It’s a girl for Alana De La Garza!
The actress, 36, and husband Michael Roberts welcomed their second child on Sunday, July 7, she confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.
Daughter Liv Elena Roberts was born weighing 8 lbs., 8 oz. and measured 19 inches long.
“[The second I saw her] I was just overwhelmed with pure joy and love. I know it sounds clich , but that’s exactly how I felt,” De La Garza tells PEOPLE.
“It feels like our little family is complete. She’s been here a week and I just can’t imagine our lives without her.”
De La Garza and Roberts are also parents to 2 -year-old son Kieran Thomas, who has been busy reveling in his role as big brother.
“He was so excited and in awe! He kept kissing her forehead and saying ‘Baby sista’s not in Mama’s belly anymore!'” she says. “It was one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen and most proud I’ve ever been.”
In February, the former Law & Order star shared that she was expecting a daughter, later adding that her son was eager to meet his baby sister and had even developed a penchant for playing with his mama’s pregnant belly.
“[Kieran] crawled in our bed to cuddle. A minute later I feel his little fingers poking my belly button. I gently move them and tell him to rest,” De La Garza told Latina.
“Thirty seconds later, I feel him poking my belly again! I look over and say, ‘Honey, what are you doing?’ He looks up at me and whispers, ‘I’m playing with the baby!’ I melted.”

It certainly is a “Beautiful Day” – Michael Bubl is a dad!
The singer, 37, and his wife Luisana Lopilato, 26, welcomed son Noah via emergency c-section at 2:26 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27 in Vancouver, Bubl announced via Instagram, sharing a photo of his family.
“Overjoyed and filled with gratitude at the arrival of our son,” the new dad writes.
After announcing he and the Argentine actress were expecting their first child, the dad-to-be couldn’t contain his excitement over pending parenthood.
“I had just found out [we were expecting]. It was the greatest day of my life, so I just said, ‘You know, I’m having a baby!'” Bubl shared when explaining why he first broke the baby news to Reese Witherspoon.
In March, the couple discovered they would welcome a son. “We have just come from the hospital and the sonogram was pretty clear – it’s a boy! We are thrilled,” Bubl said at the time.
Finding out the sex of their baby boy coincided with the selection of the new pope, who happened to be from Lopilato’s native country. “She said, ‘It’s a sign!’ But there is no way we are going to call him Frank, even if it did work well for Frank Sinatra,” the singer joked.
Although the couple debated about names, Bubl ‘s main priority is to always be present in his son’s life. “I just don’t want to look back and say, ‘God, I should have been there more,’ because I have a feeling that I’ll never look back and say, ‘Jeez, I should have worked more,'” he said.

Is it too early to sign him up for guitar lessons?
American Idol winner Kris Allen and his wife Katy welcomed their first child, son Oliver Neil Allen, on Tuesday, July 30, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.
“Happy day!!!! My little stud was born today. Oliver is here people,” the singer Tweets. The baby boy weighs in at 7 lbs., 7 oz. and is 20 inches long. “Mom and baby are doing great,” the rep tells PEOPLE.
Allen, 28, and his wife revealed back in January that they were expecting. “I am really excited. I’ve always wanted to be a dad,” Allen later said. “My wife already started buying him clothes like me. He’s already got some [fedoras].”
It’s been a year of joy but also hardship for Allen. Also in January, he and Katy were involved in a serious car accident that shattered Allen’s wrist.
He has had at least three surgeries on it since, and recently said he would have limited movement in that wrist for the rest of his life – though it won’t keep him from making music.
“I will be fine,” he told fans. “After everything is healed I will be able to play guitar. I will be able to play piano. I will be able to throw a baseball with my kid. I will be able to do the things that I love to do. Just not a proper push-up.”
Update: “I’m the father of a beautiful baby girl. Her name is Winnie Rose Fallon and she’s so cute. She’s 5 lbs., 9 oz. Me and my wife are so happy,” Fallon said during his monologue Wednesday. “Thank you all for all the well-wishes on Facebook and Twitter and the blogs. I’m just so happy.”
