red carpet at Saturday’s SAG Awards.

Just three months after welcoming son Julius on Oct. 22, the actress showed off her stunning post-baby figure in a beautiful blue Monique Lhuillier gown paired with a Jimmy Choo “tube” clutch.

Joking that she “blew up” during her pregnancy, Baccarin also told E! News’s Guiliana Rancic that her son is “doing great, he’s smiling, which you really need. We’re not getting a lot of sleep around the house but that’s okay. He’s super cute!”

It’s a boy!

Actress Morena Baccarin and her husband Austin Chick welcomed their first child, a son, on Tuesday, Oct. 22, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Born in Glendale, Calif., Julius weighed in at just under eight pounds.

“Julius and his mother are happy and healthy,” the rep adds.

Despite being breech, the Homeland actress successfully delivered her baby boy naturally with the help of Dr. Ronald Wu at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. He is the only doctor in the Los Angeles area who offers expectant mothers the option to birth a breech baby in a hospital.

“I’m so happy I was able to deliver with Dr. Wu,” Baccarin, 34, tells PEOPLE. “Breech delivery is a dying art and he gave me the birth experience I wanted.”

She’s due with her first child any day now, but nothing will stop a very pregnant Morena Baccarin from attending Sunday’s Emmy Awards.

“I’m going to make it to the Emmys. It’s my first nomination. I will be there no matter what,” Baccarin told reporters at the Los Angeles Confidential Pre-Emmy Kick-Off Celebration Thursday night.

The Homeland actress, 34, admits that it was “perfect timing and a very huge surprise” when she found out that she was one of the nominees for the Outstanding Actress In A Drama Series category.

“We forgot what day it was and I woke up to all of these phone calls. My first reaction was somebody died, something horrible has happened,” she says. “But of course it was not that. It was really amazing.”

Another Homeland baby is on the way!

Actress Morena Baccarin, 33, and her husband director/writer Austin Chick are expecting their first child together, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Baccarin — who plays Jessica Brody, the wife of former marine Nicholas Brody on the hit Showtime series — is currently in production for the show’s third season.

Fortunately, the mom-to-be won’t have to worry about balancing a heavy makeup routine with a new baby. When Baccarin — who wed Chick, 41, in November 2011 — isn’t busy shooting scenes in front of the camera, she’s “pretty low maintenance.”
