Gina Rodriguez is officially a mom! A rep for Rodriguez confirmed to POPSUGAR that the “not dead yet” star welcomed her first child. She and her husband, Joe LoCicero, have not yet revealed the baby’s name or gender.

Neither Rodriguez nor his wife have shared details about the arrival of their newborn. However, the actor posted a carousel of herself at “40 plus weeks” pregnant his Instagram on Jan. 27. She captioned her post, “There are only a few things I do while 40 plus weeks pregnant. #notdeadyet #notUnpregnantYet #StopAskingMyDueDate Lets take some bets on what comes first, the tv show or the baby?!? !? “

Rodriguez first declared that he was hopeful on his 38th birthday post on Instagram last July. She shared a sweet video of moments from throughout the year that culminated in her showing off a positive pregnancy test. “This birthday is very different,” he wrote at the time.

Rodriguez and LoCicero are both first-time parents. The couple first met on the set of “Jane the Virgin.” LoCicero also appeared in his wife’s films, “Miss Bala” and “Someone Great.”

In a January interview with The New York Times, she shared that Mumford and Sons will be featured on her birthday playlist. “I had a playlist of songs to listen to when I gave birth. Several Mumford & Sons songs were on the playlist, including ‘Little Lion Man,’ ‘Awake My Soul,’ and ‘I Will Wait,'” she said. “They sing like they’re connected to the center of the universe. I feel close to my ancestors, even though it’s not the kind of music my ancestors listened to.”

No word yet on whether the band may have also inspired the actor when it came time to name his first child.
