Missy Peregrym is a mom — again! She gave birth to her daughter and her husband. Tom Oakley’s second child, Mela Joséphine Oakley, on June 6.

“I had the most profound experience – after a hospital birth with Otis, I chose to partner with Jo @nettlewellness and Alice @alnewby to have a water birth at home,” the 40-year-old actress caption her infant’s Instagram debut on Friday, July 8. “It’s usually all about the baby, but this time, I was also cared for in every way, before, during and after the birth. I was supported and scared, cheered on and cheered, and fully seen and heard. There were many tears, laughter, and questions. I am so grateful that I had the freedom to choose each step and was rewarded with Mela’s calm, gentle entrance into this world. (I wouldn’t describe MY part of the birth gentle 😂).”

Peregrym went on to give a sweet shout-out to her husband, who “stepped up” while she was recovering from the delivery. “In no way has our journey been easy, but it has been full and I’m incredibly blessed that he’s my partner. … @fbicbs is starting up again in a couple weeks, but I will be returning to work in September,” she wrote. “I’m relieved and grateful that I am afforded the space to bond with my family, to rest and heal and be a mother (which is harder than work!). I understand this is a luxury, and I wish every mother/parent/caretaker had this too.”

The FBIOtis, her 2-year-old son, helped star share her February pregnancy news. “My best effort at an ‘adorable’ announcement,” the Canada native captioned an Instagram video of the toddler playfully smacking her stomach. “Come on, I don’t have time for that. What I will always have time for, is this family, and I’m psyched that we are adding a new babe this summer blah blah blah. #ripsleep.”
