Jenny Slate and Ben Shattuck are parents!

The 38-year-old actress told ET on Wednesday (February 3) that she has given birth to her first child, a baby girl named Ida Lupine.

Jenny explained that she and her fiance chose Ida because they “loved the name” and added Lupine as a reference to one of their favorite flowers.

She also told ET that she has been loving motherhood so far, especially because Ida is a “good sleeper.”

“Motherhood is the most meaningful thing that has ever happened to me,” Jenny said. “I feel really lucky.”

The comedian revealed she was expecting in December during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers. She told Seth that it’s “very nice to have something that is incredibly positive during a time that’s hard and sad…it’s nice to have, like, a little secret treasure.”
