'Studio 60' Star Gives Birth to Girl
It's the first child for the actress
The actress and her husband, screenwriter David Benioff, welcomed a baby girl on Tuesday, Feb. 20, reports People.
The girl is named Frances Pen and weighted 6 lbs., 10 oz. at birth. This is the first child for the couple.
"Amanda and her daughter are resting comfortably," Peet's rep says.
The couple got engaged last July and were married in September in New York with Mark Ruffalo and Elizabeth Berkley among the wedding guests.
Benioff, 36, is a screenwriter who wrote "25th Hour" and "Troy." He's apparently tapped to pen the script for "Wolverine," the upcoming "X-Men" spinoff.
Peet, 35, is mainly known for her film resume that includes "The Whole Nine Yards" and its sequel, "Saving Silverman," "Something's Gotta Give," "Melinda and Melinda," "A Lot Like Love" and the upcoming four-hankerchief weepie "Griffin and Phoenix" opposite Dermot Mulroney.
On TV, she appeared on "C.P.W.," "Seinfeld," "Spin City" and starred on "Jack & Jill."
