After playing pregnant plane crash victim and new mom Claire Littleton for seven seasons on the ABC hit show Lost, Emilie de Ravin is finally a proud parent for real!

The Aussie actress—who now plays Belle (of Beauty & the Beast fame) on ABC's popular fairy tale series Once Upon a Time—and her boyfriend, director and writer Eric Bilitch—welcomed their first child over the weekend. It's a girl!

De Ravin announced the news via Twitter. "Welcome to the big wide world! Vera Audrey de Ravin-Bilitch born March 12th 2016," she wrote. "Couldn't be happier! So in love with our little girl!"

Bilitch then jumped in on the Twitter action, adding: "Madly in love with our gorgeous girl. And her momma is the most wonderful woman on earth! Could not be happier!"

Awww! So sweet!

The couple—who publicly confirmed their relationship after they were spotted walking the streets of Paris together back in 2014—also took to Twitter to announce the pregnancy back in the fall. "I wanted to share some exciting news," de Ravin wrote. "Me & @ericbilitch are expecting a baby!! 'Tis truly a dream come true and we could not be happier."

Then Bilitch tweeted back: "Indeed! We are over the moon with joy! Could not be more excited to be starting a family with @emiliederavin."

How cute are these two?! Sounds like, after years of playing a princess on TV, de Ravin has found her very own fairy tale ending!

Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
