"This Is Us" star Alexandra Breckenridge's Christmas gift came early.

The 35-year-old actress, who is also known for her role on "The Walking Dead" has welcomed her second child, a daughter, her rep confirmed to People.

Breckenridge gave birth to Billie Breckenridge Hooper on Wednesday, December 6th. The little girl weighed 7 lbs., 13 oz., and she measuring 20 inches long.

“We are so excited to have a boy and a girl!” the new mom told People.

Breckenridge and her husband, guitarist Casey Neil Hooper, already have a 15-month-old son named Jack.


“Billie is such a sweet baby girl and Jack is such a social boy, with them only being 15 months apart they will always have a friend to play with,” added Breckenridge.

Breckenridge revealed her pregnancy back in August. She share the joyous news with an instagram post, showing herself with her hand on her pregnant stomach.

”We made another one!!” she captioned the photo. “Baby Breckenridge Hooper coming this winter.”

Breckenridge could not have been more excited about having her first girl.

“I found out I was having a girl on my birthday,” she told PEOPLE in early November. “My doctor called and I said, ‘This is the best birthday present ever!’ I really wanted to have a girl.”

The news of her daughter on the way created speculation from "This Is Us" fans this summer. Breckenridge was pregnant for the filming of season 2, so viewers conjectured that Breckenridge, who plays Kevin Pearson's ex-wife and rekindled love interest, would be pregnant on the show.

But that wasn't the case. Instead, Breckenridge shared how she hid her baby bump during filming.

“They have tricks and different clothes to hide stuff, and you can stand behind a counter and frame halfway up,” Breckenridge explained during PEOPLE’s This Is Us season 2 premiere party and screening.

“It hasn’t been too bad,” she added. “They can also digitize it out these days!”


Congratulations to the couple on their latest addition. What an adorable baby! In other news, a Kardashian sister finally confirmed her rumored pregnancy.
